Around 12:30am after some movie watching with hubby, I spontaneously decided to test out the flexi rods I bought on Friday.
I bought two different diameter sizes 7/8″ and 6/8″ both 10″ long. To set the style I used the Shea Moisture Curling Gel Soufflé.
I’ve heard that flexi rod sets work best on soaking wet hair but I knew they wouldn’t have enough time to dry if I did that, so I just applied them on damp hair.
I slept with my satin bonnet but as I’m sure you can imagine flexi rods are no fun to sleep on. But, they’re no worse than bantu knots. I kept the rods in until about 11:30am this morning. I unravelled them to find beautiful definition on hair that was unfortunately still slightly damp.
Although the definition only lasted for a few hours there is no doubt that this style has the potential to be amazing! Next time, I’ll be sure to plan my rod set and assure that they have plenty of time to dry.
Have a great day loves!

Great post! I know the feeling of getting the sudden inspiration to do a hairstyle #naturalhairbloggerproblems LOL. Love how they came out even if they were a little damp. How do you like the Coconut & Hibiscus Gel? Thanks for sharing!
And this is why naturals need to go to bed at a reasonable time! Lol! I’m definitely going to PLAN before I try it again. Thanks!
