So I tried a flexi rod set Friday and I love my hair! I think I’ve found my go to transitioning style (for as long as it works anyway).
I started with my basic regimen:
Protein DC on dry hair with ORS Hair Mayo, Shampoo CON Sulfate Free Shampoo, Moisturizing DC with Aussie Moist 3 Min Miracle, then T shirt dried my hair. I used Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Leave In and an oil blend(olive, coconut and castor) on a small section of hair then rolled it with half inch flexi rods (the red ones)
I actually did it on a Friday, and it didn’t dry completely by that night. So as I took each flexi rod out I two strand twisted that section of hair. I did that through my entire head, then left it while I got dressed to go out. By the time I took the twists down I absolutely loved the look! Plus rolling my hair helps to stretch my new growth and keep it soft.
I’m on day 3 of my hair and it still looks pretty good. I maintain it using the pineapple method at night. For those that son’t know what that is, I gather all my hair at the top of my head. Then I put a loose scrunchie on it (just once so it won’t leave a dent or be too tight). Then I put a satin cap on top. It helps to keep the curls from getting crushed while you sleep, and gives you a little volume the next morning as well.
Anyways I’m loving it! Here are a few pics:
