Flexi Rod Set!

Hi guys!

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:

Hair Update w/ Pictures

Hello there!

So, I haven’t been able to post because my computer wouldn’t connect to my school wifi for some reason *side eye*. But the problem seems to be fixed, so here I am.

Not too much has changed but I just wanted to do a quick hair update. My regimen is still the same, and the filtered water is coming in handy because the water here is definitely hard.

But anyway, here’s my latest growth update. I’m about 12-13 weeks post (I forgot when exactly I took these). I’m just enjoying seeing my natural curl pattern come in & trying out styles to blend these textures. Sorry the pictures aren’t great lol.

The Miracle That Is Filtered Water

So I’m sitting in my room one day looking at a half full bottle of water when I think, “Hmm I wonder if I can wash my hair with this…” As you guys may soon realize, I’m a google addict, so I went to google to see if any other people had tried it. Turns out I’m far from alone! All I saw was raving & recommendations for using bottled/distilled/filtered water at least as a final rinse.

So today I decided to give it a try. First I deep conditioned with ORS hair mayo as always. Then I cowashed with V05 Moisture Milks. I rinsed that out in the shower then did my final rinse with bottled water. I used a good bottle & a half to make sure my hair was thoroughly rinsed.

After I t shirt dried my hair I could tell the difference immediately! My hair was smooth, silky, & sooooo shiny!! I added a little leave in & sealed the moisture in with a new oil blend I’m trying (coconut, castor, olive & tea tree oil) which is also AMAZING!

I can’t believe how soft & nice my hair feels. Like, I literally can’t keep my hands out I it. It’s pretty much all the way dry now & it feels great! The ends are a bit puffy because I air dried, but overall my hair did well.

I’m not telling you to go out & buy cases of water every month, but I would definitely look into an alternative. I already have a Brita pitcher so I’ve just decided to filter my tap water one week at a time. You could also get a water softener or a shower filter. Some people even use rain water! All I have to say is at least try it once. I’m sure you’ll live the results. And if you don’t, you won’t have lost much anyway.

Happy hair styling!
