How I Do My Flexi Rods

Saturday, May 5, 2012
I had a couple requests to explain how I do my Flexi Rod set. Below is a mini picture tutorial as to how I do them. Hope this helps :)

Step 1: Moisturize and seal with SCurl No Drip Activator and Wild Growth Oil. (Optional, use foam lotion for longer lasting curls)

Step 2: Section off the hair in two (back and front). Get 2 Flexi Rods.



Step 3: Wrap the hair around the rod as if you were wrapping a rope around your finger. (Do not use the Flexi Rod as a roller. The curls won't come out nice, this is what I noticed from my personal experience). Bend the Flexi Rod at both ends to secure the hair in place.




Let the hair set overnight or for 3-4 hours.

Step 4: Unravel and lightly separate the curls for fullness.

Results:



The front came out a little straighter than expected. I love the curls and the volume I get from this style. I only use 2 Flexi Rods because it`s convenient and easy for me to sleep in since the rods are at the back of my head, not the sides causing discomfort. I`m still perfecting it but this is the method I use.

Hope this help!!

  10. Wrapped around the flexi-rod like that, my hair might actually be dry when I take it down in the morning, that is genius! I am so trying this.

  11. Your hair looks great. I usually do mine on 3 rods, but I think I'm going to try it your way, because the two on the sides when you're sleeping is definitely a bit painful at times.

  12. Sunshine thank you soooo much for posting this. I've been using flexi rods for a few years now and I always use them all over my head, like rollers. It has never curled right. I've tried your method twice now and my co-workers have been telling me how great my hair looks! Thanks again for sharing your awesome method! :O)

  17. I'm looking for exact this information that you've shared with us. you hair related blog is really amazing & I'm going to share with my online friends right now :)

  18. @Motherof3 - Yes it does work with SL hair. It will be a little shorter since the curls give a "shrinking" effect to the hair. You can adjust how tight you want the curls based on how you wrap your hair around the flexi rod. It's difficult to explain but you have to play around with it and see what works best for your hair. It's best to moisturize, seal and add a foam lotion (for hold).

    @haarverlängerung münchen - Glad this post was able to assist you! :) Thanks for your support.

    1. Flexi rods are okay to use. For the most part, they are safe to use often and gentle on the hair. Manipulation with the use of excessive heat is not good.

  23. It is pretty cool in my opinion that you can do this style with only two flexi rods! Do you think it'll work for my hair length? APL (not full APLthough).
