Jumbo Flexi Rod Set on Natural Hair

Hey Curlies,

After getting some motivation from YouTube, I became super excited to play in my hair.

My failed attempted at a Curlformers set last week (My hair didn't come out as clean after washing as I wanted...it got late...I went to bed lol), I went back to the basics and did a flexi rod set.

In my previous post I mentioned the day before I went to the beauty supply store, which I haven't been to in what seems like ages. I picked up some items and had to make myself leave so I wouldn't go broke.

Here was my wash day process:


My hair was very, very dry from wearing this style all week, so I split my hair into four sections, sprayed my hair with some water and applied TRESemme Naturals Conditioner generously to each section. I then created buns in each section.


I completed this next step section-by-section: Rinsed the section of the conditioner, added Shea Moisture's Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo, rinsed, applied Shea Moisture's Jamaican Black Castor Oil Conditioner, finger detangled, rinsed, two-strand twisted the section, moved on to the next.

This process took about 15 minutes.


This was the quickest roller set I've ever done and it could be since the rollers were bigger, the sections were also larger. Working in each section, I used about four rollers per section. I used Lotta Body Mousse Wrap to style. Overall this took about 30 minutes.

I did not use heat, instead I let my hair air dry for about five hours before going to bed with the rollers in.

Here were my results:

I thought the results were fabulous! To top it all off, it only took 30 minutes to install the rods.

The downside...I forgot how uncomfortable these things were to sleep in. It could have been worse as I actually did get good sleep, but it took a lot of adjusting to get to that point. I couldn't wait to get the rollers out this morning.
