Flexi Rods!

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Hi Guys! I was watching YouTube videos lately on how to curl hair and i saw most of the young women using "Flexi Rods". Flexi Rods are super bendable hair rods that you can use to get a number of curl or wave styles.  You can now go from straight to curly in a breeze:-) They are sold in packs of 6 and all rods are 8" long , however they go by width , depending on the length of your hair. For example, my hair would be classified as "medium-long", so i bought the 5/8 pack. Not to worry ladies , all this information is on the back of each pack. They are ideal for speed setting : let's say it's a Saturday afternoon , you have to clean the house then you have a date later on in the evening. You'd simply just put them in and clean , then in the evening you are ready to go :-) These rods also require NO pins or clips , they really just hold by themselves. Below , i have posted pictures and a video as well as a step by step guide.

  • Roll rods from tip to root on wet or dry hair. For best results , use a holding spray to make your curls last longer.
  • Make sure you wrap the hair in the direction of the way you would want it to fall , more than likely , it should be away from your face ( kinda like using a flat or curling iron)
  • Bring both ends of the rods together : Meaning , after you have rolled the hair onto the rod , make sure both ends are facing each other.
  • After a few hours , I'll say about 2 , remove rods. You can wear them as they are , or, you can either use a wide teeth comb, to undo the curls or even your fingers. These curls should last about 3 days.

TIP :THE TIGHTER YOU ROLL THE HAIR ONTO THE RODS , THE TIGHTER THE CURLS WILL BE. In the picture below , i wanted really loose curls , so i rolled them really loosely.

Here is an example of tighter curls. See pictures below. This is Curly Nikki , she is a Professional Blogger and also a Licensed Psychotherapist. 

Nikki said her curls lasted 3 days and it was because she simply just washed her hair and used the rods without using a holding spray. As you can see , on day 3 , the curls were basically flat. Oh , guys , it is important to note that with these rods , you should be really patient. The first time i did it , i didn't like the way it came out. Then i did some research and realised i did it wrong. It is therefore important to be patient , practice and do your research.

This video actually helped me to get it just right :-) Its really simple , so watch and learn. This person is actually a professional, she used a lot of products and tricks i didn't mention above. And spoiler alert!! .. the paper is for people who have uneven ends. You know sometimes you curl your hair and some parts are left out? that's what its for.

You can find these rods at any local beauty supply store. If they are not familiar with "Flexi rods" ask them for " Soft Twist Rollers".

I hope i have inspired at least ONE person to go out and be creative.
