So you’ve got the bundles poppin, or your hairline is laid on the frontal, but you could still use something new huh? Well girl, get you some Flexi rods. Flexi Rods are a great way to get body and curl without adding heat to your unit, bundles or natural hair. About 7 inches long, flexi rods are foam rods that are flexible to move and bend in various directions.What’s more, they come in various thickness sizes, each creating a different curl type. FYI – The thinner the rod, the tighter the curl.
Installed similarly to the standard roller, you take a small portion of damp hair (using mousse, or gel) and wrap it around the rod. It’s important to keep the hair taut during this process to get uniform curls. Roll right up towards the scalp, and fold the ends of the rod inwards, to lock into place.
Here are our top 5 reasons why we recommend flexing with Flexi Rods:
Girl, you can get 6+ sizes to create any type of look you’re going for. Whether you’re in
