I was discouraged when my first flexi-rod set lasted ONE DAY. But I vowed to try it again once the weather was cooler. *Slick Rick voice* Heeeere we go…

In my usual fashion, I washed, DC’ed & roller set my hair last weekend. Due to rainy weather conditions, Giovanni became undefined & fro-ish by day 4. I was admittedly heavy-handed with the Vitamin E oil during my original roller set, so this time I dry set it (no product added). I divided it into about 11 sections, then I detangled each section & wrapped it around an 11/16 flexi-rod. After that, I put my scarf on & went to bed. BTW, these soft flexible rollers are much more comfortable to sleep on than the hard magnetic ones!

The next morning I removed the rods & separated my curls by finger twirling the hair. This method creates Shirley Temple-esque ringlets. It only took me about 20 minutes to style my hair that morning & about 15 to detangle & set my hair (the night before). PIECE-O-CAKE!

That night I pineappled & tied a scarf around my hair. The next morning I fluffed it out & discovered that my right side was almost completely straight. *MacGuyver mode* I applied some Motions pomade, brushed it back & bobby-pinned it. I’m just glad that there was Day 2 hair this time…

On the evening of Day 2, I dry twisted my curls (sans product) & tied a scarf around my head. Drum roll please…

Day 3 hair was my favorite HANDS DOWN! Can you tell? It was a little frizzy, but it still had plenty of curl definition & more volume than both days 1 & 2. Definition: curlvana.

By the end of day 3 my hair was feeling pretty dry, so I added a little bit of Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk before detangling & re-twisting. Little did I know it would all be for naught.

I was simultaneously underwhelmed & disappointed by my curls on Day 4. The hair along my front hairline (ear to ear) was almost completely un-curled, so I twisted & pinned it away from my face. Then I smoothed the hair along my temples back & just tucked it behind my ears.

Notice that my kool-aid smile has left the building…

It was fun while it lasted, but I washed it out on Day 5.
