Flexi Rods are flexible long rollers which create sleek, long spiral curls on natural hair. They come in different diameters; to create curls that vary in size. Flexi Rods look fancy but they are super easy to use. You roll your hair like you would with any other roller. Flexi Rod Sets are gorgeous on every hair length. I have included pictures, a video tutorial and product information to help you achieve a beautiful Flexi Rod Set.
Disclosure: I was gifted Design Essentials Naturals products to try. But I am sharing my hairstyle results on my own accord. Opinions are my own and result true to my experience. Thank you for reading.
A Flexi Rods Set can be a heatless method of stretching natural hair as well as a protective style. But you don’t have to be afraid to sit under a hooded dryer especially if you don’t want to wait all day for your hair to dry.
My hair is long and super thick so I did what’s considered a dry set. After I shampooed, conditioned and detangled my hair, I allowed it to air dry in 4-6 jumbo twist which usually takes about 24 hrs. For the style featured in the video tutorial, I did an inverted upside down braid in the back. I only rolled the crown of my head or u-shaped portion of hair. But I also have pictures of a full Flexi Rods set below. Both sets are done with red rollers, 1/2″ in diameter and 10″ long Flexi Rods.
For a flawless Flexi Rod Set, start with freshly shampooed, conditioned and detangled hair. The best styling products for this style is one with a light, flexible hold like a setting lotion or mousse. I use either Design Essential Natural Twist and Set Setting Lotion or Design Essential Natural Curl Enhancing Mousse. I like these products for roller set because they have moisturizing natural ingredients. A little bit goes a long way. They are quick drying and give you a beautiful shine. Design Essential Natural Twist and Set Setting Lotion even helped further detangle my ends for smoother curls and little or no frizz. I’m interested in trying Design Essential Composition Foaming Wrap Lotion and Mousse next because it has strengthening proteins in addition to the other properties I love.
