Flexi Rod Set on Blow Dried Natural Hair

As mentioned in a previous post, I wanted to try out flexi rods.  I decided to do them on my blow dried hair.  My hair had been blow dried 4 days prior to attempting the flexi rods.
Blow Out
Products Used for Blow Dry: Mizani Nourishing Milk Leave In Conditioner and John Frieda Smooth Fixation Heat Protectant.
I put my hair in 16 large two strand twists and then wrapped 2 twists around each flexi rod.
Products Used to set Flexi Rods: Miss Jessie’s Baby ButterCreme
The next morning, I took down the flexi rods, loosened my twists, and fluffed fluffed fluffed!
Thanks to Afroella and Cristine Cox for giving me flexi rod advice in my previous post “I think it’s time I try Flexi Rods”

    This came out gorgeous!

  • Mija

    Great look!  This is really inspiring for me because I got my hair pressed a couple of months ago and was left with heat damage.  I don't want to get my hair pressed anymore so this is a great for when I want somewhat straightened hair.  

  • KikiRocksKinks

    *GASP* I LOOOOOOVE IT!!!! I love the fullness and the definition. Okay, I'm jocking and going to Sally's TODAY to get me some flexi rods! Lol. Oh and sis, what type of blow-dryer do you use on your hair or do you have any recommendations? I've been pulling my hair out trying to determine which dryer to purchase.

  • JenellyBean

    Thanks sis. I really enjoyed the style. The curls dropped by the end of the day.

  • Tinuke Wilson

    OMG. I love it!!!!! I lovethe way it frames your face. Very inspiring!!!!
    What kind of dryer do you use?

  • LaNeshe


  • JenellyBean

    Sorry about the heat damage sis. Blow drying is a great alternative but it's still heat. Use a heat protectant.

  • JenellyBean

    Awwwww thanks sis!
    I love it.
    My blow dryer is an old Hot Tools blow dryer. They type with a long nose. It has a comb attachment. But I don't use it bc I can get "INTO" my hair the way I really want to. So I use a blow drying brush, it's by Denman and has vents through the back to allow the air to pass through.
    I can't wait to see your results.

    I'm glad my advice was helpful :) :)

  • JenellyBean

    Thank you sis!

  • Vee_thehodgepodgefiles

    It came out really nice ! Definitely not looking like "Old lady from the South"…lol

  • JenellyBean

    Haha! Nope!
    I'll try it on wet hair n see how I like it.

  • Tamaro Tatum

    Very pretty!

  • Sylvia

    Wow! Your hair is lovely. I have a similar hair texture and was considering trying Curlformers… but maybe the flexi rods will give great results as well? I never thought of twisting my hair first before using the rods.

  • JenellyBean

    Thanks sis!
    I really liked the flexi rods. I twisted them up first because I wanted a little more texture. I'm gonna wash and twist my hair then put the flexi rods on my wet twists to see how they come out.
    I'll be sharing the results soon.

    I don't really like the curl definition that curl formers give. So I doubt I'll be trying them anytime soon.

  • KikiRocksKinks

    Sis, I tried blow drying and it was so tedious for me. It took me like 3 hours but I ended up using a plain old wide toothed comb, which didn't really work out for me! Lol, I'll keep you posted!

  • JenellyBean

    Oh no. Wide tooth comb is a no no. Section your hair and use a vent brush. Youll get stellar results.

  • KikiRocksKinks

    Duly noted, thanks lady I'm going to see if I can find one this weekend. Appreciate it!!

  • felisity1983

    Ok, wow. You’re hair looks fantastic. I think I’m going to have to try this. I hate when I’m going out with the hubby and my hair is in two strand twist or a busted twist out.

    • http://kinkycurlycoilyme.com/ Jenell : BlakIzBeautyful

      Cool. But twist outs aren’t busted.
      Use a heat protecting whenever you use heat!

  • T. Stallworth

    Your hair looks gorgeous!!!
    I will have to try this style!

    Thank you Hunny Bunny!!

    I love your look here! It is a good change up from the twist out. (: Have you ever tried using Curlformers? They are known to work on 4a hair but I was wondering if they would have the same results on 4b hair.

    • http://kinkycurlycoilyme.com/ Jenell : BlakIzBeautyful

      Thanks love!

      No I haven’t tried curlformers (yet) mainly bc I don’t really like the curl definition it gives. Never like Shirley temple curls.
