Achieving beautiful, bouncy curls is a dream for many, and with the right tools and techniques, it's easier than you might think. Flexi rods are a fantastic way to achieve those stunning, well-defined curls that turn heads. In this blog, we'll take you through the process of styling your hair using flexi rods and a few key products, including the Curls and Naturals sulfate-free shampoo, Curls and Naturals leave-in conditioner, Atone with Nature Silky Texture Foam Wrap, and Coconut WowOils! for that perfect finish.
Step 1: Preparing Your Hair
Before you start styling your hair with flexi rods, it's essential to ensure that your hair is clean and well-conditioned. To do this, follow these steps:
a. Shampoo: Begin by washing your hair with Curls and Naturals sulfate-free shampoo. This gentle, sulfate-free formula will clean your hair without stripping it of its natural oils. Make sure to rinse thoroughly to remove all shampoo residue.
b. Condition: After shampooing, apply Curls and Naturals leave-in conditioner to your hair. This will help hydrate your hair, making it more manageable and ready for styling.
Step 2: Apply Atone with Nature Silky Texture Foam Wrap
Now that your hair is clean and conditioned, it's time to apply a styling product that will help set your curls. The Atone with Nature Silky Texture Foam Wrap is perfect for this purpose. Follow these steps:
a. Section your hair: Divide your hair into small sections to make the styling process more manageable.
b. Apply the foam wrap: Take a small amount of the foam wrap and work it through each section of your hair. This product will help your curls hold their shape and give your hair a silky, smooth texture.
c. Use a wide-tooth comb: To ensure even distribution of the product, use a wide-tooth comb to detangle your hair gently.
Step 3: Wrapping Your Hair with Flexi Rods
Now comes the fun part! Flexi rods are flexible, bendable rods that you'll use to create your curls. Here's how to wrap your hair with them:
a. Take a flexi rod: Start by taking a flexi rod and positioning it at the end of a hair section.
b. Wrap your hair: Begin wrapping your hair around the flexi rod, moving from the tip to the root. Keep the rod close to your head, and make sure your hair is wrapped tightly for well-defined curls.
c. Secure the rod: Bend the ends of the flexi rod to secure it in place.
d. Repeat: Continue this process for all the sections of your hair until you've wrapped your entire head.
Step 4: Undo the Rods with Coconut WowOils!
After your hair is set in the flexi rods, it's time to let them do their magic. Allow your hair to dry completely, which may take several hours or overnight. Once your hair is dry, it's time to reveal those gorgeous curls:
a. Gently remove the rods: Carefully undo the rods from your hair. Be patient and gentle to prevent frizz or damage to your curls.
b. Apply Coconut WowOils!: To add a beautiful shine and tame any frizz, use a small amount of Coconut WowOils! Apply it to your hands and run them through your curls, scrunching them to define the shape.
Step 5: Maintenance with Coconut WowOils!
To maintain the health and luster of your curls, continue using Coconut WowOils! as a daily hair oil. It will help keep your hair moisturized and frizz-free while providing a pleasant coconut scent.
