Almost 5 weeks with No Direct Heat!!! + a Flexi Rod Set (with pix)

Hello. I am proud to say that this Sunday will make 5 weeks since my last direct hair usage. I am thankful; however, I would be a liar-liar if I didn't say that it is extremely tempting to flatiron. Yesterday, I could not find anything to do to my hair. I was itching to run a flatiron through it. THANKFUL, what stopped me was the fact that I was actually doing an overnight DC. WHEW!!! I believe that if that wasn't on my hair that I would have went through with it. I am still heat-free and I am willing to press forward. I am very limited to the styles that I can do, so it is getting a tad bit boring, but I will maintain. I have searching through my mental hair rolodex in search of a hair style. I haven't worn rods or straw curls or tiny spirals (IDK what everyone call them) since 2010. I was so excited about trying them again. I invested in getting enough 1/4" and 3/8" flexi rods that will do my entire head.

This is how my wash day went:
1. I shampoo'ed my hair well with my Salon Care Shampoo
2. I DC'ed with my Moition's Moisturing Conditioner. I bagged my hair with this conditioner for about 45 minutes. I put on my bonnet and DC overnight. I did not rinse until 8p.m. the following evening.
3. After rinsing out my DC, I conditioned washed my hair with the same conditioner.
4. I allowed my hair to towel dry some.

*********After my hair was no longer dripping wet, I prepped my hair for set:
1. I sprayed my hair with Aphogee Keratin and Green Tea Spray.
2. I applied my setting lotion of choice to my hair.
3. I followed up with my Foam and Set Lotion.
4. I began to set my hair until it was entirely done.

I sprayed some heat protectant over my head. I wrapped my head up and went to sleep.

The following day, I decided to get under the hood dryer for about an hour. My hair was still damp in areas. After an hour, I allowed my hair to cool. I took down the rods, and I applied a small amount of hold spray to my hair. I got back under the dryer for one minute. Then, COMPLETE!

My thoughts, I believe that I will do this again. I really like it. My hair is a little dry, so I will need to come up with something that helps moisturize my hair when I am using setting lotion.  Do I like the cold rods or the flexi rods? It is so much easier to sleep in the flexi rods, but the seep is still rough to come by. Lol. 

My brother was graduating from community college. I decided to spruce up for his ceremony. I hope you all liked it. So, please give me any input, especially about keeping moisture. 


  1. I like it a lot, it makes me want to try a smaller rod for my flex-rods. This is really cute on you!

  2. Congrats on being 5 weeks heat free, I know its hard sometimes lol

  3. Your flexi rod set is too cute. Miss you loads, should write soon xx
