I wanted to try something different with my hair. Twist outs are fun and easy, but I decided to switch it up.
I wanted to have curly hair, but I didn't want to do a regular set with flexi rods. So, I used the flexi rods but this time I twisted my hair in 2 strand twists first.Then, I set my hair while it was still in 2 strand twists. I used Dr. Miracles Curl Care soft hold cream to moisturize my hair. Finally, I added Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion on the twists before I put them on the flexi rods.
|You can really see the difference in spacing on the larger orange rods.|
My idea worked! I set my curls and they came out longer and that made me happy!
I have tried flexi rods before, but never on twisted hair. I like this style better because the curls don't come out like perfectly spiraled barrel curls. And that makes me feel a little less like I am auditioning for a role in Little Orphan Annie. Also, the twists dry faster than my loose hair does.Click here to see a previous flexi rod on loose hair.

They are about the same length.
