Curls With Flexi Rods. No Heat

June 2013

I love them, I love them, I love them. Flexi rods are so great and I really love them.

I set my hair with flexi rods recently and thought to share it with you. I had been seeing flexi rods for some time in Dischem  but was not sure on whether to buy them or not. I thought my hair was too short to use them because the videos I had watched on them were on much longer hair. However, two weeks ago, on a beautiful Saturday morning I decided to buy 3 packs of 5 and try them out. That night, I curled my hair with the new flexi rods but they were too few (15 in total) to cover my whole head so I only did my bangs and one side. I banded the rest of my hair to keep it stretched. I sprayed a bit of water mixed with Aloe Vera juice and applied Shea butter before rolling my hair with the flexi rods. Put my satin scarf on and went to bed.

And these were the results on the Sunday morning. Needless to say, I will be using flexi rods to curl my hair again soon. Maybe I will buy some more to cover my entire head next time


And the back!

Have you used flexi rods on your hair before? Please share your experience in the comments section below. Better still, send some pictures to my email with the subject, “flexi Rods” and we will publish them here on the blog.

Much love, stay blessed.

Maybe they don’t know the name flexi rods. I went and checked in the dischem at Greenstone mall. They are called rollers foam. They were however not a lot left.

I have been looking for these for the last month. Didn’t know Dischem sold them. Thank you so much for sharing this valuable information with us. Now I won’t have to re-wet or wash my hair everyday to have well-defined curls.

Hi Mirle. Flexi rods will definitely curl your hair if it is long enough to curl around the rod. How long the curl will last depends on humidity, the texture of your hair and what product you use before curling. But it is not a natural curl. You can use products that instill moisture, then seal the moisture in. Don’t use products with humectants like glycerine when styling your hair so that the curls stay in your hair longer. You can get them from Dischem. I use whipped Shea butter Twist & Shine just before using flexi rods. You can use any serum, oil or even a silicone serum.
