This weekend was a blast from the past. I went to my college reunion, which was so much fun. I forgot how amazing my classmates were and years later they are even more so. It was such a great time reconnecting with everyone. And in preparation for the weekend of fun, I decided to go with a roller set because it gets my hair straight using only indirect heat plus it’s another
Low Manipulation Styles
Last week I mentioned having a few low manipulation styles in your back pocket to get you through a long relaxer stretch. And this one was an instant fave from the first time I tried it. Flexi rods sets are quick, easy and a cute hair styling option. Last weekend, I styled my hair with flexi rods after deep conditioning my ends with Chi Infra Treatment and co washing with As
These past two weeks I’ve slacking on my hair agenda.

Remember my flexi rod set from last week? Well I wanted share how it held up in the following days. Each night I would pineapple my hair to preserve the curls. When the morning came I would essentially shake and go. I did not moisturize or anything like that over the days because I wanted to minimize frizz. Below you’ll see how the set held up over 5 days.
To scratch my itch for something new, I decided to channel that energy into trying CourtneyNaturalHair’s No Heat Flexi Rod Set Tutorial (I bought some new goodies to complete the look 🙂 ). I liked her video because her end results were more like waves as opposed to spiral curls that I’ve seen with other flexi rod tutorials. Since it was going to be my first real attempt at this, I took
