My first flexi-rod set!

Yesterday night, I did my first flexi-rod set. I gotta admit...I like it! I think this will be one of my staple styles. The only bad thing about it is, I don't know how long it's gonna last me because usually when I sleep on styles like these, my curls turn out flat in the morning :( So I have to sleep sitting down or with my head hanging down from my bed, so that it can last me 2 or 3 days. But other than that, I love it, and I think it's a great low manipulative style and transitioning style (for those who want to go natural). I washed and conditioned my hair like I do every week. After applying my leave-in's, I filled my spray bottle with water and Lottabody setting lotion. Then I parted and detangled each section, and rolled them up with a flexi-rod. I used 28 flexi-rods and that wasn't enough, so I had to use 6 perm rods. Here are the results!

It took me 2 hours to set these and sat under the dryer for 1 hour and air dried overnight.
