So my hair has gone flat and the humidity got to my hair from all of the Hot Atlanta Heat! So I decided to add some curl body and bounce to my hair. Flexi Rods are a great way to add curl and definition to your hair. I will be showing you how to get a super defined curl using flexi rods.
Products & tools
- Hood Dryer (you can also air dry your hair, its totally up to you!)
- Lotta Body setting lotion
- Spray bottle
- Hair clips
- Flexi rods
- Oil of your choice
Tip: Pout 2 parts water and 2 parts Lotta Body into the spray bottle. This dilutes the Lotta Body since its very thick. it allows you hair to dry faster.
Step 1: make sure your hair is detangled make a part in the front of your hair. this is totally up to you.
Step 2: make a part in the back of your hair. Clip the rest of your hair up and away. divide that part into sections.
Step 3: Spary the Lotta Body onto one of the sections. Now take your flexi rod and begin wrapping the hair around the rod form the bottom. when you wrap your hair around the rod do a 360 degree turn and twist on the rod. (please view my video for more instructions)
Step 4: Repeat all over your hair. Sit under the hooded dryer or air dry. I ended up sitting under the hooded dryer but then I fell asleep.
Step 5: Untwist your hair off the rod. Once all the rods are out of your hair, add oil to your fingers and run all over your hair. The oil helps reduce frizz.
Step 6: Divide curls into smaller strands. make sure to separate each curl gently and curl it around your finger.
Step 7: Pick out your roots with a wide tooth comb. Shake and fluff!

Todays blog is about how to deep condition your hair. I have several deep conditioning regimes depending on what my hair needs! This method is very basic and easy and I use it as often as once a month. So lets dive into the goodness!
- Edens all natural deep conditioner/ or your favorite deep conditioner(3-4 scoops depending on hair length)
- Olive oil (1 teaspoon)
- Tea Tree Oil (3-4 squirts)
- Coconut oil (1 teaspoon)
- Deep conditioning cap
- applicator brush
- Cantu Shea butter-wash out conditioner (you will need this to co-wash your hair after you have rinsed out the deep conditioner)
- Mix the ingredients together!!
Step 1: Wash your hair thoroughly. I use the Cantu Shea Butter natural shampoo and conditioner. This is a good time to detangle your hair and put it into 4 sections. This will help when applying the deep conditioner.
Step 2: Towel dry your hair, leaving it damp. Now take down one of the sections and apply the deep conditioner. I like to use the applicator brush for my roots. make sure to apply the conditioner to the tips of your hair and rake through. Now you should have 4 equal parts with conditioner.
Step 3: Once you have applied the deep conditioner to all of your head, apply the deep conditioning cap to you head for 15-30 minutes depending on your regime. I like to leave it on for at least 30 minutes to an hour. Also if you re not in a hurry try sitting under a bonnet hair dryer, it allows the oils and conditioner to penetrate the shafts of your hair.
Step 4: Rinse out the deep conditioner thoroughly. Do Not shampoo your hair. Shampooing will remove the soft oils that were just applied to your hair.
Step 5: Co-wash your hair. I like to do this just to seal my hair. This leaves my hair feeling extra soft. To cows you hair use any rinse out conditioner to your liking. apply conditioner massage in and rinse out.
Results: Your hair should be shinny, extra soft and light weight. After deep conditioning your hair should be more manageable for any style. I decided to straighten my hair. The deep conditioner allowed me to use less heat and to easily flat iron my hair.
