Super Defined Curls Using Flexi Rods

Divas,

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

  • Comb
  • 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.

Martino Cartier Flat Iron Review

Divas,

Have you been searching for the perfect flat-iron?? Well I have found it!! Finally after searching for years for  good flat-iron, this martini Cartier Flat iron has replaced my ceramic flat-iron that broke years ago. I have fried, heat damaged my hair trying to get my hair straight. In all honesty if you have natural hair like me.. you hair can get bone straight ad will possibly only stay straight for about a week minus the humidity! This flat iron was purchased for $50 during the on TV ad special promotion. It is online at HSN.com for $119.00 So with all of that being said I introduce to you the Martino Cartier Flat Iron.

How it worked on my hair?

Ladies if you didn’t know I have natural hair that natural waves, and curls. I did add any oil or other products to my hair besides a heat protectant when I blow dried my hair. So as you can see I my hair is blow dried out.

I tried the one pass test with using a chunky piece of hair. Now for black women usually the smaller and thinner the hair is you will obtain better smoother and straighter results. This is my thick piece of hair.

This was my results from only going through my hair one time. I was highly shocked to see such great results. When I saw martini do this on TV I was shocked and was like okay I must try this!

However I still went ahead and did a second pass and curled my hair while straightening it. I have never achieved such great results without using the chase method or any type of oils. This flat-iron left my hair shiny full of body and bounce.

My Favorite feature

This flat-iron is gold titanium plated and the plates tilt in the direction you are flat ironing your hair. this is a great feature when you are curling your hair. It makes the hair glide easily when turning your hair to curl it!
