Wash Day 2.9 Flexi-rods

After taking out my flexi-rods
As my semester is coming to a close my wash days have to  be pre-planned and organized ahead of time. I will be getting a relaxer after my finals so the next few wash days are crucial do to the amount of new growth I have/will have.

Pre-pooed using grapeseed oil with VO5 Moisture Milk's Strawberries and Creme layered over the grapeseed oil. There is no real rational as for why I used these two, but I have been pretty heavy on castor oil this week so I didn't think I needed to add it. I left my pre-poo on for an hour under a plastic cap and bonnet.

Washed with Organix Awapuhi Ginger Shampoo in 2 sections. This is  probably one of the most tedious things that I have incorporated in my HHJ. I really do not like washing in sections lol, but as I get further in my stretch is seems necessary.

I sprayed my Black Tea Rinse in the shower to assist with clean up and left it on for another 20 minutes.

To deep condition I used the remainder of my Kera Care Humecto Creme conditioner under my conditioning cap for 50 minutes. I also just purchased a 16oz bottle today from for on 19.99. It's on sale now so if anyone is low I would suggest getting it now. Next time I repurchase this product I may have to upgrade to the 5lb tub.... it's just the best stuff out!

I finished in the shower with Paul Mitchell's Super Skinny Daily Treatment and left it on for 7 minutes before rinsing out. I love how much this makes a difference on my drying time, I have even began to use it during my co-wash day on the weekend.

T-shirt dried for about 8 minutes then detangled with Aphogee Keratin Green Tea Leave-In and Paul Mitchell's Super Skinny Serum. Today's wash did have a little more shedding than last week but I think I need to make a new batch of Black tea for my rinse.

Then I installed about 16-17 flexi-rods on 75% dry hair using only grape seed oil and water. I was going to use a wrap lotion but of course I let a friend borrow it back in December and the rest is history lol. Gotta love friends. Here are the results.
Finished product not too bad

After an extremely uncomfortable night of sleep... ( I may need to start looking into curlformers for over-night sleeping and save the flexi-rods for under the dryer)

Out enjoying the spring weather :)
I put these bad boys in with no rhyme or reason lol


  1. *Work* those curls honey! I have tons and tons of flexi rods in all sizes but every time that I think about installing them--my arms get tired.

    I love your lipcolor in the first pic! It totally suits you!

    1. Haha thanks KLP! I want to get some smaller ones or maybe even attempt a straw set. I am loving anything but straight hair right now.
      The lip color is a mix of a couple pinks that I have but thanks! <3

    I am typing this while deep conditioning with Kerecare Humecto :-)
    I hear you for sure on that product. I am going to run out at some point and as I have moved back home, I cannot find it here :-( Will need to start looking at websites to order it!
    Keep up the good work!
