Flexi-Rods on My Pressed Hair, I’m in LOVE!

So I did my new straightening technique and my hair was perfectly straight leaving the house but the humidity had plans of its own so my hair reverted a bit during the day.

My new go-to for reverted pressed hair? Flexi Rods! Put those sucka’s in (taught to tight) over night or even for a full day and I PROMISE you your hair will go right back to silky and front like nothin ever happened lol its great. All I used was extra virgin coconut oil.

(Put more rods then pictured here….put 10 ideally)

    Gorgeous hair! How often do you press? I’m thinking of trying a light press and curl every week. Do you think that’s too often? My hair seemed to grow quickly when I washed weekly with a relaxer, but I’ve only been washing every 3 weeks with press and curl.

      Thanks alot Kiana, as for how often you wash, I personally think thats definitely too infrequent, I feel its best when hair is washed weekly or every 2 weeks. Lately, I’ve been avoiding heat and it has been good for my hair. I’ve been doing braid-outs. Its the hot and humid summer time so theres really no point to straightening. I would do a press and curl like every month or so, other then that, I try to incorporate as many air dry styles as I can.
