|The crew from the original Star Trek series (aired 1966-1969)|
Okay. Not exactly "where no one has gone before", but definitely a new arena for me. The arena of rollersets, that is.
So…remember my recent hair dryer purchase. Well, I’ve since tested it out with protein treatments for my daughter and myself. Aannnnd.... *drumroll please*, I also tried my hand at my 1st flexi-rod set.
I think I did pretty good as a first-timer. Just a few areas that I will be sure to address the next time.
For instance, in some places, I set it a bit tight so my head is a little sore here and there. Secondly, I definitely have to improve on my endpaper threading skills. I can't tell you how many times I had to redo the ends. I also made the mistake of using too much tension to rod a tiny bundle of strands that I missed when setting some hair on a big roller. Lazily, instead of simply redoing the large rollerset to include the tiny bundle, I used one of the small, red flexi-rods, which lead to a few strands getting uh, "lost in the fire".
What can I say?.....
And lastly, the next time I attempt this set will be during the daytime. This took a while. I promise you, I was all but ready to throw in the towel and just twist the rest of my hair, halfway thru the process. But I chose to tough it out and ride it all the way to the end.
I have to admit that I kinda wanted to go somewhere after removing the flexi-rods and separating the curls a bit. =)
Mop Leave-In Conditioner (Curlmart or Ulta stores)
Jane Carter Solution “Wrap & Roll” (JaneCarterSolution.com, Curlmart, most natural health stores)
Jane Carter Solution “Hair Nourishing Serum”
Purple, blue, orange and red flexi-rods. (Any beauty supply place store)
Products I plan to use next time:
Jane Cater Solution “Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner” in place of Mop leave-in
And a small amount of whatever pomade I purchase by then to smooth the flyaways.
If any of you, have successfully done a flexi-rod set, please share what you did. Or share what & if you tried anything different.
