What Are Flexi Rods & How Can You Use Them For Defined Curls?


Cook, Motivationist and Nutritionist.

While flexi rods are a great heatless solution to hair styling, they also come with their own unique weaknesses. For example, flexi rods can’t be used on extensions or otherwise synthetic hair, as it only works on human hair. If you’re someone who wears wigs or extensions, you may not be able to achieve the same results that flexi rods promise. There are a number of guides on prepping wigs for the best styling results, but that doesn’t assure everyone the same result. Heatless curls are also an innately tiring process, and you’ll want to make sure you have enough time to wash, dry, and set your hair before putting in flexi rods.

In addition, you’ll have to be careful about using flexi rods in a timely manner, especially if you’re only able to wear them for a few hours. If you have thin or brittle hair, the flexi rod’s pull may cause tension to the scalp. To minimize the potential pain, apply rods closer to the ends of your hair, and place in a pineapple ponytail or bun to maintain for multiple days. As always, remember this: No matter how you style your hair, it’s going to look great.
