As a professional DIY girl, I have pretty much tried every styling tool under the sun. One that I found pretty hard to master are flexirods. The results can vary from ‘perfect’ frizz free curls, curls with texture or loose waves. It all depends on your natural texture and whether your start with wet, dry or straightened ´hair. Here are some helpful tutorials.
1. Perfect Curls
The result here is really quite perfect. I believe the combination of setting on damp hair with a holding product and using small sections is vital to achieving the result. The size of the flexirod will determine the size of the curl and finally allowing hair to dry completely is necessary to stop frizz.
2. Textured Curls
In this video, the flexirods form curls but the natural texture of the hair is still retained. This is in part because the hair being set was not really as wet as in the ‘perfect curl’ video. More of the natural texture of the hair is retained as the rod is wrapped. Using fewer and larger rods lessens the amount of time spent to achieve the look but the compromise is a little more frizz and texture.

3. The Volume and Waves Look
Starting out from blown out hair, flexi rods can give volume and a large wave-like curl. The dryness of the hair means that the blown out texture of the hair is retained.
Ladies, which of these looks do you like best? And do you plan to try flexi rods this summer?
