YOU PEOPLE WILL PRAISE ANYONE AS LONG AS THEY HAVE LONG HAIR

I hate trolls… why are you on this website if you have something negative to say on every article. Obviously you have nothing better to do with your time. Why not find something you actually find interesting instead of knocking other people’s opinions?

very creative!lol! I hate sleeping in foam rods or anything that makes it hard to get comfortable.Bubble wrap???gotta be comfortable right?

sosmo0th

her hair is to DIE for ugh! lol

Does it work for all hair types??
I don’t think it will on 4C

I’m all for innovation, but I truly don’t understand why anyone would do this. Curlers are not expensive, and if push comes to shove, you can cut up a paper bag or a rag and do this. In fact, if you are so poor that you can’t buy curlers (from the dollar store), I doubt that you have bubble wrap lying around anyway – ain’t like you’re ordering stuff from Amazon and having it shipped to you.

People stay making things complicated.

I would also wonder what chemicals are in the plastic.

THIS IS DUMB

HeavnsGirl

@Tina

It really is.

Annie

I think it’s a good idea but I am concerned about any possible chemicals used to treat the bubble wrap.

Courtney

Creative. It was a girl on Youtube that used ripped t-shirts to form some curls.

Marta Daniels

I don’t think I plan to attempt this, but I think it’s pretty awesome that she did this! Her hair is amazing!

Gorgeous hair! I so admire all of these natural beauties who have the patience to allow their hair to grow long and beautiful. I just don’t have the patience. My hair is just above my shoulders and I’ve decided to cut it off to a tiny little afro. I’m a mom of two small children and a wife to a very needy (in a good way) husband. As it grows longer I find that I don’t have time to care for my hair and keep it styled in such a way that would compliment me. But to all the beauties… Read more »

Love Chime and her hair but I think credit should be given due to beautyklove on youtube. She was the originator of the style so far as I know. To be fair to Chime though when asked how she came up with the idea she did mention once that a subscriber suggested it to her after seeing another youtuber although the name of the youtuber was never given.

Love the big curls!

@cocomo, my Grandmother (from SC) use to make curlers from brown paper bags.

Necessity is the mother of invention and we are an inventive, creative people, lol 😉

LBell

*psst* That brown paper bag trick still works… 😉

C in Colorado

Awesome. Love her thick hair!

cocomo

reminds me of when my grammy use to use news paper to curl her hair

Stace

I used tooth picks a couple of times …one to roll the hair and the other to hold it in place…like chop sticks….worked really well.

Knotty Natural

My nana used spit to set her hair and a brown paper bag to roll it up!

HeavnsGirl

Spit??

Zheahra

My thoughts exactly.

Fairy

This will not look the same on shorter hair. I definitely like the idea though. Like the commenter above said, looks comfortable!!!

Zee

I agree…for shorter hair, just use straws….

The Natural Haven

I can imagine working with a smaller roll or bubble wrap for shorter hair e.g roll the wrap 2-3 times to form the roller.

Fairy

Yes, but would you get the same results. I don’t believe so.

RissaKatharine

You would. All flexi-rods are is pressed together plastic. If you’d been natural for long enough, you would know that if you wrap a strand of wet natural hair around ANYTHING long enough for it to dry, it will take on it’s shape.

It’s not exactly rocket science.

silkynaps

Pretty. Cost effective. Seems like that technique would be more comfortable than flexis. Also seems like that technique yields better results than flexis…but that could also be the way it looks with her hair.
