  1. 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.

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

        • 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.

  3. 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 ;-)

  4. 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.

  5. 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 who do, including the vlogger Chime, keep doing what you are doing. You are shattering stereo-types about Black hair and inspiring so many to embrace what God has given.

    • 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.

    • 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?
