My first flexi-rod set!

It was pretty much a fail!

Setting my hair on the rollers was fairly quick and easy (it only took me about 35-40 minutes compared to over an hour for setting on magnetic rollers!). Drying, however, was a different story. My entire head would not fit under my Conair table top therefore, the top dried but the back and the sides were still damp. I refused to sleep in the dryer so I used my hand-held blow dryer on low heat and high airflow to kind of dry the rest. Overall it took an hour and a half to "dry" but I had some damp spots in the back that didn't curl as well.

The look was cute while it lasted but my hair frizzed up something serious later in the night!

All in all, though, I will definitely be doing it again and I want to perfect flexi-rods!!!

Any tips on how to do the perfect flexi-rod set?

Questions? Additional comments? Email me at


  1. Nice set. Maybe the process was a bit of a fail lol but the results are nice! I'm also trying to perfect the flexi rod set

  2. I would not call this set a fail at all. It looks great. Once you get the dryer issue solved, your sets will be unstoppable.

  3. I wouldn't call it a fail, either. I think the result was really cute. As @MrsDjRass said, there are just a few kinks that need to be worked out.

  4. The result seemed to turn out very nice. Definetly not a fail. I understand your frustration with the process. Can't wait to see how the next one turns out.

  5. Thanks ladies! I meant more of a technical fail in addition tothe fact that my hair frizzed up within a couple of hours (probably because it was not completely dry...)

    But thanks again guys! :)

  6. I really don't think you failed. Looks nice to me. I am also looking to perfect a flexi rod set.

  7. I think your hair looks pretty effing great!
