A few years ago I composed a post describing how I curl my hair with flexirods. It was titled How to Achieve Marilyn Monroe Pin Curls with Flexi-Rods (verbal) if you're curious.
Although I still utilize flexirods and find them to be the most convenient hair safe/no heat way to curl my hair...I was finding that my damp brush method just wasn't working for me anymore.
For 1. Sometimes my thick (naturally curly) hair just wouldn't adhere to the flexirods, which led to
2. a frizzy mess
So after reading an article about Dita Von Teese, and her success with Hot Rollers, I decided to give them a go myself. Even though hot rollers are definitely considered a heat method for curls...hot rollers don't get anywhere near as hot as traditional curling irons, so there's no risk in frying or burning your hair. AND though the roller itself does get a little singe worthy, the roller is lined in velcro, so again, your hair doesn't come in contact with hot metal. Most hot rollers are usually held in place by heated ceramic clips or shells, that work together with the heated velcro rollers to give you loose curls full of body.
Loose curls are fine and all, but I prefer 40's Pageboy hair myself...
That's were the flexirods come in!
Just re-roll the hair once the hot rollers are removed and leave them in over night.
Here's the video tutorial now available on my YouTube channel.
Cherio! Cheerioo, Dahlings!!
