CURLY HAIRSTYLES USING FLEXI RODS
In this hairstyle, you will create your curls using flexi rods instead of curling iron or any other way you know off to create curls. This is the safest method of creating natural curls in your hair as it doesn’t involve any heat which might damage, or break your hair.
HOW TO CREATE & STYLE CURLY HAIRSTYLES USING FLEXI RODS
Begin by washing your hair with clean cold water. During the washing process, condition and detangle your hair by combing through to remove any knots.
After ensuring that all your hair is thoroughly clean and detangled, apply a leave-in conditioner and setting products to your hair. Evenly distribute the conditioner and products along the entire hair on your head starting from the roots to the ends of your hair.
Now it’s time to part or section your hair to make it ready for the application of the flexi rods. You are going to part and comb out 1 or 2 inch section of your hair which you will use to put the flexi rods to create curls in your hair.
Before applying or putting the flexi rods, fold an end paper over your hair and slide it to the ends of your hair.
You can now wrap the ends of your hair around the base of a flexi rod for that particular section you have created. Then roll the hair vertically towards the roots. Secure the flexi rod into place. You can do this bending it.
Repeat the above process till when all the hair all over your head is finished. When applying the flexi rods, remember to always start from the back and work up to the front.
Allow your hair to dry by sitting under a bonnet dryer for about 35 to 60 minutes. This will allow the curls to set when your hair dries with the rods in.
You can feel the ends of your hair before getting out of the dryer to make sure that they are thoroughly dry. When your hair is completely dry, carefully remove the flexi rods without altering the shape of the curls.
I think now you are good to go after removing the rods. Just apply small quantities of oil to your hair to make it look shinny and more attractive.
Alternatively, you can separate the curls for a fuller, voluminous look. Your curls will look sexy, bouncy and attractive after separating them.
You are now good to go, just apply a lighter hold hairspray and you will be good to go make heads turn and necks bend at your place of work or along the streets.

NATURAL CURLY HAIRSTYLES
Sometimes you might want to wear your hair naturally curly. The best thing to do when you are wearing your hair naturally curly is to have a lot of time on your hair more especially when you have a lot of hair on your head. You have to keep your hair moisturized always, allow your hair to dry, mention it.
When applying your products to your hair, you need to apply it a section at a time. It will be hygienic if you first wash your curly hair before applying any products to it.
Get a small section of hair, apply the product from the root to the ends and comb it through thoroughly to ensure uniform distribution of the products.
After applying the products to your hair, allow the curls to set. Don’t manipulate your curls while they dry coz if you do, you will cause them to become frizzy, dry looking and fuzzy. You can use a diffuser, go under a dryer or just allow the curls to naturally dry when seated under a shade.
When your curls have dried, you can run your fingers through to separate them and style them around your head in a way you want them to look like.

NO HEAT BEAUTIFUL BOUNCY CURLS
There are many different ways you can create curls without necessarily applying any heat tool to your hair. In this case, we will share with you another beautiful no heat curly hairstyle which every black woman should try for bouncy and sexy curls. Come with me as I walk you through the step by step directions on how to create these no heat beautiful bouncy curls.
HOW TO CREATE & STYLE NO HEAT BEAUTIFUL BOUNCY CURLS
Begin with dry hair. With dry hair I mean a day or two dry hair which is moisturized and tangle free.
Part your hair to the side of your own preference then look at yourself in the mirror in front of you and smile. Girl you look hot, attractive and cute. LOL
You will now section off the rest of your hair so that you work on a small section at a time. Add some products to each section you are going to work on to help set the knots. Add the product from the roots down as you go towards the ends of your hair strands.
If you need tighter and bouncy curls, you should make smaller knots to achieve such curls. For big knots, the curls will deform or lose their shape shortly after styling thus the need to opt for either small or smaller knots.
To create the knots, divide the strands of hair in that section into two then twist against each other till the ends of your hair. Wrap the ends of your hair around the base or roots of that twist and secure in place with a bobby pin or two.
Repeat the above 2 steps till when all your hair is put into knots and secure in place. Leave the knots for a night so that the curls will be able to set. You can cover your head with a satin cloth or scarf when going to bed and remember to use a satin pillow case as they won’t absorb the products from your hair maintaining the moisture in your hair as compared to cotton and other fabrics which will absorb the products in your hair depriving the hair of its moisture making it dry and frizzy.
The following morning, gently remove the bobby pins and untwist the knots. Add some oil to your curls to make them shine and prevent or reduce on frizz. When you are separating the twists to create curls, add some oil to your finger tips to avoid frizz.
Run your fingers gently through your hair to make it fuller and look more voluminous. You may lift the roots of the curls using a wide tooth comb and you will be good to go.
