I must say when it comes to a wild but controlled look of curls, this is a no brainer. The Flexi-rod is like a well known secret amongst the naturally curly hair community. These flexible bands are soft and squishy and actually molds your hair into curls with NO HEAT. They are the cheapest way to get get your hair curled besides twist outs and braid outs (because they are free)
The benefits are obvious but the negatives are that the rods aren’t that awesome after about 10 uses. So you will have to constantly repurchase these. You will love your curls enough to do this at least once a month trust me.
