curlers for curly hair

i ordered some flexi rods on amazon, and they came today! those of you who know me know i have serious kinky curly hair. it's pretty unruly. now you might be htinking "so why do you need curlers??" well, to make every curl uniform, of course. i don't think it's cheating to use curlers on curly hair.
 the first i heard of flexi rods was a youtube video i stumbled across by an african american woman. i couldn't get this out of my head and had to have these things at all costs. so i scored some. woot! the only thing is, i tried to look for a sign of white people using them, but found nothing on the internet. o well, i'll just be a pioneer!
 i'm going to was my hair tonight and sleep in them. i cant wait to see what happens! it's either going to be a glorious success or a total failure. fingers crossed!

if you have curly hair, here is some advice i've gleaned from years having it:
  1. get rid of your brushes. brushy is not your friend, she's your frenemy. you need a comb in like every size available
  2. get rid of shampoo and just use conditioner.
  3. use a leave-in conditioner. i use the shea butter one. i recommend shopping for hair products in the ethnic hair care section of the store.
  4. do. not. touch. your. hair. when. it's. dry. ninja kick anyone that tries to!
  5. let your hair air dry. 
  6. love your hair and it will love you back!
