Thanks. Im going to try that braiding tip.No prob. Heres the pics from my 3rd set. I found kairox on youtube who is a flexi rod queen and she says to braid the root of each section about an inch and a half before rolling it. OMG it works so well!! I cut 4 inches off my hair last night and I think flexi rods will for sure be my everyday style! Thanks for letting me voice my self here lol.
