If I wasn’t sold on the benefits of pineappling ones hair at night to preserve curly styles before this week, I am now. Below is my hair at day 4 (yesterday) after my flexi rod set. Whoever invented “pineappling” thank you because my curls wouldn’t have survived this long.
My hair lost a bit of volume and the curls started to elongate a bit but separating many curls into smaller sections “perked” my hair right up. As pretty as the initial curls were when I removed the flexi rods, I think I prefer the bigger, a bit puffier curls. Oh, and while separating the curls I also removed as many shed hairs I could.
Normally I moisturize and seal when rocking a flexi rod set but surprisingly I did not moisturize and seal at all this week. My hair was still moisturized from my wash day, which has also helped me maintain my curls since moisturizing always makes them drop a bit.
These curls will go bye-bye tonight though. I’ll use conditioner to helped detangle my hair very well before co-washing and then proceeding with my normal wash day routine.
