My most recent video is an extension of the Guide to Curls for 4C Hair video series. In this video I show you how to achieve a cute and curly up do with flexi-rods on my 4C natural hair. This style is great because it will last for at least 3 days since the curls are on top of your head and they won’t be smushed when you sleep and the bulk of your hair will be protected in a Dutch braid. Great for the girl on the go and as a special occasion style (I wore it to my mother’s wedding).

I used Bee Mine Moisturizing Cream and Bee Hold Curly Butter to set the flexi rods. I absolutely love the Bee Mine products. They’re both light weight creamy products that with a dash of castor oil kept my hair soft and moisturized  I had super soft and bouncy curls that held all day. I’ve convinced my little brother to grow his hair out. I’m totally amused that I am the only one in my immediate family with coarse hair and I want to see how curly is hair gets. But he has SUPER dry hair, so he’s been using the Bee Mine Moisturizing cream and sealing with castor oil to moisturize. It was threatening to cut his hair until I let him use the Bee Mine product.

Check out my video to see how I acheived the look.

Only tip I have to offer today, aside from the video — well it’s in the video. Do this style on DRY HAIR!!!! You’ll see in the video but even damp hair will pose a problem. Air dry or blow dry on low to ensure that this style is being done on DRY hair. Happy styling.
