First, let me say that I have NEVER had so many rods on my head at one time in my life! But I was so focused on "small sections for smoother results" that I not only used all of the rods I had been using as a transitioner, but I had to open up another pack of 12.
How long did I have them on my head, you ask? All night long (cue Lionel Richie)!!! Yes, I slept in them. I find it odd that I really don't have the issues that some people have when I comes to sleeping in rods. I don't know if my mind & body revert to my childhood days or what, but I slept quite well in all those rods. By the time I woke up, though, I had to take them out immediately because my head looked and felt like I had on a space helmet, lol.
I began with doing a hot oil treatment the night before with some EVOO, Castor oil & rosemary essential oil. Please don't ask the benefits of the rosemary. I know it has benefits but I use it because rosemary is one of my favorite herbs and I absolutely adore the smell. Anyway, I left the treatment in under a plastic cap overnight. The next day I washed my hair with my Head & Shoulders itchy Scalp Formula shampoo & conditioner and did a deep conditioner also. I used my own leave in based on the kimmaytube recipe and detangled after applying the leave-in. For the roller set I used the Jane Carter Solution Wrap & Roll.
See for yourself!
