i love flexi rod sets! the only problem is, when i do them i only get 1-day hair. After that my hair turns into a mess! i use motions extra firm wrap foam. i no longer desire to use a wrap foam or setting lotion because i feel like everytime i use those, my curls turn out stiff.
what products do you ladies use for your flexi rod sets that gets you a 3 days to a week style?
also do you guys use any creams or gels? i want a firm hold but not a crunchy one. like a softer curl but firm, if that makes sense?
so preferably any cream or gel suggestions?
thank you!

    Ok, I don't do flexi rod sets--I do curl former sets, but from what I've seen online, they're about the same, and if anything flexirod sets are more...sturdy, if you will. I am 9 months into transitioning, not fully natural. I do the curly girl method, and I use tressemme naturals conditioner and eco styler gel to style my hair. I wear my hair in a pineapple at night, with a scarf around my edges, and another scarf covering all of my hair. My curls last about 1-2 weeks. I hope that some of this can be helpful in your hair regimen as well.

    I do curlformers sets too. I just posted a thread about using luvnaturals leave in. This is my first time using it so ill let you know how it holds up. Before I used setting foam and my hair would hold up at least a week.
