So when I first started doing my own hair I was introduced to the curly afro. It became my signature for a couple of years until I started experimenting with different styles. This style is easy to set and always looks cute! If you put more rods, your curly afro will be smaller and if you use rods in bigger sections, your hair will be bigger. Try both ways and see which one you like the most. (I like bigger but these are medium sections.)
Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions!
