I love your web­site! It is very infor­ma­tion­al and has been help­ing me on my jour­ney. I have been 3 months tran­si­tion­ing. Some days are absolute­ly frus­trat­ing, but then com­ing to this site and read­ing the many arti­cles, let’s me know that one day it will be bet­ter lol.

Have you ever thought about pub­lish­ing an ebook or guest author­ing on oth­er blogs?
I have a blog cen­tered on the same sub­jects you dis­cuss and would love to have you share some stories/information.
I know my read­ers would appre­ci­ate your work. If you are even remote­ly
inter­est­ed, feel free to send me an e mail.

This is some­thing I have been mean­ing to try out for some time now.I sure will do it as soon as I get my own rods


Thank you so much for the tuto­ri­al. Like so many African-Amer­i­can wom­en, my hair has began to thin pre­ma­ture­ly. So, to min­i­mize heat and chem­i­cals, my hair styl­ist began uti­liz­ing perm rods. As a result of the style only last­ing a week, I desired try to cre­ate the look myself, which turned out beau­ti­ful. Again thank you so much!

Awesome regrow hair programs

My friend encour­aged We would pos­si­bly this way inter­net site. He or she had been total­ly suit­able. This par­tic­u­lar dis­trib­ute tru­ly made the day time. You should not pic­ture exact­ly how con­sid­er­ably moment I’d used in this infor­ma­tion! Many thanks!


Her hair turned out to look beau­ti­ful! I’ve done this many times before on my tran­si­tion­ing hair. I’m cut­ting my relaxed ends off soon, prob­a­bly mid-sum­mer. Look­ing for­ward to rock­ing a full head of nat­u­ral hair start­ing with the­se styles since my hair would be medi­um length.

I would def­i­nite­ly rock this style! I’m much bet­ter at perm rods than flex-rods, though. Per­fect­ing this method would tru­ly take me some time..lol


Cute! That is def­i­nite­ly a style I would try. I would love to see more how-to videos like this on this site (I know they’re all on youtube, but I don’t have a lot of time to search and some­times I don’t even know what I’m look­ing for!)

YouTube is DEFINITELY over­whelm­ing some­times! I love com­ing across select­ed videos, espe­cial­ly when I know I want to try a new look but have no clue what I want to do (twists, braids, updo, straight hair, curls etc). 

Some of my favorite users are TiffanyN­i­chols­De­sign (lots of updos), Sim­plY­ounique (good tips on hair growth and easy styles) and Blak­IzBeau­ty­ful. When I’m in the mood to browse, I start with their pages!


I love how your hair turned out. I have to try this on my daughter’s hair. Great video!


Yes I am lov­ing the arti­cles today, I love the style icons tho, those are my favorite!


This web­site is on FIRE today! Great posts!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I tried flexi-rods and it was an utter dis­as­ter :( My hair looked like dry fin­ger coils LOL! Not one to give up though! This arti­cle is right on time, as I’ve been mean­ing to see how nat­u­rals w/ hair as curly as mine (4a/b) han­dle the ends of the hair.
