KnotChocolate replied to Peggy fancies haircare.'s discussion Making any product work? Can you? I often do!

Knotty Natural replied to KnotChocolate's discussion What's Your Signature Transition Style?
"  Along my transition, what has been working for me is the braid-n-curl. Hides the two textures, easy to maintain (I maintain it as if I had a flexi-rod set), low manipulation, easy. I am not one for styling more than twice a week, so this…"

Knotty Natural replied to KnotChocolate's discussion Problems w/ rod sets
"  Those are called perm rods and for the last 17 months of my transition I've been using them with great success in the braid and curl styles! I usually unravel very carefully...I run into the frizz on the natural hair, not the relaxed…"

Ami Tiffany replied to KnotChocolate's discussion What's Your Signature Transition Style?
