4 Tips You Need To Know When You Discover Your First Gray Hair
Gray hair is a fun and hot trend that has been worn on purpose by many women for a fresh new look and even by many celebrities like Rihanna, Dascha Polanco, and Amandla Stenberg. More and more older women continue to embrace their gray hair as a badge of dignity and experience.

But can we talk about me for a minute?

Roller Set | Perm Rod Set On Dry And Stretched Natural Hair

Perm Rod Set On Dry And Stretched Natural Hair

My natural hair is not the same as your natural hair, quite frankly not all naturalistas have thick, voluminous hair! Some of us have fine, less dense hair that causes us to look for helpful information to keep our hair moisturized, supple, and retaining length.
Truth moment: I do get jealous of those with thick, voluminous hair while my fine and wispy hair lays flat against my scalp.

So here I am trying to think of some new styling options to get some awesome volume and then it came to me: Do a perm rod set on dry/stretched hair!

Makes sense! Let's try it out:
