As Naturalistas one of the greatest joys is the versatility of our hair. Doing a perm rod set on natural hair produces the same results that we had in the past (for some of us) when we had relaxed hair. So who said you can’t do anything with natural hair? *In my Tamar voice* Lies! In fact, a lot of the styles we did when we had relaxed hair we can still do now…perm rod sets being one of them.
