Isn’t it just so refreshing when you FINALLY achieve a hairstyle that you’ve been unable to do for… idk, ever?! I’ve done a few perm rod sets in the past year – last year shortly after my haircut and again over the summer – but I haven’t been able to get the voluminous and fluffy results that I wanted. In the first scenario, my hair was rolled on a spiral, leaving me with more of a roller set than a rod set, and in the second case, my rods were too small so my rod set was super defined.
When I decided to partner with Jamaican Mango and Lime Pure Naturals to try their new line of products, I knew I wanted to tackle the rod set again. This time, with a few tweaks, I think I finally found the secret sauce to a fluffy perm rod set!

Fluffy Rod Set Tutorial
There are 3 secrets to my fluffy rod set: 1. start on dry stretched hair, 2. use large rods, 3. use products that are super moisturizing. Check out how the combination of those three things worked below:
Pure Naturals is SUPER moisturizing, perfect for kinky, colored, and high-porosity hair. My hair retained moisture for over a week without adding any additional product. So they ain’t never lied when they said they provide 360 degrees of moisture.
However, the name Pure Naturals is slightly deceptive. Although it is free of parabens, sulfates, and mineral oil, it does have silicones as well as lots of other chemicals that were a pain in the behind to type out. I looked a few of them up on EWG, and some were preservatives and potentially naturally derived, but it’s nearly impossible to know for sure.
Now for a less than $10 price point, I think the line is better at moisture than some of it’s competitors like LottaBody and Creme of Nature, though they’re both better than Pure Naturals for styles with hold & definition. However, if you’re looking for a product that is truly natural, you should shell out a few more dollars and go with Camille Rose Naturals or the similarly priced Eden BodyWorks that you can find at Target.
I can see myself using the Pure Naturals Hair Lotion & Buttercreme to remoisturize super parched hair though!
