“I have introduced my mom to your site and she is planning on transitioning after many labouring years of processing her hair. Keep up the good work!”


Just came across your site and I love it… and girl you know your stuff!


I was seeking guidance with my hair transition. I wanted to know why I wasn’t seeing growth, why I had knots if I was doing the right thing for my hair? There is a lot of information but you don’t know which one pertains to you. During our sessions, Mónica analysed my hair routine, products and practices came up with a hair regimen that gave me direction. I saw immediate results. My hair was nourished, the knots dropped significantly and I had fewer knots and I feel more confident about what I’m doing.

Thanks, Mónica. I don’t know what more you could have. You went above and beyond…


When I found Monica and Curly Hair Lounge I was well into a hair routine that I think was working for me. However, it was just was just information put together from faceless people on the net. I was having issues with curl definition and keeping my hair moisturised. I also wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing anything.

In three sessions I learned a lot about my hair, products and my hair routine. Now my hair is healthy, huge and moisturised. Mónica is very knowledgeable about the natural hair experience and what works and does not.


OMG, Mónica, I really learned a lot by reading this post. You are a lifesaver for s person like me, who’s only been natural for 2 months now… Thank you, and please keep the information coming, because you definitely got my full attention!
