As you embark on this new journey you will have lots of questions, and you will want to stop at some point and just give up. When you reach that point, don't give up - ask questions and become a product/protective style junkie. It's your destiny to become the last 2 (you'll know why later). Whether you just want to give your tresses a break or stop using that creamy crack altogether, you've made a good choice. There are so many chemicals and hidden ingredients that damage our hair without us even knowing. Products that are considered “natural” nowadays barely live up to that title.
So as you go through your transition journey follow these tips to make it more enjoyable.
Try the following hairstyles to blend your transitioning hair and perm’d ends:
1. Bantu Knot
2. Twist Out
3. Roller Sets
4. Braid Out
Brands like Shea Moisture, Kimble Beauty and Ms. Jessie’s will assist in achieving these styles. These brands are great for any texture/curl type. Use satin headscarves and bonnets for softer hair. Even try using satin pillowcases. Find these brands and others on our website under “Hair Care”.
Enjoy the journey and take lots of pictures! It will seem like the longest process of your life, but at least by tracking it you can see the small milestones you will get to.
Till next time, ladies!
