Moisturize Your Hair
Transitioning hair needs moisture. Natural hair that is curly has a harder time retaining moisture. Natural oils have a harder time traveling down the hair shaft of curly tresses.
You can use natural hair care products that are rich in nutrients that deeply penetrate the hair shaft to make hair softer and more manageable.
Moisturize daily. This is a must to maintain healthy hair that grows.
Be Patient With Your Hair
It takes a few months for you to transition and you must be patient with your hair during this process.
Cutting your hair too early may be a shock to you. Curly hair appears shorter due to shrinkage after it's dry. Be mindful of this when checking the length before doing the " big chop ".
While you're transitioning, this would be a good time to see what types of products, styles and methods work best for you hair.
Take your time and start a journal or diary to chart your progress. This will help you to see how far you've come. It also gives you a little inspiration along the way.
