How To Master Transition Natural Hair
On the off chance that you’ve as of late chose to make the move, at that point welcome on board this journey! Truly, you will get ocean sick…you may even need to prematurely end transport! Trust me, the waters can get rough…and numerous evenings you may not see the shore! *Okay enough of this similitude as of now, this is haircare, not verse Tabitha. Focus.*
However, CONGRATULATIONS on your choice!! How about we walk this excursion together. I’ll share what I know dependent on my experience and we can bob thoughts off one another.
1. Keep Your Hair Moisturized
For those of us who’ve had relaxers, we know the torment of dealing with two surfaces – that is the thing that prompts us to get new relaxers in any case! The best way to endure this two-finished stage, without stowing away under a beanie or head scarf for a half year (summer heat not yielding), is to saturate. Ensure that you spritz your hair day by day with some great quality weakened leave-in conditioner or a blend of water, aloe vera juice, rose water and conditioner. Remember to profound condition your hair once every week.
2. Pick Your Products Wisely But Don’t Get Obsessed!
I’ve come to discover that items don’t develop your hair, TLC does. At the point when I initially went natural, I utilized the Keracare Line for everything (Shampoo, Conditioner, Deep Conditioner…EVERYTHING!). By and large, I would exhort against an excessive amount of item use. I would profound condition with a blend of 2 tblspns mayo, 2 tblspns olive oil, 1/4 cup aloevera juice and 1/2 cup great quality conditioner (eg. Pantene, ORS) when seven days.
Keep in mind: Hair items DO NOT develop your hair, great upkeep rehearses do!!
3. Focus On Your Line Of Demarcation!
The line of division alludes forthright between our natural hair and our casual hair. For those of us with 4C hair, (see hair composing outline beneath) our hair is especially inclined to breakage while transitioning on the grounds that our casual hair is the direct inverse of our casual hair.
On the off chance that you choose to progress for quite a while, it is particularly pivotal that you saturate the line of division, or, in all likelihood you will wind up with an opening in the rear of your hair as I did, in light of the fact that all your casual hair is dropping out. Genuine Story.
4. Wear Protective Styles!
Defensive styles are hairstyles that shield our hair from harm brought about by the components (an excess of sun, downpour, day off) mechanical harm (a lot of brushing, heat, control). As a natural, defensive styles are the key to length maintenance and thickness. On the off chance that you are transitioning, I would energetically prescribe defensive styling as an approach to slip into natural haircare without going insane! Low control styles that favor the two surfaces, for example, mesh outs and wind outs are ideal. These will better veil the various surfaces, and furthermore guarantee that you don’t brush your hair ceaselessly.
This was my first plait out. (Around 2011). It didn’t turn out impeccably, yet that is a piece of the pleasant right? We’re figuring out how to deal with our own hair, so there will undoubtedly be difficult situations! (Alright, that was the last reference to the similitude, I guarantee!)
You may even figure out how to interlace your own hair, as I did.
I even yarned locs. I figured out how to do them from BlackOnyx77. Don’t hesitate to allude to instructional exercises by different YouTubers too.
5. Have Realistic Expectations And Be Patient!!
Women, on the off chance that you resemble me, at that point you might ideally want to arrive at your objectives short-term! I genuinely battle with tolerance! Moan!
Natural hair shows you loads of persistence however! See me, despite everything tending for my hair 4+ years after the fact. I could never have thought I would keep going this long with natural hair. Trust me, with time, it will all result!
