When it comes to hair and decisions, many can testify the constant need for change. For others, the big chop is not a favourable route to take when looking to transition from relaxed to natural hair. The factors may include the pace in which their hair grows or dreading to start from scratch amongst many other reasons.
There are many factors to consider when one makes the decision to take the transitioning route. Here are some that can help speed up the process:
What used to work before embarking on the journey to transitioning. Give your hair time to adjust to having two hair texture. Remember, you are transitioning from lighter hair to hair that requires time and patience.
- Trim ends
The key to transitioning is to keep trimming the ends. This helps support the new growth of natural hair. You will realize, as the thin ends wear out, the growth of the natural hair will be visible. You will experience some hair breakage but do not let that phase you because it is totally normal. Use the Anti-breakage combo to minimize hair loss.
- Keep hair moisturized
Moisture is important for natural hair. Before the transition, water was your worst enemy. Well, not anymore because to keep the hair moist, you must spritz water into your hair. Failing to moisturize your hair means hair-breakage. Spray your hair with water then use a Leave-In conditioner to lock in moisture.
- Find a protective style that won’t strain your hair
Stick to a hairstyle that works for you and become attached to it because it is one of the most important factors. Now is not really the time to be trying to work lots of different hairstyles because your hair is in a very delicate state.
Finally, transitioning takes sweat, determination, patience, consistency, and commitment. Duration varies from hair type, but it may take a year or longer to fully transition. So, do not expect to see immediate changes.
