I transitioned for 7 months after deciding to stop relaxing my hair in February 2010. I transitioned for awhile because I wanted to allow my natural hair to sprout out as well as give myself time to research natural hair care. I did not feel comfortable just shaving all of my hair off and not knowing how to take care of it. Although I was shocked after my BC, I loved it and embraced my curls immediately. My boyfriend, sister and sister’s boyfriend came to witness the experience and loved it as well. I told my parents about my transformation, but since they live in GA, they still haven’t seen me in person yet. To be honest, I really did not have a main routine with my hair, my hair is weird. I would just wet it, put some gel on it and throw it in a bun and was literally good to go. Other times I would wash and condition it myself and my protective style was the two strand twists. I used CURLS clarifying shampoo, and Suave coconut conditioner and I put honey in it. To keep my hair moisturized I would use Cantu Shea Butter leave in conditioner. Right now being 100 % natural, my hair loves Pantene Relaxed and Natural conditioner for women of color. Its creamy and thick and my curls react to it very well!
Thanks for the support!
