I have been relaxed for 9 years. Since I started getting relaxers, I would relax my hair every 4-6 months (2-3 times a year). I thought long and hard for a year before deciding to transition because I wanted to make sure I had enough information before I took the plunge.
My main reason for going natural is that my hair has gotten thinner over the years and I want my kinky healthy full hair back. First things first, I need a game plan so I am currently building a regimen and a list of products I will be using.
Two websites have been especially helpful and both have Youtube Channels as well: www.naptural85.com and www.napturallycurly.com
Where I am Today
I am almost 5 months post relaxer and I recently did a chop. I cut off about 10 inches of my hair. I am still getting used to the process of transitioning so I am no expert by any means.The products below have made the process much easier for me.
- Distilled Water
- Virgin Coconut Oil
- Vegetable Glycerin
- Raw Shea Butter
- Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner
- Almond Oil
- Virgin Olive Oil
- Biotin Supplement
