Do you rememeber the post on Instagram where I asked if you would like to know about my hair journey? well some people indicated interest in knowing and I am going to share. I must apologize for dropping this post a little too late; my sincere apologies *grinning*.
I have been transitioning for more than a year before I had my big chop recently, and I wrote a post on reasons why I was transitioning here. I got tired of transitioning and
trimming cutting my hair and I decided to get it done with, so I went for the big chop. Ooooh I felt bad after the scissors went through my hair , but here I am today enjoying every bit of the fro life.
Products I use.
While transitioning, I went to the nearest store close to my residence to buy natural hair products, and as a rich girl that I am, I just bought the basics after reading a lot and asking questions. I continued using this products after my big chop and got a little extra. There are below:
Pure honey: I forget to snap it
Tips you should know
- Always hydrate your hair. I learnt this when I got to the America and winter continually dried out my scalp.
- Get a spray bottle that will help with number 1. Remember water should be the highest percentage.
- Never comb your hair without wetting your hair. Combing it might even be impossible without wetting.
- Prepoo you hair before shampooing. It is a little ritual you do before washing your hair. This is when you apply a conditioning treatment to the hair prior to shampooing / washing so as to add moisture to the follicles.You either protein prepoo with egg, honey, milk etc or oil prepoo with oils; hot oil is preferable, they call it hot oil but it is rather warm.
- Keep your hair in as much as you can with a protective style. It helps your hair grow and reduce hair breakage.
- Eat well. Your hair is a reflection of what you eat.
- Drink as much water as you can it keeps your hair well hydrated and helps in the proper growth of your hair.
P.S:This was written based on my experience and hair type. My hair has three different textures: Soft Caribbean curly at the back, nappy in the middle and indecisive in front. I have a colour four hair which I guess its C I am not so sure.
