Another suggestion for you, CurlySha, go to the websites such as Curlmart, saw one at Oyin handmade website and you can purchase sample sizes of their products, the entire collections costs about as much as what a full size bottle is. That way if the product doesn't work for you it isn't a total waste because you will have used it all up within 2-3 uses. Also go to walmart to see if they have sample size products there too, they usually have Pantene in sampe size bottles, I seen a lot of good reviews for that one also

@Josbella I got a huge bottle of Deep moisture Conditioner by Giovanni @ Marshalls!! it was only 14.99..once you see a size of the big bottle you will realize it is a great deal! but I also saw smaller bottles if price is an issue for 4.99 the smaller sizes are still a good size bottle... i found the direct leave in by giovanni @whole foods and i also saw it at Vitamin Shoppe. @ both places they sell Aubrey organics, kinky curly, giovanni and other stuff too! hope this helps.

hey guys i've been on curly nikki all day and i think i have decided to do the big chop in august. that will be 5 months after my last relaxer. of course i may change my mind before that time, but i think if i commit myself to a goal, i won't fall victim to wanting a relaxer before going back to school

Thanks Jadore04. This is going to truly be a journey for me. Prior to transitioning I often relied on the hairdresser to do my do (a roller wrap). I will have to get used to styling my own hair on a regular basis and being creative. One of the biggest problems I have encountered is trying to figure out which product works for me. There are so many options and my money doesn't stretch that long to try too many of them. I am however, glad I invested in Suave Humectant Conditioner, LustraSilk Shea Butter Cholestor and ORS replenishing pak for DC. I co-washed for the first time last week with the Suave and DC'd with ORS and a tiny bit of Lustrasilk (ran out of ORS) and my hair was so easy to comb through and manageable.

can anyone give me suggestions on a successful braid out. everytime i try to do one, it just comes out a hot mess. i do four braids (two in the front and two in the back) because I like the size of the waves when I do it that way, but they just never come out "wearable". i've tried on both wet and dry hair...

Yay! I'm officially 2 months post. Last relaxer was on April 8th. I am having trouble with braid outs as well. They work for me best on dry hair because it takes my hair forever to dry. If I wash my hair the day before, it is still wet the following day. Anyway, my problem with braid outs is that the hair that isn't braided is straight. I probably just need more braids...

I have that same problem(straight hair). I know it would come out better if it was cornrowed, but I can't cornrow my own hair. The only other solution I could think of would be smaller braids, but I like bigger waves. Hmmmm. I think I will try to do smaller braids next time though and see if the waves loosen up a little bit the second day I wear it.

@ Ebbz & Vanisia I used to have the same problem when I did bantu knot outs but i found a pretty good solution. After I wet my hair with my spray bottle concoction (water, conditioner, EVOO) I make the twists and then take a paper towel and kinda wring out my hair. it's hard to put in words but I wring the twists around my fingers and use the towel to catch the excess water. My hair is 95% dry in the morning Smile

Hope i made sense!

I'm giving my hair a break this week but when I get home this weekend I will try again. I'm going to do them earlier in the afternoon and hopefully they'll be dry by the time I take them out.

hi
Im 3 months post relaxer and have been basically doing research on various natural products in preparation of natural hair, and my planned BC in first week of august( after family reunion and all the traveling is done) . I havent developed a regime yet. But i have been using Vatika oil, and shea butter and doing DC with honey and evoo( leaves my hair so soft shiney and very manageable) and using satin scarf or pillow case after always using cotton scarf and wondering why my hair was always so dry in morning LOL. Learning , learning ,learning its what you do in the transition stage .....trial and error. Well im ready......i think LOL

It is most definitely a learning experience! I still have no idea what my hair loves/likes. I'm still trying to get the hang of it all.

Hi Everyone~
I am also a new transitioner-April 22,2010 was my last relaxer. I have been the most nervous and anxious than ever before just trying to remember what my natural hair was like. I was 10 years old when I got my first relaxer. I decided to go natural due to the my scalp issues (P and S) Psoriasis and Seborrheic Dermatitis. I am convinced it showed up in my life due to the many years of relaxers and well STRESS too. The combo is not good. Since my transition began the itching and dandruff has gotten a lot better...NOT gone but much improved.

@JossBella: I got the same reaction when I went to get my last relaxer in April 10'. My hairdresser ( who I have been seeing for 3 years) was like "Why!?!" it sounded like an accusation. Even after I explained about my scalp again and just being tired of the chemical burns that seem to come on even faster because of my scalp issues, she really was not hearing me. I kept going and getting my hair done for the next 6 weeks and she wanted to try all of these different products to help my scalp and I agreed to let her. However, not such a good idea. That is when I decided I can't do it anymore. I did not reschedule an appointment but I felt too nervous or chicken to let her know I was not coming back. I will have to deal with it eventually...so stay strong, you can do this! Your reaction has given me the confidence to just brush off the reactions of others and hold my head high. Soon I will pick up the phone and let her know so thanks for sharing your story.

I'm 2 1/2 months post relaxer and i decided to transition about a week ago. i currently have box braids in dso i'm not sure what's going on with my new growth but i can't wait to get acquainted with it and start learning my texture as it grows out. i'll be trimming probably every 3 months or so aftert i take my braids out. i don't plan on never doing a BC but hey, i may change my mind sometime! but definitely not anytime soon.

@NaturaMeTricie, my hairdresser is supportive, but she does sort of 'push' for a relaxer. My reasons for going natural were the scalp issues, slavery (to salon visits), and my need to be myself. It's like regular (non-natural) beauticians don't understand that. They think that if your scalp improves or your hair gets stronger, it will be time to go back to relaxers. For me, I am relying on my beautician only for pressings and trims. Other than that, I do it myself. It will make you feel more empowered, and you won't have to deal with the grumblings from the beautician who has to "do something" with your hair.

Just my $0.02.

I've never really go to the hair salon so I've never really experienced what you ladies are talking about. I've always done my own hair or let my mom do it, but I would hate to have to experience those comments are have to constantly explain myself. Seems like it would be annoying.

Hi my transitioning sisters,

I was due for perm in May but, I kept putting it off. And then it hit me GO NATURAL! For my protective style I braided my hair in cornrows on Wed. But I'm not feeling it. So I'm taking them out. I'm thinking about geling my hair into a ponytail maybe a curly style. Hopefully, this way will grow my hair so I can BC in late july or Aug.

@ nnlathan Good luck! It takes a while before you can get used to the two textures. I used to struggle like crazy and my hair isn't even permed (texturized). Moisture is really important and so is sealing your ends...

Hi ladies,
My last perm was April 2 and I have already done the BC!!!! My hair was already short so it was a fairly easy transition. I still have a little perm left in the crown but I am rocking my TWA with confidence. I am almost at my 3 month mark. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] I am loving my curls and so is everyone else.
