Products for Transitioning Hair

hippiedollhippiedoll Posts: 398Registered Users
I seen in other threads for people who are already natural talk about products they use; however, I'm wonder what type of products do you guys use to help make your transition to natural hair a little easier. Please include shampoos, conditioners, leave-ins, and styling aids, and what you use in your scalp.

Here's my list:
1. Shampoo: Organix Coconut sulfate free shampoo, Alter Ego Garlic shampoo, and MoroccanOil Moisture Repair Shampoo.

2. Conditioner: Raw eggs/banana/honey mix, MoroccanOil Hydrating hair mask and Alter Ego Garlic conditioner (I'm looking for a more moisturizing conditioner that softens my natural hair coming in)

3. Leave-ins: Kinky Curly Knot Today and Karen's Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia KBB for short (I apply on wet and dry hair)

4. Styling Aids: KBB Sweet Ambrosia, KBB heavenly jojoba oil, Curls Cremé Brûlée (I use small amounts of this it tends to leave white residue in the hair), MoroccanOil (It contains silicone but it is lightweight, adda shine, and reduces frizz in my hair) and Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Style milk and the hair smoothie.

5. Scalp: KBB Butter Love and KBB Creamylicous

    You won't truly know your hair type until you cut off your relaxed ends.

    But the hair typing system is pretty much useless when it comes to hair care.

    I remember what my hair texture was like. I had my first relaxer as a freshman in High School (14 years old) I'm 21 now. My hair type I would say is a mix of 3c/4a curls. I mostly have medium ringlets of curls and tighter curls around my hairline and a the nape.

    Most people I've spoken to continue to use the products that they've been using befor the tried to transition because natural products may not react the same way to permed hair.

    I always felt like the silicones protected my hair when I was transitioning, LOL. I didn't start with natural products for curly hair until I was actually natural completely.

    I only use silicones when my hair is straight and when I'm blow drying my hair. When my hair is in a air dried or curly style I use natural products
