Hi ladies! I'm new to this website. I'm 17 and I have been transitioning for 6 months. I am very glad for a site like this and I would love to have you girls' support on my tough journey. If you have any tips or help, feel free to respond, I have to learn my way around this site.

    Hello and congratulations on making it this far into your transition!!:thumbright: It is never easy trying to manage the two textures of the hair as well as trying to master finding a technique and products that work. I am actually starting a blog where I will be doing posts on how I take care of my hair and have been managing my transition for the past year. Feel free to check it out at cinsationalife.blogspot.com. Again, I am just starting but there will be plenty of posts to come. If you have any questions feel free to ask. We are all in this together:hello1:
    Current Products:

    Welcome and congratulations. Really, the only advice I have is making sure you wrap your hair up or have a good pillow case, keeping your hair THOROUGHLY MOISTURIZED!!!!!, take it easy on combing/brushing dry hair. Having two different textures in your hair is kinda difficult; just one teeny mistake and your hair will break off so badly, you won't know what to do (trust me, I know; I speak from first-hand experience)

    Hope you have an awesome natural hair journey!!! Lots of luck!!! :)

    I've been transitioning for 5 months now and I'm really loving it. What really works for me is I co wash evey three days and deep condition at least once a week. On top of that I use Moroccan oil with a leave in conditioner (sometimes I add Aloe gel). My hair loves it, it's so soft!!

    I'm also staying away from heat as I don't want to kill my tiny ringlets, they are sooo cute. So I rely on twist outs. Good luck!
