    Enjoy the process and do your research. First time I transition I was pulling my hair out by the chunks! dont get discouraged and dont believe the hype. Not all natural hair is the same but all natural hair is beautiful.

    Lots of moisture and weekly deep conditioning with no heat really helped when i transitioned.

    Pre-poos like coconut oil were a fantastic help to me at the beginning.
    Shampoos without sulfates are a must (or if you're really up for it - co-washing).
    Deep condition your hair once a week.
    Try to stay away from combs and brushes. Just stick to finger-detangling. If you must comb, only do it when you have lots of conditioner in your hair.
    Stay away from heat!
    Try protective hairstyles like braids or twist outs.
    And most importantly: patience. You're going to have to re-learn a lot about your hair so just relax, go with the flow and enjoy the journey. The end result with be so worth it! :)
