Hi! My name is Danielle and I have just begun transistioning a month ago. When I was 9, I got my hair relaxed TWICE! Big mistake! 👎 And even worse, my hair grows EXTREMELY SLOW! I've been using oils, deep conditioners, leave-in conditioners, NO HEAT, and NOTHING is working. So I just wanted to share my hair transitioning journey with you all!
Have a great day,

    Hello Danielle!

    I'm glad that you made the decision to transition. I definitely do wish you well towards going natural. When one first begins transitioning, it is very easy to find ones self becoming overwhelmed. As, there are alot of products on the market to choose from, but you actually don't need a whole lot of products to maintain hair that is transitioning or even that is natural. Also, while transitioning you can choose to wear your hair out ( in wash n go styles, straight styles, buns, ponytails, rollersets, rodsets, strawsets, bantu knots/bantu knotouts, braids/braidouts, or twists/twistouts) or in protective styles (such as wigs or weaves/extensions).

    The main products that you really need in your regimen is a sulfate free shampoo or cleansing conditioner, strengthening conditioner, leave in (optional-use as needed per your own individual hair needs), and a styler (whether it be cream or gel based). Some individuals like to do pre-poo treatments, before they cleanse their hair, which is certainly beneficial for one's hair too. Good oils to use for pre-pooing with are olive oil, coconut oil, and JBCO. It is always good to use an oil that is 100% pure.

    Good luck to you! :mrgreen:
