Hello, I am in my 5th month of transitioning. I so bad want to color my hair. I don't plan on BCing till maybe December 2009. Will it be safe for me to dye my hair during transition? Any information will be greatly appreciated

    hmmm well i don't think it would be smart to add new chemicals to you're hair when transitioning especially because the reaxed hair really isn't in a strong state at the moment.

    Thanks for the advice...it does make sense. Since the main reason of transitioning is to maintain and get healthy hair. Do you know if there is a healthy dying (sp?) method or product for hair that I can use once I BC?

    When I first started transitioning I asked the same question. I was told that it probably isn't in my interest to use a permanent hair color, but semi permanent wouldn't be a big problem. I've put a rinse on my hair a few months now and I'll tell you my hair is perfectly fine and I'm 10 months into transition. Just make sure if you decide to do it you make sure you moisturize your hair well so that you can avoid breakage.

    Hello,

    I am in my 5th month and I had senegalese twists in but now that I have taken them out...I have been doing Bantu Knots. Fairly easy to do and easy to manage.
