Hey Beautiful people!!! In a few days, it will be 3 months since I ended my transition. To be honest, it feels like much longer... this is probably because so much has occurred within this time. I am loving the journey thus far. My hair has definitely got thicker and longer since I transition chopped... can you tell from the pictures? I have more hang time. For the first time ever I wore my hair in a braidout out of the house... yes, I said out of the house. *covers face* In my defence the weather in England has been either too wet or too humid and I have only just mastered my braidout technique. The transition from wearing my hair back to wearing my hair out takes a little getting used to.
Below I have shared some tips that have helped me on my natural hair journey.
1) Prepoo with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Honey - warm for a few second in the microwave and apply to damp hair. This is an ultimate lifesaver.
2) Wash day does not have to take all day - You can get the same result in a few hours. I've noticed that now and can now utilise the rest of my day.
3) Wash in twists- this reduces shrinkage, tangles, and ensures that product is evenly distributed through the hair. I individually unravel the twists to shampoo and condition and re-twist.
4) Trim Scraggly ends - healthy ends make a hairstyle look so much better... especially braidouts, as well as improving the overall health of your hair.
