Texture Shot

Whoop Whoop Whoop.... I'm starting to see texture when I style my hair. It's always great motivation when you can see your progress. I highly recommend taking photos of your hair during your transition to use as a source of motivation when the going gets tough. I'm currently so excited to see what my curl pattern is going to be like when I'm completely natural... between me and you and the world wide web I cut a lock of hair in the middle because suspense was killing me :P

7 months post relaxer

I'm officially 7 months post *dances*, finally past the honeymoon stages. Here are 7 things Ive learnt so far, that will help you on your journey to natural.

1. Detangle your hair!- The main culprit for my tangles is shed hair! Tangled hair is nightmare, I advise you to finger detangle your hair in sections at least 4 times a week.

2. Treat your two textures differently- your natural hair will need more moisture than your relaxed hair. Overmoisturising your relaxed hair and undermoisturising your natural hair will only lead to breakage.

3. Hair Accessories will solve a bad hair day! Scarves have been my favourite so far, they provide a great distraction when my hair is looking catastrophic.

4. Protective styling is your friend.

5. Get a good Oil. My two favourites are Jamaican Black Castor Oil and Peppermint Oil. They are multipurpose. I add them to my conditioner, oil my scalp and seal with them.

6. Stop counting the time and time will fly.

7. Enjoy the transitioning phase.
