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.
