I decided to go natural when I was about 1 month post perm as well. I started off with weekly washing and deep conditioning. I used the products that I used while I was relaxed until I did more research on the products out there. What works for one person may not work for others. Then I chose a transitioning style that doesn't require heat and did that every week.
In the beginning my hair didn't always turn out the way that I wanted but now after 7 months I am able to style my hair with ease and I have even changed some of the products in my regimen to natural products.
Good luck with your journey
