I big chopped one month after my last relaxer. I didn't want to transition because I wanted to combat the dry hair while my hair was closely shaved. As you know hair products vary from person-to-person but what I use (and always return to when I stray) is VO5 Champagne Silk to prepoo, Tresseme Naturals Jojoba and Coconut to cowash (rinse out thoroughly), Suave Naturals Coconut as a leave-in (had to learn exactly how much to add) and Eco Styler gel with Argan Oil as my leave in. I'm quite pleased. I cowash daily (mainly because my hair was smashed to my head in the mornings but is getting better as it gets longer).
