Exclamation I Had My Big Chop On July 1st 2012

I have a few questions about my natural hair journey
Its my third time me trying the natural proccess but i finally realized that my hair was much more healthier natural then relaxed. The last time i went natural was the longest time going with it before I lost it and relaxed it again. I grew it out for about 8 months. then my ex convinced me to perm it since it grew great lenghts. the dumbest miskake i have made. i regret it but I trying for it again. But back to the question. I really dont have a specific curl type. I remember as it grows out it changes to about three. One thing I do know is that it is extrememly thick. I have no clue what products to use to keep my hair moisturized. Every product I have tried my hair absorbs it in minutes and I havent even gotten that far yet. I really need somebodies advice about this. i dont wanna give up on my journey. I wanna stick to it.

Many of us have changed up out products as our needs change. Not to fret! The key right now is just moisture. Until your hair gets some length, your options are open. Just avoid the ingredients that may block moisture or are drying to your hair. I love the Shea Moisture line.

I really appreciate the advice and I will definitely keep this in mind. I will definitely try the shea butter. I been using my old products from before the big chop. Which dont seems to work well. I also visited my local beauty supply and they didnt have a big variety of products. Nor any good stuff for natural hair.....smh

Default Thanks for the heads up

I've been transitioning for about two weeks now and it actually never occured to me that when my natural hair grows out I'll need different products. Thanks guys!
