My husband and I are trying for a baby. I am 5 months into my 3 year transition goal and I was wondering how a pregnancy could affect the process? Does anyone have any experience with this?
Celebrity stylist and SheaMoisture brand ambassador Diane C. Bailey is taking over Curly Q&A and here’s her response: “A lot of women choose not to relax their hair during pregnancy. It's almost like they're in a temporary state of transition. To my knowledge and experience, here are a few things to expect during your transition during pregnancy:
- The hair will appear much fuller as shedding is reduced during pregnancy.
- Some women experience growth spurts where their hair grows above average length.
- As you progress in your pregnancy, you may not want to spend much time with your hair. That's when I suggest trying protective styling.
- In some cases some women experience a slight change in their curl pattern. That's all hormonal and usually goes back to its original state after birth.
Are you transitioning during your pregnancy?
