You could always do straw sets, curly rod sets, or roller sets at this stage if there is a drastic difference in the two textures. YOu could also get your hair braided. When I was transitioning my relaxed hair curled very easily so whatever I added it would dry up curly. I used leave in conditioners, setting lotion, and curl activator gels mainly.
