Ok transitioing for me has been hard for me cuz of these three reason
-my hair is always getting matted at the roots /new growth I donít why even though I put a lot of work detangling and it happen after I do a braidout then go to sleep.i recently found out that your not suppose to sleep with wet no duh lol but idk what the other reasons why my hair is getting matted like tha.if you see it its like dreading /knots dry this normal idk what to do anymore
-my hair is a bit past shoulders length and I have like 4 inches of new growth problem is w/e I put in my hair whether its oil or leave in.i cant nvr comb new growth I can comb it when its wet but not that much people keep telling me my hair is hard BUT when I touch it it feels soft and smooth.but they canít comb it when its dry cuz the comb gets there anything I can put to make it combable.
Breakage Ėhow to prevent less breakage cuz my hair breaks a WHOLE LOT
perhaps you are using products with protein in it? sometimes too much protein can make hair hard and begin to break. my hair was hard and dry but i stopped using products with protein as much and my hair has been doing well since.

with wet combing, make sure you are using a wide (very) tooth comb. i like the detangling comb by goody's. it is under 2 bucks at sally's. i don't know how far you are in your transition, but my hair experienced some breakage in the first 2-3 months. during this time, detangling was a problem and my hair begain breaking off at the line of demarcation.

i don't comb my hair dry. i always comb it wet and soaking with conditioner starting from the ends and going up to the roots last. sometimes, if your hair isn't detangling easily, you might try diluting some conditioner with water. that may help you with your detangling problems.

to mention i'm 16, if that helps.
