How to care for transitioning hair?
I've had relaxer since I was about 9 or 10 and I'm 16 now. My hair is at my collar bones and I want long hair. My hair used to be really unhealthy but I've moisturized A LOT and it's improved so much. I want to grow out my natural hair but I'm not sure what steps to take. I'm mixed white and black and my sister and I are the only ones with similar hair type in our family. I feel like once my hair is grown out natural, I wouldn't know how to care for it. (Btw. I have about 1.5 inch of natural growth but I have no idea what my hair type is)
well it does help to know what your hair type is but every curly girl should follow these generic steps when it comes to taking care of their hair : . Drink a lot of water . Your hair needs water to grow .if you want your hair to grow then stay away from heat for some months . Taking biotin helps to strengthen your hair and helps it grow faster . Never skip out on deep conditioning . Deep condition once every week or 2 weeks .. If you want your hair strands stronger , then use a protein treatment . ( Aphogee has a very good one ) but after the protein treatment use a deep conditioner because protein can dry your hair out .try only buying products that are specifically for curly hair . .if you put anything on your head , make sure it is made of 100% silk . Anything else can make your hair break off. Sleeping on a silk pillow case , wrapping your hair in a silk wrap and wearing a silk bonnet on your head is all good for curly hair * make sure your hair is moisturized , dry hair is never good* love your hair and it will live you back
