I have not permed my hair since Jan, I have been braiding to allow my hair grow.grow . How do I properly transition and when do I know when to chop off the permed part?how do I take care of my hair now before the chop?
For transitioning, I would recommend doing various styles like bantu knots, flexi rods, braid outs with a perm rods in at the end to maintain the curl. You should be shampooing you scalp and and conditioning and deep conditioning regularly. Low manipulation is key!! Big chopping is whenever you're ready to do it. Everyone is different and some people do it immediately or wait anywhere from a 5 months and beyond until they're ready to big chop.
