Tips and products for transitioning 3c hair?

I started transitioning at the beginning of December and I can see my roots coming in natural! It's really exciting and I want to make sure I'm doing all I can for my hair. What are some tips and products I could use to help my hair transition? Also my hair is relaxed, what are some ways I could style my hair while it's transitioning (I'm not brave enough to do the big chop)?

Some tips are to make sure you keep your hair moisturized. Some products I used throughout my transition was a good deep conditioner (I used Pantene Truly Natural Deep Conditioner). Also using a good oil would help a lot (coconut oil, olive oil). Another tip is to make sure that you try to not use as much heat on your hair.Some hairstyles you can do is twist outs, braid outs, bantu knots, buns and other protective styles like box braids, sew ins, Senegalese twists. Throughout my transition I mainly wore buns and bantu knots. Occasionally I had braids and Senegalese twists.
