Apprentice Wednesday – Transitioning from relaxed to natural hair
A few years ago I went through a stint where I kept my hair natural for 4 years. The reason I chose to go natural at the time was because I was pregnant and decided I would go relaxer free until I had stopped breastfeeding my first baby. I then became pregnant with my second child and so didn’t relax my hair until I had stopped breastfeeding him discount canada goose trillium parka femme store online . It was a personal decision where I also gave up other things like coffee. Unfortunately I did not have any hair care knowledge at the time so all I did was braid and wear weaves back to back for 4 years, cheap Freestyle Vest Canada Goose Women Brown . I hardly moisturised and washed my hair irregularly. I hardly deep conditioned my hair. The result was that my hair broke and my hairline was seriously damaged. After a few months I went to a hairdresser and asked her to cut off the relaxed ends so I was fully natural canada goose trillium parka femme store online . After 4 years of being natural I decided to relax my hair again and I have kept it relaxed since canada goose trillium parka femme store online sale .
Many readers of this blog are either in the process of going natural or are thinking about it. I thought I would dedicate a post to those who are relaxed and have decided to go natural as well as those who are in the process of going natural.
To begin with. I need to explain that relaxing is a chemical process that results in permanent changes to the hair structure. It cannot be washed out or reversed. The only way to get rid of relaxed hair is to cut it off.
There are two ways to go from relaxed to natural – a ‘big chop’ (also referred to as BC) or transitioning. A big chop is simply cutting off all the relaxed hair and remaining with only your natural hair. This can be quite a sudden change especially if your relaxed hair is long. Transitioning on the other hand is more gradual canada goose trillium parka femme store online . This post will focus on transitioning.
Like I said above. transitioning to natural hair is a gradual process authentic canada goose trillium parka femme store online . When transitioning you trim your hair regularly and gradually get rid of the relaxed ends until all your hair is natural canada goose trillium parka femme store online . This can take quite a bit of time depending on how much hair you trim and also how often you trim it canada goose trillium parka femme store online online shop . Some women even transition for 2 years.
When transitioning to natural hair there are some things to take note of canada goose in fort mcmurray for sale .
Care need to be taken when you have two hair textures i. e. natural hair as well as the relaxed ends. The line of demarcation where the natural hair meets the relaxed ends is quite fragile, discount free canada goose ringtones . This is why in some cases you do not cut your hair but over time you realise you have hardly any relaxed ends left canada goose chateau jacket black outlet store . It’s because they have broken off.
Be very gentle with the hair. Detangle from the ends towards the roots to prevent unnecessary breakage. Remember that the line of demarcation makes your hair very fragile. Always detangle with a wide tooth comb when your hair is wet and slippery with conditioner womens xxl canada goose jacket outlet store , cheap canada goose concepts .
Make sure your hair is adequately moisturised. Deep condition the hair regularly. once a week if possible canada goose hybridge lite' hooded jacket 2015 . If you choose to braid or weave the hair while transitioning. remember that your hair will need moisture even with these styles.
Use as little heat as possible. Try and resist the temptation to flat iron your hair to match the two textures.
You may find that you need to change your products and use products more suited to natural hair. Many women find that natural based products work best for natural hair. Also the focus becomes more on moisturising and softening the natural hair.
Once again moisture. moisture moisture.. Natural hair needs moisture.
Remember the idea is to trim the hair gradually until all the relaxed hair is cut off. You can trim the hair every few months or whatever suits you. Look after your hair to prevent unnecessary breakage.
