Patience is the Key When Transitioning

Whether you are a short term transitioner or a long term transitioner the key is to have patience either way you decide to transition. Short term transitioner you have to have the patience with your new cut and long term the patience you just get thru this transition without giving up.

Review on Giovanni Smooth As Silk Shampoo & Conditioner

I finally got on the Giovanni bandwagon and I must say I am in love with their products. There smooth as silk shampoo and Conditioner will now be one of my staples. I 1st pre-poo with Natures Gate Aloe Vera Conditioner mixed with a little Castor Oil. Then I shampooed with Giovanni Smooth As Silk Shampoo. I did a Castor Oil Rinse in between and the castor oil was too thick so I washed again with Giovanni. I then DC with the Smooth As Silk Conditioner. Let me tell you the shampoo left my hair ok but I know that was because of the no sulfates but when I used that conditioner my hair felt just like silk and butta. I then used Aphogee 2 minute and again the butta and silk feeling came back. I am not sure if it was just the Giovanni by its self of if it was me using the castor oil rinse help also. The castor oil rinse is suppose to make your hair soft. I used the Giovanni Direct leave in along with my Salon Exclusives gold Sheen conditioner ( a dab of this) sprayed a little Green tea Aphogee. I then rollerset my hair using Bio-Infusion foam wrap (trying to get rid of the last bit I had) with some Sallys generic Paul Mitchell serum and I use the Giovanni Setting lotion on just the front of my hair just to see how it worked and I love that also.

The Castor Oil rinse was 1/4 castor oil and 1/4 water but the castor oil was too thick so next time I will use maybe 1/4 cup Castor Oil and 1/2 cup or water or find a Castor Oil that is not too thick

  1. Your hair is gorgeous! I am also a long term transitioner that hopes to achieve length with my new curly hair. I also have a blog at I would like to try this roller set using Giovanni products as well, but what do you recommend besides bio-infusion foam wrap for roller setting? Is there a reason you want to get rid of it?
