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.

2nd week into My Transition

This is the week I decided to use Ayurvedic Powders to help with growth and over all health of my hair. I mix 1 tsp of Brahmi, Shikakai and 2 tsp of Alma Powder. 1 cup of Hot Water and 1 cup of Cold Water.. I oil my hair the night b4 with Vatika Frosting or Coconut Oil and massage my scalp. I get in the shower and rinse out of the oils then I pour the mix over my hair and then rinse. I use a conditioner wash with Tresseme and Hair One this helps with my detangling process. The last conditioner wash I pour oil over my hair and let it sit in my hair for 10 min. I then do my steam treatment with ORS Replenishing Pak or any conditioner I have on hand. This particular time I did a braid out. I used my shea mix and Aveeno Leave in my hair stayed moisturized and not dry..

Throughout the week what I do is spray my NG with a leave in and moisturized my hair before bed.

3 months Post Relaxer My 1st week of Transitioning

This is week I decided to transition. I was doing a steam treatment that particular and I noticed how soft and easy it was to comb thru my NG.. I was thinking maybe I can transition with the help of my steamer. I shampoo with JCS Shampoo and DC with ORS replenishing conditioner for about 15 minutes.. At the time I didn't have a regular steamer I did a steam treatment with a facial steamer and my hair turned out great. Learning as the weeks go by I'm trying different products.. I am trying to stick with all natural products.

Thinning Edges this is what helped me

This Recipe help get my edges back on track.. A couple of other ladies on other hair boards have tried this and got great results. Everybody growth time varies. I didn't start to see any growth for about 1-2 months. Thanks to Claudie she was kindly enough to share this recipe.

3 oz of Castor Oil
1 oz of Vitamin E
15 drops of Rosemary
10 Drops of Tea Tree
10 Drops of Cayenne Tincture

I would use every other day and masage into my scalp and on the days I wasn't using this mixture I would use just plain ole castor oil.

If you are pregnant don't use RoseMary or Have high blood pressure...
