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.

3 PC Combo that helps with my detangling Process while Transitioning

3 pc makes you think of food right.. lol  For me chicken comes to mind.. Chicken is not my secret combo for helping me thru my transitioning process.. The 3 steps for me are Pre-poo, Co-wash and DC with steam or heat.

My pre-poo I used any conditioner I have on hand.  Mixed with Hemp seed oil, Wheat Germ Oil and Sunflower Oil.  Depending if I need any protein I will add an egg to the pre-poo. Conditioners I've use is Yes to Cucumbers, Tresemme, Herbal Essence. The co-wash I don't use a lot to co-wash.  Its either my Yes to Carrots conditioner (love this stuff) or my Aussie Moist.. The DC sometimes I use Aussie Moist 3 min when I am short on time.  Other DC conditioners I use with steam is Shescentit Banana Burlee, HV StirNillah.  Any other DC I have on hand.  But my main thing I haven't switched up on is my co-wash conditioner.  I think Pre-pooing b4 you shampoo or co-wash has really cut down my tangles.  Also my Tangle Teezer that I mentioned in another post is a life saver for me

1 Year Post Relaxer Today

Well Ladies I made it to 1 year transitioning.  Haven't taken any pictures yet but the pictures you see below is for me at 10 months post.. I must say I have really enjoyed my transition.  I think my only problem was trying to find different styles.  I mostly stuck with my same boring style.. Hopefully by June I will decide if I will BC or not.

Product Review on Tangle Teezer

This device doesn't look like much but it really helped me to detangle my NG while transitioning.  I used the denman brush but I get more hair in my brush than I do the tangle teezer.. If you have very thick hair take smaller sections to detangle.  This is most def a keeper.. Cost $10 and worth every penny.  I plan to keep this on hand at all time.. If you haven't tried it you might want to thing about making this investment.
