Transitioning to Natural Hair
When many permed aka relaxed individuals begin transitioning to natural hair, it can often times be a confusing and sometimes frustrating process because of the combination of straight and curly hair. The area where the two hair textures meet is known as the line of demarcation. It is this area where the hair is most vulnerable because of the difference in textures. It is the weakest point of the hair, so if you opt to not cut your hair, proper care and careful styling is essential.
Women wearing their hair relaxed and straight and then deciding to go the route of transitioning to natural hair can find that styling the hair is often a challenge as the curly hair texture meets the straight relaxed hair texture. Often times, many individuals try to hide the two different textures by either flat ironing the hair or wearing their hair in curls.
If you are transitioning to natural hair and want to maintain your hairs length, but want to hide the two hair textures, curling your hair (without a curling iron) is the best option. Using hot tools on the hair only damages the hair causing it to break, leading to a loss of length. You definitely don’t want this to happen. So, it’s especially important to be very careful when styling your hair during this phase of the transition process.
Moisture is one of your best friends during this time. It’s extremely important to focus on conditioning your hair often to hydrate and maintain the strength of your hair. Spritz your hair daily with water in order to add extra moisture to your hair. Remember, water is your hairs best friend. People often overlook the huge advantages that water can give to their hair. Daily hydration is essential in order to not only maintain length, but to also grow your hair.
One of the best options is using natural hair care products specifically designed for your transitioning process.If you’re transitioning to natural hair, one of the best transitioning kits on the market specifically made for individuals growing out of a relaxer to natural hair is the Curls Transitioning Diva Kit.
