When products are being applied daily to the natural hair there is a high risk of product build-up on the scalp and natural hair shaft. The products that we use to moisturize, condition and style create these build-ups which later leave our hair looking dull, feeling weighed down and make it even harder to style.
This also prevents products from penetrating the hair cuticles and cause dryness which leads to hair breakage from product build-up.Read more
In a world where people are so obsessed with the way they look, where kids spend more time contouring than enjoying being young, it’s a huge surprise to think of how much we don’t look after ourselves. Take hair for example – we curl it, straighten it, relax it, bleach it, and get annoyed when it won’t do what we want it to do. Caring for your hair will enable you to do what you want to without it snapping, splitting and shedding. Read more

I recently went from transitioning to relaxed after I transitioned for 2-3 years, now that I have my hair relaxed I am considering to start my transitioning journey back natural. I miss having my hair in a high puff, twist out etc. even though I enjoy playing around with my relaxed hair but not as much how I love the versatility of my natural hair.
Why did I start my Transitioning Journey
My main reason for considering to start transitioning is that I am not pleased with the way my hair is done when it is being relaxed and I experience a good amount of breakage and less hair growth.
I do have to style my hair on a regular basis, so I would buy several different styles of ponytails, wigs to pin onto my hair when I put it in one. I really do miss my high puffs and I wish to achieve it someday.
Twist out hairstyle
The last time I relaxed my hair was on the 6th of April and normally my hair would take about 6 weeks before I have a good amount of new growth, so I would say my transitioning journey started around the 9th of May. I am currently 13 weeks into my transitioning journey and so far I have only done one protective style. The first time that I transitioned my hair I had worn protective styles such as weave and braids but this time around I am giving my hair a break from weave and braids and wearing my regular ponytails and twist outs until I find someone that can style my hair as I desire.
Did you do the big chop? How long did it take for your hair to transition fully? What made you wanted to go back natural?
