Hydrate and moisturize!

You have to hydrate internally and moisturize externally!

Drink 6-8 glasses of water and moisturize your skin and hair daily.
Our hair is an extension of us and should be pampered.

Transitioning back to your natural hair

Yes sisters, you can do it! And it doesn’t have to be painful! There are several methods to transitioning:

The Big chop
The easiest means in transitioning, though not always emotionally uplifting, is “The Big Chop,” also known as “just cut it all off!” In this process, all the relaxed hair is cut off leaving just pure virgin hair.

Braiding with hair extensions
Synthetic or human hair can be braided or twisted at the roots to blend hair textures. These hairstyles can last anywhere from 6 weeks to 2 months.
Braiding without hair extensions
Your hair can be braided or twisted without any extensions (providing hair is long enough). Hair can then be left straight or set on rollers to achieve a curly set. This method lasts between 2 to 4 weeks.

Roller sets, rod sets, and straw sets are used to blend hair textures and making it seamless and beautiful.
