    Smile Nappturality's YT for Transitioners

    I talk a little about Transitioning and such... and you should watch the video I have made on "hair typing" too.



    Don't be afraid to post questions in here if you have any for me.

    My last relaxer was almost 6 months ago. I had straightened my hair with a flat-iron twice over the first 2-3 months and then shampooed and wore a natural bun until it dried. On Easter weekend I shampooed, applied a leave-in conditioner and had 2-strand twist extentions put in. I used Nature's Blessing pomade on my scalp last week but I think I need a daily moisturizer or weekly conditioner. I had used Creme of Nature Leave-In but not since I've had the extensions. I also have Olive Oil at home, but what I use for cooking doesn't go in my hair...or does it.

    Newby in Transitioning.

    Lola it depends on your hair. I would prefer using jojoba oil over a standard vegetable oil on the hair. Too much oil can be detrimental. You have to try and see for yourself if veg oil works for you. The only oil I put directly on my scalp is jojoba.

    A question about braids....you mention a couple times that they shouldn't be left in too long. How long is too long? I had a (really cute!) twisted updo that I wore for a couple of weeks, and now I have individuals that I will have had for 3 weeks when I take them out this weekend. I'm thinking that's ok - what's your opinion?

    Wargoddess, too long is any longer than 3 - 4 weeks without taking them out and washing your hair. If they are put in too tightly and pulling on your hair then too long is 5 minutes.

    Sometimes dryness can be caused by simply not being hydrated enough. It is very simple and important that you keep your body hydrated. Make sure you are drinking enough water.

    The problem could also be caused by buildup. If you have been using a lot of products on your hair, they may have built up on your hair which prevents moisture from penetrating.

    Use a clarifying shampoo to strip the product off your hair, and follow up with a deep condish.

    Another thing to consider is your water. If you do not have a filter on your water, the minerals in the water build up on your hair just like products do. Shower filters are cheap, and available to buy just about everywhere. Get one! You will notice the difference right away.
