    Okay I have recently decided to start wearing my hair natural. Straightned its about an inch above my shoulders. I just did two strand twists last night. Not too cute but okay. I read all the posts about stuff to use. I keep hearing about shea butter and QP Elasta Mango Butter and some Denman brush. What products do I need to maintain my hair on a regular basis? Whats the Denman brush for? Where do I get shea butter and jojoba oil? Oh and how do I find out what type my hair is? I keep seeing people call their hair 3b or L or something like that. Any tips you guys can give me I'd really appreciate. Thanx so much!! :thumbsup

    Whats the Denman brush for?

    Detangling

    Where do I get shea butter and jojoba oil?

    I found my shea butter at a flea market. I get jojoba oil from the health food store. But you can buy both products online also. There are a few websites listed on the homemade products board.

    Oh and how do I find out what type my hair is?
    You won't be able to tell what your hair type is until you cut off your straight ends. Don't get to caught up with hair typing though. Just do what works best for your hair.

    Any tips you guys can give me I'd really appreciate.
    My tip would be to just cut it off!

    Also, visit the transitioners board. There are several ladies there also transistioning from straight to natural hair.

    :doh Oops I didn't explain well. My hair is all natural. I've just been wearing braids for the last few years. So how do I find out my hair type? Thanks

    Hey, I'm a newbie too! Thus, I don't have a lot of tips to give. My best advice would be to keep your routine simple. When I first joined the board I wanted try every product I read about. But then I thought, if I use tons of products at one time, how will I know what really works for my hair? So right now I only use shea butter (which I bought really cheap from nappalonia!) and a homemade spritz for my scalp (made of jojoba oil, rosemary EO, and water). I also no-poo once a week and I deep condition once a week or every other week. Its been working for me, my hair feels much better now, than it did two months ago when I started wearing it natural. I hope this helps!

    I observe the axis on which I revolve.
    If I am dragged by a burden,
    I know where I go.
    For I am the moon, and the sun is my guide
