    Thumbs up

    Well, I am in the transitioning stage. I decided about three weeks ago that I was going to lay off of the crack and get my hair on track (LOL; pretty catchy, huh??) Anyway, whenever I wash my hair, it turns into this poof ball. If you spray it white, it'll be a giant cotton ball. Even when it's down, I have to put gel on it, which leaves flakes and dries my hair out which I don't like. I'm trying not to use products that have any drying agents in them (like alcohol). Also, I seldom use blowdryers unless I ABSOLUTELY have to, and I don't use hot curls or pressing combs (well, I take that back, I use pressing combs every once in a blue moon).

    Does anyome have any suggestions as to how I can maintain my hair in this stage?? How can I stop the frizz?? Will I have to get my edges cut or anything link that?? Any suggestions are welcomed, no matter how crazy or off the wall they may seem.

    I would use the Elasta QP gel (for lack of a better word) when I wanted/want my hair to lay down. It does not flake, washes out very easily, and did not dry out my hair. To stop the frizzness I would tie my hair down for about 5-15 minutes after styling (normally in the morning or on my way out somewhere). This really helped to control how frizzy my hair got.
    If I say napptural and you say natural, we're talking about the same thing-differently. But if I say natural and you say re.laxer, then one of us is f*ckin wrong.

    How often are you deep conditioning and what do you use. Since I&#39;ve been in transition I try not to manipulate my hair as much as I did before. i choose style that I manipulate into place (combing, twisting, braiding, setting)--but once it&#39;s in place i leave it alone until the next wash session. if I&#39;m in a twist out i may arrange it with my fingers or gather it up with a clip of push it back with a head band but that&#39;s it. I lose a lot less hair that way. i usually do a good conditioning session before I try to style my hair into the low manipulation style i just described.

    I notice that my hair looks frizzy when it needs conditioning. If it&#39;s dry I use a moisturizing deep conditioner. If it&#39;s not dry I do protein. Sometimes I do an oil treatment (amla oil) before the wash on damp hair. I may add a cheap conditioner as well and leave it in overnight or for 2 hours. it works wonders when my hair is dry.


    I don&#39;t have a problem with frizz. Now the nappy parts are nappy --but I&#39;m assuming you&#39;re not talking about that..... :P

    Nappy hair does this amazing thing called puff. It will stand up on it own and deman attention. To make it lay down you can use Elasta QP as one of the other posters mentioned, or a light hair moisterurizer.

    You can also try french/cornrowing your hair in the front and doing twists in the back. You do not have to cut your edges. This is the way our hair grows.
