Hey! I’m African American and am starting to go natural with my hair and instead of having the big chop, I’m going to let it slowly transition. What are some good products to use on transitioning hair and hairstyles to keep hair protected? Anyone is free to answer this question=)

I am doing the same. I’m currently wearing a sew-in. You can also try lace front wigs. Both styles will allow for an easy transition since your hair is braided for both.

Hey. I have an easy tip. My hair has natural tight curls and I’ve gotten tired of going to the hairdresser. Anyway…..I wash my hair…dry it with a towel, so it’s damp, not soaking wet….put in leave-in conditioner or regular conditioner…..braid my hair in about 1/2 inch thick braids/or whatever consistency I want my hair to be……let it dry for about half hour to an hour….then take he braids out…..Sometimes I put gel or hairspray when braiding. Or… (if you havent washed it) you can dampen your hair and then follow the steps.

It only takes a few minutes to do and i usually do this when my hair is dry, before I start getting ready for the day. This way, by the time i get ready to leave, my hair will be dry. You can style it which ever way from there.
