Even though I am not transitioning I love seeing information on transitioning and any tips someone might have because I remember how hard it was for me and how much I needed just anything to get me through the hard parts. The best person to learn about transitioning is from a transitioner herself and my girl from Journey To WaistLength is just that girl.
As many of you all know who follow her on YouTube she recently decided to transition and in her latest video she gave 5 of her best tips for transitioning hair. Well we will allow you to take a look at it below but before that we wanted to add 4 of our own tips as well so here goes:
1. Protective styles – You here this all the time but they really help your to get over the humps quickly and you just don’t have to worry about your hair that much while wearing one. This doesn’t mean totally ignore your hair or scalp, never that, but it makes things slightly easier.
2. Patience – The video will mention this and we cosign wholeheartedly because if you do not have patience you will give up, so use this period to develop that skill because you will need it even after you transition.
3. Treat your transitioning hair like it is already natural – Personally this was the probably the best advice I received while I transitioned because believe it or not there is a ‘relaxer state of mind’ and you kind of have to remove all of that and start fresh with how you approach your natural hair.
4. Get Your Core Products Now – Don’t be a product junkie, we joke about it all the time but really it is best to have your Holy Grail products set in stone so that if you happen to stray you know who your “day one’s ” are.
