7 Additional Things You Need to Know about Your Hair when Preparing to Transition

hair follicle4. Hair anatomy

Understanding the anatomy of your hair will help you to understand why it had been very difficult for your hair to grow past a certain length, why it was thinning out and constantly breaking.

It will also help you to understand the strength and weaknesses of your kinky curly hair. You’d also find out why the cuticle is always the main topic of discussion when discussing moisturizing and sealing the hair.

5. Products needed

It’s easy to become a product junkie when first starting out. But did you know that the only key products that your hair needs to stay healthy is a good bottle of shampoo, conditioner and your favorite bottle of oil?

Anything else outside of these 3 key products would be “nice to have”.

6. Hair type


The characteristics of your hair will determine how your hair reacts to products and manipulation. It can also determine how easy or challenging it would be for you to retain length.

Every head of hair will differ in coil pattern, color, thickness, porosity, and density. Put all of these 5 characteristics together, then you’d understand why understanding Black hair can get complex and why you’ll need to be very patient with your hair.

7. How to build a regimen

After you’ve researched the 6 topics above, you’ll need to organize everything together in a logical manner so that you can actually take action.

When building your regimen, you would need to know your hair type, your growth rate and how to select products that will enhance your hair’s natural characteristics.

You can then organize how and when to use different hair products on your hair to help maximize growth and improve the look and feel of your hair. Building a regimen helps to keep your hair routine organized, structured and stress free.

Transitioning does not have to be difficult, you just have to be prepared and these 7 tips should help you right along nicely. What else can you add to this list? Please leave your comment below.
