How To Speed Up Growth With An All-Natural Transition Kit

natural hair

What can I say? I am a nutcase when it comes to using things in my hair that are truly all-natural. I personally can’t accept certain ingredients being placed into my hair, like synthetic vitamins (like vitamin E aka Tocopherol), emulsifiers (made with chemicals like polysorbates) and preservatives that are also made with chemically-made ingredients (used in all water-based leave-ins).

During my seven years of being natural, I never heard of a transition kit or thought to use one. However, I grew my hair from bra strap to tailbone length anyway.

However, if I was to relax my hair and do it all over again, I would do so with the help of a transition kit. I would, of course, use my very own transition kit made with all-natural ingredients (meaning grown straight from the earth…not someone’s lab).

But not everyone is as picky as I am. But for those who are and for those who like to do it themselves, here are ideas for putting together your own all-natural transition kit.

Cleansing and conditioning your hair with nature’s herbs

The first step to an all natural transition kit is to have a cleansing shampoo that isn’t laced with parabens and sulfates. This is easy when you’re using mother nature’s ingredients.


They say that these ingredients strip your hair of its natural oils, which it does. My go-to cleanser right now is also a conditioner, which is why I love it so much. It actually promotes sebum production — your hair’s natural oils.

The ingredients I speak of are my favorite to talk about — shikakai, amla, aritha, brahmi and bhringraj. This combination of herbs give you a super conditioning shampoo that helps to detangle, moisturize, cleanse, grow, thicken and darken your hair naturally.

So goodbye flaky scalp, hair thinning and premature graying. And if you have excess shedding or even balding, this will help with that as well.

The best way to use this combination is as a paste. Anyone who has done a face mask or hair mask will find this simple.

Another option would be to use the herbal powders as a liquid, which can be done by adding it with water and allowing it to sit over night, then straining it the next day.

Some also cook it like a tea and strain it, then use the tea as the shampoo. Whatever works best for you. You can find examples of how to use this mixture on YouTube — it’s quite popular!
