Converting back to natural is like taking on a new hobby; you have to learn everything from scratch, but here Loks Hair give you some tips to let your head start.
1. Be brave to chop hair. It is personal choice to cut off the hair because some may suit short hairstyles more than others and are able to style and manage the length better. And it not need to wait the hair to grow sufficiently but use clippers.
2. Keep it simple. Transitioning also means harvesting healthy growth and it helps to implement a simple hair care routine that will assist you on a daily basis. Moisturize your hair every day, and oil your scalp every other day to stimulate growth. Find a conditioner that works for your hair type and use a natural shampoo like the Stimulate and Cleanse to clear away build up.
3. Become a DIY specialist. Don’t rely too heavily on your stylist, but wash your hair and deep condition it weekly by yourself. To maintain healthy growth eliminate stress and stop unnecessary breakage by using a deep conditioner every time you wash.
4. Use premium hair care product. Choose effective products on transitioning hair. Natural hair loves natural ingredients. When your new growth gets longer what you will notice is a definite line of demarcation. That is the point where the natural hair ends and the old relaxed hair begins. To ensure a smooth transition and little hair stress, be sure to marinate strands with intense moisture and increase ‘slip’ in your strands to deal with the new growth and old relaxed hair gently. Avoid over combing and brushing too. And thinner hair grows when the hair is transitioning, Please be patient and treat this hair with care, once you gain a few more inches, this hair can be trimmed away.
Use heat with caution. If you have just started your journey and are not ready to rock your texture, do not use heat regularly as a way to straighten your new kinks, as this will lead to damage and defeats the purpose of going natural! Use heat sparingly with a heat protector. If your stylist suggests regular ‘blow-outs’ to manage roots, kindly decline, it will be worth it in a years’ time.
