NATURAL HAIR TRANSITIONING PROBLEMS AND THEIR SOLUTION
Hey guys, today on beauty tips we would be looking at some of the things you would experiencing when you finally decide to go through with the transition process.
Transitioning to natural is simply letting go of the creamy crack (perm) and embrace the hair that naturally grows directly out of your head.
This whole process initially makes you have two different textures of hair before you go fully natural after a good amount of trim.
So when the transitioning and mix textures begin, you would probably encounter some things you probably do not encounter before.
Some of these things which occur during this stage that you need to get prepare would be highlighted below:
5 PROBLEMS TO EXPECT DURING TRANSITION AND THEIR SOLUTION
Constant Dryness is definitely one of the things that accompany your hair during the transition.
When your hair was all permed you would realize that it was probably not this dry. Anyways, you have to get used to your hair getting dry easily.
But more importantly, get used to trying to counter such dryness by keeping it moisturized as often as you can.
Of course, when your hair begins to get dry, hardness follows. Sooner or later it would most likely get fuller and harder making it difficult for a comb to pass-through.
Well, moisture would still play a great role here to keeping it soft. When it is properly moisturized, it then makes combing the hair a lot easier.
Though reducing the number of times you comb would be more beneficial to the hair. So, in order not to have to comb all the time, keeping it in a protective style will definitely go a long way.
You didn’t think because you chose to avoid the big chop you are going to escape the little small chops every now and then. Well you can’t so you definitely have to get prepared to expect breakage.
Remember you now have two textures on your head and having two extreme textures of hair at one time typically results in breakage. So, at some points or the other, your permed ends would begin to break more and more as the day goes by.
(Well that’s the main point of transitioning anyways, to get rid of the permed ends). However, to avoid this unhealthy breakage all the time, you can take out time to trim these ends yourself every month or whenever you please.
The irony sometimes is letting your hair go is even more difficult during transitioning sometimes. But you have to because the deal remains that if you don’t get regular trims your hair is definitely gonna break off at some point.
Yes, your hair is probably going to get easily tangle as you go about your transition process. Detangling it would probably also become a whole lot more work than you can remember.
But not to worry, the solution to an easy disentanglement is pretty simple. This simple solution involves detangling hair when wet. You could take your time to use your fingers before a comb.
Detangling when your hair is wet not only makes it easier but reduces breakage as well if done properly.
These adjustments have personally been a tough one for me though. I mean imagine going to the salon wanting to make a killer hairstyle but I’m told I can’t due to the texture of my hair or it won’t last etc.
It’s either it’s relaxed or natural, it can’t be indecisive or should I say a half-cast(lol). It’s like a pick a side something.
Yes, this period can be pretty disconsolate but you are going to get used to it eventually and sooner or later it would surely pass.
You just need to get more acquainted with more protective hairstyles that would be good for your hair texture during this period.
This is very important because due to the fragile state of your hair, it would be needing some low-level maintenance hairstyles. In the meantime, you definitely do not want to work it too much as this could lead to even more breakage.
