Question with 6 notes

bluer0sess said: Ok so I'm 15, and I wanna transition. Do you have to big chop when you're transitioning? Because in YouTube, there were some girls and they would transition for like 2 years, then big chop.. And I'm confused lol

You can do both methods, one is shorter- big chop & the other is long time consuming- transitioning which consists of cutting off your relaxed hair little at a time while using protective styles like box braids, twists, crochet braids, weaves & then trim off a little as natural hair regrows in.

It’s basically all leading to the big chop in the end, but if your not ready to cut off all your hair at once, you transition slowly & still get to keep your hair.
But taking care of it & maintaining it, is harder than dealing with a big chop. You have to take care of two different hair styles, risk breakage which is inevitable , so I can say dealing with shedding as well as trying to monitor your new growth.
& that’s why most transitioning girls do protective styles to give there hair a break.

Hope I explained it well & lessened your confusion :-)

Question

theblacklittlemermaid said: Hey great blog btw! I have a question.. When do you think is an appropriate time to start with protective styles.. I've bc in February, so 5 months ago;. But I'm not sure if I should already start doing that.. My hair is long enough to do braids, but is it really necessary. I moisturize day and night with the loc technique :)

Nope it’s not necessary right now. You seem to be on the right track my dear,just enjoy your TWA stage ( teeny weenie afro) & just do as you please. As long as you are comfy with your style, no need for protective styles.
Protective styles are great especially when you want to give your hair a break from over styling,manipulation,harsh weather, lifestyles like going on a vacation & planning to swim or party all the time & over styling among other things.

So you are fine right now, but as it gets longer then yeah they will become necessary then maybe between 6-9 months time when hair is a little longer & states requiring daily care, then a break will be a great idea.
Have a great hair journey & thanks

Question with 1 note

j-y-l-a-s said: I used a just for me natural hair shampoo & conditioner. (It says for natural hair & its for kids its not a perm) my hair fell out sooooo bad from it. The naked eye can't tell. I wanted some tips on keeping the rest of my hair healthy.

I’m so sorry that this product ruined your hair I have usually had great reviews about it since it’s made for kids but there’s always a bad bunch that’s made differently from the rest & maybe that was one of them.

I don’t know why it shed your hair but after reading the ingredients, I also discovered that it contains a lot of bad chemicals for every natural product so it’s not balanced out that great & if you have really thickish hair like most black girls,you may notice the side effects ( since it’s a kids shampoo) but for softer soft hair, you may definitely see the damage. Does that make sense.

First thing you do is investigate to try & salve the damage, but if hair is falling out,you can’t stop it, it’s a sign of severe damage you just have to start the treating process.
1) Start by getting a cholesterol treatment pack from Walmart in the ethnic aisle, read the package & follow directions. This will help strengthen the hair up.
2) when brushing,do it with a a big toothed comb & a leave in conditioner like manes strengthening spray ( don’t brush when hair is damp not wet).
3)try strengthening shampoo like mane n tail or anti snap redken shampoo & co -wash between shampoos.
4) for products try hawaiian silky 14 in one to help fix the problem, also Wen shampoo by Chaz Dean is another great product but a little pricey.
5)And lastly get a trim since hair seems damaged, if shedding doesn’t stop, I hate to give you bad news but you may need to cut it off.
So maybe after trying to repair, you can also think of putting it in a protective style like Marley twist until the shedding is at least under control.
But if shedding doesn’t stop, you will need to trim off every month & let the new growth in as you would when transitioning to natural.

Sorry about your hair & I’m sorry, next time read the products. & if they are not sulfate, alcohol or contain a lot of mineral oils & words you don’t understand or aren’t explained in brackets , put back on shelf:-)

Question with 8 notes

hareehstyles said: I recently bought Novex Bamboo treatment and I wanted to know what you think about thi company or particular product because I've heard great things but it also contains Keratin in it and I just wanted to know would that change my natural hair in anyway? Thank you in advance for answering! xxx

Omg I have been meaning to buy this product after I lost my old one in the move.Thanks so much for reminding me, God bless you. I can’t praise this product enough, in fact I recommend this product to everyone. I have never heard of any problems with this product or seen any bad review about it, except for the price which isn’t that bad either as the product is worth it & even then,you still get more for your buck.

It will make your hair so strong you will notice significant shedding, it will Moisturize your hair that it will never go thirsty but be warned, don’t use too much or you risk over doing it & do the opposite of what this amazing product can do. It made my hair so strong that I touched it all the time with little to no shedding except for a few dead hairs. It made my growth sprout.

But don’t expect that results will show up the next day, first it will the damage done over the years & then you will notice changes so be patient and enjoy your bamboo treatment. Thanks again:-) I look forward to your review someday.

Question

ccashxo said: How do u achieve the vixen sewin look w bangs ?

Hi I really have no idea. I don’t know anything about sew in or weaves. Except taking care of them & what hair to use. I have never seen a vixen sew in with bangs except maybe on the sides.
You will have to ask or talk to a weave stylist/professional. Search through youtube videos, a lot of weave experts on there.
Maybe one of the ladies here knows, if anyone knows how, please msg this young lady.
Thanks everyone:-)
