Transitioning?

Do you have any questions about my transition?

I remember how frustrating it was to have very little info and resources during my transition. If I can help save anybody from the drama I had to go through, I want to.

I am putting the final touches on my e-book and it's probably the last time I'm going to answer any questions about my 17 month from relaxed hair to my natural texture on the blog. I originally created this blog to document that very challenging odyssey, but an e-book is a more organized/linear way for me to share and I want to make sure that everything is in there. Of course, I've answered hundreds of questions about my transition since I started the blog in 2007 and the answers are all in the e-book, but I want to make sure I don't leave anything out. So, if you have any questions about my transition or an issue with your transition that you think I may be able to help with... please leave them in the comments or e-mail them to info@maneandchic.com.

  1. Yes I have a question about transitioning. I haven't pressed my hair in 3 weeks and I have washed it 3 times but I am having problems with my ends. So i have never had a relaxer but I have been having my hair pressed/flat ironed all my life so my ends are very tamed and straight. I have no idea what to do with them! I am doing twist out but they aren't lasting very long and unravel at the ends. What products do you think I should use? do you think my ends will curl up again? if you need more info I wrote about it in detail in my blog. http://sarcasticpanic.blogspot.com/
    Thank you!

    I do have a question. I read and hear a lot about naturals having to moisturize daily (usually with shea butter) and seal with one or more natural oils. I'm wondering if this is necessary for those in transition? I still have 8-9 inches of relaxed hair and oiling it that often will weigh my hair down heavily and turn it into a greasy mess. Does the shea butter and oil regimen benefit only full naturals? Or should transitioners be doing so as well?

  3. Hi. Next month (July), it will mark my 3 year break-up with perms. I've told everyone I know.. no one really cares b/c I change my hair styles every other month. But it's exciting. I have yet to wear out my natural hair. I'm not yet comfortable with the look. For the past 3 years I've had braids and weaves to help my hair grow. I use oils and greases but of course my front edges are a mess. What do you recommend to help my edges grow. And What steps can I take to getting my natural hair soft? A few friends recommended that I find a good dominican salon and have them train my curls. I'm at a lost.
