Natural Hair Transitioning Diary: I can see my true texture shining through!
But I see your true colours
I see your true colours
That’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colours
True colours are beautiful,
Like a rainbow
I’ve been down and out all week long with one of the worst bugs I’ve ever picked up. It had me with headaches, swollen tonsils, feeling hot, feeling cold, earaches…I thought I was gonna die. 😐 Finally…finally it seems to be leaving me so I got up this morning to tend to my hair that I have allowed to roam free while I was down. It was matted and tangled like some real steel wool but armed with my new bottle of Herbal Essences Hello Hydration that all the blogs rave about I went to work. I sprayed some of my essential oil mix while conditioning because trust me, it needed all the help it could get and when I was done….I was in love!
My curls are looking REAL good! I can’t wait to be able to wash and go! I was seriously feeling the big chop itch right then and there. Was sooooo tempted to run get the scissors and shed away years of damage and strife.
With the flash on. Man that conditioner really worked wonders on my hair. The right product really does make all the difference. I’m about 5 and a half months into my transition and while I had initially said 6 months, now I really want to make it to June. I’ll be sporting a curly fro for the summer. 😀
I may be in Jamaica sometime soon. I can’t promise that when I go visit my hairdresser I won’t tell her to take it all off! The intention is to go get a spiral set, which has been by far my favourite transitioning style…but ya never know. Maybe I should invest in some Curlformers and a bonnet dryer asap before I make any big chops myself! I really want a stylist to cut it when I’m ready because I want it to have a nice shape plus I don’t wanna cut my curls neither do I wanna be left with any stringy ends that I didn’t see. Through trials and frustrations, I can see the end in sight and I’m so excited! I put it up in my usual 5 cornrows and I might do a youtube of the take down…we’ll see….
You got some good growth there, lady! And your hair is looking HEALTHY – both your natural hair and your relaxed hair. Sometimes finding the perfect moisture/protein balance for transitioning hair can get sticky…BAD! But it looks like you’re on the right track.
Happy Hair Growing!!! =)
