How long have you been transitioning?
I have been transitioning since July

Tell us your hair story. Why did you decide to transition?
Growing up I always wondered why my hair never seemed to be long. I would always see family members and friends with beautiful long locks yet my hair never passed my shoulders. I have been relaxed for about 13 years (I'm 21 yrs. old now), which has basically been most my life. What triggered me to go further with this transition was early this summer when my hair started to get weak and extremely frail. As a result I started to pray about it, and I finally realized that I had to stop relaxing my hair b/c it was causing the breakage/ damage.

What have you discovered so far in your transitioning journey?
I have discovered that eating right ( such as your proteins) , drinking plenty of water , and taking vitamins can help your hair grow fast and strong.

What technique has helped you the most during your transition?
My best technique is pre-shampooing my hair with various oils such as Extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil and most importantly I deep condition EVERY week, needless to say I have no breakage and I barely have shedding. Another thing I forgot to add, is that I trim my relaxed ends gradually every month. (New Growth = trim relaxed ends )

Your advice to the readers
My advice to readers is to drink lots of water, eat healthy ( fish, chicken, greens, etc.), take vitamins, and DEEP Condition at least 2x a month

She's adorable! I agree with eating right to help your hair. Fast food didn't help my skin or hair.

Glad you decided to transition. I've already done two BC's and I don't plan on a 3rd one... maybe.
