How long have you been natural or transitioning?
I have been transitioning for about 3 months. I realized that my hair was severely damaged and seriously wanted happy, healthier hair. I started transitioning in May.
When did you BC or plan on BCing?
I BC'ed on May 25. I was just so frustrated with my hair, constantly breaking off. I had plan to transition for a year but I was fed up, thus Monroe was born. I still have a bunch of relaxed ends but it's okay
A short regimen you can share?
Well when I have my twa, I usually co-wash with Hello Hydration by Herbal Essences about 2-3 times a week. I apply Shea Moisture Curl Milk and apply olive oil or jojoba oil, then apply my styler, whichever I plan on using that day. Once a week I wash with Hello Hydration by Herbal Essences, and DC with whatever is handy.
Right now I have in kinky twists, so I basically just focus on MOISTURE! Moisture is the key to healthy, happy hair!
Do you have any favorite products?
I LOVE Shea Moisture Curl Milk, and Kinky Curly Curling Custard! And I also love Hello Hydration Condish! I'm dying to try Carol's Daughter products.
