- Section hair into four parts
- Apply a generous mixture of Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque mixed with Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) and Jamaican Black Castor oil
- Cover with plastic cap
- Shampoo hair in two sections (front-back), and detangle. I used Creme of Nature Detangling, Conditioning Shampoo.
- Deep Condition hair. I used Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Replensing Pak. I loved how it made my hair feel. Worth keeping on the DC list!.
- Cover hair with plastic cap
- Sit under dryer for 30 mins or cover plastic capped head with towel for 1 hour
- Wash hair to remove DC product.
- Dry hair with T-shirt to minimize frizz. Using the t-shirt also dried my hair faster
- Section hair into three parts. First, divide from middle front to middle of hair, and then from ear to ear. It should look like you are writting a T. The two front sections will be the same, where as the back section will be bigger.
I decided to give my hair a good combing session and a half inch trim. I used a paddle brush for my relaxed ends and a wide tooth comb for my natural hair growth. Before doing the combing, I examined my hair for any breakage. I highly recommend doing this. I found only a small patch of breakage on my crown section. Nothing to be too alarmed about. I was actually okay with it and this patch of hair was au naturale. It was very soft and had a curly pattern to it. Yeah! I hope the rest of my hair feels and looks like this when I am done transistioning. SO EXCITING!!!!
