Tips for Long-term transitioning to Natural Hair

Watch ... and take note!

Here are my 10 top Transitioning Tips:
  1. Treat your hair as if it was already in its natural state
  2. Moisture - Moisture - Moisture
  3. Be pro-active about hair growth - proper care, vitamins, drinking water, exercising
  4. Learn all you can about pH balance, if you choose to mix products.
  5. Do your own research before putting products in your hair.  Watch product review videos on YouTube.
  6. Protect your hair with protective styles- keeps your hair from breaking
  7. Don't over manipulate your hair
  8. Find a non obvious part of your hair (back side) that you can do a mini-chop on- That will be natural and you can test products on it.
  9. What works for other might not work for you.. trial and error.
  10. Cover your hair at night, use a satin or silk bonnet/scarf.  Or a silk pillowcase if you don't like putting anything on your head to sleep.

Since I plan to long-term transition, what other tips do you have for me?
