Okay, I'm having an information overload! I have chosen to try and transition ONCE again and I don't know where to start! I really don't want to do the big chop because I have been relaxing for so long, I would be close to BALD and I just really don't have the courage to chop so much of my hair off. However, I do plan to cut my hair frequently while I transition. I went for about six months last time and I had major breakage and I just don't know what I was doing wrong. I went for my ends to be trimmed, moisturized frequently, and shampooed every two weeks. Okay, back on topic. My question is where do I begin? My last relaxer was March 14th, and I had a sew in installed the day after. I plan to take out my sew in this weekend to care for my natural hair but where do I begin? To shampoo or co-wash? Hot oil treatment or no hot oil treatment? Deep condition or no deep condition?!! Confused

Clearly, I'm going crazy over here with all this information on the board so someone PLEASE lead me in the right direction and break it down for me!

It may take you a very long time to find out what kind of hair products you like and the right way to take care of your hair.  I wish I could give you the secret ingredient, but there are so many ways to take care of your own hair.


As a quick, very first and basic suggestion, I'd try leaving in a quarter (or slightly larger) size amount of hair conditioner in your hair.  Spread it all over, especially on the ends.  Then rub some type of oil into your hair.  It can be as fancy as coconut or sweet almond oil or as simple as extra virgin olive oil or the cooking oil you have in your kitchen.

Then you can let your hair air dry, pat it off with a clean t-shirt or twist your hair and let dry that way.

Just try those things and see how it works for you.   Most hair care regimens start with these basic steps, with variations on what each person needs.  I've been doing just this to my hair for so long and it works just fine.  Cute every time.

Everyday things that we do to our hair can lead to lackluster locks — and even hair loss. To help you find out if you may be damaging your hair unintentionally, ask yourself the following questions. If you answer “yes” to any question, be sure to read the text that follows. It explains why hair loss can result and what changes dermatologists recommend to head off hair loss.

· Do you vigorously towel dry your hair?
Vigorously drying wet hair with a towel can cause hair loss because wet hair is more elastic and more vulnerable to breakage than dry hair. Instead of rubbing hair dry, absorb the water by wrapping your hair in a towel — or just let your hair air dry.

· Do you brush or comb your hair when it is wet? If have straight hair and are of Caucasian or Asian descent, try to comb and brush your hair only when it is dry. Brushing or combing your hair when it is wet can stretch the strands causing them to break.
People who have tightly curled or textured hair or are of African descent should comb or brush their hair when it is wet. Doing so decreases the chance of hair breakage.

· Do you use a blow dryer or curling iron?
The high heat from a blow dryer can actually boil the water in the hair shaft leaving the hair brittle. Dermatologists recommend letting your hair partially air dry before you style or comb. This gives your hair excellent body, and there is less chance of hair damage. Decreasing the number of times per week that you blow dry is another way to help limit the damage.
If you use a curling iron to add body to your hair, be sure you do not leave the curling iron in place for more than a second or two. No matter what your hair type, the excessive heat can damage your hair.

· Do you use styling products that promise a long-lasting hold? While these products may give your hair unbeatable hold, using a comb to style your hair after your apply the product often causes the hair to break. Over time, this can lead to significant hair loss. Reducing the use of these products can minimize hair loss.

· Do you try to fit 100 brush strokes per day into your hair-care routine? It is a myth that100 strokes a day promotes healthy hair. Vigorous brushing can strip the ends of the hair, causing split ends. Dermatologists recommend that brushing be kept to a minimum to limit breakage.
· Do you color, perm, or relax your hair?

Dermatologists recommend that coloring, bleaching, permanents, and hair relaxers be used on a limited basis. All damage the hair and can cause dry, brittle strands.

· Do you wear braids, a ponytail, or hair extensions? Tight braids, ponytails, and hair extensions can damage hair — and when worn for too long cause hair loss. All of these styles pull on your hair and when worn continuously usually cause tension that leads to breakage. If the tension continues, traction alopecia (hair loss caused by pulling on the scalp) can develop.

· Do you let the sun color your hair?
Excessiveexposure to the sun can cause hair to become weak, dry, rough, faded, and brittle. You are especially susceptible to this if you use chemicals to bleach or lighten the natural color of your hair and then expose your hair to the sun. The chemicals often cause unsightly yellowing, fading, and a dull appearance. Even natural brunette hair can react to the sun and develop a reddish hue.

To protect your hair from discoloration dermatologists recommend using a leave-in conditioner that contains zinc oxide and wearing a wide-brimmed hat. A hat provides the added benefit of protecting your face and scalp from the harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays that cause skin cancer.


· Do you skip the conditioner? Dermatologists recommend using a conditioner after every shampoo.While a conditioner cannot repair hair, it can increase shine, decrease static electricity, improve strength, and offer some protection from harmful UV rays. This, in turn, can significantly improve the look of damaged or weathered hair.


· Do you condition your hair after getting out of a swimming pool? Wetting and conditioning your hair before you dive in helps protect your hair from the damaging effects of the chlorine. After swimming, be sure to use a specially formulated “swimmers” shampoo and deep condition to replace lost moisture.


The next time you are washing, styling, or treating your hair, think about how it will affect the overall health of your hair. Even slight changes can make a huge difference.
