ConfusedHELP!Cry

So, I decided to transition to natural hair.. my last relaxer was in april this year. Before then, I was constantly weaving my hair. First I would weave, wash every 2 weeks and remove after a month.. but for about 6 months or more I got lazy and started weaving back to back and only washing and conditioning when I took my hair out. I took out my last and final weave about two weeks ago, there was a lot of growth but I am experiencing A LOT of sheddingOuch.. i guess it's not shedding rather breakage so I want to know where to start? I was planning to go to the salon to get all the damaged hair cut off.. i would rather transition slowly then BC all at once but if it means all that hair has to go then i'll do it, right now my hair is collar bone length... i will transition using half wigs (so i need a bit more hair to blend at the front), keep my hair in conrows during the week, only use natural products, no heat at all, spritz with rosemary water &glycerin daily... once that finishes i will switch to a water and aloe vera mix...wash 1x a week with terresentials and then deep condition with an olive oil and honey mix for 15 minutes, then detangle and conrow up while wet with a shea butter mix. I also wanted to put in Jamaican black castor oil 2x a week on my scalp - once after I wash and once mid week. My main issue over the past two weeks is that i put tooo much of the product in my hair.. its too oily so i have to cut back... I got all this from mixing different youtube video routines. Anyone have any thoughts?.. It sounds like a lot...Do you think this is a good plan for my hair? Pleaaaaseee pleaaase help Cry

your plan sounds good to me.  i would not cornrow wet though. i would let my hair get at least 80 percent dry before moisturizing with the butter.  you also avoid breakage that way.  hth! Smile

Transitioning for about 4 months now. I have only really started taking care of it for about a month now. Man this is hard. The breakage has slowed but its hard to deal with the two different textures. I've been using this keratin mist which has been a huge help especially where my new growth and relaxed hair meet. I don't know what I'm going to do for thanksgiving I guess a bun?? Today I am going to pick up a few more hair products. I'm so happy for this forum it has been a huge help and I've learned so much so far. Just reading the posts are encouraging!!!
 
Good luck ladies!!

Kushie, I would suggest incoporating a light protein condish to help with the breakage. V05 has some good light protein condishes . Look for hydrolized silk protein, silk amino acid in the ingredients, so you can know it has protein in it. You may benefit from some light protein, sinne your transitioning and having breakage. HTH!

I agree I used VO5 throughout my entire transition and experienced very minimal if any breakage and shedding. VO5 is still one of my staples.
