The ladies at Tress Talk shared great tips for making that tough transition from permed hair to a natural state as well as styling tips for maintaining a lasting look.
- Patience: Growing out your hair takes time and there is no substitute for that.
- Moisturize: Natural curly/wavy/kinky hair tends to be drier than straight hair. Shampoo with a moisturizing product and deep condition your hair often. One way to sneak in a much needed treatment is to wash your hair at night and leave a rich condition in your hair overnight. Rinse it out in the morning and then style.
- Avoid towels and let your hair dry naturally as much as possible.
- Embrace flat twists as a transitional styling technique.
