September 2009 Transitioning

Ok this is what I am doing to my hair for this month. Mostly protective styling and updos or sorts. I really like pulling my hair back with a stocking. In this way I'm able to adjust how tight it is on my head.

    Transition Hairstyle
    How do u get ur hairline so neat. I have fine 4c hair at the front and 4a/b in the middle. My hair does not lay flat no matter what I do. It has been 9 weeks since my last relaxer. I don't mind my roots and usually let it do what it wants but I am so jealous when I see the lovely waves some ladies have going on.

      Ok try this. Make sure you wet/dampen your front hairline that you want to lay down. Then either use an oil or a moisturizer on top of that. Then put Ecostyler gel (my fav) or whatever gel you like on top of that. I would then suggest you use a scarf for a minimum of 10 minutes. When you take the scaef off, you should have a nice flat wavy edge going on. I acheive mine a little different in that I will sometimes dampen my hair with a liquid leave in like Infusium, or sometimes instead of dampening my hair, I just put curl activator gel on first. Then I apply the Ecostyler gel. Sometimes I use a scarf and sometimes I don't. But when I do, I get the best results. Let me know if one of these suggestions work for you.

    Are you taking hair vitamins. I started half way through my transition and it helped a lot! Take those with Msm(sulfer) in them. It helps with growth and it helps to nourish your NG before it grows in!
