Transitioning to Natural Hair really is quite a process but with the right tools and especially the right products it can really make all the difference. In my experience finding moisturizing products made managing the two textures much easier .
Cleansers - Okay I think the co-washing trend an avoiding shampoo really got its start because although shampoo is definitely necessary, it can be drying and leave hair feeling stripped. I'm a believer in having the best of both worlds and went on the hunt for cleansers that would feel really moisturizing, one of my faves has to be the Redken All Soft Mega Shampoo.
This shampoo is formulated for hair that lacks moisture and it delivers. I thankfully found this product back when I was an associate at Ulta and it was used in the salon there. I've been a fan ever since. It's great for both natural and relaxed strands which is why I love it for transitioning and fully natural hair.
Treatment- Ouidad Curl Recovery Melt Down Mask
This mask is amazing for giving curls a boost in all the things they need. While transitioning keeping the two textures healthy can be a challenge. This mask has moisture, protein, and helps with elasticity this treatment has you covered. I also love that this mask is self-heating and that it makes the hair feel so buttery. The slip this product has will definitely make detangling easier, something I found to be a challenge when transitioning.
Styling Product - Lotta Body Coconut and Shea Oils Setting Lotion
Okay, okay, now hear me out before you give me the side eye. I know most ladies are team gel, or team custard/pudding but don't sleep on Styling foams. They can be used for all kinds of styles. Twistouts, braidouts, rod sets, flat twists... you name it. I also find these stylers to give the perfect balance of definition while being lightweight enough to give volume too. When newly natural finding the right product combos can be hard, which is why I love this one and done product.
Okay that's 3! If you found this helpful be sure to share !
