With the summer heat, and alot of hummidity, how do you keep your roots pressed when you wear your hair straight?
I typically don’t wear my hair straight in the summer for just that reason. With me having so much hair, I tend to sweat alot and this Houston weather doesn’t help it at all. Whenever I wear my hair straight, I always apply Paul Mitchell’s Super Skinny Serum to it before applying heat. I usually just flat iron my ends, but when needed, I get as close to my roots as possible with the serum on. I also think that once your hair is “trained” for being worn straight that it will not flare up as much just like how it will frizz and puff up less. Hope this helps.
Hi, I'm transitioning to natural hair :) I have not had a perm since January I believe and I was just wondering is there any specific time length that I should wait before I go and cut the permed areas off? And what are good tips for transitioning?
There’s no specific time length, just make sure you cut it when you’re comfortable. Most folks transition for so many months or years because they want to have a particular length of hair before they wear it fully natural. If your comfortable with a TWA (teeny weeny afro), then you can go for it now. Just remember that you have to deal with shrinkage with natural hair, so whatever your length is, it’ll probably appear to be shorter than that.
When it comes to transitioning, you need to be patient and do as little styling with the two textures as possible. Where the natural and relaxed hair meet is prone to breakage, so minimal combing/styling is suggested. Styles like braids, kinky twists, sew-ins and transition styles like spiral and rod sets are recommended since they can be worn for longer periods of time and allow the hair to grow. Hope this helps…be blessed!!
