I thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog and the useful information it contained. I made the big chop in October and is loving it every since then. I am on the right track with the five steps but trimming every 8 weeks seems awfully long, I would have a forest by then. I will try the Refresher Hair spray suggested.

Hi Maryyam, Thanks for reading and leaving a comment!
Hi Latoya! Sharie Kelly. Sade H. Donna Mc. Sounds like you just have to be patient, it will grow back with time. Maria Vincent. Paper-cutting or dull scissors can cause split ends. As you get further into the transition, your ends will get weaker. Remember, the demarcation line where your natural and relaxed hair meet is extremely fragile so you want to always strengthen your hair as much as possible. Pre-pooing is the process of moisturizing your hair before you shampoo. This strengthens your hair and helps prevent breakage.
I usually pre-poo with a cheap rinse-out conditioner and olive oil.
The conditioner not only helps strengthen your hair, but it works through any tangles before you shampoo. I shampoo my hair in sections so I apply the pre-poo to each section and let it sit for at least an hour. Before I get in the shower, I gently detangle each section with my fingers and remove any shed hairs. This process is more time consuming but it saved me a lot of breakage. As you get into your 3rd or 4th month of the transition, your new growth will begin to make detangling more difficult.
Keeping your hair in sections as you pre-poo, shampoo and condition will save you a lot of breakage and shedding. Deep conditioning is what keeps your relaxed hair and new growth healthy as you transition. It also helps you retain moisture especially during those winter months. Be sure to distribute the product from root to end. Sometimes we neglect our ends when applying product to our hair, but this is a critical step for long-term transitioners. I use Organics Olive Oil Replenisher.
I put a generous amount on after shampooing then placed a plastic cap on with a very warm wash cloth underneath.
I prefer to do this instead of sitting under the dryer. The warm cloth provides the heat to deep condition your hair. Some people prefer to detangle in the shower with a rinse out conditioner. During and after my transition, I detangle after showering while my hair is soaking wet. I apply a very generous amount of conditioner to each section and let it sit for a few minutes before gently working my wide-tooth comb through my hair. As your hair gets longer, you may want to divide your hair into more, smaller sections when you detangle.
