Transitioning Hair Products

It’s not easy. Establishing the right transitioning hair products for your new hair journey can often times be a long process. As your hair grows from its relaxed state to its new natural hair texture, it is very important that you be very careful with your hair during this time.

The line where your relaxed hair texture meets your new curly hair texture is referred to as the line of demarcation. It is this line that is extremely delicate. As you comb through your hair, you need to be very cautious and take your time because you do not want to cause any breakage in this sensitive area. Your locks in this area are extremely fragile in this area. You also have the option of removing all of your chemically relaxed locks in order to transition quicker and make the move a simpler one. However, there are some individuals who want to maintain their hair length for as long as they can.

Finding the right transitioning hair products is very important when transitioning. During this time, how often you condition your hair will play a key role in your hairs overall health. When you have finished washing your hair, condition your hair to add softness and keep breakage at bay. Invest in a wide tooth comb and use it only on damp hair to remove any tangles. Regularly deep conditioning your hair will assist in keeping and maintaining its moisture levels.

Although there are a ton of products available to help you transition from relaxed to natural hair, one of the top transitioning hair products can be found at http://www.CurlyHairSalon.com – a top website catering to those with curly hair. The transitioning hair products included in the kit really help to tame and treat the hair as it moves into a new growth stage. The new texture of your hair is delicate, so using the right curly hair care products is very important. Caring for your hair the right way by following these key steps is an important part of the process.

Learn How to Grow Black Hair Faster With These Quick Tips!

If you need to tend to your hair properly and if you’re looking to grow longer hair faster, be sure that you’re not using hard water on your hair! You’ll need to first determine if you live in such an area. Hard water test kits do exist and you can easily order them online at places like Amazon.com. If you have been dealing with dry, brittle hair that’s breaking, it is very possible that you may be putting hard water on your hair. If you live in an area where hard water is a problem, invest in a shower filter that softens your water for you. A lot of individuals don’t realize how damaging hard water can be to your hair and the damage it can cause.

When you have healthy hair, it’s smooth. Each healthy hair shaft is like a shingle on a roof. However, if your hair has been damaged and exposed to hard water and other style mishaps for a longer period of time, those styling mistakes along with your hard water, can cause your hair to become extremely brittle, dry, tangled, frizzy and damaged. This will slow down your chances of growing long hair faster. Unhealthy hair that has undergone these types of issues leadst to hair where you can see the damage. This is because each hair shaft fails to lay flat, making your hair look dull and flyaway. Healthy hair is supposed to lay down this way. This gives it its smooth texture. So when you see shiny hair, it’s usually someone who has taken care of their hair. That is why it looks so healthy! Proper care is essential. If you have damage to your hair, they no longer lay flat. When you’re putting hard water on your hair, it causes the scales on your hair shaft to lift. This lifting leads to misbehaving tresses! You definitely don’t want hair that’s misbehaving. In order to grow your hair fast, you need to use proper care. Good care ultimately leads to longer, stronger, more manageable hair that grows at a quicker rate then hair that is not being cared for properly.

Dry, brittle and damaged hair cannot absorb water the same way that healthy hair can. It can only do so with the aid of styling products that mimic the characteristics of healthy hair. The reason why a lot of products eventually fail to work on damaged hair that has been exposed to hard water, is because the mineral content in the hard water is too high. This high mineral content fights off any good that the products is supposed to result in. It is this very fact that no product works on hair that is damaged. If your hair is damaged, no product will work wonders on your hair! It’s as simple as that. The ultimate goal for you, is to get healthy, longer hair!

Understanding your hair and caring for it properly, is essential in order to experience longer, stronger and healthier hair.

If you are striving to grow longer black hair faster, and discover why it’s completely possible to grow long healthy hair without all the damage, go to this page to find out everything about growing longer hair faster – http://www.curlyhairsalon.com/grow-black-hair-faster.html.

It can be a hard procedure. Discovering the most suitable transitioning hair products for your locks can often be a long process. As your hair grows from its relaxed state to its new natural hair texture, it is very important that you be very careful with your hair during this time. The place on your hair where your straight chemically relaxed hair meets your curly natural hair texture is called the line of demarcation. It is this line that is extremely delicate.

You can also choose to cut off your chemically relaxed hair in order to make your transition an easier one. But, some individuals make the decision to keep their length as long as they possibly can.

Investing in the right transitioning hair products is essential to moving from relaxed hair to your natural hair texture. During this time you need to condition your hair regularly. After washing your hair add a conditioner to soften the hair more in order to avoid breakage and damage. Use a wide tooth comb when your hair is damp to get rid of hair that is tangled. Regularly conditioning your hair is very important as it helps to maintain and restore your hairs moisture levels.

Even though there are many different products that claim to assist those transitioning, the top transitioning hair products can be found at http://www.CurlyHairSalon.com.

Zahara Jolie-Pitt’s Hair “A Hot Mess?”

Hello Curly!

An interesting article that makes you think is always a good read…

I recently read this Newsweek article about Zahara Jolie-Pitt’s hair. If you don’t know she’s the adopted Ethiopian child of celebrity super couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. I can’t say I agree or disagree with this article simply because I didn’t find photos of Zahara’s ‘messy’ hair (yes I did a photo search). I mean yes, there were some photos where her hair was out and didn’t have extremely “defined” curls. I also saw her hair in some photos worn out and showing a bit more of her natural hair texture (perhaps without any product). It was a bit more on the kinky side.

But I thought about this author’s point of how important hair is in the black community (which is sooooo true). Chris Rock clearly addressed this in his most recent movie “Good Hair” which you can watch in theaters or view the trailer online. Perhaps Zahara’s hair may look messy to some in the black community who put A LOT of emphasis on a “neat”, “tame” hairstyle. Is Zahara’s hair really messy? Perhaps Brad and Angelina see her hair as beautiful, and love showing its natural texture without manipulation. Maybe Brad and Angelina don’t feel Zahara’s hair has to be manipulated in any way. They may love and admire her natural texture and feel that Zahara should show it off. Perhaps we in the black community need to learn to embrace our own hair texture and see it as beautiful without manipulation – whether chemically, with products or manipulated to tame it into shape.

Perhaps Zahara’s hair should have a plats, braids and clips on a regular basis to “neatly tame her hair” (yes there are photos of her with this style). Maybe Brad and Angie and others outside of the black community don’t see Zahara’s hair as ever being messy at all. They may just love Zahara’s hair just the way it is – in it’s natural state.

Sometime’s it’s all about perception and acceptance. If everyone wore their afro textured hair out in a “kinky” style and it was the most popular hairstyle worn by celebrities, those in high positions, teachers, students everywhere… I’m sure it would be a non-issue.

However I do have to agree somewhat with the author that until that time comes and to be accepted as a young black girl – like Zahara, fitting in can sometimes mean taming what’s naturally yours. It’s so unfortunate but it’s true.

I’m not even done with my thoughts on this because there is so much more to say. But leaving on this note, share your thoughts and experiences with this issue? Do you agree with this ARTICLE about Zahara Jolie-Pitt and her hair? The debate on hair continues…
