How to transition from perm to natural correctly
Okay so now your natural or at least want to be natural and you want to make sure that you do it the correct way. What is the point in going natural and making your hair even more unhealthy. The post that I made yesterday Natural hair vs Perm hair, I stress the health benefits of being natural.

You have to understand that when your natural you not going to do the exact same things you may have been taught. The one thing that you have to do immediately is change your shampoo and change your conditioner. The shampoo that you need now is one that is majority water based because your natural hair will need as much moisture as possible. I suggest starting with something very easy to transition too.

Which gave me a different much softer consistency. This is only for the transitioning time so don’t get use to it.
