Transition Your Hair From Relaxed To Natural With These Easy Tips
Relaxers are used to straighten and soften the hair making the hair easier to style and if these products are correctly used then there is very little risk associated. However there is an increasing trend to move away from relaxed to natural hair and the Long & Lasting range caters for these choices. Royal Kulakade, sales consultant for Long & Lasting shares her tips on how to transition from relaxed to natural hair.
When growing your natural hair remember to keep the hair and scalp clean and nourished by washing at least every 2 weeks. Then apply a leave-in conditioner, for example try the NEW Long & Lasting Leave-in Conditioner with Protein and Olive Oil and apply Long & Lasting Excel-E Nourisher or Long & Lasting Anti-dandruff Hair Food to the scalp every 3 days. Do a treatment every 2 – 4 weeks to nourish and protect the previously relaxed hair to prevent shedding, use Long & Lasting Cholesterol Treatment for extra strengthening.
To grow your natural hair without cutting the previously relaxed hair try different styles such as weaves, braids, dreadlocks, cornrows, etc. Take daily care of your chosen style by applying the specific aftercare product such as Long & Lasting Silicone Serum for weaves or Long & Lasting Braid & Dreads Spray for braids, dreadlocks or cornrows.
Natural hair is brittle and dry and therefore prone to shedding so the key to a successful transition is to moisturize, moisturize and moisturize every step of the way. As the natural hair grows trim the ends of the previously relaxed hair every 4 – 6 weeks to strengthen the hair and reduce shedding.
Choose the confident care of Long and Lasting, and get on with your life, beautifully, with confidence
