Thanks. LOC method (leave in, oil, then cream) all day.. every day.. sleep on a satin pillow case.. and as much as I like too, I try not to touch my hair as much as humanly possible…
Thanks love.. I mean it sounds like you’re doing everything right.. and by “dry” do you mean it doesn’t have that “wet” look??? you know what I am talking about.. I wanted to be wet and wavy too but sometimes you just have to accept your hair texture for what it is and focus on making it HEALTHY which it sounds like you’re doing.. Hang in there boo!
Good for you!! you are one step closer to being the most authentic version of yourself ;)
I’d start by moisturizing, follow the LOC method… Find a good leave in, oil, and a cream that you can use to seal in moisture. Check out my flat twist video where I explain this method..
It sounds like you are on the fence as far as transitioning or big chop, I’d say cut it all off so you can learn about your hair as it grows out.. Transitioning sucks, I did for 4 months before i just couldn’t take it any more. As soon as I saw those baby curls come in I fell in love…
Anyways, do you boo! and I hope you enjoy your journey wherever it takes you!
Tea tree oil has been a lifesaver for me, I used to get acne scars but they have faded over time since I’ve been using tea tree oil..
get a small applicator bottle fill it with distilled water or aloe vera juice and put in a few drops of tea tree oil, put on a cotton ball and apply to face as a toner..
a cheaper way that I’ve heard is effective is lemon juice.. literally cut a lemon in half and rub that baby on your face then rinse…
Oh and if your acne prone, you gotta exfoliate!
