Items you need to Transition Hair

Posted on

Okay, so I constructed a list of the items I needed to transition my hair from relaxed to natural.  Here you go…

  1. Baking
  2. Apple
    Cider Vinegar (For those who don’t know, it’s not two separate containers; it is an actually bottle that says “Apple Cider Vinegar”)
  3. Honey (Yep, the Honey bee stuff)
  4. Extra
    Virgin Olive Oil
  5. Coconut Oil (or Extra Virgin Coconut Oil — I got the regular stuff LouAna)
  6. Aloe
    Vera Gel (e.g. 12 oz Fruit Of The Earth Aloe Vera Gel)
  7. Almond
    Oil (16 oz Optional)
  8. Jojoba
    Oil (4 oz Optional)
  9. 2 bowls
    (that can hold 2 cups of water)
  10. 2 Water
    Bottles (Empty the water out of the water bottle like Osaka
    or Dasani for example)
  11. Ice
    Pick, Dremel, or Reamer (Something to make a 4mm hole into plastic) and put a hole
    in each cap of the water bottles
  12. 3/4 inch
    perm rod (12 rollers)
  13. Shower
  14. Silk or Satin Bonnet or Scarf
  15. Spray
  16. Wide Tooth Comb (and I mean W I D E – like 0.5 inches Teeth Wide)
  17. Towel
  18. Cheap Hair Conditioning (We’re not using any kind shampoo at all since it dries out the hair. So, if you already have some Hair Conditioning, just use that to wash your hair)

I couldn’t find Almond Oil or Jojoba Oil in Wal-Mart, and I only bought them because my husband and I happened to have a 30 minute wait for a restaurant we wanted to eat at and GNC (a nutritional supplement store) was next door and we went in. Everything else, I got at Wal-Mart down the cake/cooking aisle and at a Beauty Supply Store
