So, you’ve bought all the products you need to start your healthy hair journey but how do you start?
Here are some basic rules to follow for an easier transition from all the harsh chemicals that your hair got used to:
- This one is common knowledge but we’re gonna say it anyway, stop damaging your hair with heat.
- Don’t use any products with sulfates, silicones, parabens, waxes, drying alcohols, or mineral oils.
- Dry your hair with a cotton t-shirt or a microfiber towel.
- Sleep on a satin pillowcase, as the cotton pillowcases can cause friction between your hair and cause fizziness.
- Use a satin scrunchie to tie your hair to avoid any tugging to your hair that might be caused by regular hair ties.
What is the transition period?
- It is the period where your hair transitions from damaged hair to healthy hair.
How long is the transitional period?
- The transition period differs from person to person. It depends on how long you have been using products with harsh chemicals and how much damage has occurred to your hair from the heat and hair dyes.
- When you switch out your shampoo with harsh chemicals with a safe shampoo, your hair will feel greasy in the beginning but don’t freak out. It is just your hair adjusting to a new product.
- If you feel the urge to wash your hair more than twice a week with your shampoo, don’t. Your hair is clean but the oils that were dried out by the sulfate shampoos are being released.
