How To Wash and Detangle Transitioning Hair! 

Washing Transitioning hair:

Of course we need a video to show myself washing transitioning hair.

This video covers how I wash, deep conditioning, and detangle transitioning hair!

I have already pre-pooed and prepared my transitioning hair to be washed. It is better to have the hair in twists or braids because it truly helps you keep your hair from tangling and knotting.

Washing Transitioning Hair is a great step to learn, but you also need to know what to do before you big chop!

I have already pre-pooed and prepared my hair to be washed. It is better to have the hair in twists or braids because it truly helps you keep your hair from tangling and knotting. It will make going natural from relax much more simple.

This is my transitioning hair five months post relaxer. I do this method of washing because my natural hair texture is very different from that of my relaxed hair. It's like I have a mini afro underneath the relaxed ends. I have 4b/4c natural hair and it can tangle within itself and my relaxed hair very easily!

I take the mixture into my hand and begin rubbing it into my scalp.

This process can get messy so have a towel on hand to keep it at a minimum.

Notice that I am focusing on my scalp because this is the portion that needs to be clarified. When you clarify, it cleans all dirt, product build up, and debris from your scalp and hair.

After you have applied it to your hair, you will then massage to mixture into the scalp for about five minutes or until you feel a tingling sensation. Make sure that you don't miss any section of your scalp.

Rinse the hair.

Pat with towel or t-shirt to remove excess amount of water. While hair is still damp apply deep conditioner. Then detangle with wide tooth comb. Next you will re-plait hair and put on a plastic cap. Leave the deep conditioner on 20 minutes or more. Yes you can leave this in overnight.

Look at how much hair I loss or should I say didn't lose!

In my opinion you cannot detangle transitioning hair the same way that you detangle relaxed or natural hair.

Transitioning hair is special because you have two different textures in your hair. Natural Hair and Relaxed Hair. Transitioning hair is more prone to breakage because the line where your natural hair and relaxed hair meet also called the line of demarcation is weak. So you have to be more careful when you are manipulating your transitioning hair.

This started off as an experiment to see if this could help me stop my hair from breakage, but now I see that this is something that I need to continue to do!

I saw a huge difference in how much hair I loss doing my detangling process.

Thanks for watching and reading....Have a blessed day!
