Simple hairstyles for transitioners...

I have been transitioning for about 3 months and I have been wearing simple styles.  I will post some pictures
of some of the styles that i have worn.  These will include twist outs, braid outs, and straw sets. At the end I will include pictures of ways that I make these styles stretch so I would not have to manipulate my hair too often.  Hope you enjoy the pictures.  I will be doing tutorials on how to do these styles. After some practice many have started to have better results.  If there are particular styles that anyone want a tutorial on, feel free to comment or send a message telling me which one. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Co-wash and detangling

This is the first video I am doing.  It consists of me doing a cowash on my hair.  Again I am 3 months into my transition.  I started out by wetting it, and putting conditioner in it while I detangle.  Hope this helps anyone that is having troubles with tangling while washing out previous styles.  Enjoy!

First Post- a little about myself

Hello Ladies,
This is my first post. So I decided to tell a little about myself. I am currently transitioning from relaxed to natural hair. My last relaxer was May 2011. Not sure of the exact day, but it was right before I graduated from college (May 14,2011).  My 3 month mark was this previous weekend.  I have been seeing nice growth.  From what I have read hair grows about 1/2 inch a month.  I have only measured mine once, last month. Measurements: 2inches in the front, 2 1/2 inches on sides and back.  I started out doing braid outs and twist outs.  Found that I was probably wasn't the best idea since I had to retwist/rebraid every night.  For the past few weeks I have been trying to do some protective styling.  I plan on posting EVERYTHING concerning transitioning to natural hair.  Please feel free to give suggestions on topics for future post.  I am extremely excited about this and hope you join me on this journey. 

Live, Laugh, Love, and Stay FABULOUS
