    Hello friend! You’re doing such a wonderful job! I watch a lot of your tutorials and Im also transitioning to the natural curly hair. My hair is long and I don’t want to do the BIG C. Washing my hair is a struggle because the roots are very curly and sometimes dry. What products would you recommend to ease the dryness and add that soft feeling? Also, during your transition, what did you do for the natural curly look?

      HEY BOO!!! Thanks for stopping by 🙂 I highly recommend Elasta QP creme conditioning shampoo & don’t forget to deep condition! My current DC is Aussie 3 Minute Miracle + a few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. I detangle my hair & let the DC sit for awhile, then I rinse it out w/ cold water. That makes for easier styling sessions.

      During my transition, I did a few wash n goes, but looking back… they weren’t that great, LOL! The ends were still permed & wouldn’t curl naturally. I wore roller sets to blend the 2 textures.

    I just want to say that I love your hair! I have tried rollersetting my hair and it always comes out so curly! Until I seen your tutorial I would have never thought to use a curling iron! Thank you so much!

      And I love YOUR hair ma’am!

      YES, VERY CURLY! Regardless of how large the diameter of the roller is, my hair always seems to curl slightly tighter than that, SMH! Hot curling it helps me to create a uniform curl while taming some of the frizz.

    Hi, I found you on Hairscapades. I can’t wait to see more of your tutorials, epecially makeup. I’m really challenged when it comes to eye shadow blending 🙂

    Just wondering…what is the name of the ‘brush’ you’re using during your wet roller set? I use the Denman shampoo brush to smooth my hair, but I’ve never seen that one you’re using…similar results.

    Thanks! 😀

    Hello, your tutorials are awesome! But my question is what is the natural texture of your hair without using products. My hair is thick but after using leave in conditioner it is “soft” will I potentially get the same outcome that I see in your pictures?

    • Sham October 13, 2012 at 10:13 am # <<< This is a pic of freshly washed hair prior to styling. I really don't wear my hair out naked.

      My best advice to you is to experiment. It may take several attempts before you find the right product to get the style you want. And even when you do you'll have to play around with the dosage. Too much leave-in condish can leave your hair feeling tacky, hard or "producty" & too little product may not give it enough hold & require you to restyle more often than you'd like. Trial & error is the name of the game! 😉

    Hey Sham,

    I have been watching your tutorials since I met you at Antoinette & Raven girls night. Lord I am glad I met you LOL. Anyway I decided to do the BC nothing irritated me more than the two textures so now I have a itty bitty boy cut!! Have you ever heard of or experienced scab hair? I hear a lot of people speak of it and now that I have gotten my hair cut it is definitely unmanageable, it wont hold moisture or anything no matter how much I try…..Your hair stays beautiful and although you didn’t do the BC and you cut as you transititioned I just wanted to know if you ever experienced it?
