The Transitioner FAQ Repository

Transitioning Repository

Because I have been notoriously bad about checking the Transitioners forum, I decided to post answers to the questions that seem to pop up the most. If you have missed a question or you would like to add an additional suggestion/comment, then by all means please do.

How often can I wash my hair?
As often as you would like. Sometimes I washed my hair every day. Sometimes it was once a week. It all depended on my mood and how my hair was reacting. Once I discovered no-pooing, my hair loved it so I washed every day.

Why is my hair shedding? Is this normal?
Being that this question appears on this list, I hope that you realize that you are not alone. We all shedded while transitioning. Some more than others. Personally, I had very little shedding. As true as it is today as it was while I was transitioning, a good trim is an excellent way to prevent shedding. I'm not sure that I understand why this helps (it doesn't follow logic) but it works wonders. I think that it has a lot to do (at least it does for me now) on preventing rough ends from catching on to things.

Another cause of shedding and breakage is how you are handling your hair. Be gentle with it. Detangle in the shower. Use wide tooth combs. Finger comb it.

Wearing natural hair is not a fad. It is not a fashion trend. It's the natural hair you were born with. So why can't you wear it?
Don't believe the negative hype..
