    Hi, i found your blog today and I cant stop smiling. Im new to the transitioning business and honestly ive been feeling discouraged a lot due to my cluelessness. Thanks for the guide.

  2. Lelo

    Hello there, Im Lelo from South Africa. Thank God I found your blog very inspiring, I’m 4 months into transitioning. My daughter is 1 year 3 moths and I chopped her hair when she turned one, Now I’m very frustrated because its taking forever to grow back and her scalp looks very dry, please advice on what product I can use

    • Chinwe Juliet

      Hi, Lelo!

      Thank God you found my blog! Yaay! You’re welcome! Do you want products you can use on your daughters hair or yours? If she’s just 1, give her some time, her hair will grow as long as you’re caring for it properly. Otherwise, when she’s 2 we can make adjustments. Also, it is not really good if your daughter is exposed to different types of products at her very young age.

  4. Beverly Elohor

    Hello, How are you doing? I just did the big chop and i have been using African black soap and shea butter, don’t even know my hair type. Please help.

    • Chinwe Juliet

      Hi Beverly!

      You need to have a full regimen and knowing your hair type is not difficult although it involves trial and error and depending on how ‘long’ your hair is, you can be able to tell by how it curls. Have a look at mine to have an idea of what your regimen should consist of.

  5. Rabia

    Hi,so glad I found a Nigerian,is it advisable I wash and deep condition my hair in braid(how Nigerians do it) and also apart from classic Nigerian braids do I need to switch up protective hairstyles?please help

    • Chinwe Juliet

      Yes it’s okay to shampoo and deep condition in braids. Just make sure to make your braids loose so the conditioner or shampoo can penetrate and can easily be rinsed out.

      Also, you can switch up protective styles. The whole point is to make sure they are not too tight and you can easily moisturize your hair underneath with them.
