    I should be in bed but found your page and can not stop watching tutorials.
    I wear my hair natural since 6 years, and even dying it since 5 cooper blond, kinda heavy stuff.
    But my hair is more healthy than it was when i relaxed it. I only use natural oils, and take care that there is no sillicon in my shampoo or conditioner.And cut the ends every 6 weeks, and I never had so long hair!
    So keep up with it 😀

    You get oil stains out with powder (cornstarch, baby powder), like rub it into the stain. Also, you have to work on getting rid of the Blue Magic, because I’m sure it has “petroleum jelly/mineral oil/lanolin” in it which is not healthy for black hair because it clogs pores and coats the hair shaft so that it takes in less moisture. You are really pretty. I love your skin and hair.

    Hi peeks great video. I have a question. When you colour your hair does the products you use do anything to the colour. Asking because I colour mine and I find I have to look around for products that dont drain the colour so much, its a strain. As you have been transitioning longer than me I thought you may have some advice. Sept this yr will be 1yr for me. ThanksDenise

    congrats on making it that far I’m a little over 15 months it’s so exciting and your so right about the beginning of transitioning it was quite annoying…..lol

    I love the way you say “Water Bottle”. Great Video….. I will try to see if I can get my lady to go with the natural look. As you say, you kinda have to hide it in the beginning until you see a significant amount of growth. I had shoulder length dreadlocks before I cut them off. My stylist kept pulling my hair out at the top as she was twisting it. Now it’s thin on top. Again…. GREAT VIDEO. Your VLOG is well put together. :-)

    I really enjoyed ur video, intro, and u have a contagious smile. Well done on reaching 12 months, im only 10 weeks away from being 12 months post relaxer, and its fantastic. Im a pj and proud of it….i enjoy discovering my hair, but cant wait to be fully natural. Ive cut 8inches so far….so just myt cut them off sooner rather then later…keep us uodated

    Great update. I chopped after 16.5 months and I intended to go 24 months so I can have length – but I got sick of seeing scraggly ends — and my hair was about BSL by then — but I cut it off and got used to the short hair quickly! Good luck on the reminder of your transition! You’ll feel a sign of relief – maybe not when you first cut, but you will! Each day I look at my curls/coils/kinks and I could not believe I used to kill it with chemicals!
