This month makes three years since I did my semi big chop. I have learned a lot in the last three years about what to do with my hair.
The last three years have been interesting. I began transitioning in the fall of 2007. During my transition I wore my hair in braids, rod sets and spiral curls. My hair was cut in February 2008 to get rid of the remainder of relaxer in my hair. My last relaxer was in July 2007. My hair was shaved in the back and cut really short in the front. I wore my hair in two strand twists in the front. I also wore my hair in the palm roll (see picture on right).
During the first year after my semi big chop, I wore my hair in two strand twists. The second year I continued to wear my hair in two-strand twists and I also work my hair in press and curl styles.
When I first went natural, I used the Carol's Daughter product line. This year I plan to do more styles and try products I have not tried before. I just recently purchased Jane Carter products. I have heard a lot about these products and would like to try them for myself. I purchased the Jane Carter Nourish and Shine. I heard that this product makes the hair really soft. This product is normally 20 something dollars but I caught it on sale on Amazon.com. I also purchased the Jane Carter Curl Defining Cream. I will be posting a video on my thoughts about the products. I can't wait to use them. Have you tried Jane Carter products? If so, how was your experience?
