I’ve gotten a few questions about my transition period lately so I thought I’d share with a little #transformationtuesday ...
My first sulfate-free wash was August 6, 2018. I was really excited in the beginning, but I honestly had NO idea what I was doing. 😬 I kept “accidentally” using silicones because I didn’t understand ingredients and I didn’t even know what a final wash was. 🤦🏼♀️
So I mark the start of my curly girl journey around mid October 2018 because that’s when I got my hands on a copy of Curly Girl: The Handbook and all the puzzle pieces finally starting fitting together! 🤯
By the end of November/ beginning of December, things really started to change for me. The piece-y clumps I had for the first couple of months started to shift into larger, more defined clumps. This was also around the time that I saw my first ringlets. And now, even after experimenting with product application techniques ( #rakewetscrunch ) that I‘m sure will lead to stringiness, the clumps are STILL there! 🥳
I’m lucky to have had such a short transition period. A few years before starting the CGM, I pretty much gave up heat styling. I was just too lazy to keep straightening it every day. Pre-CG, I flat-ironed my hair maybe 5-6 times a year. So you know, sometimes being lazy has its perks! 😉
How long did it take for you to get through the transition period? If you’re still going through it, STAY STRONG! It gets better, I promise!! 🥰
