What’s Happening Now: Transitioning For a Year

Diane Da Costa
Curly Textured Expert

Its already one-year since transitioningmovement.com launched and showcased three amazing women, who received total makeovers as winners of the Carol’s Daughter Transition Me Beautiful contest!
I clearly remember that sunny Friday morning, oh so well. I greeted three beautiful transitioning women; Billi, Carnelia and Marquita at my salon, SimpleeBEAUTIFUL Boutique Salon to create new looks as part of an awesome transformational weekend. All the ladies received full consultations; the Transitioning 123 Kit was applied and conditioning steam treatments, along with color and cuts. Then I prepped their hair for their fabulous photo and video shoot that would take place the next day at Carol’s Daughter NYC headquarters in Tribeca. It was an exciting and exhilarating experience!
For an entire year, all three ladies received monthly Skype consultations to monitor their transitioning progress and the healthiness of their hair growth. As of April 2013, they have all successfully transitioned with healthy natural curls using the entire Carol’s Daughter hair care collection and the Transitioning 1-2-3 Kit for an entire year.
Today the ladies are continuing to grow out their hair for length and manageability. Billi has been playing around with color and funky extensions and recently tried the Carol’s Daughter Chocolat Smoothing Collectionfor a silky, smooth, punk rock style. Carnelia has explored all the natural textured sets like; bantu knots, the twist-out, braid-out, spiral rod sets and curly wash and go styles. Marquita, on the other hand, had the longest hair, so she grew her hair out. Then, she did the big chop. Now, she simply loves her wash and go, curly Fro. It’s been a fabulous transitioning journey for the ladies and I know they are well on their way to sporting lots of curls.
Here are 13 curly textured and transitioning tips to live by:
  • Be open to change
  • Try different looks with hair extensions, braids and weaves
  • Explore color options for fun
  • Trim your tresses regularly to maintain healthy ends––about every 2 to 3 months
  • Don't over shampoo the hair, co-wash in-between with Hair Milk Co-Wash Cleansing Conditioner
  • Remember, conditioners are your best friends
  • Protect your natural tresses from sun exposure with Black Vanilla Leave-In Moisturizing Conditioner
  • First refresh your curls with a leave in conditioning spray before completely wetting the hair every day
  • Always detangle with a wide tooth, wooden Bohn comb, preferably
  • Don’ t be afraid to smooth out your hair with heat protective products using, Macadamia Heat Protection Collectionor Chocolat Smoothing Collection
  • Keep your hairline and hair ends moisturized to prevent breakage and split-ends
  • Always protect the hair at night with a satin pillow case, scarf or bonnet
  • Don’t let your past negative hair experience affect the future of receiving positive professional advice
  • Live Your Life, Curlies!
