In my research so far, it has been consistent that no direct heat is to be applied to my hair during this transition time. For someone who keeps her hot curling iron always handy to "bump" her ends, this will be a major hurdle. I have not discarded it, but at least it is out of sight with the flat iron and crimp tool.
Other critical steps in this process are to moisterize and condition regularly. I am taking notes on recommended products and have consulted my beautician, haven't heard back from her though. In the meantime I am using my current conditioners.
I'll try to add pics of my hair throughout this transition. It'll be cool to see how many times I change my mind.
