Breanna Rutter


Hello everyone this is Breanna Rutter author of one of my most popular books the natural hair Bible and founder of for these video I love to answer the questions that you all send me via email so any of you have any questions you would like for me to answer be sure to check out the description box below for additional information this video is dedicated to an email that I received from Sonya she says that she she's transitioning with her hair and she wants to know what are some things she can do to actually make her hair appear more curlier so I understand exactly where you're coming from Sonya especially when you're transitioning because you have two different textures of hair that constantly fight each other and you just feel like what do I do so I got some tips for you the very first thing that you want to do before you are worrying about styling your hair is that your hair is thoroughly detangled to begin with that means that your wide tooth comb Should be able to go in from the root in consistently slide down without any snacks or snaps or anything like that so whatever works for you with your hair you can try using a Denman brush you can use a wide tooth comb and then follow up with a smaller tooth comb to get you really detangled you can even try a paddle brush to actually detangle your hair as well but in order to get a consistent result when styling got to make sure that your hair is thoroughly detangled and then following that you want opt for styles that actually enhance your curls and help you to blend both of those worlds together and that's going to include doing a lot of perm sets and a lot of flexi Rod sets a lot of Bantu knot outs a lot of twist outs a lot of braid outs now twist outs typically don't work as well for transitioning hair for some it fine if they do a twist out and then put perm rods on the end but is better to do a braid out on transitioning hair because you can get more of a consistent result versus a braid out or twist out. But you can always always use perm rods and flexi rods to blend your hair so that way it doesn't look like you have perm ends and then my last tip of course is that you gotta trim off any hairs to your comfort level near the ends so in order to make styling your hair a lot more easier to make a lot less fussy and things like that you gotta remember to constantly off your relax and so that way you can be 100% natural since that's your goal so this could mean that every 2 to 3 months that you trim off about an inch or half an inch of hair however is best for you you gotta keep in mind that the longer your relax ends are the less visible your overall shrinkage will be but if you have very small relax ends and and then you trim them off to see your total shrinkage level for some women they shrink to about 70 to 80% of their actual length it's crazy but that's the world of natural hair you got shrinkage and then you got the ability to stretch your hair and were so many different styles so I want to say delete good luck on your journey and that I hope all of these tips have helped you and also on before any of you go make sure to sign up for my email list so that way you can be automatically entered into giveaways that I do and also only there I update you with exclusive content so until then I'll see all of you in my very next video
