The thing about going natural is that your products, go to styles & hair regiments change with the season, length of your hair & mood you are in. When I did my big chop 5 months ago I went through a bunch of products that naturals on YouTube swore by and hated all of them but one, Shea Moisture's curl enhancing smoothie. I haven't changed my mind about that product. It gives a me a nice, semi strong hold for my twist out & does a nice job defining my coils but about a month ago I decided to go back & give Eco styler another shot.
On May 4, 2013 I got my last relaxer. When I decided to go natural about 5 weeks later I was not prepared or too confidant that I would even stick to it. But here we are a whole year later and I not only stuck to it but I broke a lot of rules I initially set for myself.
When I decided to go natural I wanted to do a long term Transition. In theory I did because I didn't Big Chop until January (Almost 9 months in) but I honestly didn't see myself doing a big chop at all.
