    Whether you've got coils, waves, or serious texture, you curly-haired babes know your manes require some special treatment. Luckily, the ladies from Naturally Curly are more than qualified to guide you through the curl lexicon (pineappling? 4B?) and school you in the best treatments to get the most spring for your buck.
    The process of transitioning from relaxed hair to your natural texture can feel...how do we put this...kind of like being a teenager. There are awkward stages — your hair is not totally straight, not yet curly. You can’t help but constantly compare yourself to others and go through periods of low confidence and self-doubt. You’re in uncharted territory with the new growth and sometimes miss the relaxed days when everything felt familiar.

    We’ve been there, so seven of our NaturallyCurly editors are sharing the tips and products that got them through the awkward growing pains. These days, there are products on the market specifically formulated for transitioners, and they’re a great place to start, but you can get the moisture and strengthening ingredients you need in regular products, too, if you know what to look for.
