Importance of baggying to Transitioners. (What is Baggying?)
Baggying is when you apply a Moisturizer or Leave in conditioner to your hair(dry hair) then cover with a plastic shower cap or plastic sandwich bag for a period of time of about 1-4 hours preferably not over night. The cap traps the body heat generated through ur scalp (I think the secret to this is that the heat is exactly the amount of heat ur hair needs)
My experience with baggying, after baggying for about a week stretch i found that my ends have never been healthier, my ends became moist, thick and strong. That is why I feel that baggying will benefit us Transitioners very well, Healthy ends equals less or no breakage and hence no drastic shedding and breakage during our journey. Importance of baggying: -Retaining moisture -Hydrates hair -Thickens and strengthens ends -Retaining length How to baggy? Apply favorite moisturizer or leave in conditioner, cover with shower cap or plastic bag, leave on for 1-4 hours.
