Transitioning to natural hair. It is probably one of the most discussed topics in the natural hair community. Everyone has a story. So do I. So I want to quickly discuss 5 tips for transitioning to natural hair.
But first, really quick, my natural hair story.
I was natural for most of my childhood and teenage years. My parents always made sure that my siblings and I were proud of who we were, including our skin and hair. I wore a lot of canerowed (cornrowed) styles in school and when I was about 17, I wanted to do something different. I started relaxing my hair and experimenting with colour. After being totally done with the smell of relaxers, I decided in 2008 to transition to natural hair. I had no idea what to expect, or what I was doing. I also did a lot of research and experimentation into what products made my hair happy.
So here are 5 tips that I always tell people when they ask me about transitioning. These tips help me through my journey and I hope they help you too!
Let me know what are your transitioning tips!
