How to transition from relaxed hair to natural hair


I know there are a gazillion posts out there on how to transition from relaxed hair to natural hair but permit me to stuff the Internet with just one more.

In my previous post I shared why I decided to go natural with my hair, you can read about it here.

I began chronicling my natural hair journey because someone somewhere might be thinking of making this switch but might be in need of a little inspiration and a guide as well.

So today I’ll be sharing with you how to transition from relaxed hair to natural hair.

In order to go from relaxed to natural hair, you have two options: Transitioning or The Big Chop. Which one you choose is entirely up to you.

It’s all about what makes  you feel comfortable. Each method has its own pros and cons.

1. The big chop
This method involves,  cutting off your hair to get rid of the weakened ends. More like just making a fresh start.
Most people don’t really like to go for the big chop because well, like you know not everyone can “slay” with a low-cut.How to transition from relaxed hair to natural hair

2 Transitioning.
This process involves, letting the natural hair outgrow the relaxed one while trimming off the relaxed hair every once in a while.
This was the option I went with because I wasn’t so confident about doing the big chop.

The problem with transitioning from relaxed hair to  natural hair is the de-tangling process, it can be a task.

But, Applying the right products can make that really easy .

in my next post I’ll be  sharing with you some of the products you can apply to make managing your natural hair a lot  easier.
