6 Tips For Easier Transitioning

6 Tips For Easier Transitioning



Are you curious about going natural, but fear the Big Chop? Do you want to reconnect with your natural texture without losing length? Luckily, you can transition from relaxed to natural hair without cutting it all off! With a little time and patience, you can grow out your relaxed hair to reveal your natural texture. 
Here are six easy tips for transitioning naturally – without a drastic cut!

1. Be realistic

Going natural is exciting and chances are you’d love to see quick results. But the reality is that is involves a little patience. Stick to your plan for 4 months and then you’ll be seeing some results. After one year, you’ll be 100% natural beauty!

2. Get excited about a transitioning style

With your roots being very different from your ends, it will help you immensely to find some transitioning hairstyles that make you excited. Try a bantu knot out or the twist out or great in-between style. 

3. Detangle with care

Never try to detangle dry hair. Detangle when your hair is wet and supple with conditioner. Use a wide toothed comb and go slow, working from bottom to top.

4. Stick to a shampoo and conditioner schedule

Depending on your oil levels, you’ll have to cleanse your scalp every few day to every once a week or whatever fits your lifestyle. Experiment to see what works for you. After you’ve cleansed, follow-up with a deep-moisturizing conditioner or hair mask.  

5. Cool it on the heat

Instead of risking more damage to your gorgeous locks, ditch the hair dryer or flat iron and air-dry your hair instead. 

6. Trim your ends regularly

Head to your salon every 6 to 8 weeks for a regular hair trim – using shears, not scissors! Keeping your hair trimmed will minimize split ends and breakage and keep your hair looking healthier. Best if done by a professional stylist that you trust.

Good luck! While transitioning your hair from chemical relaxer to natural can seem like a long process, the results are well worth it. It will be no time before you’ll be embracing your natural hair, and wishing you’d made the switch years ago.
