Transitioning to Natural Hair
Here are a few ways to take your relaxed hair to natural. Please keep in mind you should get your ends clipped slightly every hair do.
Flat Twist: almost same as cornrows, just done with two strands instead of three.
Twist Out: braiding or twisting your hair using a setting lotion or gel, you can create a wavy/crinkle look that minimizes the different textures of your hair. You can wear your hair in twists or braids for a while, then take out to wear the twist out look. This style is too cute !
Straw Set: This is a great one if you want to keep your relaxed hair.
Sisterlocks and Braids: these both can be started with 2inches of hair.
TWA : Just do the BIG CHOP keep it moisturized and keep it moving ! Teeny Weeny Afro’s are awesome!!!!
