There are plenty of options for you to explore while transitioning. I personally went to my stylist every two weeks and she helped me through my transition, but not everyone does that :). Here are a few options:
Air-Drying your hair – a quick and easy way to retain moisture and elasticity in the hair, as well as blend new growth.
Blow-Drying/Flat Ironing – This is what I did. My stylist blow dried my hair and flat ironed it. This helped smooth new growth. This is a Great option for those who want to transition without looking like they are “transitioning”
Braid outs and twist outs– this involves braiding, twisting, or Bantu knotting the hair. A great way to have a soft, textured look.
Setting you hair (Roller setting, rod setting, etc.) – This is a great way to blend the two textures of your hair while transitioning. I wore my hair like in rod sets several times through my transition. This way is a bit more time-consuming but one of the healthiest ways to transition
Extensions and Weaves – I know of many transitioners who wear weaves to help aid in their tranitioning process.
Going to your Stylist – many stylists will help you transition with the use of healthy hair products, treatments and techniques.
I hope this will give you a brief overview of your options for transitioning! More info to come 😉 Happy Monday Chicas!!! How was your weekend? Are you transitioning or did you big chop? What are your experiences? Weigh in!!!!
