Cute Natural Hairstyles To Rock When Transitioning

There are two major paths to take going natural: The Big Chop (BC) or Long-Term Transitioning. The BC is merely cutting off all relaxed or permed hair and starting fresh and the Long-Term Transitioning is growing out your natural hair and chopping off the relaxed ends slowly over time. This is the option to take if you don’t want to sacrifice your hair’s length.  Long-term transitioning can be a wonderful journey and can last as long as you choose. 

How New Naturals Can Save Money On Protective Styling

Common transitioning styles are buns, braid outs, roller sets, sew-ins, or rocking your hair straight but those styles can become old quickly, and some can create more damage than good. When you find yourself in a long-transitioning rut and eager to hold on longer to those relaxed ends, we’ve got a few ideas and styles that will get you through the long haul and all are super protective for this upcoming fall and winter.

Being a natural hair newbie can be challenging especially if you are new to our terms.

What Is Hair Porosity?

Pre-pooing your hair before washing makes hair easier to detangle but it also keep hair moisturized as shampooing (especially with a clarifying shampoo) can strip it of the necessary oils it needs. Despite it sounding like just dumping a bunch of oil or a conditioning treatment on your hair, there is a right and a wrong way to do this so let's dive in and define and explain what to do.
