Which Is Best: Slow Transition To Natural, Or The Big Chop?
Latest posts by Dianne Austin (see all)
Going through the transition process to 100% natural hair after having a relaxer is not as easy as it seems.
For many of us, there is real emotion tied to our hair. The step-by-step process of going form relaxed to natural hair can be frustrating for many.
Should you just do the big chop and start fresh? Is gradually cutting off the relaxed ends a better option? The reality is, you have to make the decision that makes your feel the most comfortable.
I’m someone who hasn’t been able to wean myself over to natural hair quickly. I don’t think that I look good with super short hair at all!
My sister on the other hand went natural years ago and she was perfectly fine with the BC – and she rocked it! She also has the right face for a TWA, teeny, weeny, afro.
The bottom line, do what’s ultimately best for you. Like the popular Nike phrase states – Just do it.
Welcome to the natural side!
