Musings on natural hair, single parenting, life, revelation, and random information…

I love natural hair videos! No, this blog is not only about natural hair! LOL! It's all about inspiration and information. So for the chicas who are transitioning from relaxed to natural, I wanted to show you this video to let you know that you do not have to do the big chop. Laila's video (above) can be seen on YouTube under her vlog name fusionofcultures. She transitioned for 24 months! She also has some really good tips on transitioning so check out her channel. As a side note, I didn't even know about this song by India Arie! It was perfect for this video. At any rate, I've been doing a little research on transition styles, and so far I've found the following to be the best no-heat styles:
Twist and curl roller sets
Bantu knot outs
Remember, keep your hair well moisturized and conditioned. Get your ends trimmed regularly, and be sure to style gently. The hair is the most vulnerable during the transition process, and you can easily snap off your ends if you're not careful. Also, keep a good attitude about your hair texture. Have fun with your transition. A good attitude is critical to your success. You are learning your hair, and it may seem difficult at first, but once your hair grows healthy and strong, you will love it! So hang in there!
