Going natural isn’t always the easiest decision to make. I have many clients that suffer from extensive damage caused by relaxers, but refuse to give them up. For many women, there is a strong psychological and emotional connection to relaxers.
It took me years of extensive damage leading to doctor visits and thousands of wasted dollars before I could wrap my mind around going relaxer free. When I finally decided to transition, I wore extensions for six months and then I cut off my ends.
Now I had a new problem, learning to manage my new head of super coily, short, dry hair. I didn’t realize how huge of a physical transition going natural would be; now managing my hair had become my new challenge.
This isn’t an all inclusive list, but following these tips can definitely help alleviate some frustration when going natural.
