We couldn’t help but notice that more and more Black women are unashamedly embracing the natural hair look. Even celebrities, such as Solange Knowles, are proudly displaying their God given coif.
Therefore what are the processes of this transition? Well, there are a number of them.
In the past, to go from Relaxed to Natural hair many women would “snip, snip” and cut off all of their processed hair. Thus patiently sporting short hair for the necessary duration. However more recently, women are adopting new options such as wearing wigs, weaves and extensions. Women are also choosing to use natural textured extensions, to incorporate into their hair to provide density and body.
Still – all in all – it is important to remember to regularly shampoo one’s hair, oil the scalp and massage it, as well as apply a leave-in conditioner on the hair before preparing it for weave techniques – even wigs. These steps keep the hair hydrated and scalp circulated while hibernating. Furthermore once the new style is in place, continue to massage the scalp. Finally, it is imperative to keep the hair ends clipped in between styles.
