Why You Should Keep Natural Hair

Have you ever felt like you see women with natural hair wherever you turn? This is very conspicuous because a well-styled natural hair has a voice of its own and can attract attention all by itself. Is natural hair a trend? Will it fizzle out like most hot trends?

You should deeply consider what it means to go natural before you take the scissors to your hair. While people will see you as being woke and in touch with your roots when you ditch the relaxer AKA the creamy crack, there are other strong reasons why you should let your hair grow in its natural state.

Finding A Stylist

How to Find the Best Stylist for Your Natural Hair

Finding A Stylist For Your Natural Hair

Getting a new stylist could feel like leaving your life in the hands of a stranger. You’ve probably labored over every last inch of hair on your head, and now you have to get into this person’s chair knowing that they could do magic and boost your hair goals, or they could burn you to the ground and have you laboring to start afresh.

You might be in need of a new stylist if you’ve recently moved to a new area, if your last stylist had done a number on your hair and heart and had you scrambling for a rebound, or if you are finally willing to surrender your DIY approach to haircare and finally get a pro to help you out.

Here are a few tips to help you along in your search of “The One”.

Why Transition To Natural Hair

Here’s Why Some People Prefer Transitioning to Doing the Big Chop

Why Transition To Natural Hair

Here’s Why Some People Prefer Transitioning to Doing the Big Chop

Transitioning is simply growing out your natural texture while retaining your relaxed ends. A big chop, on the other hand, is shaving off your relaxed hair and growing your natural hair from scratch. Transitioning allows you to ease into the natural hair lifestyle because, let’s face it, you will find that it is a major change. Most naturalistas go the transitioning route because it gives them the option of testing the waters before diving in.

You may be wondering if it wouldn’t be simpler to just cut the hair and go natural since growing natural hair is the goal, right? Well, this is not a decision to take lightly for some people, hence, their desire to grow the hair to a certain length before cutting off the relaxed ends.

Why transition?


Transitioning Will Make You Get Used to Your Natural Texture

Most women began using relaxers when they were kids, and they grew into adulthood with the only knowledge of their natural hair being the periodic relaxer touch ups they get 3-4 times a year. Transitioning allows them to get used to their texture before committing to becoming full-time naturals. If you are considering the natural hair lifestyle, a few months-worth of growth should help solidify your decision, or you could decide to go back to your relaxer ways if you think the journey is not for you.

You Learn to Style Your Natural Hair When You Transition

Those super cool YouTube styling videos will convince you to take some scissors to your hair. While those online hair inspirations are great, you may need a few trials to perfect your hair styling game and to decide which styles are perfect for your texture. Transitioning is wonderful for this trial and error phase. By the time you are fully natural, you would have learned what styles work for you.

You can Decide Which Hair Products Work for You During the Transition Phase

There are so many products in the market, and as a newbie, you might be tempted to try them all out. Be cautious, though. Read up on the active ingredients in these products and find out how they affect your hair. Transitioning allows you to learn about various products like shampoos and conditioners and all the other products out there.

With Transitioning, You Aren’t Really Starting from the Bottom

Admit it, your relaxed ends serve as a cushion. Not only do you retain new natural growth 100% BUT it cuts down the ‘growth watch’ that comes with doing the big chop. You may not really feel the need to track every inch of growth and measure gains with a ruler like most newbie naturals. You get to grow your hair out for a few months or a few years, either way, you’re cutting off your relaxed when you are satisfied with the length of your natural texture.

Natural Hair Suggestions

Natural Hair Suggestions

There have been many requests for help on developing a good, healthy hair regimen. A lot of people want to go natural but just don't know the exact things that they need to do because they may not have been natural since they were young or just never knew how to maintain it. Here is a list of 10 natural hair suggestions to help with making your customized regimen....

1.Moisturize your hair. Making sure that it is moisturized daily even if you don't have to put anything on it a particular day is really important especially in dry winter months. Using water is important. Get a spray bottle and before you go to bed or when you're able at home just mist it before you put anything else on it. After that put whatever leave in conditioner you want on it. Just make sure there is little to no alcohol in it (The fatty alcohols don't really count. They can actually be very moisturizing). Remember the ingredients are listed from the most to the least so leave it alone if it's in the first five ingredients.

What do I need to “Go Natural”?

As a newbie to going natural, whether you are just going to jump into it and do your Big Chop (BC) or you’re going to transition you will need to first consider some things.

1.Am I ready?

Please consider the implications of going natural so that you aren’t disappointed. Don’t do it for other people and please don't decide against because of other people either. Do it for yourself. If you’re out to please others, then you may not have hair at all because you’ll just be changing it every 5 seconds.
