Transitioning 101 | Styles and Trials
When I started transitioning, I did my research. Most ladies advised styles the disguised or blended the relaxed hair with the new growth! I opted, instead to do protective styles because I'm still not comfortable wearing my hair out at work. I wore buns for the most part, then switched to kinky twists.
Recently, I rediscovered threaded styling and single braids. Now that my hair is longer (my new growth at the nape stretches to APL - just), I want to try other styles. The initial styles that others recommended were braid outs, twist outs and straw sets. I still don't quite see myself wearing these to work but I am more open to trying them out on the weekends and my days off!
So far, my braid outs still aren't quite there yet. I want to give a twist out a go this week, but I'm wearing the medium-sized twist I put in on Tuesday for a while first!
If you're currently transitioning, what styles have you tried out?

Your hair is so beautiful. Were you born with hair like that or was it something you did? I would love know how you got your hair like that...

Hi, hon! Thank you so much! I just finished growing out my natural hair after years of relaxing it. My hair had been shoulder length or shorter for most of my life. I started a healthy hair journey 4 yrs ago and grew it to hip length in that time.
