Going Natural: Should You Transition Or Do The Big Chop?

In order to go from relaxed to natural hair, you have two options: Transitioning or The Big Chop. Which one you choose is entirely up to you. There is no right way or wrong way to start your journey. It doesn't matter how you get there, its all about what makes you comfortable. HOW TO GO FROM RELAXED TO NATURAL HAIR TRANSITIONINGTRANSITIONING IS THE PROCESS OF ELIMINATING CHEMICAL TREATMENTS AND ALLOWING THE HAIR TO GROW OUT WHILE GRADUALLY TRIMMING THE CHEMICALLY PROCESSED ENDS. Most people slowly trim their relaxed ends away as they grow out their relaxer; this also helps to keep breakage at bay and it gives your hair a more healthy appearance.

PROS OF TRANSITIONING:You have the time to learn about your particular hair type If you are not comfortable with short hair, then you can avoid that adjustment period, and avoid the wait of growing your hair back out.During transitioning you have the time to perfect your hair styling skills. CONS OF TRANSITIONINGThe texture of your hair will not be consistent: which means if you decide to wear your hair in a twist out or braid out style the root of your hair might be curly while your ends will be bone straight (To avoid this simply roll the ends of your hair with rods or rollers)The process of transitioning takes longer than if you just did the big chop.  Reference Reference
