Congratulations, you’ve decided to let your hair grow out! While you may be ready to put down the relaxer, you may not be ready for the “big chop” either. If you’re going natural but don’t know where to begin, transitioning is the way to go.

It’s important that before you cut off your processed ends that you are comfortable with your hair look and length. If you aren’t you, will likely end up chemically processing your hair again and reverse your progress.
