...that's the question I had someone ask. She said she intended to go natural but was weary of cutting off her hair.
A big chop, or low cut as we commonly call it around here is not necessary. If you feel you do not look good with short hair, learn to manage your two textures and cut off relaxed ends gradually. The way you transition is a personal decision and should be one you feel comfortable with. When transitioning over whatever period of time it is important to know that the new growth needs to be cared for to avoid breakage at the line of demarcation.
Do you have any tips for transitioning? Please do share!
