There has been an epidemic of transitioners from relaxed to natural. Although this can come with challenges, it can be a successful journey. However, you must KNOW that this journey requires PATIENCE!!! If you make this decision prematurely without weighing the pros and cons according to your life style there can be regret and you might not meet your goal. It is important to know yourself, your personal habits and your purpose or goal before you begin. If you've been relaxed for many years, one of the biggest challenges you'll face, is adjusting to the ease in manageability while combing and working with your hair. This will change drastically! It requires great patience to learn your hair and how to maintain it as it transitions.
While everyone doesn't need a relaxer, there are some people that are better off not being natural. Our hair textures can be beautiful in any state IF it's properly maintained and healthy. Whether natural or relaxed, the journey to healthy hair requires PATIENCE. I highly recommend speaking with a professional stylist that can help you determine what would be the best option for you and guide you to healthy hair.
