Three years ago, this July, I started to transition to natural hair. Today, I have no relaxed hair left. I am in love with my relaxer-free hair. It looks far better than my relaxed hair ever looked. It’s so much thicker and has so much more texture and versatility. If I would have known my relaxer-free hair would have been so much better than my relaxed hair I would have transitioned long ago.
My hair is healthier than its ever been and longer and stronger. I just love it now. But my journey has not been struggle-free. I had a hard time styling my hair as my hair became more natural. I have never been much for ponytails and I never really liked the protective styles. I like wearing my hair down. These days, I mostly wear my hair in braid and curl styles. It looks the best when my mom braids it –I’m not that great at braiding. I can braid, just not good at braiding to my scalp, cornrowing or french braiding. But, in the beginning, styling my hair was a huge struggle.
So, I rounded up a few gorgeous hairstyles for you to try:
