Good morning bosses and boss chics! I have finally reached my one year anniversary for my transition to natural hair! It seems like it took me forever but I can’t believe I did it. There is no way you could’ve told the old me who LOVES a silk wrap that my hair would be one year into natural by now lol.
The good thing about it is that I’ve realized I can do much more with natural hair than I could with relaxed. My hair is much thicker and stronger, which ironically makes it more manageable as well. I’ve found many ways to pin it up or wear it curly. Throughout my transition, I’ve kept you guys posted with different blows showing the ways I’ve worn my hair. My favorite is always when it’s full of volume and curls 🙂
Majority of the styles I’ve worn have been created using bantu knots or having one of my friends do my hair in a twist set. I don’t have much relaxer left in my hair and I’m thinking of how I want to change up my look as we speak. I wouldn’t mind going for a cut or getting color. However, I know color won’t show up too well without bleach, and I don’t think bleach is a route I want to take. On the flip side, I’ve thought about getting a sew in just to switch things up… I’ve always wanted to go the bright red that Rihanna had previously. I guess we’ll see how it works out. In the meantime, I’ll be experimenting with fishtail and goddess braids soon.
Check out some of my favorite natural styles that I’ve tried below. Are you natural or in the process of transitioning? If so feel free to leave your thoughts on the process below as well as any tips you’d like to share. Going natural is definitely a process that takes some getting used to, but I think it’s well worth it. Your hair is one of the things that can be used to express yourself, and going natural is a wonderful statement to make.
