So you’ve decided not to go with the big chop and you want to transition slowly. We are extremely happy to welcome you to this side of the hair journey.

You should remember though that the journey you’ve decided to take will be a little painful, very very frustrating and somewhat draining, but you should remember why you decided to start in the first place.

Deciding to transition instead of doing the big chop can be extra tedious because of the undergrowth you’ll experience, the pain in combing your hair and the little sadness you would feel trimming your hair.

In as much as it can be all these things, we gathered some 6 tips for transitioning to natural hair.
