Transitioning from textured hair to natural can be challenging, especially if you do not know what direction to head into. However, there are some hairstyles that can help growing out relaxed hair. Try these top 5 transitioning hairstyles for black women.
Cornrows are a popular style of braiding and plaiting sections of hair. Narrow strips are formed into geometric patterns that lie tight against the scalp. However, try bigger and looser braids to prevent breakage.
Flat twists can be used on nearly any length of hair. Similar to that of cornrows, flat twists incorporate two strands of hair to fasten the twists that lay against the scalp.
Buns and chignons are a simple way to add elegance to your hairstyle. This style is very versatile, but is ultimately a knot or coil of hair arranged on the side of back of the head.
Wet sets can be achieved on hair of any length, and produces a curly, neat appearance on shorter hair, or an untamed, wilder appearance on longer tresses. I did this for 3 months, my hair grew like crazy, about an inch a month.
Extensions and weaves is one of the most popular of the top 5 transitioning hairstyles for black women. Extensions can mimic natural hair and can be professionally twisted or braided to suit any style. To prevent hair breakage, try wigs instead and make sure it is not too tight!
