There are a few styles one can play with when transitioning from relaxed hair to natural hair. There are several things that can be done to minimize breakage while still maintaining a fabulous look. It is very important to be very gentle when combing or styling transitional hair. The point where the relaxed hair and the natural hair meet can be very delicate.
Try wearing hair in braids, twists, or buns. These styles do not require a lot of manipulation while they are worn and they are appropriate for different occasions. They styles can be dressed up or down with hair accessories such as headbands, barrettes, and ribbons.
