3 Easy Styles For Transitioners

The journey to natural is a beautiful one. Whether you decide to big chop or transition you will learn so much about yourself, but will also come across many obstacles along the way. For transitioners, in particular, the biggest issue may be styling.

When you are growing out your natural roots while keeping your relaxed ends and trimming bit by bit along the way, you have to find optimal styling methods in order to blend the two textures. It can be challenging, but don’t be tempted to continually straighten your roots with heat as you will not want to damage your newly formed coils.

Instead, try one of these 3 easy styles anyone can complete and enjoy the journey until you are free of all of your relaxed ends.



1. Rod Sets

Rod sets are arguably one of the easiest styles you can complete and still slay. Whether you use perm rods or flexi rods, it’s easy to blend the two textures of your hair without the use of heat. Just make sure your hair is completely dry before taking out the rollers and you’ll be good to go!

2. Braid Outs

Contrary to popular belief, yes you can complete braid outs on relaxed hair. Taking small sections of your hair and installing braids with a perm rod on the end can give you tons of definition and the appearance of that of a fully natural gal. The natural and relaxed textures will blend well and it’s really easy to do.

3. Crown Twists

Another simple style you can do while transitioning are crown twists or even braids. This style allows your relaxed ends to be tucked away so you don’t have to deal with the combination of textures. It’s also fairly simple to complete and a style you can easily rock every day?

What’s your favorite transitioning style?
