5 Reasons Why Transitioning To Natural Hair Is More About A Mental Transition

TransitioningWhen I first entertained the thought of “going natural” I was highly unaware of exactly what I was about to embark on. Of course my initial goal was to let my natural texture shine through but it quickly turned into so much more.

I applaud all the naturals that have paved the way before me and returned to their natural hair for whatever reasons that were important to them during their natural hair journey. As my curls and coils started to peek through, making their way into society, I started to realize this is so much bigger than just hair.

Like every other soon to be natural who was unaware of their natural texture, I was on the edge waiting to see what texture I had that would help define me.

A head full of curls later I soon realized my beauty didn’t lie in the texture I carried on my head, but the thoughts that dictated what I thought would define who I was based on that curl pattern.

Where your thoughts go everything else will follow

I honestly thought I would become natural and that things would be all good with no changes to follow. I didn’t think there was a big deal surrounding returning to my natural hair texture but I soon learned it wouldn’t be easy.

During my natural hair journey when I would get frustrated during the transition process I had to make some changes starting with my mentality.

Transitioning definitely takes on a life of its own. I don’t regret it at all but mentally it meant maintaining a positive outlook while being open to changes and the hardships.

If you find yourself getting frustrated stop, regroup, and rethink about what it is your trying to accomplish to help you get through it.

Transitioning is as fun as YOU make it

Who wants a lackluster transitioning process? I know I didn’t which is why I soon had to keep my mind clear removing anything that was hindering me from having a fabulous transition process.

I made my transition phase fun and challenged myself to always push the envelope further and get creative. If something did not work for me I would stop and try something new.

It took some time and some effort on my part but before you knew it my transitioning became less challenging and more fun.
