Back in 2008 when I first started my natural journey, I had no clue whether or not I was going to big chop or just ride things out with a long transition. I was not even sure I even knew what transitioning meant logistically. How would I care for my hair? What would it look like? Everything was a confusing blur.
Some women are a little better than me at making decisions, they know that they absolutely do not want to big chop and transitioning long term is the only way to go for them. There was only one problem with doing that back then, though there were techniques like long term protective styling, there were not a lot of transitioning systems or products geared specifically towards helping the ‘non big chopper’ in her journey.
Today things are a little different, companies are starting to recognize that a woman might actually just want to keep her hair while she transitions and get this, she might just want to wear her hair straight using heat. We know heat gets a bad rap but we have countless examples of women vocal and non vocal who use heat regularly in their regimen without any pain or long term damage. The formula is simple, stretch your heat sessions like you used to stretch your relaxer and use great products.
Goin Natural Morargan Gold Straight transition is trying to bridge the gap in the transitioning market with products like their Thermic Blend Solution. This is a great option for women going through the transitioning process and want to do it long term with the option of rocking straight hair. The Goin’ Natural company takes this option very seriously and introduces their product expertly below:
Through extensive research of the transitioning process for women desiring to be natural, we are excited to introduce Goin’ Natural Morargan Gold™ STRAIGHT TRANSITION Thermic Blend Solution,” said Vicelia Tinde, Vice President of Sales, Asili Beauty Products. “Our powerful fusion of aminokeratins, which comprises our Thermic Blend Solution, works synergistically to provide the straight, natural look you desire without permanently altering the state of your hair.” Goin’ Natural Morargan Gold™ STRAIGHT TRANSITION Thermic Blend Solution empowers women to transition from relaxer to natural without the – Big Chop!
