I get questions all the time about my natural hair and my decision to go
natural two years ago. This week I have gotten more than usual. One
question that many Brown Queens
have asked is "how did I transition?". Well I definitely was not brave
enough for "The Big Chop" or a really low cut rather. I actually
transitioned for a one year and a half and cut my hair a little as I
went along. This allowed me to stay close to my relaxed length as I
transitioned. I did all sort of styles that fused the relaxed hair with
the new relaxer free hair. I was very careful to not use too much heat
or wear styles that would stress my hair and cause breakage where the
new growth and relaxed hair met. This particular point of your hair
strands is very weak and prone to breakage. Although I did not do "The
Big Chop", I've seen some Brown Queens that have rocked the low hair cut very well. One is a friend of mine who just recently cut her hair and looks gorgeous. You go Queens!
This photo of Solange is stunning!!!
