Us

Making the decision to transition your hair from relaxed to natural requires a commitment. Out goes your lazy-day routine and in come the new styles and methods required as new growth replaces straight strands. But just because handling multiple textures at once might mean more time each morning, it doesn't mean you're boxed in when it comes to styles. There are countless looks to try that not only preserve new growth, but make you feel fabulous during the in-between phase. 

Ahead, we've rounded up some of our favourite protective styles to try when you're transitioning to natural hair.
