Tips to Go From Relaxed to Natural Hair

There are two ways to go from relaxed hair to natural hair:  Transitioning or Big Chop.  You can start your journey by cutting off all of your relaxed hair or gradually trimming your processed ends to allow the new hair grow out.  If you don’t like short hair and need time to learn your hair type you can choose transitioning while if you are eager for natural hair and  like the consistent hair texture, big chop would be more suitable.
