8 dos & don’ts to successfully transition to natural hair
7. Do practice being natural with kinky weaves using hair from www.heatfreehair.com (Founder Ngozi Opara) and join the movement. What is so great about this hair is that it behaves exactly like natural hair would. It curls, kinks, shrinks as your natural hair too. It’s human hair, so can be styled using heat. Solange Knowles is always seen switching up her look with different lengths and colours of kinky weaves/wigs that replicate her natural kinks. To the 2013 Met Gala she rocked a view blocking FIERCE fro that really preserved her natural look yet gave her the versatility to make a statement for the occasion.
8. If the transitioners life just gets way too much for you to deal with, DON’T be afraid to just BIG Chop. Whoever said that short hair was not cute? Seek inspiration from some of our favourite celebs that have wore their natural hair short in 2013. Chrisette Michele, Nicole Ari Parker and Lupita Nyong’o all do short so well… Of course we could not leave out how amazing Solange knowles looked when she chopped off all of her relaxed hair way back when. Can you even remember her ever having relaxed hair? No? Testament to how stunning she looks now?”
