These are just a few of the styling options available for transitioning hair. Stand by for our 2nd installment of this series. During our transition, we stayed true to our sense of style. That's what made our long term transitioning easy. While T enjoyed straight styles, I had a blast playing with different textured styling. We both "took breaks" with braided extensions whenever we were too busy to manage the two differing textures. If you are more skilled than I am at braiding, then you will have that much more style options. However, keeping low manipulation styling in mind....try to make your style last at least 1 week. Low manipulation styling enabled me to retain length.

The more I trimmed my transitioning hair, the easier it was to manipulate without tangles at the ends. 

Once I found the right moisturizing product that satisfied BOTH textures, styling without breakage was easy.

Some days were difficult with the two extremely opposite textures, but I found a staple "go to" texture that ensured NO bad hair days were in sight.

What is your "go to" hair styling? Transitioning, Natural, Relaxed
