‘Transitioning’ is one of those natural hair buzzwords a la ‘deep conditioning’ (saturating your hair in conditioner and/or oils and using heat to encourage absorption into your hair), ‘pre-poo’ (pre-shampoo oil treatment), and ‘dusting’ (trimming your ends). If you’re new to the community the lingo can often times be confusing but don’t worry we’re here to decode it for you!

If you’ve made the decision to go natural after chemically processing (with relaxers or texturisers) or after heat damage, you have two choices:

If you’re new to the natural hair community, protective styling involves putting your hair into a style that involves tucking your ends away from the atmosphere to protect them from damage whilst your hair grows. The premise is that if the ends of your hair don’t break and your hair continues to grow, then you will achieve longer hair. I hear the phrase from a lot of people that they like to ‘put their hair away’ this usually translates as either purely protective styling (wearing their own hair in buns, twist and up-do’s) and for others this means putting on a wig or weave for a little while. For those who prefer the latter, there can be a tendency to neglect your hair while it’s “away”. So make sure you remember these tips to ensure you reach your hair goals.
