This is it.
You have decided to take the biggest step in the life of your hair and transition from relaxed to natural locks. This is a big transition, and while many chose to chop their locks, many more chose to make the transition with their mane intact.
This can lead to many different trials, from inconsistent texture to inconsistent length. While, at times, it may feel like shaving your head would be worth it – there can be benefits to transitioning naturally.
If you are taking the long haul process, here are five hairstyles to help you embrace and love the hair you wear while waiting for your gorgeous natural texture to take root.

Like the box braid, this look can be done naturally or sewn in, giving a good style and helping to regain life to those relaxed lengths.
