Transitioning Styles that WORK!


Styling can be such a struggle when dealing with two textures of hair. Your relaxed ends can prevent a beautiful style from turning out well. While transitioning, I struggled a lot with my twist outs but my braid outs always comes out perfect.  However, now that I am natural, my twists outs come out nice and I am still working on my braid outs.

What styles work well while Transitioning?

Cornrows Braid Out


Roll N Tuck

Braid Out

Bantu Knot Out

Flat Twist Out

Some other styles that work are roller sets, buns, and using extensions. While transitioning, I never used extensions because I didn't want to deal with my edges getting damaged and breaking.
