5 tips for transitioning to natural tresses by hairdresser Charlotte Mensah
1. Go Short
Close cropped looks are fashion forward and look great. Get a beautiful short precision cut.
2. Roller Set
You’ll get a full head of curls to hide the bulkiness of the new growth.
3. Pressing or flat iron the new growth
This technique will straighten the natural roots, but you have to be careful not to apply the heat to the relaxed part of the hair shaft.
4. Braiding with hair extensions
New growth is hidden with individual braids or cornrows leaving the transition process completely invisible.
5. Sewn Weave
As your hair is cornrowed beneath hair extensions it is rested from damaging environmental factors and completely hidden making the transition undetectable.
