FROM RELAXED TO NATURAL HAIR WITH BOX BRAIDS


In June 2017, I decided to stop getting relaxers. From June 2017 to April 2018, I transitioned my hair from relaxed to natural. To do this, I kept my hair in box braids. It was the best way to transition and I do not regret it!

In April 2018, I cut off all of my relaxed hair. The feeling of cutting what remained of my permed hair was freeing. No longer did chemically straightened—yet easy to manage—hair live on my head. In the process, I fell back in love with box braids (a hairstyle staple of my tween years); so much so, I get them done every two months. It also doesn't hurt that I love the woman who does my hair!

Real talk: box braids are life. I don't mind sitting in a chair for 6+ hours to get the above look. It is so liberating to wake up and not have to worry about how I will style my hair. The braids give me so much extra time in my busy schedule. Now that I am completely natural, I plan to still get box braids...because, well...I'm still figuring out how to style my kinky coils.

Check out some pics of my transition:
