Napturally Curly talks: 18-month transition


Napturally Curly is all natural!! And it was done without a BIG CHOP! For all transitioners, please know this is possible!

On September 5, 2011, I completed my 18-month transition, and I am proof positive that you can transition to natural hair without a big chop.

I only had an inch or two near the crown of my hair, so I snipped the remaining texturized hair on September 5, 2011 and here’s a video of the results and first natural style. Enjoy!

Thinking of transitioning? Start by reading my do’s and dont’s of transitioning and transitioning guide.

Here’s a snippet:

DO…

Learn to embrace your texture.  It’s easy to get caught up in someone else’s head, but chances are your hair isn’t like theirs.  So don’t waste your time wishing you had someone else’s crown. It will leave you disappointed and exhausted. Love what God gave you.

DON’T…

Get caught up in rules and judgments.  There are a lot of naturals who have definitions of what wearing natural hair means.  Some become anti weave, anti colored contacts, anti straight hair, and anything that is not “natural.”

Remember, this is your journey.  Find out what being natural means to you.  Don’t let other’s opinions shape your actions and beliefs about what you have to do and cannot do because you wear natural hair.  Also be careful of criticizing others just because they don’t share your journey or opinions.

I think it’s great when going natural inspires people to live healthier lives.  But it’s not cool when that turns into judging others for their choices and opinions.
