Protective Styles for Transitioning to Natural Hair
Natural hair styles to help you transition from relaxed to natural. Characteristics of #ProtectiveStyles: they keep ends tucked away, do not require direct heat and often double as low-manipulation styles. On this board you'll find: senagalese twists, Havanna twists, sew-in hair extensions, goddess braids, halo braid, chunky flat twists, up-dos galore & more!
How fast does hair grow? My last relaxer was 2 yrs ago and my natural hair is now longer than my 12 inch hair extensions! 1/2 inch per month (6 inches per year) is about average for hair growth, FYI. Learn more about my products and hair care regimen by clicking.
My mom, 15 months post relaxer, this Summer (now 18 months post). Before going natural, we never saw her hair grow past her shoulders. Now it's even longer than what you see here. Her transitioning go-to style was a roller set. It helped her get through the "thick roots" stage.
