Transitioning To Natural Hair

Jeyinti Hairstyles

In the Summer of 2010 I decided to chop off my hair, because I needed a change, (after 5 years of weave extensions!). I went for a sleek short hairstyle, which I was totally in love with!

I felt so free…until winter 2014 arrived. Not only was I fed up of maintaining my short hairstyle, but I REALLY REALLY missed my longer hair. And the only way for me to get my long hair back was to stop chemically straightening my hair and let it grow out(naturally). A decision which was pretty hard for me to make, since I was used to relaxers for many many years.

So I made up my mind and ever since February 2014 I’ve been transitioning from chemically processed hair to natural hair while sporting protective hairstyles like weaves and braids. And every now and then I let my own hair out to measure my length and get use to its natural state. I have to say that in the beginning I didn’t know how to deal with this whole transition, but 1 year and 9 months later I’m HAPPY about my decision!

Here are some snaps of me and my natural (afro kinky curly) hairstyle I took this fall(September 2015)

Are you transitioning? And if so, how are you dealing with the process?
Let me know! Xo, Jey.

  1. Your curls are lovely! After wreaking my hair with weaves, braids et all, I went natural about 2 yrs ago and it was going well when I left my hair well alone but the moment I did cornrows(not tightly), my hairline worsened again…it got better this summer and coz I love my cornrows, I erm did the style again and in 2 wks my hairline was gone so I’m growing it out again and leaving my hair well alone, its frustrating coz Afro hair left out is a lot of maintenance…

    1. Thank you so much. I know what you mean. That’s why I stopped doing cornrows and weaving for a while. I realized that my hair grows faster and healthier with regular braids. You should definitely try it out…and sometimes let your hair out and leave it in its natural state. X
