Maybe you’ve seen a lot of your friends who are natural, and you truly admire it. Maybe you were once natural and you miss it. Or maybe this is something you want to explore for the first time. Either way, you will need to be prepared mentally.
The journey, though amazing and joyous, is not a bed of roses. One has to be prepared mentally for all the ups and downs that comes along with it. For some it may at first seem as something that is very hard to deal with (especially compared to chemically processed hair). I am in no way trying to stir anyone away, but am simply highlighting that, tis journey takes commitment, as does any other life changing commitments. You’ll need to be committed to nurturing, loving and spending time/special care with your hair when it needs it. Once you’ve got into the mindset that it may require more than just a wet your hair and go, then you can proceed to decide if this is really right for you.
The biggest step in this, is to educate yourself. Preparing your mind is all about teaching yourself what this natural journey offers, read tutorials and watch videos. Adjust within yourself, will you be able to do that? If not now, don’t rush into, as a joy rushed into is a pain in the end. More transitioning tips will come soon.
Stay Blessed and Afroniquely You!
