Chances are if you are not sure and you approach it with a pessimistic attitude, all you will be able to see is negatives which will most likely cause you to backpedal and totally fall off the wagon.
Going natural is a personal choice especially since you will be the one working with your hair. Big Chop (BC) – Cutting off all relaxed hair immediately and starting fresh with only natural hair.  This method allows you to use products for one type of hair (natural) and most women start with the TWA or Teeny Weeny Afro. Understandably, this may be a daunting prospect if you have never worn your hair cropped before but many ladies have described the experience as freeing so if you are brave and impulsive, this is the path for you.
Long Term Transitioning – Allowing the relaxed hair to grow out for a while before cutting the relaxed ends off. You have the option of putting your hair away while you allow it to grow with wigs, weaves and braids.


You will find that the best styles to use for this transition will be curly styles that blend both your natural and your relaxed texture. Side note:  I am not trying to discourage anyone from wearing wigs, weaves or braids but many women who do wear them when they first go natural find themselves stuck and dependent on them as they have not familiarized themselves with their own hair. Most claiming how hard it is are individuals who haven’t tried it or did not have the right resources to make it a successful transition. It is a big step but a positive one and as I have shared in previous posts like 6 Tips For Older Women Considering Going Natural. Here, you will be left with two textures to work with (relaxed and natural) for the duration of the transition.
These are viable options but remember that going natural means learning your natural texture so it actually helps to eliminate the wigs, weaves and braids to learn more about your hair texture and what it responds to.


I would suggest learning your hair by working with it on a day-to-day basis whether you BC or transition.
The key is knowing this is what you really want to do and seeing it as a positive step in your life.
No, I am not trying to scare you, I am just getting you prepared for a journey that is so worth the effort and time you will need to put into it. Once you know what your hair’s needs and how to work with it then go ahead and wear wigs, weaves and braids as a style option.
