Ok ladies, as you all know I AM SO IN LOVE WITH NATURAL HAIR and am currently transitioning! (12 weeks and 2 days, as of right now!) Big%20smile

Anyhoo, what I want to do with this thread is to have us post all of the hairstyles that we can wear while transitioning AND pictures of all natural hairstyles as well. This way we're covered during our journeys when we get frustrated and don't know what to do with our hair and ready to style once we're completely natural! (w00t! I can't wait!).  I did a search here and while I saw threads requesting assistance in this regard, I didn't see one big thread with all of this compiled...if I overlooked it, please forgive me!

I'll start!!! Big%20smile I was lurking over on Nappturality.com and found this AWESOME thread with 199 transitioning styles. Here ya go ladies, 199 styles compliments of Nappturality member twistedroots. I have created a natural hair "guide" for myself by copying and pasting all the things I've learned into a Word document, but realized that this should be posted here!

Also, here is a link to Essence's hair gallery.

-- It includes some great styles! There are individual galleries that show styles for natural hair, braids, locs, fros, you name it. I had initially planned to list each one separately, but then realized there are some natural hairstyles embedded in other galleries like the "Party Styles" so please look through them all for GREAT styling ideas!



Ok, ladies...your turn! Let's see those hairstyles! Please share pictures/ideas that you've found, pics of yourself or those of your friends or ideas that you created on your own! REMEMBER, you don't have to post actual pictures. You can share written ideas, like with the 199 above by twistedroots.

I can't wait to see all the ideas and pics and I hope that this is helpful! Hug

Great idea, thanks for the initiative.

I usually wear my hair in a knot at the back of my head, making a ponytail in the scrape of my neck (very low) and then twisting the hair and secure it. When my hair was shorter, I braided the hair at the back and then covered it with the front hair. that way it was easier to take care of and also it was a protective style for the har as I didn't need to combit during the week.

Hey

I'm new to this site and would love to join in the challenge. The last time I hhad a perm in my hair was back in June 2008. I've since just wash & set my hair. I've also started to use the growth aut oil hair to help with my hair growth I'm thinking of using the other products that listed on the site as well. I'm changing my whole way of thinking and I want my hair healthy, long & natural. Will send pictures soon - right now hair is just touching the shoulders, its thick. I'm taking fish oil & botin 1000mg tablets. You can check out the gro-aut hair growth oil - www.myfasthairgrowth.com

This is not a challenge. Instead it is a compilation of hairstyles that can be worn during transition and once we are fully natural.  I hope that I'm incorrect...but with this being your initial post I can't help but feel that maybe this is just an attempt to advertise.  However, I do reserve the right to be wrong and if I sincerely apologize and ask for your forgiveness.

I wish you all the best with your transition and I hope that the hairstyles posted  here (and those that will follow) are very helpful for during your journey!! Smile

ETA: Forgot to say, WELCOME TO BH LADIES! Hug
