    Default Transitioners going to natural hair salons ?

    I recently called a natural salon to see what my options were as a transitioner. Seems like this particular place is more into trying to get you to start dreads or to do the big chop. I did the big chop years ago & I don't want to go that route again. I was more or less a place where I could get a shampoo, condition, hair trim and gradually let my hair grow out. I figured I could learn about products& styling info at a natural salon.

    What has your experience been? What styling options does a transitioner have at a natural salon?

    Default Re: Transitioners going to natural hair salons ?

    I did it on my own. Salons are constrained by time, often. If you want a salon, just go every 10-12 weeks for a trim until all you have is natural hair. You can transition with a twist out and a good moisturizing product like a curl milk to set it. What did you do?
    If you aren't learning, then you aren't growin.

    Default Re: Transitioners going to natural hair salons ?

    When I transitioned, I went to my regular stylist every 3 months or so for trims. When I was ready for the relaxed ends to go, it was somewhat easier for me to deal with, as I had natural hair to practice with, if that makes sense.
