This story, and others like it, for that matter, is a hard one for me to tell. Namely because it involves divulging personal feelings surrounding people who've left a few scars emotionally, as I am the type of woman who has never wanted to give these types of people the time of day. However, in my healing process, I have found it necessary to call attention to these things in an effort to help women find (and keep) their own voice.
Transitioning from relaxed to natural hair is simply the process by which a person goes from a chemically altered or a relaxed hair texture, often straight, to the hair texture that they were born with, often called kinky in reference to hair that is not. The experience can be a scary one, especially if you are not familiar with your hair’s natural texture. To transition is just what it sounds like, to change. Not only will you change your hair, but your attitude regarding it and you as well.
