I had transitioning on my mind for almost a year before I finally took the plunge and decided to go for it. It’s no joke this transitioning thing, especially if you’ve been a member of the creamy crack crew for a good 11 years- in that time you can go through secondary school, college and even scoop yourself a juicy degree!
Anyway there’s no better way to come to terms with your transitioning fears than to talk to someone who has been there, done that, and now makes natural look hella hella sexy!
I turned to my fave UK transitioner Laila from Fusion of Cultures for some much needed home truths. Before you hear what she had to say about my moans and diva complaints, let me just give you a profile raincheck on Laila herself…
ArmPitLength when hair is stretched
Before starting her hair journey Laila had ArmPitLength relaxed hair. She then took the plunge and transitioned for 2 years and reached MidBackLength. She has now been natural for 8 months [soon to be 9 wohoo!] and has a majorly yummy head of natural hair worth drooling over.
Where to find her
Here are some transitioning pictures as well as Laila in her natural glory. Stay tuned for our mini agony aunt session which follows in part 2 after this post!
