- BC (Big Chop): When you cut off all the chemically treated hair, leaving Au-Natural.
- Transitioning: Growing your relaxed hair out, trimming it off as you go along.
- Short Term- I describe this as being less than 8 months post relaxer, cutting the relaxed hair off sooner rather than later.
- Long Term- I describe this as being more than 8 months post relaxer.
Make a commitment and stick to it because it will be worth it in the end. Surrounding yourself with positive aspects of going natural will be very beneficial while on this long transitioning journey.
