Transition is defined as “movement, passage, or change from one position, state, stage, subject, concept, etc., to another; change: the transition from adolescence to adulthood”. It is a major part of the life cycle and we experience multiple transitions throughout a lifetime. Whether you transitioned to naturalhood during high school or are just embarking on your natural hair journey, college life in particular is a different animal. With the many changes that accompany it, it can be overwhelming but caring for your natural tresses doesn’t have to be. Transitioning from natural life in the free world to natural life in a college community can prove to be challenging and the way you navigate through this period will determine how smooth your transition is. So, since school is about to start for many of you, to help you make your on campus transition easier, consider these tips.
