Let them know that they can transition and I'm sure you are aware of the basics (I didn't do an immediate BC but I can give a general definition of what it means to someone
vs what transitioning is) and advise them to jump online and do their research (youtube, NC, Curly NIkki,etc) for more detailed info because I can bet that anyone who is GENUINELY interested in eventually making the leap to natural vs just yapping your ear off may initially be leery of the idea of cutting off their hair but will come around and invest the time as well as energy into researching more into learning about the process and would appreciate ANY info that you give them!
Thanks. Congrats on being completely natural
