That's a great point, mcheryce. I agree that transitioning is a more accurate term. However, I think once someone has the intention
of no longer relaxing their hair and going natural, they can call themselves natural if they'd like.
Oy, texturizer... (Grade school flashbackkkk.) I agree that is not
natural. At all. Plus the hair gets all porous and angry. lol ...My scalp itches just thinking about it.
If anything i think we should cut transitioning-girl-who-calls-herself-natural some slack. Her damaged relaxed hair is gonna look funky until she cuts it off – and then she has to learn how to work with her real texture! We know what really looks good, ladies. And it ain't the texturized stuff.
