Leaving the heat now, will help you not use it when you are fully natural. Start practicing now. Transitioning is also a time to practice curly styles. Since you want it to be curly, try doing a flat twist out (or a regular twist out). You won't have to use heat to flatten and then curl, you will just have curls!
