Default Transitioning Styles?!

OK, my mo said that I don't have to get a perm. However, she asked me what I was going to do to my hair and I said that I'd get a perm(I was scared she'd fuss at me if I said idk). I really need some hairstyles ASAP because I have school tomorrow. She let me do braidouts this weekend w/o knowing that it was part of transitioning. I got lots of compliments but it was kind of dry looking and poofy. Please help and quick!!

A lot of people did twists...? I transitioned as well (for about 2 years) before chopping, but I don't remember any particular "transitioning styles."

Do you have a curl thus far? (As soon as I got a curl (relatively quickly, because my hair doesn't hold relaxers well), I started doing some up/down styles that helped protect the relaxed ends while showing off the new curls.

There are also variations of braids, accessories, buns, etc to help with the creation of styles.

Hey, I know I'm late, but I say stick with the braid-outs. Just make sure you moisturize your hair well enough. Olive oil is great for moisture and shine. Also, when you're completely natural, your hair will be poofy anyway. Embrace it! But, maybe you can try a butter with an oil on top to before you do the braids to lessen the fuzziness and make your hair more compact and that way it will lay down.

I hope I helped!

make sure to use a leave in conditioner! If you plan to transition, treat your hair as if it's natural. There are tons of tutorials on braid outs/twist outs/heatless curls, so try out some of those. Also, do a lot of updos. There are basic braids and buns and more involved ones.

When I was transitioning, I found that using leave ins and moisturizing products (water based - not oils) helped a great deal. If you find that your hair is still losing moisture quickly then it can be sealed with an oil or styling product. Be mindful of the line of demarcation (where the natural hair meets the permed hair). The area is the weakest part of the hair strand and should be treated with care.
