So tried my first transitioning styles & as expected it didn't look as expected. Frankly, I scared myself. While I know my perm will soon be gone, not too sure I can find my go to natural style. I'm not liking the look right now.
have you tried scarves. ( used like a headband)it is what has saved me from cutting it all off. it kind of hides the short pieces and the mess. im not transitioning, but growing out, but i think it would help you too.
