Transitioning can feel like an unnecessary burden. But, there are benefits to doing it with long and short hair.
Short Hair Means Easier Detangling
Longer lengths with curly hair causes the strands to become much more susceptible to tangling and single strand knots. Especially since the longer your hair the older the strands are due to natural wear, which can cause breakage, as well as the bulk end of the strands to become finer than the density closer to the root area which is commonly known as ‘feathering’. Your strands are stronger in numbers so as the ends of your hair feather naturally with length, this is the reason why tangling, single strand knots and split ends happen more frequently in this area.
