Welcome to part two of our month-long “The Great Growout” series, where we break down every aspect of growing out your relaxer. This week is all about finding styles that suit your “transitional hair” (ie, the half-natural, half-relaxed situation that’s been stressing you out for a good month). Styling dual-textured hair is tricky; straight styles never get sleek enough, and curly ones never look uniform. Here, natural hair specialist Nedjetti Harvey of Bloomfield, New Jersey’s Hair By Nedjetti Salon gives us fabulous options for styling transitional hair, as well as natural ‘dos to try after you’ve chopped off your relaxed ends. Check out our gallery of chic styles. For more info on natural hairstyles and the Hair by Nedjetti Salon, click on, or check out Nedjetti’s Natural Hairstyling DVD ($24.99).
