(Tapered) transitioning hairstyles ideas?

TakniiTaknii Registered Users Posts: 27 Curl Neophyte
I'm 16 and long story short, my hair is heat damaged. I want to transition and make my new growth healthy. I have type 4 hair, mostly 4a, some 4b and 4c (I was natural before). But right now, my hair is tapered (rly short in the back and on the sides) and the top of my hair is 4-5 inches when fully pressed. Ideas on some transitioning styles? Or ways to style without heat?

    Try searching "transitioning hairstyles for short hair" on google. There's actually quite a lot of inspiration out there, because a lot of people have been there.

    There's always going to be an awkward growing out phase, unfortunately. But it's over with eventually, and then you have the hair you want.
