Transitioning Hairstyles for Job Interviews

issamargissamarg Registered Users Posts: 2 Curl Neophyte
For whatever reason I decided to transition back to my natural hair a few months ago while searching for a new job. My hair has a loooooooooong way to go before it will look healthy again so I'm in desperate need of any and all professional looking hairstyles (or life-changing hair products) for transitioning hair while I interview for jobs!

A bit about my hair:
- about shoulder length when curly
- very high density
- normal-high porosity
- former 3b-3c type, now more like 3b with some 3a curls from heat & color damage
- started straightening & relaxing over a decade ago with the past 8 years being continuous.

Any tips, styles, etc. are appreciated! Thanks!

    Congrats on transitioning and I hope you find a wonderful job quickly. 
    I would do some deep conditioning treatments and also use a leave-in conditioner to try to pump some life back into your curls. 
    As for styles, would a loose bun be appropriate?

    I was always told I had to put my big curly hair back for interviews. I hated the way it looked and when I finally said to myself I'm leaving my hair out and curly...I got the job! Maybe scary but be proud of your curls!  Good luck.

    Thank you both for your advice! My hair isn't long enough to stay in a bun, but a hair mask would definitely help. I have an interview next week for a company that's kind of corporate, but thankfully it's not supposed to be humid or windy that day so we'll see how this goes!
