<<I accidentally found this on the net and thought to share it with you .It's probably for people that have a good amount of hair (not for very short hair :( ) .Hope it helps someone :)>>


One of the first things that you will probably want to know when you are transitioning from a perm to a relaxer is, “How can I style my hair?” Don’t worry with this list you will run of relaxer to cut off before you run out of ways to style your hair.
If you want to have substantial growth before you cut off all of your perm, then you many want to transition for six months to a year. If you want to wear a TWA (Teeny Weeny Afro) then you only will need an inch or two of new growth.
Whatever you decide here are 199 protective transitional styles to keep you in ideas from now well into your natural journey. Yep, the added benefit is that they all can be done when your hair is natural too.
I thought about including extension styles and head wraps but when I saw that you could do so much with you natural hair I said why mess with a good thing. I had fun writing this I hope you have as much fun doing the styles

    Thanks alot for writing all that out, really appreciate it. But do you mind spacing them some, they look really clumped, or my eyes can just be going bad.
    Goals:
    CBL Stretched: Reached! July '09
    Full SL stretched: Reached, then trimmed off. Dec '09
    Even, full NL unstretched

    This is verrry helpful to me. I was getting in a rut. Right now I have kinky twists in but when I take them out, I will have more to do with my hair than just cowash and bun.
