When you hear someone say they are transitioning,that means they are going natural. The hair closest to the scalp is natural but their ends are relaxed/permed. Not everyone can just lop off all their hair & wear a short fro. Some need to take their natural journey in baby steps. Maybe cut off an inch of permed hair every two weeks.
If you have more permed hair than natural new growth I suggest a blow out. Just make sure to get a deep conditioning treatment every 2 weeks. A blow out should last about 2 weeks. I would not put too much heat on the hair in between your bi weekly salon visit.
