When I first went natural, I was scared too, and did not know what to do or how to transition. However, one hairstyle I used to transition was a roller set.
Researh Analyst mentioned pinning up your hair. With the roller set hairstyle you can pin it up and out of your way. I used to pin my hair up in the back with this style.
There are many things you can do with this hairstyle, and as your hair grows out, you will find that the style will evolve with your hair. If you like I can write a hub about the roller set, how to do it, and some tricks that I used to create the hairstyle since hubpages will not let me do it here.
My hair grew a lot with this hairstyle.
