Also, I’ve just gotten to the point where I know what to do with my hair, and I’ve been natural for 3 years, so it’s definitely a process.

Good for you for encouraging her!
It can be really daunting to “go natural,” so you may have to be really supportive of her while she adjusts. I know I’m making it sound like a big deal, but to her it probably is =)
Does she know already that she wants to transition to her natural texture, or are you still trying to convince her?
If it’s the latter, I have a couple of websites she can look at. That’s what I did in the beginning, and the internet has a ton of information about natural hair.
For pictures and inspiration, http://fuckyeahnaturalhair.tumblr.com is great. Lots of pictures.
For all the information she’ll ever need, have her sign up and go through the forums at nappturality.com. That’s where I got most of my info.
She can also just google “natural hair” =)
Don’t forget to tell her how sexy you think natural hair is! Most Black women ruin their hair with chemicals because they’re constantly told that their hair is ugly and they need to “fix” it, so make sure you negate that as much as possible.
good luck!
