I have modeled the head and the body of my character separately, and I’d like to join them. However, the number of loops in the head is signficantly higher than in the body. The only way I have found is using triangles to progressively simplify the neck topology towards the body, as shown in the image.

enter image description here

However, I am aware that non-quads are to be avoided. Is there a better retopologization approach for this use case? Thanks in advance.
