Are You Afraid To Go All Natural In Public? You Shouldn't Be!

Are You Afraid to Go Natural in Public? You Shouldn't Be!

Embracing your natural hair texture is a bold and beautiful decision, one that celebrates your unique identity and natural beauty. Yet, many of us still feel hesitant to showcase our natural curls and coils in public. It's time to let go of that fear and step confidently into the world with your natural hair. Here’s why you shouldn’t be afraid and how to transition smoothly from relaxed to natural hair, with a comprehensive plan to support you every step of the way.

Why Go Natural?

Going natural is not just a hair decision—it's a lifestyle choice that promotes healthier hair and self-acceptance. By embracing your natural texture, you reduce the risk of damage caused by harsh chemicals in relaxers and open up a world of styling possibilities that highlight the unique beauty of your curls.

Transitioning from Relaxed to Natural Hair

The journey from relaxed to natural hair can be daunting, but with the right plan and products, you can navigate this transformation with confidence.

Month 1-3: Preparation and Initial Transition


1. Set Your Mindset: Embrace the journey and understand that patience is key. Your hair won't change overnight, but the results will be worth it.
2. Trim Your Ends: Start by trimming off the most damaged parts of your hair. This can be a significant portion if you’ve been relaxing for a long time.
3. Introduce Moisturizing Products: Begin using sulfate-free shampoos and deep conditioners specifically formulated for curly hair. Products like a Moroccan Argan Oil + Aloe Juice Shampoo and Conditioner are great choices.

Suggested Styles: Bantu knots, twist-outs, and braid-outs. These styles blend your natural texture with relaxed ends, making the transition smoother.

Month 4-6: Embracing New Growth


1. Protective Styling: Incorporate protective styles such as box braids, cornrows, or wigs. These styles protect your new growth and minimize manipulation.
2. Moisture and Protein Balance: Alternate between moisturizing and protein treatments to keep your hair strong and hydrated. Try products like a Keratin + Vitamin E + Aloe Mask suited for chemically damaged hair and is reconstructive for added strength.
3. Gradual Trims: Continue to trim your ends every 6-8 weeks to gradually remove the relaxed hair.

Suggested Styles: Wigs, crochet braids, and flat twists. These styles help protect your hair while allowing it to grow.

Month 7-12: Fully Natural and Fabulous


1. Big Chop: By the 12-month mark, you might be ready for the big chop, cutting off any remaining relaxed ends to fully embrace your natural texture.
2. Deep Conditioning Routine: Establish a weekly deep conditioning routine using products that Restore + Revive with Keratin, Jojoba and Vanilla Extracts for deep treatment and helps to prevent damage.
3. Experiment with Styling: Now that you’re fully natural, explore styles that work best for your texture. Finger coils, wash-and-gos, and twist-outs are great starting points.

Suggested Styles: Wash-and-go, twist-outs, finger coils. These styles highlight your natural texture and are relatively easy to maintain.

Hair Care Tips for Type 3 to Type 4 Hair Textures

1. Hydration is Key: Keep your curls hydrated with water-based leave-ins and moisturizers. Type 3 and 4 hair tends to be dry, so incorporating products like a Desert Botanical CoWash with Rice Protein and Fenugreek can be beneficial.
2. Seal in Moisture: Use oils like jojoba, or coconut, or olive oil to seal in moisture after applying your leave-in conditioner.
3. Gentle Detangling: Detangle your hair when it’s wet and saturated with conditioner to minimize breakage. Use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers.
4. Protect at Night: Use a satin or silk bonnet or pillowcase to reduce friction and protect your hair while you sleep.


Going natural is a journey of self-love and discovery. By following this comprehensive plan and embracing the right products and styles for your hair type, you’ll not only conquer your fear of going natural in public but also inspire others to do the same. Celebrate your natural beauty and wear your hair with pride—because you shouldn't be afraid to go natural. You should be excited!
