Maybe you’ve seen a lot of your friends who are natural, and you truly admire it. Maybe you were once natural and you miss it. Or maybe this is something you want to explore for the first time. Either way, you will need to be prepared mentally.

The journey, though amazing and joyous, is not a bed of roses. One has to be prepared mentally for all the ups and downs that comes along with it. For some it may at first seem as something that is very hard to deal with (especially compared to chemically processed hair). I am in no way trying to stir anyone away, but am simply highlighting that, tis journey takes commitment, as does any other life changing commitments. You’ll need to be committed to nurturing, loving and spending time/special care with your hair when it needs it. Once you’ve got into the mindset that it may require more than just a wet your hair and go, then you can proceed to decide if this is really right for you.

The biggest step in this, is to educate yourself. Preparing your mind is all about teaching yourself what this natural journey offers, read tutorials and watch videos. Adjust within yourself, will you be able to do that? If not now, don’t rush into, as a joy rushed into is a pain in the end. More transitioning tips will come soon.

Stay Blessed and Afroniquely You!

  1. Hello,
    I just started my journey with my locs. I love them and i have never felt so free! I started them in March so i am at the beginning stages still. I sometimes feel like those around me are not pleased with my hair, but I L.O.V.E. natural hair and i have ben that way ever since i was young. I do not know how that came about b/c everyone in my family is a perm wearer. lol. Anyway, I urge anyone who is thiniking about going all naturallll to GO FOR IT! You’re going to Love it! I know you’d look and feel like the King/Queen God intending all of HIS children to be.
    Peace and Blessings,
    DOM

  3. I have been natural for 15 years. I have faded, afro, locked, loose, braided etc. Now I am on my second set of locks.

    When I reflect on preparation your mind…it is a shame that we HAVE to prepare ourselves for what is God-given, NATURAL HAIR!!! We should be thinking twice about having chemicals in our hair, and how psychologically damaging Caucasian standards are to people of color.

    I am hoping to pass on my values to my future children, because mainstream society has it backwards.

  5. I am currently wearing a texturizer (short looks by Luster) and i want to go au natural…I was wondering how long do i have to wait until i can use some of the products featured on your website?

  6. Hey..it depends on what products you are taking about. As far as deep conditioners go, you can start using those now. If it's more so the shampoo/conditioners/styling aids, I'd say wait about a month or two after your hair has grown out some and then implement the new products that way.

  7. I’m just now transitioning to natural..and NOPE it’s not easy…util I decide what to do from here I’m doing tracks (too scared of the big chop)…But relaxed hair or even tracks do not mean “Caucasian” some Black women just want a different look. Our natural faces were God given, but some wear make up. Our bare ears were God given but some get them pierced…it’s okay to want to change you style. I’m at the point where I prefer natural…but who knows I may go relaxed again one day!
    *Stay Blessed*
