If you’ve been considering going natural for a while now, there’s never been a better time for your curly hair to join the natural hair revolution. Embracing your natural curly hairstyles can be an empowering journey and ditching harsh chemical treatments is good for you too.

A chemical-free life is a healthy choice focused on exuding a wellness-driven lifestyle. Natural hair strengthens over time, making your lovely locks fuller, more radiant, soft as silk, and ready for endless style options as versatile as you are. Once you’ve got your natural hair regimen down, many curly-haired goddesses find that going all-natural saves time in their morning routine.

From curly hairstyles that make the road to all-natural beauty a little easier, there’s a trick for every hair type on this list.

Ease into Natural Hair Love

Big changes don’t happen overnight! There’s no need to rush the process when it comes to transitioning hairstyles. Keep your inspiration going for your new curly hairstyle by flipping through images of women over 50 that rock their curly hairstyles. It’s easy to feel like we have to change everything about our style routine overnight and get frustrated with the process. Four months is a good growth period for your hair to gain some length prior to going all-natural. So now is the perfect time to prep your hair for a natural style and allow your hair time to grow out. 

Prep Your Scalp

While you wait for your natural locks to grow out, the in-between stage is a great time to give your scalp some extra love. After all, our hair normally steals the spotlight, so why not use this opportunity to focus on your scalp care?

Type 3 hair and type 4 hair will especially benefit from a scalp care routine. The scalp stimulates hair growth and improves blood circulation to the follicles, which ultimately gives your natural hair its shape, shine, and radiance. For a simple scalp care routine, our curly hair experts recommend:

Use your scalp massager to apply scalp oil or hair growth serum. If going the DIY scalp oil route, we recommend using coconut oil! The scalp massager will massage your scalp to stimulate blood circulation.

Complete your normal wash routine. Be sure to rely on a high-quality conditioner to provide hydration to your roots and follicles. Finish your routine with a moisturizing scalp serum to lock in nutrients and protect your hair follicles. Repeat this routine 3x per week or as often as you wash your hair.

Detangle with Care

To ensure a smooth transition to natural curls, you’ll want to avoid damaging your natural hair as much as possible. This means being mindful of breakage, especially when brushing out your lovely locks. Make a habit of detangling your hair when your hair is wet. Use a wide-toothed comb and a healthy amount of leave-in conditioner to keep ends moisturized. Loosen stubborn knots with your fingers rather than yanking them apart with a comb. Start from the ends and work your way up. The end-to-root technique minimizes frizz and fraying while smoothing each strand. Never start at the scalp! This will make small tangles into impossible knots by the time you’ve worked your way to the end.
