Rocking Your Natural Hair for Special Occasions

By on July 1, 2021

More people are embracing their natural hair in many ways. People are tired of dyeing their hair, straightening, or curling it. Most women over 50 want to rock their natural hair for every occasion, and the following tips will make it easier to do that.

Consult a Hairstylist

You want to work with a professional hairstylist. Rocking your natural hair isn’t that hard. It’s natural, but if you’re going to look great for a special occasion, you’re going to have to go the extra mile. If you’re going to a wedding or retirement party, you want to make a statement. This isn’t something you can do without the help of a professional hairstylist. They’ll be able to make your natural color pop and your natural texture shine. They’ll even make sure your cut matches your facial structure.

Stick to Natural Cleansing

As much help as a hairstylist can be, you also need to worry about the way you treat your hair. Healthy natural hair depends on how you treat it. You need to pamper your hair and give it some love. One thing you could do is use natural hair shampoo and conditioner. Many commercially sold shampoos and conditioners contain questionable ingredients. Some of these ingredients can hurt your hair, mainly because it’s natural. If you want to make sure your hair shines, then you’re going to have to make the switch. Results may take some time, but with a bit of patience, you’ll see the difference.

Enlist the Stylist

If you want to stand out for this event, it might be a good idea to enlist the help of your hairstylist for a final session. Once your hair looks great, the stylist can help make your outfit look the part. Using your hair as a guide, the stylist can help ensure your outfit matches your natural hair look. You’ll be transformed into a new you, thanks to your stylist and the fact that you’re rocking your natural hair color and texture. If you’re thinking of wearing bridal headwear, make sure you mention that, and they’ll help find you something that’ll let you show your hair off, at least a little.

Watch What You Eat

What you put into your hair affects your natural hair. Everything you eat affects your hair, too. When you put wigs on or use extensions, nothing you eat affects that because it’s not your hair. Things are different now since you’re trying to rock your natural hair. If you know a special occasion is on its way, you’re going to have to start worrying about what you eat. You could talk to a dietitian to see what kind of suggestions they have for you. Most of the time, you need foods like fatty fish, dark leafy greens, milk, or eggs. All of these foods contain nutrients that promote softness, luster, and the overall fullness of your natural hair.

Work in Treatments

Every so often, it’s a good idea to try a few natural treatments to give you a chance to shine and to look divine. This is especially important for those who have a special occasion to go to soon. Many natural treatments can do wonders for your hair, from a hot oil treatment to an egg treatment. The egg treatment is pretty simple. All you have to do is apply an egg mixture into your hair when it’s still damped. Allow the egg mix to stay in your hair for at least 20 minutes. You can rinse it off after, and you’ll see great results. You’ll see luster and fullness, which should go a long way in helping you rock your natural hair.

Hopefully, these suggestions make you feel good about this upcoming day. If you want more help or tips, you should talk to your hairstylist to get additional recommendations.
