I remember when I first decided to be natural. I trusted my friend and she asked me why I wanted to do something like that and what would I do with my hair. At the time I wasn't sure what I would do with him, but the look on his face told me he didn't approve of it and completely discouraged me from trying to be natural. It took me two years after this conversation to get on my nerves to start the transition; This time I did not ask anyone or reveal my plan to anyone.

After being natural for a few months, I continually heard things like, "Look, you can wear your hair like that, but I could never get away with it," or "It would look natural, but I don't want to wear it." an afro or locs. "There are many natural styles to suit different personalities and lifestyles. I quickly learned that natural hair is much more diverse than relaxed hair; not only can natural hair be straightened to make fun of relaxed hair, It can also be wound, twisted, curled, braided, tied and much more.

Many of my clients complained about using their natural hair for a wedding, graduation or other special celebrations, so they decide to straighten it when these occasions arise. Either they push it or they get their "last" relax because they can't go with their "diaper" hair. The first thing I say to these people is that they have to change their psychology by thinking about what is acceptable and beautiful, especially if their hair is the opposite of this. Also, there is not only one style that is acceptable when celebrating a special occasion; Be open-minded and don't be afraid to be creative. Here are some tips on how to wear your natural hair for a special occasion.

If your hair is short, the coils can be very daring and sexy and a twist can also suit the occasion.
You don't always have to wear your hair up or tied up, but if you do decide on these styles make sure your hair is long enough so you don't have to use many bobby pins; This can ruin the entire style.
Feel free to adorn your hair with hair accessories. I've even hooked up a cowrie shell earring on my twists to add a bit of flair.
Braids can be very articulate and very versatile. You can wear French hair braided into a bun, or you can make spiral braids.
Think about the occasion and where it will take place. You might want to wear your hair up if the occasion is at a windy outdoor wedding or in a funky, thick Mohawk if the occasion is a fun birthday party.
Don't try to make your natural hair do what hair does; The texture is different and can cause more frustration than anything else. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=P8UMLWiearw
There are countless natural styles that are eloquent, fun, daring and simply beautiful that can satisfy the satisfaction of any celebration. I would always suggest trying the style well in advance of the occasion so you won't stick with it if you don't like it. I would also suggest finding pictures of natural hairstyles and taking them to your stylist or practicing them ahead of time so that you feel comfortable when the time comes (although the next time you do it may not look exactly the same - that's the beauty of natural hair). Instead of trying to shape your natural hair, hug it and celebrate!
