Many women return to their natural hair texture after years of relaxing expecting a wonderful journey, only to discover a new set of hair woes they thought they’d left behind with the relaxer. Design Essentials® gathers the numbers, through in-house data of women who are relaxed and natural, but the number of women going back to relaxing is a reality not often addressed.

The transitioning process for those who are ceasing to straighten their hair through chemical means as well as the management process for those who have been natural for longer periods can be eased through the education process. As women embrace their texture and learn more about the personality of their hair type, curl pattern product preference, and internal and external factors, they will find empowerment.

Here are some of the chief surprises along with solutions for naturals seeking to embrace and enhance their natural textures.

Tangles: Knots, snags and snarls stemming from highly textured hair can cause frustration from even the most patient naturalista! Tangles occur when the shaft of the hair’s cuticle is raised. These raised cuticles snag each other and cause friction. Smoothing the cuticle allows hair to slip freely with less snags.
