Natural hair growth FAQ

Curl Questions

How we control shrinkage

Depending on your curl pattern and hair texture, we recommend using Soft Curls Curling Crème or Curl Shaper Custard for wash & go, rod set or twist out styles. Use pineapple, binding or twisting techniques at night to maintain stretch.

For a more long-term solution, try our Curl Stretch & Defining Treatment. This frizz-fighting protective treatment smooths the hair while softening and stretching the curl pattern. It provides users 4-8 weeks of elongation and shrinkage reduction for stretched out, healthy and smooth curls.

How we combat dry hair woes

All of the products in the You Be-Natural line are designed to help moisturize your natural hair. Start with selecting one of our moisturizing shampoos, Tangle Me Knot Detangling Shampoo or Hydra Soft Conditioning Shampoo. Next, add strength and additional moisture to your hair with our Deep Moisturizing & Softening Mayonnaise Conditioner or our Hydra Soft Moisturizing Conditioner. Finally, finish off your style by sealing in moisture with our Moisture Lock Curl Lotion and Curl Moisturizing and Defining Spray.

How we beat breakage

We’ve created products designed specifically to help strengthen and protect your hair so it can thrive. You Be-Natural Tangle Me Knot Detangling Shampoo, Hydra Soft Conditioning Shampoo, Deep Moisturizing & Softening Mayonnaise Conditioner, and Hydra Soft Moisturizing Conditioner are all formulated with nourishing ingredients to help strengthen and protect your hair against breakage. Additionally, our Scalp Soother Ointment is enriched with vitamin E and six natural oils and butters to help create a healthy scalp environment and promote healthy hair growth. For those looking for a more long-term solution, try our Curl Stretch & Defining Treatment. This product adds essential proteins back into the hair to help repair it by strengthening from the inside out and, depending on how often you shampoo, can last 4-8 weeks.

How we tame the frizz

Hair that isn’t properly moisturized is more susceptible to frizz. To help combat frizz, we’ve created specific products to meet your needs based on your curl type. For those with tight spirals, rod sets and protective styles, we recommend the Defrizz Define & Shine Serum. For wash-n-go styles, try the Curl Moisturizing and Defining Spray, Moisture Lock Curl Lotion and Defrizz Define & Shine Serum.

How we help with curl problems

We’d love to help you achieve the curl pattern you desire. Start the process by moisturizing with our Moisture Lock Curl Lotion. Next, use one of our curl defining products to create your curls. It is important to choose the proper products for your hair texture For kinky, coily locks, try our Curl Shaper Custard. For those with soft, curly textures, try Soft Curls Curling Crème. If you don’t have a natural curl pattern, use a rod or twisting technique to create texture. Always seal your style with Defrizz Define & Shine Serum.

Transistion With Us

How can I transition and still wear straight styles?

We get it, you like what you like and our goal is to help you not only like, but love your hair. If you intend to wear straight styles while you’re transitioning to natural hair, the key will be to infuse with moisture, protect against heat damage and avoid breakage. To help avoid breakage while transitioning, use the Straightening & Strengthening Treatment. It will protect hair at its most vulnerable point, the line of demarcation (the point where the natural hair meets the previously relaxed hair). Apply Defrizz Define & Shine Serum before flat ironing for added heat protection. Maintain a perfect balance of strength and moisture with Hydra Soft Conditioning Shampoo & Hydra Soft Moisturizing Conditioner.

Do I have to “big chop” if I want to transition?

Of course not! That decision is entirely up to you. If you choose not to chop, we’re happy to provide product recommendations that can help you reach your natural hair goals. Our Scalp Soother Ointment is the perfect way to nourish your scalp and promote growth during your transition. If you’re wearing curly styles during your transition, you will have to create a curl on the straight ends until they are completely trimmed away.
