We all have this question going through our mind “can i straight my virgin hair without relaxing it?”

  The answer is YES you can. Some of the deep curly or wavy patterns may be challenging to straighten because the curl pattern is so deep and it will take a long time.

    It is very important that you use a quality heat protectant on your hair. Your hair is 100% pure virgin hair so it can become heat damaged just as a relaxed hair would. With curly/wavy hair you risk the chance that your curl pattern will not return after applying excessive heat to your hair repeatedly. If you continually apply heat to your hair, you will begin to train your hair to be straight.  Our suggestion is; if you want curly hair, then wear your Virgin hair curly. If you prefer to wear your hair straight or wavy, then the wavy textures will be best for you since they offer the most versatility.

Also you must remember, Virgin hair when straightened gives the best look. But gradually hair starts loosing their luster after number of treatments. So don’t expect the same first time look after subsequent sessions.

Maintaining a virgin hair is not as easy as it is with maintain an already relaxed hair, it is even more difficult for people that has a stubborn hair.They have big issues with combing and styling their hair and it is quite painful for them whenever they are trying to do so (I.e to comb and style their hair). Most times keeping and maintaining your virgin hair without relaxing it gives you a great feeling of confidence.


Yes you can but firstly you need to know the meaning of a virgin hair…

This is hair that has not been chemically processed.

The first step is to stop relaxing your hair. It is that simple. There is nothing that you can buy and pour on your hair that will revert it to natural hair from relaxed hair. If you stop relaxing your hair, your new growth will be all natural.

For those that do not mind having short natural hair, they typically cut off the relaxed ends after very few months of new growth or when there is no new growth.

So there you have it, to go from relaxed hair to natural hair is basically a matter of using a pair of scissors AND stopping the application of relaxer or texturizer. As Africans, afro-textured hair grows out of our scalp and so we do not need to do anything to specially grow it. Simply do not relax it and after a while, you will have enough natural hair on your scalp to liberate from relaxed hair.

for those that thinks it is only when you barb your hair that you can be able to start growing a virgin hair, that’s a false feeling you don’t actually need to barb you hair so low before you can make it. Alternatively leaving the hair for like 1 year without relaxing will make it very strong and thick all you now need to do is, trim off the tips of the hair and vum! You are now on a lowkey natural (virgin) hair #winks

You can equally dye your natural hair to any color you want, it all depends on your choice. If you want to add more color to your looks then you can add more sauce(dye) to your hair..
