Losing Confidence In Your Natural Hair? Try These 6 Tips To Excite You Again

Group of natural hair women

3. Join a meet up group, hair care forum or a social media group

Sometimes we need that support group to fill in the void of the family and friends who are giving us negative feedback that might make your confidence slip.

Relevant meet up groups, hair care forums and Facebook groups all have that same main interest; natural hair. They promote positivity about curly, coily, and kinky hair, which is exactly what you need; for them to root for you when your confidence is a bit low.

4. Create a vision board

Evolve your goals from paper and make an admiration poster that you can see daily. This will remind you of the goals that you would like to reach one day.

Make this project by using a cork board or poster and printable pictures. Once you have created this with all kinds of inspiration, put it somewhere to remind you of your own personal goals.


If you are more into carrying your vision board around, create a board on Pinterest for daily inspiration. Seeing is believing, so if you see your vision board full of hair goals daily, this will put you in a position to be excited about your natural hair again.

5. Make your own hair products

Hey! Less commercial means healthier hair for you. Sometimes we need that drastic push to get excited about something, so create your own hair care products.

Check out different YouTube tutorials to learn how to blend herbs, oils, and juices for your own hair care regimen. Get to know what works for your hair by trial and error so you can know what to put in your hair products. Being a kitchenista will not only allow you to create your own hair products but you will have fun doing it.

6. Take a break

There is nothing like a long term protective style that will make you miss your curls coils and kinks. If you are at an awkward length and in a style rut at the same time, you could try a protective style like, crochet braids, box braids or Marley twists.

After a few months of having your hair locked away you will start to miss your hair so much, you will find yourself with just as much energy as the day you did your big chop.

What do you do to gain confidence with your natural hair?

I can totally relate to #6! I’m at an awkward stage , that’s why I had my hair braided !

This helps. To be honest this natural thing is getting old, but thanks goodness I’ve seen this article, don’t ever wanna go back to the scalp burns, shedding, same length, thin hair, boring straight hair relaxer stage again.

I’m in the awkward stage length and I’m getting two strand twists this Wednesday I’m only going to have a little bit of extensions added since my hair hates weave and I hate weave and extensions . I think I’m doing this for four years then I’ll take it down and just braid my own hair with no added extensions and some days take it out in a braid out .

My hair makes me smile so much! I cut off waist length perm hair. Thought I made the worse decision but now Im in love with it.

Perfect timing on this article because 3 years in I’m getting tired of all of the work to get a good looking style and miss the old days of just putting my hair in a bun or ponytail when I didn’t feel like dealing with it, cant do that with my shoulder length 4C because it frizzes so with the tiniest amount of sweat or humidity.
