Transition Completion

Featuring Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Anti-Shrinkage

In this tutorial, I am going to complete my friend Cherie’s transition from relaxed to natural hair and review some products from Dark and Lovely’s Au Naturale Anti-Shrinkage line!

Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Anti-Shrinkage Collection

Featured products:

All of the products in the Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Anti-Shrinkage line have mango seed oil, which is packed with Vitamin A, a vitamin that helps prevent hair loss and helps your scalp produce natural oils to prevent dryness and dandruff. They also contain bambusa vulgaris extract, or bamboo extract, which is a source of natural silica that will strengthen hair and also help prevent hair loss. There are also several variations of organic coconut that will help with moisture penetration.  What I love about this line is that all of the products apply easily to the hair, they have a light, tropical floral smell and none of the products are sticky, and you can feel the moisture in each one.

You can find this line at several retail outlets such as Target, Walgreens and Walmart, or at

Other products and tools:

Total time:

Total time for the style, omitting the cutting and overnight dry time was about 90 minutes.

Keep and care:

To preserve this style you can re-twist your perimeter hair and tie a silk scarf around it. You can also co-wash with a hydrating conditioner or product specifically formulated for co-washing and reset your hair mid-week if necessary.
