This Black-owned brand makes waterproof turbans to protect your natural hair

In The Know is proud to celebrate National Black Business Month. During this month, our team will highlight a wide range of Black-owned brands. We encourage you to support today and beyond.

Folks in the Black community know that textured hair can be tricky to maintain. With this in mind, those of us with curly, kinky and coily hair types invest in quality products that keep our hair moisturized and well-styled.

The work, however, doesn’t end there, as it’s also important to keep your hair protected. One of the best ways to do this is with a silicone, satin or silk-lined wrap that reduces friction and keeps all of that moisture locked in.

Black-owned brand You Go Natural does this better than most with its chic and versatile turbans. And, best of all, they’re completely waterproof, so you can keep your hair protected in style while lounging at the beach or the pool.

Texas-based small business owner Monique Little founded the brand, inspired by “playing many roles and needing a hair covering that could go with me in every aspect of my life.”

With the busy man and woman in mind, she created You Go Natural to provide a fuss-free and elegant way to protect your hair from the elements.

Currently, there are over 100 styles to choose from, including turbans, T-shirt buns and knotted headbands. Recently, You Go Natural also launched a men’s line that’s both fashionable and versatile. Check out a few of our favorite picks below.
