Please define all natural
Does that mean just products that have no synethic stuff in them? or is it care of 100% natural hair (no relaxers or color)?

to me, all natural means no synthetic ingredients and minimal to no processing.
jojoba oil that is cut with other oils or processed with chemicals or gases, rendering the finished product a virtually clear color, instead of a natural golden color, isn't all natural, to me.
100% pure shea butter that has a whipped consistency and smells like cocoa butter isn't all natural.
fruit of the earth aloe gel or any aloe vera gel with the consistency of hair gel is far from all natural, yet a lot of people think it's authentic.
coconut oil that is blended with mineral oil or petrolatum is not all natural.
bar soaps made with fragrance, additives, dyes, and preservatives aren't all natural.
most lotions, even natural ones found in health food stores aren't all natural because they often need synthetic chemicals to emulsify the ingredients and/or preserve them.
TEA (triethanolamine, not herbal tea), mineral oil, mineral jelly, petrolatum/petroleum, DEA, MEA, SLS, SLES, propylene glycol, -parabens, EDTA, -cones, etc., make products not natural and can possibly make products harmful.
