    expression "let your hair down"

    what is the equivalent in Russian of the expression "let your hair down" - ( to behave freely and naturally, being inhibited )

    I wanted to integrate it in some questions:

    Do you "let your hair down" often?
    How often do you "let your hair down"? can you give some details please?

    thanks

    Звездочёт gives word-by-word translation.
    to behave naturally = быть естественным, быть самим собой

    У Вас часто получается быть самим собой?

    Opposite question is more common:
    Вы часто комплексуете? (intense, hairs up)

    Hmm... "To behave freely and naturally, being inhibited". What is this about? About hairs or a man? If you meant a man, the maxmixiv's explanation is what you need.

    спасибо за ответы.

    Звездочёт here is another way to express it in English - asked to a woman:

    You seem very much in control of yourself, do you ever let go and be wild sometimes?
