Have you ever considered yourself a product junkie with too many hair products to count?. Or it seems that everytime you go to Target, you always find a new curly hair product that catches your eye?. Even if you know you should not buy it, you still try to reason in your head why you need that product. Knowing that you still have products that you have not opened yet that are collecing dust on your shelf.
The thing is, being natural can be a rollercoaster. With so many products out on the market, it’s hard to decide. Especially when it comes to what products that work for your hair and still trying to keep a budget. Because let’s face it, being natural is not always cheap. Which can make it a little bit harder for some of us to stick to a budget becuase most of the nicer products cost money.
Truth is, sometimes becoming a product junkie is part of the journey. When you are newly natural and you just have no clue on what products to use. Which is something that happened to me. Because in the beginning of my journey, I used Youtube as my guide to finding the right products.
Thinking that, it was the answer to unlocking the secrets to the natural hair community. Until I started to realize that everything you see online is not what it’s cracked up to be. And everyone has a different hair type. Meaning that you can not base your outcome on somebody else results.
Your hair journey may come with many ups and downs. That may come at a cost of money going down the drain. Yet even so, once you find what works for you, then you can down size your list. I mean i am not saying to stop buying new products to try out. But once you find your staple products, then it will be easier for you to shop for products. Becusse you will know what works for you or not. So I hope you all enjoyed my post and talk to you all in my next blog post!
