Natural hair has become synonymous with the condition known as Product Junkieism. The condition causes the afflicted to shop and shop until they find the perfect natural hair product for their curls and kinks.
You will see these individuals perusing the beauty isles of their local Sally's, beauty supply or drug store looking for a new product to try. They may even be satisfied with the products they have but feel it never hurts to try something new. They also can't wait until Curlmart has their next sale or they may already have their Black Friday beauty list written up.
I must admit that since going natural I too have become a Product Junky. Never before have I been so tempted to buy shampoo, conditioner, curl cream, deep conditioner or any other product that promises to do wonders for my hair. Thankfully, this is a preventable condition and Essence has assisted us with 12 useful tips to help us go natural without going broke:
- Avoid becoming a product junkie
- Attend natural hair meetups
- Watch YouTube tutorials
- Ask hair for free samples
- Join a natural hair forum
- Know your hair
- Read the ingredients
- Use only what you need
- Be mindful of return policies
- Read the manufacturer's guarantee
- Make your own products
- Embrace your own natural hair journey
Hopefully these tips will help you avoid going broke. I'm not sure if there is any hope for me as the only thing stopping me now is the fact that I have braids. :)
