It is no secret that natural hair products can be pricey which can be a challenge in maintaining our hair. What I believe in is that the most important thing of taking care of your natural hair is your regimen. Then the products are just an addition to a proper regiment and with this rule we can learn to stick to a few products that are really important.
Thus, I decided to share a few tips we can employ that would allow you to take care of your hair without hurting your wallet.
Use what you already have
I know howeasy it is to be a product horder especially when you constatly want to try out new products. By using the products you already have prevents you from buying products on a monthly basis. The best thing is to ensure that you finish what you already own before buying new products.
Making yourown products is not necessarily difficult and it can save you some money. This does not require anything fancy as you can use products you already buy on a monthly basis for your groceries and stuff i.e. banana, avocado, mayonnaise (for protein treatment) etc . The recipes are available online and they are easy to follow.
You are using more products than you actually need
The most important aspect when it comes to your hair is a regimen/routine and once you have that sorted everything falls into place. Personally, the most important products are: water, oil, leave-in conditioner/cream, shampoo and deep conditioner. Once you have identified the important products for your hair then you are sorted. You dontneed to use 3 different creams at the same time, it doesn’t make sense at all.
Attend Hair Events
I’ve never actually attended one before because they are always far from where I am. These events from what I’ve noticed usually offer gifts bags which consists of different products. I think the tickets are not expensive at all, so if you know of any in your area, do attend and you can also learn a lot from others as well.
The growth of social media has increased the way businesses operate in terms of marketing. They use social media to market their products and in doing that, competitions are always used. Especially if you follow natural hair influencers, you might stand a chance of winning a few products during these competions.
Be on a look out for sales when you are planning to buy your products. When you buy products on sale you save a bit of money.
So, while I’m still a bit of a product junkie, I am a lot moore strategic about how I buy new products. Trying a new product without breaking the bank always makes the experience even sweeter.
