#Scenario – You are supposed to go grocery shopping, but find yourself checking out and spending your grocery money on hair products you don’t need.

Now, some stores (like Target) will take your products back that you have no use for. While other stores, will not take the product back unless it is in the original packaging. All this buying and hoarding will lead to a closet/bin/dresser full of unnecessary products taking up space.

The worst thing to do will be to throw your products in the garbage and waste money. So instead of worrying about what to do with products that you will never use...

You would think that being a product junkie is a mental disorder or something that needs a cure. Let me tell you that there is nothing wrong with being a product junkie! Yes, a product junkie may have certain flaws that we tend to write off as “wasteful with money” but if you want to purchase products and try them out do not let the blogs stop you.

So what, you love to purchase product after product before having any empties. Okay, so your closet and bins resemble a local hair care store. Guess what? At least you will have a product review on each product to advise others and products to swap/sell. I say that is surely a double win for the product junkie.

Crown Breakage Is Real! 4 Tips To Re-Evaluate Your Hair Regimen

Crown Breakage Is Real! 4 Tips To Re-Evaluate Your Hair Regimen

Usually when I take out a protective style, I look for retained growth from the 6-8 weeks of wearing the style. After finally washing my hair from the remnants of the protective style, I’m absolutely excited about the end results.

Hair Tips | Give Up The Comb For Healthy, Natural Hair

Hair Tips | Detangle Fine Natural Hair
"I haven’t combed my hair in almost two years and my hair is the longest it has ever been."

This is a quote I saw on BGLH's article True Life: I’m a Type 4 Natural and I Haven’t Combed My Hair in 2 Years. I mean it makes perfect sense to keep the combs and brushes away from curly, coily, and kinky hair. The detangling process should be gentle and steadily slow.

Combs and brushing can literally cause severe mechanical damage to your strands. As you are combing or brushing your hair, you will come across many tangles and knots. Remember:

WEAK strands=LOTS of breakage=NO length retention
