  1. I have definitely spent too much on my natural hair care products and I became a product junkie quick and never really testing anything out to see if it really works well for my hair. But i eventually went to a natural hair care salon and finally got down to my signature products that works great for my hair type.

    When I first went natural, I've always thought I had to get the expensive natural hair products to care for my hair and it was a disaster. My entire check would go to hair care and I began to resent my hair. Then I watch Naptural85 and other natural hair vloggers who either make their own products or use great cheapies, but their technique is what makes their hair healthy. So I tried that and I felt better about my hair. Now I use V05 for cowashing, a water mister, and coconut oil for my hair care routine. More money for me! Great article :)
