How I Manage My Hair Products

After discovering the numerous hair care videos and  blogs, I took a step to ensure that regardless of my economic status, I’d do all I could to make the hair better than it was. However, upon purchasing my first leave in, I saw that it would be prudent to have a plan to cater for all my products needs whilst avoiding increasing my expenditure. I developed a time schedule for each product; when to buy a product, when to use it, how to use it and how long I would use it.

Before I purchase anything new, I weigh its necessity and do I need it or its just something I desire/want? If after pondering over this I decide it’s a need, I create a budget for it. On the other hand, if it’s just something I merely desire/want, I place it on a wish list. To me, writing down my wishes is a step to obtaining them; even if it takes years. For a needed product, I pray to God to make a way. I tell him why I need it. Funny right? That’s my faith!

My Purchases
I don’t make purchases right after creating a budget; I scout for the price and possible alternatives. Eg I had been using MVP leave in which had protein and since I’d chosen to cut down on protein products, I targeted a moisture based; Luster’s S-Curl was selected after searching through forums. When I wanted to buy the s-curl, which is a leave-in and moisturizer too, I sought for an alternative too and got to know that Hawaiian Silky 14-in-1 was equally beneficial. I do this so that if I can’t afford the former, the latter would come in.
Also, I tend to buy products that are multi purpose eg Dark and lovely cholesterol can be used for co-wash and as a deep conditioner. I used my oil mix as a sealant and for pre shampoo and I use S—curl, which is both a leave-in and moisturizer. This saves money and time.

Using the product
Most of ladies on a hair care journey try to remain minimalists as regards products. For me, a little goes a long way so I don’t go chasing products regularly. Additionally, because my purchases are planned, I make sure the products serve me for a long time before running out.
To avoid stress and worries over hair products, these basic tips have guided me in this journey and am still looking for better avenues to make the journey more easier.
