Are You a Product Junkie?
First of all what is a Product Junkie? A Product Junkie or PJ is someone who has to buy all of the new products, and try all of the new lines. Being a PJ is usually necessary in the beginning of your hair journey simply because you don’t know what products work well for your hair. Have you ever had someone rave about how great a product is but when you try it, you HATE how it feels on your hair? The reason for this is because we all have different hair and it responds differently to different products. The best way to try new products is to attend a hair show where you can purchase small sample sized packets for a lower price. Your local beauty supply store may also sale theses sample sized Packets.
So how do you keep from going broke purchasing hair products, get a buddy or join a group. If you know someone else who is going back natural buddy up with them, this way if you try a product and don’t like it you may be able to swap with your buddy for something she has that doesn’t work for her. Another way to get access to even more products is joining a natural hair group, you can browse the internet for meetup groups in your area or throw a Product Swap party yourself. Tell your fellow Naturals that you are having a Product Swap party, and have them bring their products they want to donate. All you have to do is provide Bags or Containers to put the products in and Labels so they know what they are trying.
While most go through PJ phase in the beginning, you often go through this phase a little later in your journey as your hair gets longer. Often times as you try new styles as your hair gets longer and you aren’t getting the look you want. When our hair grows longer we like to show it off, which often involves using different products that will assist in stretching the hair. Your old products don’t have to go in the trash, give them to someone else to try, they will appreciate it.
My Final Tip
If you find a product your hair likes, stock up on it. Companies will sometimes change their ingredients without even informing the consumers by putting a new label on the bottle. Sometimes products can be a little pricey so if your favorite products are on sale this is another reason to stock-up.Show
