You just found out the hair product you spent your hard earned money on doesn’t work for you. What do you do now? Well let me tell you. You remix that hair product!
If you currently have natural hair or are in your transitioning stages you will come across hair products that just don’t work for you. You know, that one particular hair product that claims to help with detangling, but instead leave your hair knotted.
There is always a hair product all over social media claiming to be just what you need to feed moisture into your thirsty curls, coils, and kinks. Instead when use it the product feels like it just striped the rest of the precious moisture you were trying to hold on to! Leaving your hair feeling dry as a bone. Don’t stress, you are just going to have to remix that hair product!
What Not To Do
First off, it’s a good idea to get in the habit of turning that bottle or jar around and reading the ingredients included in the hair product. Sometimes we get so star-eyed about getting the latest in hair product hype, that we shovel out our coins blindly. Then later, we realize we would’ve been better off throwing the money to the birds. Does that sound crazy? Well it is!
Just because the lady on that commercial, Instagram, or YouTube video said it works for her, and shows you that it works for her,
doesn’t mean it’s going to work for you darling.
Thanks to Google and wonderful blogs (like mine) there is a thing called research. We have to be willing to put down the wallet long enough to read information that is available right at our finger tips. Many hair product lines are now including the ingredients of their products on their websites. So why not take that information and run it through Google first. Being an informed consumer is better then being an impulsive one….well at least I think so!
Spell It Out For Me Please
When you see ingredients like: Sulfates – per hairstylist Tony Chavez. “They tend to dry out the skin, as well as the hair follicle.” This excerpt is from the Essence.com article ‘How Exactly Are Sulfates Bad for Your Hair?’
When you see the popular ingredient: Dimethicone aka Silicone– Take note that per Shai Amiel “Silicone is really bad for curly hair because most curly hair is on the dry side. Silicones can slide off straight hair more than they can on curly hair. The silicone buildup will get stuck on the curls, weighing the hair down and causing more damage in the long run.” as quoted on Coveteur.com In the article The Truth About Silicone-Based Hair Products
