Highly Recommended Products for Locs!

Why is going natural so expensive?



It's often said that to go natural is too expensive. You have to buy this product and  that product and so on and so on. But is it really expensive to rock the hair your born with? Do you REALLY need all those products?

Lets talk about this!

It's sad to say that going natural have only been 'cool' for the last few years. But it is true. When we were little girls the vast amount of information available to us now was not there then. Even if you don't admit it, we bought hair products that had a pretty permed hair girl on the front or stuff you saw your mom or sister used. NONE of us looked at the ingredients. And why would we? We did not understand anything but what the marketers said it will or won't do for our hair. 


 We trusted the hair dressers - who are mostly not highly educated - with the hair chemicals and products more than ourselves - who actually hold degrees. Whatever they said was law. But most of us who had perms have experienced hair breakage or growth to our shoulders then that's it. We were never really taught how to understand what we put in our hair and what it does. Well other than the hair dresser saying "buy this, it's good for your hair". 

To be totally honest, as a natural, your weekly/monthly hair care regimen should not break your pocket. All you need is a good cleanser, conditioner, leave in or moisturizer and an oil. That's It! My Shea moisture shampoo is natural and cost me no more than $10 and last me months, my conditioners are cheap (mostly herbal essences) which cost me around $6 for a huge bottle and my Shea Moisture smoothie is $10. Right there you see it's cheap. So does it cost a lot to be a natural? NO!

Ok, so you might say "but those are not the prices I see in the natural hair aisles". And I agree. Lots of hair products company shoot their prices up because going natural have become a new 'niche'. Seriously, there is no real reason why those products should be $30 and more a piece. When I look at the ingredients they are things I can get myself and a mixer. Why am I paying $30 a pop for something clearly not worth my money. And do I really need to?

Now don't get me wrong, I buy all sorts of products. I have tons of products at my house and my boyfriend's house. But that is my little product junkie habit. I don't HAVE to buy tons of products. I just want to. So there you have it. Going Natural does not have to be expensive unless you want it to. You don't need a lot. You can make your own spritz and Shea butter mixes if you like. To be honest I am yet to find a hair mist better than my aloe vera mix I have in my spray bottle. Being natural is fun. Don't let it seem complicated and don't buy a product because other people are using it. Find what work for you and stick with it. I suggest trying the Shea Moisture line. There is something for everyone and at a good price. 

Do you spend tons on hair products?

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs Hi Loves, I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation. In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs. Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?

Dossier Perfume Review - Is It Worth It?

Have you heard about Dossier Perfume? They are a perfume brand that creates scents inspired by luxury brands for ONLY $29 - a fraction of the price.  Scents I Tried: Oriental 1 - inspired by YSL Black Opium Floral 3 - inspired by Chanel’s Chanel No. 5 Click on my link to shop: DOSSIER   Use GLAM10 for 10% off. I love y’all, save some coins.  How it works:   The way it works is that they send a small sample in every perfume box, that can be opened and tested before opening the big 50ml bottle. - If you don't want to keep the scents, all you have to do is return them within 30 days from receiving, and you will be charged absolutely nothing! - The returned bottles must be unsealed - that's why they include the sample :) Have you tried Dossier or interested in trying it out?
