Maintaining your natural hair doesn't have to cost a fortune. Many new naturals fall victim to product junkyism, trying any and everything someone suggests to them. Its great to get advise, but proceed with care. Read lables and make an informed decision based on YOUR hair needs. There are tons of products out there and something will be that magic potion for you, done automatically assume that just because somethings cost more that its a better quality. I can name a few OVER priced products that many have tried and got less than stellar results. You can go in your kitchen right now and find some useful aids for your tresses, like EVOO(extra virgin olive oil), honey, baking soda, to name a few. So do some research and get to know your hair and decide what it needs to flourish. Happy growing!!
