Well here goes, I AM A PRODUCT JUNKIE!!!! I am addicted to hair products. Luckily for me, I know the source of my addiction... those darn YouTube videos featuring the latest hair product reviews. When a hair vlogger comes across a product that they coin as their "staple" they make it sound like the holy grail. And of course being the addict that I am, I am drawn in and want to get my hands on the wonder product. As a matter of fact, just yesterday, I watched a video on YouTube by a 4c vlogger talking about how amazing Entwine Couture Butter Creme Hydrator was. So of course today, I went to one of the local beauty stores and sort it out. Thankfully, they didn't have it in stock, otherwise I would have fed my addiction.
On the way home, I reflected on all the products that I have and barely use. I determined that after two and half years on this natural hair journey, I pretty much have a handle on my type 4c hair and the products that work best on it. I can continue to enjoy watching videos of what other 4c ladies are doing but I don't have to be cajoled into buying a product that I don't need. Truthfully, in my relaxed hair days, I don't recall ever having so many products. But now that i'm natural, it's like a hair care products beast has been unleashed. Below is a picture of my current stash.
As of today, I solemnly pledge to not buy another hair product until I have completely used up the ones I already have.
