Naptural85 on YouTube posted a really cute video about her views on natural hair products. Her views were along the lines of (and please watch her video) natural hair products should be a luxury and not something you depend on. She wasn’t talking about “natural products” but, more so natural store bought products and product lines. I totally agree with her!
I think that while it’s great to have products you love, it’s also great to know how to make and mix your own products. Some people use products and have no idea why that product works for their hair. This is not great because if that company goes out of business or changes their prices, you’ll be looking crazy trying to find another “go to” product. I have seen this a few times on different forums. A company will change their formula or prices and customers will be upset because that line of products was a staple.
Nothing wrong with having staples (I have mine) but, have backups and learn how to get the same results with homemade products. I know how to get a nice twist out with the bare minimum because, I have learned that it’s more about technique than it is products.
I think getting the perfect hairstyle is about 85% technique and 15% products. If you only have water, castor oil and shea butter, you can still get nice hair if you know how to properly layer your products and what moisturizers are etc. For example, you would spritz with water first, add the castor oil and then seal with the shea butter. Don’t believe me? Try it and see how your hair comes out!

As I always say, Keep It Simple! To me, no product is worth $15 plus dollars especially, if it is just juices and berries! I can make that myself!! Products should cost me less to buy than to make on my own and buy all the ingredients separate. I should feel like I’m getting a deal not like I’m getting bamboozled.
My advice is, set a product budget and stick to it and if you see something you want that costs more than your budget than make it yourself! Shea butter and aloe vera gel make a nice custard that might rival some top brands…try it!
Do you make any of the products you use? Do you depend on one product line? What would you do if your staple line went out of business?
