National braid day!

It’s been 8 weeks since my last relaxer touch up.


Happy braiding!


Things are so damn expensive!

So I haven’t bought hair products in a while. I think my last haul was from a supermarket; meaning, I haven’t been to a beauty supply store in an even longer while.

Anyway, today I decided to pop into a couple just to look around…you know how it is when you are waiting for someone in town.

I was amazed at the wide range of hair products available. But the prices shocked me. Remember; I started this hair journey thing back in 2011…7 years ago. Back then, there weren’t that many products in stock and the ones I considered expensive were still affordable…if that makes sense. Now I look at the prices of those same products and am beyond shocked. I know prices go up but damn!

I think it’s great that we have all these products available, and moreso that information on how to grow healthy hair is everywhere, but judging from what’s being put out there, you’d think that these expensive products are what will do the trick. I’ve probably perpetrated this line of thought. #sorry

I started out my hair journey using products that were on the lower side (price wise) and my hair thrived. God blessed me and I was able to afford products I used to dream about 😀 My hair still thrived.

Now there are all these other products that I just can’t justify buying. These are the products I excitedly pick off the shelf then gently put back 😀 Maybe one day in the future I’ll treat myself to one (or a couple) of those…

Am getting side tracked.

I just wanted to put up a post letting anyone starting a healthy hair journey know that you don’t need expensive products to grow your hair. You can find cheap ones that work great. And a little of the product goes a long way so you don’t have to keep repurchasing stuff. This hair journey thing is doable on a budget.

Or maybe its because I feel off since I can’t bring myself to purchase these stuff :/

Ok. Am done

Happy shopping!
