My secret to buying natural hair products & how I stay on a budget!

Hi Beauties!

Gorg: Source

Tired of basically throwing your hard earned money away by purchasing all these branded OVER priced "all natural" hair products??? I know this feeling all too well, and I know you do as well (especially my transitioners out there.) It's so tempting to buy the newest, most popular natural hair product. But what if you spend more than $20 on one product and you use it only once because it ends up not working for your "type" of hair. This can be discouraging not to mention expensive. 

I wanted to share with you guys what source I use for most of my natural hair products.

First up is my go to site for most of my "all natural" hair products. Most naturals might know of it, but for others it might be new. I introduce you to iherb.com. This little magical gem has a wide assortment of all natural hair products ranging from shampoo's to oils and vitamins all for a stellar price point!

For example, I always purchase my go to Aubrey Organics, Honeysucke conditioner here. The price is phenomenal! $9.29 will get you a 11fl oz bottle, enough to last you for a couple months at least! While browsing this site you will notice that they offer bundles on specific products so you can save even more.

iHerb.com has really great value, not to mention a great assortment of products. If you happen to buy a shampoo and you don't like it, you lose 5 bucks instead of $15-20 by buying those over priced natural hair products.

Now, this isn't to say that I don't like some mainstream products. I have my fair share of favorites, but there are other options out there that shouldn't be forgotten, and  iherb.com makes it affordable for you to shop those brands!

Some other great options for substituting expensive mainstream natural hair products is by shopping at your local Indian Grocer. You will find tons of dirt cheap products that are all apart of the ayurvedic regimen. The ayurvedic practice is  made up of all natural, herbs, powders, oils and techniques to promote hair health, growth, thickness and length. To put it simply, it’s a holistic approach to hair care. This is a time consuming regimen, but well worth it and you will save a lot of money taking this route. These all natural hair products literally start from $3.00, and some places even less. Check out this online Indian Grocer: iShopIndian.com.

That's all for now beauties! Have you tried any of these sites before? Do you have any natural hair sites that we should know about?? Sound off below!

  1. Hi,

    Great Blog!! I also buy my natural products online. I buy most from vitacost.com I find it to be much cheaper than in store. I buy my staple products in bulk because you get free shipping if your order is over $49. I mostly buy conditioner and oils. It usually lasts for at least 5-7 months so in the long run I still end up saving. The only down side is that they do not carry too many ayurvedic products.
