5 Ways To Know If It’s Worth Your Coin

Hey there! Thank you so much for checking out my blog. I really appreciate your support. If you do not already know, my name is Sandy Esprit and I’m here to help you keep your coin. All opinions expressed are completely my own, my hope is that you get the information you need to equip you the next time you find yourself  mindlessly scrolling and buying yourself so much hair products you end up with a small beauty supply store in your bathroom cabinet. Girl, you know you have a problem…but I’m not here to judge, lol. Besides, you want to enjoy the products you buy, right?

Let’s get into it. 

Check the reviews

This is something every shopper should be doing. Just because your favourite influencer recommended it doesn’t mean that the general consensus agrees. Online reviews are thoughts and opinions expressed by the general public for better-ing ourselves…and investing in proper hair care. 

Now mind you this is not foolproof plan because every once in a while you’ll get a product that fits your personal needs that most people absolutely hate. Also if the product is new, you may get people using the product improperly. But once the product has been on the market for a minute, you can pretty much trust what’s out there. 

Research The Ingredients

What the product is made of will most likely tell you how your hair will react to it. You never want to put something on your hair that will flake, be hard to absorb into the hair cuticles and/or give you false hope. For example, a hair product may promise to heal your deep fried (heavily damaged) ends, it’s a lie. Once your hair is damaged, it’s time for a cut. No matter of product can change that. 

How Fast Do You Empty The Bottle

It smelled amazing. The price was amazing for the amount given. The texture was light and fluffy. The packaging was user friendly. But there was one problem. I needed so much product to get the result I wanted to see in my hair. I was pumping away like an addict. Only when the bottle was empty did I realize that all that money could have been spent elsewhere. I went through the product like water. I’m still upset about it. 

Do Professionals Use It

20180209_1418401761445661.jpgThis one should be a dead giveaway. Professional hairstylist use quality products in order to provide quality service. If you trust a professional (I mean one that operates out of a salon and not your cousin’s bathtub) to do your hair, you trust the products they use. There is a reason why they use these products on your hair. However, if they won’t even touch the product with a 10 foot pole, chances are their reasons are valid. If they can’t make it work, then believe me you won’t be able to either. 

Does It Do What It Says

I know I’m probably preaching to the choir but it must be stated. If it doesn’t do what it says then you wasted your money. Mind you, you have to use the product as intended, the way the instructions say to use it. You wouldn’t expect a conditioner to act as a shampoo, right? You would expect a shampoo to act as a shampoo. If my shampoo leaves my hair dirtier than the way I started, then we have a problem. Same with a leave in conditioner. Many products claim to be really moisturizing but they are not. Sometimes they claim to be able to heal all damages due to a special ingredient, chances are you are getting duped. Make sure it does, what it says it will do. Otherwise, you are getting hustled out of your money. 

 

I hope this was helpful. Let me know if you have ways of securing your bag and keeping your coin in it.
