~Hair~ Real Spotted: New Natural Hair Products in Sally Beauty Supply!

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

I call it.... "Trying to get in where you fit in"...

Alot of the "mainstream" or more popular ethnic hair care lines are coming out with their own natural hair care lines. I've seen some people get in an uproar about it...hair is also a business, these companies are trying to get in where they fit in. Natural hair is big business these days and these companies recognize that. The average natural hair girl, especially in her first year natural, is a PRODUCT JUNKIE. So that equals $$$$$ for those companies when you have a new natural trying to figure out what works.

I personally dig it. I like accessible products. I live a rural area so if I can buy it on the shelves and not have to order it and wait on it show up, I will. Most of favorite products right now have to be ordered online.

However, I have to drive 35 minutes to the nearest Sally Beauty Supply. LOL! Yep...but a 35 min drive is better than a 4-5 day shipping wait any day. *shrugs* BUT only if the product works on my hair.



Interesting signs under products normally made for chemically processed hair....can you say #Marketing101??
Dr. Miracles has a line...my problem with Dr. Miracles as a whole is that they don't list the ingredients on the bottles. Has that changed???
Curl Care is also by Dr. Miracles....
Curls Unleashed by Organic Root Simulator....
As I Am...this not all their products. I just took a photo of the Coconut Co-Wash and Cleansing Pudding. The Coconut Co-Wash was $7.99 but the Cleansing Pudding was $21.99...sharp difference in a price for no-poo/low poo cleansers. Some these products, the prices were in the $20+ range...

Finally, saw the Beautiful Textures products all the boards and vloggers have been raving about. I took one sniff....and I was done. I won't be buying any of it because the smell is not my cup of tea. Smells like Hot Six Oil....ya'll know what that is?!! LOL! I'm dating myself.

Hi Jamie! I know what you mean. I live in a rural area as well so I am beside myself when I see something I can get locally that works for my hair. I used to work at Sally's and a lot of that is just what you said, Marketing 101. It is interesting to see how many companies now care about curly hair types after they ignored that hair for so long.

I know Hot Six Oil and yes, the smell is nauseating! lol!

I have bought and returned As I Am products and I returned them as soon as possible. The Double Butter cream left my hair drier than before. I also have the Beautiful Textures and basically it was very average. I should return them but what else can I get at Sally's?
