Natural Hair Products For Black Hair If Your On A Budget

Ok, so your on a budget and even though you see a new natural product that everyone is raving about, you just don't have the money to buy it.  I'm going to give you some tips, products and company's that you can use to stay on that tight budget and still get natural products or products that work at a good price.

My Budget List

    Products I buy from them

Organic Unrefined  Shea Butter

a. Organic Unrefined Shea Butter 1/2 1b $5.00 or 1 1b $8.00 the shea butter is great quality and lasts me a long time  depending on how often I use it

b. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil 8oz $6.99, 16oz for $12.99, 32oz for $21.99 the coconut oil is also great quality and lasts me along time depending on how often I use it.
Tea Tree Hair and Scalp Oil
c. Tea Tree Hair and Scalp Oil $7.99 I don't know the oz, I haven't ordered this in awhile but it is really nice.  This doesn't last me to long like about 1 to 2 months.

Pure Authentic Raw African Black Soap

d. Raw African Black Soaps 1/2 $4.99, 1 lb $8.00, 3 1b $22.50, 6 1b $38.00, I used this on my face for awhile and it helped with my pimples, only stopped using because I'm using creams prescribed my doctor that are working excellent.  You just have to cut small pieces of the bar and put in a empty bottle then add warm water to dissolve, I also use this some times to bath with.  I tried it on my hair, but it didn't get rid of the build up on my scalp or hair.  A lot of reviews I've read say that this clarify's the hair with out stripping it, but it doesn't clean my hair properly.  

That's all the products that I buy from Butters-n-Bars, I mix the coconut oil and shea butter together with extra virgin olive oil that I purchase at the grocery store and tea tree oil that I pick up from the pharmacy. I apply this to my hair when needed and also to my skin as a lotion when it's dry.  They have a lot of quality raw natural ingredients that you can make products with at a awesome price.

Amazon is a great place to look for products, some company's may be selling the product cheaper, but check out the company's rating before you buy from them.  Also check out how much they charge for shipping.  You should also check to see if the company selling the product is also selling something else you want so you can pay one shipping total.  Look below at the example see where it say's 15 new, click on that.  A list of sellers will come up, showing the price they charge, their shipping price and how people rated the company.

a. The Giovanni Smooth As Silk Shampoo 8oz lowest price at the time of this blog post on Amazon $3.34 sold by Vitacost, this shampoo get's your hair clean without all the harsh detergents found in other shampoos.  This may dry your hair out a little, will have to follow up with a moisturizing conditioner.

b. The Giovanni Smooth As Silk Conditioner 8oz lowest price at the time of this blog post on Amazon $4.56 sold by Price Pros, this will restore moisture to your hair that you lost from shampooing your hair.  You can also detangle your hair in the shower while using this.

c. The Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner 8oz lowest price at the time of this blog post on Amazon $3.19 sold by Vitacost, this is great to use as a leave in so your hair won't dry out.  You can also use this product to detangle your hair.

3. Products I Pick Up at Beauty Supply's or Drug Stores

c. The Eco Styler Gel isn't 100% natural but it is alcohol free and it does define your natural curls.  If you have never seen your natural curl pattern try this.  I also use it on my daughters 3C hair, it doesn't cause build up on her hair or scalp.  I used it once, it defined my 4a hair, gave it a beautiful style, didn't leave any build up on my hair or scalp.  You would have to rinse this out your hair properly first, before you detangle though.  This product can be purchased sometimes for under $5 or less.

d. The Fantasia Ic Heat Protector Straightening Serum isn't natural either, but I've been using this for a long time.  I haven't decided on purchasing a natural one, because there all so expensive.  This leaves my hair soft and protected from the heat.  I usually just pick this up at the beauty supply store.  It is usually under $10.

Final Thought
I use other product's that I really like, but these are my least expensive buy's.  All the products above can be used as a full Regimen, only thing listed isn't a treatment.  That is because you can just make one with mayo, eggs, extra virgin olive oil and tea tree oil.  Check out my video on how I make that.
