Who said that going natural was going to be easy and low maintenance? When you first become natural, don't be surprised if you find yourself shopping and buying product after product in efforts to find your staple products that work great for your hair. It's amazing how no matter how well a product might work in one natural's hair, it may not do well in your natural hair or vise versa. When I first became 100% natural I had a hard time finding products that work well in my hair. Not only that, but it started to become quite costly. I had spent so much money on products that didn't work well in my hair and ended up giving them away. And when I say giving them away I'm talking almost full bottles!!! Some naturals like trying new things and don't mind becoming product junkies, and some just want to find what is right for them without breaking the bank.
Whether you are a product junkie who likes to try new products or a natural who is in search to find your staple hair products, there are several ways to try products without wasting product or breaking the bank. Instead of purchasing new hair products and paying full price for them, you can purchase a box full of sample products for half the cost you would normally pay if you paid for each item full price.
CurlKit is a monthly subscription service that sends it's members up to 7 natural hair care products that have been created for women with various hair textures for $20.00 a month. The box is not only filled with an assortment of items for you to try, but also coupons, brochures and information about the products in your box!
Though I have my staples, lately I've been wanting to try new items just out of curiosity of how they work. Since I've experienced the frustration of purchasing products and not being satisfied with them in the past, I decided to try CurlKit myself!
