Confessions Of A Product Junkie

I don’t have to be a rocket scientist or see constant natural hair memes to realize I’m a product junkie. The photo above (featured image of the post) is a picture of some, I REPEAT SOME, products that I have. I have more than that, but I couldn’t carry all of that to the table LOL.

So, I’ve come up with a few questions for myself about the product addiction I have.

  1. Why do you buy so many products?
  2. How much have you spent on products so far?
  3. How often do you use your products?
  4. Do you have a favorite or your choice of favorites?

 

1. I have so many products because I’m also a shopping addict. I can’t go into a mall without buying something because I feel the need to always buy something! Every time I watch a hair commercial on TV or on YouTube, I want to try the product out and use it for myself, try it on my mom’s hair who is natural as well, or do a product review on it. Also, it seems like a lot to someone, but to me… each product has its own purpose.

2. Honestly, just on 5 bottles of Organix I’ve spent $26. So I know I’ve spent about $250 -$300 on the hair products shown in the picture. The beauty store in Charlotte that I go to, prices their products a little high.

3. Honestly, I only wear my natural hair out about half of the year because summer is CURL SEASON (to me at least lol) and because I enjoy wearing protective styles (wigs) more.

4. My favorite products are Aphogee 2 Minute Protein Reconstructor, Organix Kukui Shampoo, and Pantene Cowash.

  1. Hi, my name is Victoria and I’m a product junkie LOL. I really know this struggle; I don’t think I could fit all of my products into one picture (I have about 8 in the shower alone). To answer your questions:

    1) I buy so many products because I want to try EVERYTHING! Product reviews are my favorite part of my blog, and I want to constantly try products that I can talk to people about.
    2) … A lot. There were days when I’d go back to back to the beauty supply store and spend $100 on different products that I probably used once.
    3) With an exception of a few staples, I’ve used the majority of my products once or twice. I’m trying to cut down on spending now LOL so I’m forcing myself to use what I have.
    4) I do have a few favorites: Shea Moisture, Queens of Curls, CinagrOrganic are among my favs

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂
