As you know, I’m having a moratorium on buying new products from November 2020 to the end of 2021. But I couldn’t go out without a couple of splurges from my September and October pay days. I am a product junkie after all!
And by the way, ew, “splurges” is such a gross word!
I look at my product cupboard and think it’s kind of cool. I don’t need to worry about being able to care for my hair. And it being full is reassuring to me. But it’s also a problem. And I can’t carry on like this. There are so many products in there, it’s actually overwhelming. What I’ve realised is that I want to be surrounded by love in my life and love when it comes to my hair. And of course, there are products in my cupboard that I love and ones I haven’t tried yet that I will love. But also products I won’t. I don’t want to keep buying stuff I won’t love and how do I do that?
Stop buying new things…for a while at least.
So to say goodbye to my unhealthy and expensive ways, I had to go out with a bang! I mean, I didn’t have to but here we are, aren’t we? I haven’t tried any of these new products below before but some may just end up in my Holy Grail. And that would justify my purchases, wouldn’t it?

Melanin Haircare Multi-use Softening Leave-In Conditioner – what more can I say but Naptural85!
Melanin Haircare Twist-Elongating Style Cream – I’ve seen so many good reviews, so many!
Rose Water – apparently great for hair and skin
Wild Natural Deodorant – I know this isn’t haircare but it’s a new natural deodorant to try after giving nuud a go. Here’s a link to 20% off if you’re interested in trying it. I get money off too! Full review to come at some point in the future but you’ll probably try it before I get it posted!
I’m particularly hoping the Aunt Jackie’s products I’ve bought in this splurge are as good as the ones I got a few months ago. I’m happy to give them a go because the other products are amazing, great value for money and so easy to get my hands on. Aunt Jackie’s are my best bet from this bunch to become regular purchases. And I’m assuming they’ll work just as well. Am I that lucky though? I also want to get into Melanin Haircare because the product sizes are huge, the ingredients are top notch and I want to support Naptural85, she’s been such a great resource in my journey.
Let’s keep growing together!
