What staple products do you need???
I feel like I have hit a new stage in my journey of becoming natural. It is a very comfortable stage. This stage requires me to closely pay attention to what goes on my hair. I am being honest with myself in what works in my hair and what doesn't work. I was the classic product junkie, if I saw it, I had to try it! Now I won't lie and make it seem like I am cured BUT I honestly respect what works for my hair. What does that mean? Well I recognize when something consistently works and I'm pleased with the results. I can finally say that I have staples. You should have a staple in what I like to call the "Must Have" product categories such as shampoo, conditioner, etc..So what product should you find staples for and have in your arsenal? Here is a list and I have also given you what my staple is for that category if I have found one, as well as the frequency of my use of the product if it applies!
