I Just Dropped A Lot Money On Hair Care!
You guys, I decided to spend a small fortune on myself.
Anyone with trich understands what’s like to have hair insecurities and anxieties.
My hair is thick and coarse and really unmanageable and because of that it makes me pull worse.
I usually take time to straighten my hair just to take as many kinks out as possible.
It’s those kinky hairs that I really obsess the most over, especially on the left side of my head.
I definitely have a more dominate side but my whole hair is a problem.
I have been following a woman on Facebook for awhile, she’s an animal lover and she has trichotillomania too.
She’s also the distributor for a hair care line and her live videos and posts had me intrigued a bit.
I relate to A LOT of what she is saying and so when she speaks about her hair care products she sells, I listen.
Most of what she shares is not hair care but trich care and self care and I’ve had time to feel out her out and get to know her.
She’s been really inspirational in her videos, and I’ve seen her really handle some stressful situations with amazing grace, she really seems like genuinely good people.
Let’s Talk About People Who Sell Products For A Second…
Here’s the thing about trichsters who sell things, they are not all bad. 😉
“Some people” think that people are just trying to sell us something but that’s really not the case with MOST of them.
In fact, I can’t say one person in the trich community has ever tried to get me to buy something in a pushy manner.
I’ve purchased HabitAware bracelets from a trichster like me and I love her, I love her company and I love the product.
It was expensive, I spent over $300 bones on those babies…
Did she make money off it, probably, but it doesn’t matter because that product helped me SO MUCH!
I’m glad I bought it. I’m glad I bought it from her.
I think some people are very quick to judge anyone selling something in the BFRB circle but I actually welcome product suggestions when it’s tasteful and in a helpful manner.
There’s a lot of good products out there being sold by good people who are doing it because they believe their product can help others.
I reached out to a friend of mine in the non-toxic business and asked her about these hair care products this woman is selling.
To my surprise she told me that she had been using them herself for over two years! 😮
I had no idea because I had never really talked hair care with her in the past but I knew that if a product wasn’t good for me, Stacy would know.
With her blessing, last month, I had the other woman send me some samples of her hair care products.
These were decent samples too, there was enough in that sample for at least three washes.
It Was Love At First Wash!
Seriously. I am in love.
It was as though even the texture of my hair had changed in that 20 minute shower I just took.
And talk about easy to manage, wow, I straightened it afterwards and it was such a breeze.
AND as if all that wasn’t enough to sweep me off my feet – my normally greasy head, didn’t get greasy until around the 4th day.
I went 4 days without washing my hair and I never do that.
Normally I wash it everyday, if I straightened it, I would go 2 days max.
The oils coming out of my scalp would drive me so crazy I couldn’t last longer than 2 days or I would seriously go crazy.
That’s not the case with this shampoo.
I went 4 freaking days without feeling like a grease ball (and that was without any dry shampoo at all).
I messaged the woman that sent me the samples after my second wash and told her I had to have it, what was it going to cost me?
Was I going to have to sell my kidney to afford this?
I ain’t even gonna tell you guys what it cost… DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!
I absolutely couldn’t afford it right then and there.
It is NOT cheap guys.
Anyone who buys like MAC or expensive make-up… I get you … I get you…
Nevertheless, I couldn’t afford it and I was so sad.
I was even more DEVASTATED when that sample ran out.
I had to go back to my normal hair care routine. 😥
You have no idea how much whining I did in the bathroom over this.
After two weeks of that misery I was begging my husband to let me spend money we really didn’t have to get this shampoo just so I could feel better.
Of course he said yes, he is so understanding when it comes to me and my bad hair life.
Still, even though he said yes, I was having a hard time parting with the money.
I kept going back and forth, back and forth… have you ever reasoned with yourself like this? Where one part of you really wants something and the other part is telling you why you’re not worth it?
After living and loathing my hair for so long I finally had something that made my hair feel different and I was arguing with myself over whether I should have it or not.
I FINALLY made up my mind that I needed to figure out where this was going to fit in my budget.
I have paid for fancy hair shit before without sampling it only to be disappointed, at least this time I knew I liked it a lot.
A couple days after I decided I was going to make this work so that I could buy it, the woman who sells it reaches out to me their’s this huge sale.
I was going to be able to get like 2/3 MORE hair care products for the same price and a cute bag!!
Would you believe I still had to think about it..? 🤔
You guys, this is a lot of money…💰💰 a girl can’t just be throwing that kinda money around when she isn’t exactly making bank, ya know?
Well, I decided that night, I was worth it!
I knew would regret not buying this product at this deal because I was getting SO MUCH MORE.
I wouldn’t have to buy hair care stuff for like a year if I got this deal.
It took me time to decide, I didn’t rush into it but in the end I just couldn’t live without that shampoo in my life.
I’m glad I waited too, because I got a TON of stuff. 😀👇
Today, I’m the proud owner of this massive haul of hair care products.
Did you see that? It was the sun shining through the clouds and angels were playing harps.. 😂
No seriously, I’m so gitty about this.
I’ve been feeling a little down lately because of stress in my business and well this was a much needed happy moment.
Did I Mention This Month Is My Birthday Too?
So it’s sort of an early birthday present 🎁 to me..by sort of, I mean because I still expect presents…
I got so much stuff you guys!!
I even got some new hair supplements, and of course they have biotin. 😍
I’m going to keep you updated on how it’s going but I’m already over the moon about my purchase.
I have purchased so many different shampoos in my life and I’m always disappointed…. not this time!
Sometimes You Have To Do Things For You
It took me awhile to buy these, so please don’t think I don’t get it, I do.
I paced my house for days over my Keen Bracelet purchase and that cost me more than these did…
Paying for self care is not selfish in any way.
What Is It That Would Make You Feel Good?
Maybe it’s not shampoo or hair care but whatever it is, I promise you are worth it.
