Are There Shortages In Natural Hair Products?With the supply chain issues everyone has been dealing with this year, it seems as though everyone is experiencing shortages. While there is not a specific shortage of natural hair products at the moment, it may take some companies a little longer than usual to restock or ship their products out to you.
How Long Do Natural Hair Products Last?Fun fact: Much like your favorite cosmetics, all hair products have expiration dates. Most hair products designate a number of months you can still safely use the product after it’s been open. Lucky for you, that number is usually printed on the bottom of the product. Simply look for the logo of a jar with an open lid and look at the number printed on the jar.
If your product doesn’t have an expiration date printed on the bottle, there are a few things you should look out for to see if your product is still good to use. First, make sure the smell hasn’t changed. If your product smells a little rancid, it’s time to toss it. Second, look at the color. If the product has begun to change colors, it’s time to buy a new one. Lastly, take a look at the texture. If the texture of the product is completely different from when you first opened it, it’s time to throw it away.
How Much Natural Hair Products Should I Buy?How much hair products you should buy depends on whether you’ve used them before and, if so, how often you use them on your hair. If you’ve never tried the product before, start with one to make sure it agrees with your hair. If this is a product you know, love, and frequently use, feel free to stock up!
