Are you sick and tired of waking up with your hair looking like a toilet brush? Can you not afford a hair stylist appointment or expensive hair care products?
Welcome to the hair problems of a broke college student.
Pricey hair products or expensive hair appointments are not the only ways to have good-looking hair. Your hair can be made flawless with your own hands and here’s how. I am going to introduce you to your new friends: YouTube, drugstore and homemade hair products.
Lesson 1: Not everything works for all hair textures. It may be affordable, but it may not work. Drugstores have a variety of affordable products. I will not advise you to try all since you are limited on cash. But, I will advise you to identify your hair type, you can look it up on Google or YouTube. This will help you know what easy methods and inexpensive products you can purchase for your hair. When you know this, use it as a guide to purchase hair products. Try the following quality and pocket friendly shampoos: Herbal Essences Smooth Collection shampoo and Aveeno Nourish + Moisturize Shampoo. You can also explore other products in their line.
Lesson 2: Do not be afraid to create your own hair products. Kitchen products can also be converted into hair foods. You will find that a lot of great products for your hair are in your own kitchen.
Lesson 3: YouTube is your good friend, especially when you want to do quick styles or learn how to maintain your hair. You need to learn how to do your hair yourself. You are your hair’s 5-star stylist—own it. If you need a guide on what YouTube channel to watch click here for videos from some top YouTube video bloggers.
