Is it more expensive to maintain?
Natural hair is not more expensive to maintain. And if you have been getting your hair done professionally, it is substantially less expensive. A common misconception is that you have to use high priced products to care for your chemical free hair. This is not the case. A lot of natural hair care products are already in the kitchen or bathroom. For example, olive oil, shea butter, and caster oil are all fabulous inexpensive items for natural hair.
Just remember, its not only the products you use but the order in which you used them. Which is why i have adopted a simple step by step method for your hair care regimen, I call it the 1-2-3's.
Step 1: Hydrate
Step 2: Protein
Step 3: Oil
