What worked for her hair may not work for yours (trial and error of natural hair care products)

I’m in a few matural hair groups on facebook and I always see people asking for reviews about different products. But then you use it on your hair and all the great reviews you got were an epic fail. Why?

We all know that everyone has different hair types and while I have 4c hair,my hair porosity,thinness or thickness of hair, protein sensitive or not can be the major difference why one product may work for me but not work for someone else even though we’re both 4c.

Hair porosity

This is simply your hair’s ability to hold moisture. There’s a simple test of putting a strand of hair in a glass and if it sinks to the bottom you have high porosity (which means your hair probably needs some extrs care to avoid breakage) and if it floats you have low porosity (avoiding proteins is the best option).

Protein sensitive

People with protein sensitive hair have to avoid any products that contain any protein element such as mayo, egg because it will leave your hair extremely dry and feeling stiff.

So as you can see, there are several reasons that even though someone has the same hair type as you, that products will work differently for you. Its definitely a trial and error phase when you’re a new natural as I yet have found the perfect deep conditioner for my hair. But don’t give up….research, research and more research and you’ll find the right product 🙂
