What is expensive? What would you call ridiculous for a natural hair product? What you may see as expensive may be just right or rather cheap to another natural. Price is subjective. Everyone has different circumstances and preferences for instance a struggling college student, like my daughter would NEVER pay more than $5 dollars for a hair product.
I on the other hand have no qualms spending $20 for one, but don’t get me wrong I am not rich, nor am I 19. I am, however, willing to pay more for what I think is important.
OK, I am losing focus. Despite price being subjective there was a time, not too long ago, when price really did not matter to a natural. Stay with me here. We had to use what we could find or make, and if there were only a few products on the market that you could use, then you bought them. Point blank.
When I went Natural almost 10 years ago, there was Carol’s Daughter and Miss Jessie’s and Aveda around, or at least they were the ones I was aware of. I was so happy to have ANYTHING that I paid, ANYTHING to have them.
Fast forward to today, and you can find several stellar Natural hair products for under $5 bucks! Now, with so many brands, the law of economics dictates that prices should be driven down overall, but there are still some brands out there that are kind of high; I mean really high, and they are booming!
I am not knocking their hustle, nor am I saying they are not worth the pricey price tag. If my Holy Grail deep conditioner* jumped in price, I would grimace. However, at the end of the day, I would pay for it because it is a good product, and worth the extra cash to me.
Now, I get that price is subjective, and I get that most Natural hair products have become less expensive, but there are brands out there that are higher on the food chain when it comes to price. In all fairness, they tell you why with marketing and reviews. Nevertheless, we are going to share the 10 most overpriced Natural hair products that we think are good, but could knock that price down a tad.
