Top 10 Most Overpriced Natural Hair Products

Miss Jessie’s

Miss jessies hair products

This was the first line I tried that really worked for my hair about 7 years ago, and I was hooked on the Curly Pudding. I was spending a ton of cash on it, but at the time it was so worth it. Many Naturals have balked at their super expensive products and in all fairness. In response, they have brought out less expensive items in the past couple of years.

Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding $38 for 16 oz. jar.

Miss Jessies Stretch Silkening Creme $38 for 16 oz. jar.

Miss Jessie’s a Super Soft Styling Lotion Pillow Soft Curls $26.99 for 8.5 oz tube.

Miss Jessie’s Quick Curls $32 for an 8 oz. tube.


Carol’s Daughter

Carols daughter hair products

Another product line that has been around for years and also has bath and body products. The one with celebrity spokespersons for the line, like Jada Pinket-Smith. I have heard great things about this line, but they do run high nonetheless.

Monoi Repairing Hair Mask $22.40 for 7 oz bottle.

Monoi Repairing Anti-Breakage Spray, $16.80 for 5 oz jar.

Monoi Sacred Strenghting Serum, $21 for 1.7 oz bottle.

Hair Milk Original Leave-in Moisturizer, $12 for 8oz bottle.

    The only expensive product I’ve found that works good on my hair is ”as I am” and some “kera care” products….. Miss Jessie’s, carols daughters, and mixed chicks products do nothing

    I love me some WEN. But it most definitely us expensive so I save up and buy the gallons twice a year from QVC.

    Guilty of shelling out the big bucks for carols daughter. But with hair that’s prone to breakage the monoi line is the only thing I’ve come across to combat that

    I use the mixed chick products and found that if can buy the really big bottles on Amazon. I brought like 3 deep conditioners and 2 leave in conditioners for like $80. I still have a bottle of each and I brought them last year.

    I absolutely love Shea Moisture. I’ve been using it from the very beginning (3 years). I’ve tried other products with them but the Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Moisture Retention shampoo, as well as the purification masque are staples. Recently I discovered the Manuka Honey and Manfura Oil Intensive Hydration conditioner and deep treatment masque. They are my new permanent favorites.

    I have yet to use them but Shea Moisture seems to be reasonably priced products! Curls and Hair Rules are on the pricey side.

    Carol’s Daughter works well but its over priced and over rated. There’s other products that work just as well for half the price of Carol’s Daughter

    Thank you all for your Shea Moisture experience….I just started using them and they seem to be the only product that works for my hair. The curling soufflé is a little on the greasy side but I’ll just limit the amt I use. Thanks again

    Love shea moisture. I do the LOC method and uses it. Have my hair perfectly moisturized allll dayy

    See most of the expensive products are black-owned. I wouldn’t mind supporting, but 30 plus dollars for a 5oz of something is really extra to me. I do love how Shea Moisture have the BOGO sales and I would like for others companies to follow with that. And it would actually be so much easier if the prominent products would be in stores too. I really don’t like shopping for hair products on line. Just me though

    I totally agree that these brands are too costly. Lots of products are being introduced on the commercial market and they are available on the ground. These brands need to wise up because the ingredients aren’t much different often times. African Prode and Sof n Fee have some very affordable products.
