I used to pay for Moroccan Oil, but I found a really good Aragan oil with Hawaiian Silky. Miss Jessie’s? No way, I was given a sample and my hair did not like it at all. I haven’t tried the others, but if I like it then I will buy it until I find a cheaper version that does just as well, but if not then I’ll stick with the pricey one and hopefully they have a loyalty card or something like that, so I get a discount.

You forgot the Kinky Kurly line. Do I think its worth it? No. Do I use it? Yes in the winter. Am I looking for a product just as effective and inexpensive? Yes, and I’ll let you know when I find it.

Miss Jessies is just wrong. The price is ridiculous, the products dry out my hair and are full of awful ingredients and they are expensive to boout.

Nope. Not unless they were gifted. Because one thing I have learned after all these years of being natural is that there is no magic product but there are “magic” techniques. If a person makes changes to their cleansing (frequency, poo/no poo), conditioning (frequency, steaming, heat therapy cap, overnight) , strengthening plus/minus moisturizing; and they find what their hair needs then even a good old cheapie product will seem like magic. Start looking at the top 10 ingredients for all these hair products and you will find lots of crossover, so no magic/luxury, i believe strongly in technique 🙂

Miss Jessies? Ab.so.lutely. NOT. The main ingredient is mineral oil which is fine but it is CHEAP. You can get a gallon for like six bucks. So why am I paying 22 for a few ounces? Ojon. I have when I was relaxed but don’t know if I’ve used it since going natural. They are good products though…so maybe? Devacurl and Ouidad. No. Wen. No. It’s a cleansing conditioner, a co-wash. I’ll stick to my TJs Nourish and Aussie Moist. If I really want to try it, I’ll use the Sally’s knock off. Morracanoil. No. Again for the mineral oil reason.… Read more »

At this point what I have been using works for me which is Shea Moisture. I love what they stand for helping disadvantage women realize a brighter future. Although I would like to know how exactly they do that. I would pay the price of one of the brands above if they were giving back or doing something similar but I just can’t especially since most of these products on the list aren’t even “natural” and free of silicones and etc.

I have tried all of the Aveda line, minus the shampoo. I use to work for a spa so at the time, I was getting everything at about half those prices. Although they are higher priced, I don’t consider them higher quality. This is not a line for someone who is protein sensitive as every product contains wheat protein. The conditioner has absolutely no slip!! I had to add olive oil on top of it and then had to use the shower stream to help after that. Mind you I already detangled outside of the shower but like to do… Read more »

I love Aveda’s products, they’re one of the few haircare lines that I’m willing to splurge on every once in a while. I’ve tried Moroccan Oil before, I like the consistency of it, but it’s just too pricey to keep in my regular product rotation. Miss Jessies. HAH. They fooled me once, never again. Ojon’s restorative hair treatment was nice, but not worth the price imo. I may revisit it one day in the future, the last time I tried it was when I was relaxed which was almost 6 years ago. It may work differently now that I’m natural. Smells great… Read more »

Heck naw. I “splurged” on the Giovanni mask for $10. Perhaps if my hair didn’t thrive with anything else…and I got a free sample..and my hair loved it…maybe then I would shell out the money. I’m doing quite well combining natural ingredients that I have at home anyway with cheaper brands that last forever and have very similar ingredients to the pricier brands anyway.

I have to give Miss Jessie’s a little credit for being revolutionary. I mean who else would’ve thought to whip up a batch of hair cream using only a blender, some Vaseline®, a little baby oil and a packet of grape Kool-Aid? Then to sell it for $48? Pure genius.

I dont use Miss Jessie’s hair products; that stuff is basically just expensive perfume for your hair. I’ve never experienced benefits from using it.

The argan oil is probably real deal, though. Due to the low yield of harvesting it from the source and how its stored, it has a higher price point than other oils.
The junk oils that are proliferate in the natural hair market make my stomach turn. I’d rather pay a decent price for a high quality, natural product when it comes to my hair.

I find that Camille Rose Naturals, Karen’s Body Beautiful, and Mixed Chicks are expensive, but I usually try to wait and get them when they are on sale. I hadn’t tried Carol’s Daughter in the past because of the price, but hopefully I will try her line in Target soon.

I’ve only used the Deva line (2 years ago) and I can definitely say it wasn’t worth it. I’m an admitted product junkie and, while I love trying new things, I’m not breaking the bank for lousy ingredients (Miss Jessie’s *coughs*). Now, as opposed to when I first became a product junkie, I try to stick to small businesses with reasonable prices and low shipping rates and discounts are a MUST!

I use a few products from Miss Jessie’s line. Currently I use the multicultural curls, it’s a pretty good product but I think the pillow soft curls is better. It gives my curls great definition without the crunchie feeling some products leave and minimal shrinkage. Is it worth the Price?? Until I find something similar…Yes!

It’s relative, right? If you can afford it, it’s not pricey. We don’t all have the same salary.

I can’t afford these prices, but I know people who think they’re cheap. And I know people who think all the cheaper products some naturals mention they must have in order to leave the house add up to being ridiculously expensive. If they work and you like them *big shrugola*

You missed the last line, “If they work and you like them”.

Ultimately some people think MJ’s is junk and others think it’s fabulous. So differing definitions of “worth” regarding ingredients, packaging, quantity and marketing are subjective. Also, housing prices fluctuate based on all sorts of factors.

I’ve been using the Ojon Damage restorative treatment in a jar (not shown) for 3 years. It is the only one out of all of these pricey items that I use and trust.
It is recommended that you use it as a pre-poo treatment, but I use it as a midweek treatment for my ends. It penetrates hair strands and nourishes them. Due to the price I use it sparingly but it works for me!

Ouidad humidity gel is the only product from these lines that I splurge on and us worth it to me. I made a sample size (3 oz) last years because I use it more as a serum, mixed in my hands with conditioner or curl cream. Sometimes I’ll add a cheap gel on top, but it works great (in GA and Caribbean humidity) even without it! My hair is 8–12 inches, so it’s not short.

Don’t sleep on the Aveda products. I didn’t care for the Be Curly line, but their Damaged Remedy line is awesome. The shampoo is THE most hydrating, luscious shampoo I have ever stumbled upon and the deep conditioner leaves my hair feeling like soft, clean hair. It is expensive, I manage to get about 10 shampoos out of one bottle and 4 conditions out of the conditioner.

The Damaged Remedy line is what brought my hair out of its dry, rebellious phase. I had tried many of the popular lines, SheaMoisture and Herbal Essence and they didn’t do anything for me.

Hi RHC, I would describe my hair as all of the 4a/4b and 4c categories as well, but all of the textures have dryness in common. If my hair was straight it would be past my shoulders, but I don’t straighten it (I don’t know how to) so I always do the two-strand twist out and depending on humidity/twist size, my hair can be huge and brush my shoulders or it can be short, just past my ears. I’ve tried the water porosity test and the hair just floated on the water, but sank when I pushed on it, so I… Read more »

I began my natural journey using Ms. Jessie’s products but stopped immediately because they were very drying to my hair. I use Aveda Blue Malva shampoo to keep my gray hair silvery. This works wonderfully and is worth every penny. I used Wen, it was okay but I didn’t like being locked in to their ordering system and the results on my hair weren’t great enough to keep me coming back. The rest I haven’t and won’t try because of the cost and I can keep my hair healthy with less expensive products.

I LOVE Oyin Handmade. Usually buy direct from local hair shows in the DMV area but am really excited to check Target. Juices and Berries is EVERYTHING. In what city / metro area did you find Oyin at Target

They sell it at the targets in Baltimore. Not sure if that’s mainly because the products are made here by a husband and wife.

If the product works on your hair, then yes pay $$$ for just use it sparingly. Try finding the product on sale BOGO, bulk, trade show Natural hairshow or going out of businesses sale. I bought the $20 small Moroccan oil but it is so worth it and it goes a long way because I use very little.

I have tried Miss Jessies products but they are a bit too heavy for me and I am not too sure they are really that great for your hair. I love the Moroccan Oil line but can not afford on the reg…but I buy every once in a while as a little treat. The Wen line I used when I was relaxing my hair and it worked wonders…I have never used on my hair in its natural state. I may try it again one day.

A standard shampoo, conditioner and DC. Water + glycerin mix, olive and sometimes ors girls lotion. Has never failed me yet. I find these ‘natural’ lines, unnecessary and extra. Hair should not break the bank. A vacations or 2 yes. ????

With Wen, you get about five days of good hair days before it goes crazy again. Plus when you order from the number or the website from the infomercial, they send you new stuff every 30 days on the dot, so product could pile up of you don’t go through stuff quickly.
Miss Jessie’s, I love. I don’t think I’ve used her whole line, but what I’ve tried was very good. I’ll have to talk my mom into trying some more of her products.

I would splurge on some of the Moroccan products.…especially the argan oil. Shea Terra Organics also sells a really good brand of argan oil

I love Devacurl’s Heaven in Hair

I’ve tried the DevaCurl line, several products from there. It’s my splurge worthy brand. I like to alternate between cheaper brands. And DevaCurl needs to start having Black Friday sales. Real talk. Also, I liked some products more than others: — The No Poo smells like cleaning products. Will not repurchase even though it performed well. I prefer the As I Am to Co-Wash. It’s cheaper and smells better and performs well. But I hate the packaging. I also like to use Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle to co-wash. — The One Condition is nice. Great moisture and slip, but… Read more »

Thank you for the mini-reviews 🙂 I’ve been curious about this line but didn’t want to invest the $$$ only to find that my hair doesn’t like the products.

No, I haven’t tried any of them expensive products…&& don’t think I ever will. SheaMoisture products, Tropic Isle Living products, basic Shea butter, EVOO, coconut nut oil, and avocado oil work just fine for me. and my frugal lifestyle.

I use As I Am product line.….it’s pretty pricey IMO, but great stuff for sure. Not sure why As I Am wasn’t listed.…

Pricey but no where near as expensive as those brands.

It’s not necessary to spend a ton of money on these products. There are so many inexpensive products out there that offer the same results. You just have to go through trial and error. I have used Wen in the last, but you can find it much cheaper if you search the web.

I think its ok to treat our hair kindly with the right products, but what’s happened now is these manufacturers have hiked up product prices because relaxers are out for many women. They’re jumping on the band wagon and found a way to rip us off, we’re being fleeced big time. Just like everything else try not to over spend on things you won’t use for long, get sample sizes to try them out. If you like them have a budget and try and stick with it.

I make my own sealant using Naptural85 recipe. I think soon all shampoos and conditioners will be sulphate free,one retailers start responding to buyers and when that happens I’ll buy the cheap ones. The prices for black hair products are extortionate.

Hello All! I have been using DevaCurl now for the past 2–3 years. I was using something called Curl Keeper (its purple and keeps your hair super moisturized). I was finding that my hair was getting too oily with that product and that is why I switched to DevaCurl. DevaCurl is expensive, but it works for me. I use the NoPoo as “shampoo” first — completely rinse it out. And then I use the One condition — I section my hair — while completely wet and apply the one condition. After applying to all sections I spritz again with water… Read more »

If it works..I say go for it!. I feel that brands like Aveda, Mizani, etc. have always catered to natural hair in some shape or form. And I’m not going to lie, the expensive stuff plays well with my hair ( even the organic, expensive brands as well).

These product prices are ridiculous and take advantage of the black consumer. We spend more money on hair products than anyone so these companies try to see how far they can push us. Shea Moisture is far more natural as most of the listed brands contain phenoxyethanol and other irritants and sensitizers which is not good. Miss Jessie’s is the only one I was curious about trying but I won’t because the price is ridiculous. We complained about Shea moisture’s salon professional line price range of 19.99–29.99 and rightfully so. Why do these products get a pass for these ridiculous… Read more »
