Tip Tuesday #8: Save with Samples!

When I started my natural hair journey, I went a little (a lot) product crazy! I watched so many YouTube videos and read blogs and forums that fed my product addiction. I was constantly searching for the perfect product. Unfortunately, quite a few hair companies that cater to kinky/curly hair can be on the expensive side. Keep reading to see how you may be able to save some money!


Most companies have some sort of sample program. In fact some of the bigger companies like Miss Jessie’s and KeraCare give free samples. All it takes is you asking. I was able to obtain free good-sized samples on KeraCare products by simply emailing. It wasn’t listed anywhere on their website, but I heard from a haircare forum that they gave free samples out, so I took a chance and emailed them.

Other companies might not give free samples, but may sell sample sizes. For example, one of my favorite companies, Curl Junkie, has different sets of samples that may be purchased for $12-$17. Of course, you will end up paying more money per ounce, but it saves you in the long run if you don’t like the product.

If you know of any other companies that offer free samples via their website, list it down below!
