The £30 Budget: Black Owned Hair Product Challenge!
By Hair Advisor UK
Say Yes To Black Owned!
We already know buying hair care products can be expensive and with the increasing acknowledgement of some of our favourite black hair brands not being black owned, there has been a shift in support for our own! Supporting black owned ensures we help to strengthen local Black economies.
As part of the #HAHairBudget campaign we’ve already been able to budget £10.00 for our hair care needs, however with a £30 budget how many black owned products could our Co – founder Sharon buy! We put her to test to prove that black owned brands aren’t as expensive as we think!
Now for the hunt! Doing your research to ensure a hair care black is owned is pretty easy! Basically “Do Your Googles!” and never assume! There is no rule book on how to spot if a brand is black owned but rather do your own investigation.
Now with £30 my aim was to grab a shampoo, leave in conditioner, oil and a moisture
