11 Natural Hair Must-Haves for $1!

I’m sure you guys are tired of reading about Dollar Tree, but this store has some GREAT things for people with relaxed, natural and transitioning hair. Over the years I’ve purchased a lot of my everyday hair essentials from there because why not get what I need for a dollar? This way I won’t have any qualms when something gets lost or breaks which happens quite frequently. Since I love deals and sharing them with you all, I came up with a list of my natural hair essentials for only one dollar. Please note that you can find everything in-store and online!

Bobby/hair pins | Talk about a life saver! These things will help save any hair style but they get lost quite easily. Thankfully you can get a 72 count of flat bobby pins at my fave spot!

Elastic Headbands | Elastic headbands have easily become a staple in my hair accessories collection because they are great for putting my hair into puffs. They’re also great for pulling your hair back when your bangs decide to act up, like mine do quite frequently.

Spray bottle | Another life saver! Spray bottles always come in with the clutch. I use them for setting lotion, water for refreshing my hairstyles, and a conditioner mix when I have braids. Using a spray bottle definitely helps saving time, and you won’t have to continuously run your sink/shower for water.

Butterfly clips | I don’t know about you but I have to use at least 6 clips when doing my hair. If they’re the same type, probably not, but I like to feel organized and these help when I section my hair off. You can purchase a four pack of white/black or multi-color (what I usually get) at the dollar store which is better than what you could get them for at Sally’s Beauty – and I love shopping at Sally’s.

Shower caps | I think this is quite self explanatory but if it isn’t… these keep your hair from getting wet in the shower. And you can use them while deep conditioning to maintain the moisture. Luckily, these come in a multi pack so they’re great for traveling and groups of people.

Detangling Brushes | On one of my latest trips I noticed that they’re selling dupes for the Tangle Teezer style detangling brush and I know those are super popular. I have one from Sally’s and I can’t live without it.

Goody Ouchless Hair Elastics | Ponytails, mini-pineaplles and everything in-between. I use them for so much, and they’re also another item like bobby pins that go missing super quick.

Combs | Well this one seems self explanatory also. You can purchase singles or a multi-pack with the hair pick, my personal favorite. When I buy this I’m able to give the ones that I don’t particularly use to my parents/friends.

Satin Bonnets | Cover your hair. Protect your hair. Love your hair! And what better way to do that than with a bonnet at night? I’m telling you, this is a top priority. They also sell satin pillowcases!

Hair Gel

V05 Shampoo & Conditioner | A cheap but good buy! I’ve used their various lines on and off for years and they’ve never steered me wrong!

I hope this list is beneficial and inspires you to take a gander down the hair/beauty isles at your local Dollar Tree.

The Best Makeup for Back to School | Under $20

Getting up and going to class can seem like such a tedious task especially if it’s super early in the morning. From experience I can tell you a few things that will make it better; having a easy morning routine and a cute outfit waiting to get worn. To help with your makeup routine I decided to put together a list of my go-to drugstore items that can create a beautiful full face of makeup. And no you don’t have to wear a full face of makeup everyday, I surely don’t have the time for that LOL.
