It’s not easy to keep up with all the products that get developed for the health and care of hair and scalp every week, month, and year - I know, trust me. But thankfully, some of these products are constantly evergreen - their recipe doesn’t change (or at least, it doesn’t dramatically change) over the years, prices remain more or less the same, and overall - the product itself keeps on making millions of customers happy.
If you’ve been our reader for long enough, by now you’re probably well aware of how much we love listicles here, and how I love creating new ones after experimenting with beauty products to review (and spoil my hair with).
However, there’s only so many listicles that you can keep on pushing on our customers. So I told myself to curate a list of items that have kept on going strong in the past few years - no lousy new releases, no TikTok trends: just pure and raw customer-review-based shopping to make a truthful promise to my readers!
If you’re wearing real hair extensions or keeping your mane natural for the time being, these products are guaranteed to work their magic on both. Just make sure you follow the instructions correctly and don’t apply any product on your attachment beads/adhesive strip in case you’re using permanent hair extensions or tape-in hair extensions.
