Now I am trying to keep my products to 90% all natural. But when it comes to getting that you can only find  the majority of all natural products online. At stores like target & walmart there is such a limit. This is only to where I live now because in Baltimore walmart had a whole section dedicated to ethnic hair care products. Now some natural hair makers have deals on shipping like Obia Natural Hair care has a flat rate for shipping which is 2.99$ and then TGIN has free shipping on all of there full size products which is a steal. So I am trying to do a mix where I get my products from the store an online to try my best in helping small business owners. But still sticking to products that I know works for my hair. But the problem is the product junkie in me loves so many different things that it is had for me to just choose only a few. But I will continue to update so check back.
