When I decide to try a new product, it's usually because the product I was using has been discontinued, or so I can alternate between a variety of products. It's usually the former, though.
After trying the new product, I always say out loud, "Why didn't I discover this sooner?!"
I've also discovered that it doesn't matter what hair type the product is catered towards, if the right ingredients for my hair are there, and in the proper order, it will work for me.
So, I'm always willing to step out of my comfort zone to try new products. How about you?
