For international students, moving to a new country with a different language and culture takes a big adjustment and relearning of social cues. One of the biggest worries as a black international student is whether or not you will find beauty products that cater to your hair texture and that understand your skin. In my home country I had centered my skin and hair care routine around products that I couldn’t find in any USA store. This meant I needed to start the daunting search for new products that would be compatible with my skin and hair type. I didn’t really know what would work on me or have any reference point.
