In 1906, the great statistician Francis Galton observed a competition to guess the weight of an ox at a country fair. Eight hundred people entered. Galton, being the kind of man he was, ran statistical tests on the numbers. He discovered that the average guess (1,197lb) was extremely close to the actual weight (1,198lb) of the ox. This story was told by James Surowiecki, in his entertaining book The Wisdom of Crowds.
I have always been a firm believer that there is in fact a lot of wisdom in crowds. Somehow as a group, we collectively come to the right conclusion and it’s no different with hair regimens and hair products.
Perhaps if a patient soul analyzed and deduced an average of what all the blogs, magazines and vlogs say about healthy hair regimens, they may just be able to create the perfect regimen.
When it comes to hair products, it would not make sense to purchase every single product that every hair guru swears by, so where are you to start in your quest for you staple product stash?
The best solution of course is to follow the wisdom of crowds and use popular products as pointers on what to try.
So without further ado, here are the top 50 most purchased ethnic hair products of 2013 (stats combined from products purchased via BHI at Amazon.com & Sallys Beauty own stats).
