She made herself look greedy with the price hike then turns around and makes herself look arrogant by making that statememt....BOO!!!! two thumbs way down.

I wonder about other ladies though, if there was a sale that made the pricing more palatable, would you buy?

Personally, once my stash is done, I'm done, unless I absolutely cannot find a good carrotseed bar replacement because it's really been helping my skin. LOL!!

Guess I will be waiting for Black Friday to find my new staples. Although I already love Oyin's Whipped Pudding as a replacement for the Coco latte mask.

If you buy more than one item send them an invoice request to combine shipping (they only have an eBay store). Their customer service is great.

But I would hurry because all of the outside vendors have increased their prices, if they are still selling AfroVeda at all.

That's one of the benefits of being a PJ...you don't get upset when you have to drop a company.

I can buy some regular raw shea or mango butter for less than $10 and use that on my hair at night w/ some hemp seed oil.

I was able to get a few products from outside vendors before their prices went up and now I'm done. The only reason I even got those was to keep in my freezer as a back up of when all else fails. My hair is fickle and one day it loves Oyin and the next day it wants AfroVeda or Qhemet.

Sorry but I can''t support BS businesses that screw people over.

That's like someone calling me a Dumb *itch to my face while I still come back for more. No thanks.

I love the air brush classes and the TV classes. The bridal is pretty good too, it's more natural looks
