Alternatives to Afroveda?

Like Tree5Likes

Hi Ladies!!

I just went on AV's website to realize that her 8oz butters now cost close to $22 dollars and her 16oz $36 dollars !!!! I love her butters and hair oils but has she gone mad????? I refuse to pay that much for an 8 oz. I don't care how good her products but that's just insane!

Anyone know of other alternatives to this overpriced line, especially with respect to butters?


I am SO mad and disappointed with Afroveda! UGH!!!!

I would suggest the Shea Moisture line from Target.

OH. MY. GOD. SERIOUSLY?! She's lost it.

AND THE PROCESSING TIME IS STILL 14 DAYS?!

I suggest Komaza, Shea Moisture, Oyin or Donna Marie. Wow that's so ridiculous. I still have Curl Define, Cocolatte and PUR Whipped Gelly from February...I was considering getting more PWG but DEFINITELY not now! Smh.

I'm just so mad because AV was one of my staples. Now I have to find alternatives. *sigh*

Even Qhemet hasn't raised their prices. Why AV?

I just went looked at the website, and her ingredients haven't changed so I'm curious as to why the sudden dramatic price increase. Shea butter don't cost that much in bulk!

There is nothing in her products that justifies charging that much. And then on top of that I've got to wait 14 days for you to make it and with all the customer service issues that people have been posting about lately.......

I'm soooo disgusted right now. Why do most natural hair product companies try and use the Miss Jessies' model for pricing thier products? Is it because we the consumer continue to pay through all the price increases rather than using our wallets to send a message? UGGGHHH!

On top of all that, she's discontinued the 32oz sizes. Even though I never purchased her products, I'd like the know the reasoning behind those drastic changes also. That's a good way to lose your faithful customers.

She changed the ingredients, the jars, the labels, and whatnot , ok so now the prices AND you still dont have it together, psshsh you wont see another nickle of my money.

I was a die hard fan, I promoted her big time but ole well no matter, Im sticking with Qhemet where I know what Im getting is always high caliber and well worth the price


ETA: cause im fuming , oh and dont let me get on that busted azz Seven line as well as BARE and now you trying to sell an emu oil line , cho wah a do this chick????
Why is the hemp seed lock butter now $23.50 for an 8 0z. good grief.

Has anyone ever order from sage naturalseucticals off ebay? They have some afroveda butters for sale.

Did she ever get staff!?!?!?! I know last time she increased the prices she said it was because she was getting staff to decrease shipping time and increase customer response...and NOTHING changed.

In fact, last week the "stylers" tab was missing, so I emailed her and asked if she was still making the PWG (was wondering if she just decided to focus on the butters b/c they are the hot items), and never heard anything about that either. What bollocks.

So now, I'm officially mad and I ain't even ordered anything from her. Lol!! She is charging $25 for the 4-2 oz butter samples. She really has lost what all God gave her. That is re-damn-donkulous!!!

You see that's just outrageous.
I mean when she went from $9 to $12.50 I dropped her because I couldn't take the long turn around and poor customer service and my sis thought I was being harsh but to jump from $12.50 to $22 for whipped shea? I think not

I was about to place an order yesterday when the old prices were up. I wish I had. I will never order from her again. The 32 oz sizes were what kept me from tripping with her order turnaround time.

Ok I know I sell these product but I don't even want to sell these butters at the new prices. It just doesn't seem right to me.

I don't know if it is right for me to even post this but yall know I keep it real and I don't think I'll be restocking once I sell out of the current stock I have.

It's gonna be even harder for me to buy the stock at these prices. Uuuugh!!

I don't know about this one ladies, SMH!

Did she not take into account what jacking these prices up will do to her?

Qhemets isnt even $20 bucks, who does she think she is?? I mean that in the most nonsarcastic way possible??

you think shea butter thats not whipped right , and arrives with oil on the top is worth $20 bucks?

you think cocoabutter smelling like rank vomit is worth $20 bucks??

Really??/ you think that highly of yourself? What idiot is buying up that Seven line? How well did that BARE go over?? REALLYY???


Yo , I'm behind trying to figure out what the deal is.
