Very good point.

ETA: Now that I think about it, it is the only they can afford to have a sale. Not just Hairveda but other c ompnies. They get the bulk bases at a cheaper price the more they order and then they pass those savings down to the consumer. It sounds sexier to say your waiting for "handmade" products though. LOL.

Isn't it sad how these companies have been preying on the natural hair community, and it took Afrovedagate to officially expose these suckers?!?!? But the problem is who will be willing to purchase these products substitutes in bulk (especially PJs)?! The conveniece of these shops is what continues to lure business/customers. It'll be interesting to see how long this "boycott" lasts.

Another thought,how much does Afrovedagate impact the integrity of other haircare brands that we've come to know and adore?!?! How much more will we as consumers investigate and research a product's ingredient list before we take the plunge?!?!?!

Another thought, isn't the FDA about to regulate this industry (the homemade/internet products) with tighter rules, restrictions and requirements?!?! It's about time I think especially with all this BS going on.

I think it's a shame because now other online companies will probably also lose alot of customers now that their source is revealed. I am going to buy the gallon sizes of conditioner from Essential Wholesale. I would love to experiment and start my own private label one day. This whole textbook fiasco Has taught me what NOT to do when owning a business.

BTW a few of these vendors are on Etsy claiming their products are handmade. That's a bit shady as well. I won't name them cuz I don't want to hurt their business, just sayin.

I am not sure if Mala was just not business saavy or greedy, but either way she brought this wrath on herself.


Just like many black boys who aspire to be basketball players and rappers, many people in the black owned businesses don't find it necessary to LEARN the business. You should take classes, read every book you can find, along with conducting thorough research before you begin to even think about opening a business.

I am feeling like natural hair products are becoming a dime a dozen much like cupcake and frozen yogurt shops. You have to really stand out and be spectacular to be generating profits these days.
Yall need to have my back when the Hairveda stans come for me...cause the Whipped Cream yall aint gonna like where it comes from and what is REALLY in it. Cause she isn't listing the full ingredients of the base.

The ladies over there pretty much had a freakin fit whenever people (including me) would get mad at Hairveda for sending products 4 weeks after we paid for our items. If you search the old "I'm in love with Hairveda" thread from Nov-Dec 2008 these women were e-ganging up on us LMFAO about how we have to wait, these items are hand made, we either need to have patience or buy stuff from CVS. It really turned me off and I stopped ordering from Hairveda. I did place an order in Sept and I will finally receive my products this week, exactly a month later.

I found out about the bases about 9 months ago and made a decision to just make my own stuff at home. It curbed my PJism big time. If items are really made at home I will wait, no problem. But once I found out at the reason why it would take so long is because these items needed to be placed with a warehouse first and THEN my stuff would be shipped... just doesn't sit well with me.

I'm one of those people that bought in bulk last year and will continue to do so. I bought a 16 oz bottle of avocado oil last year and I use it all the time. I still have about 7 oz left and this was purchased 11 months ago. Even if you just buy the base and a few oils while you wait for your products to arrive (this is what I do sometimes) its definitely worth it.

I know i know, I paused when I found it...because of what this was gonna do to people who use it and love it. Especially those who shun PETROLEUM and PARABENS which apparently are the secret ingredients... It's a shame the small business owners can't be honest about what they sell, manufacture, re-package,etc.

The middle man definitely isn't necessary now with the exposure, but again, bulk product purchases aren't in a PJ's repertoire, IMO!!! Wouldn't it be a waste of money to purchase in bulk, only to purchase the next big hair craze?!?! *I don't want this to become an argument over PJs now, so please let's not take this to another level*

I'm divided on this issue.

The entrepreneurial me says, "Well, don't people spend money on bottled water when they can just get it from the tap?" Some bottled water is said have up to a 4000% markup and many times comes from the same municipal source as your kitchen water. You may get a few extra minerals and vitamins thrown in.

But the other more realistic, consumer savvy me says, "Wow! You ladies are saving me a lot of money! It's like buying the designer imitation vs. the real perfume - but better (because sometimes the imitation smells nowhere near the original). THANKS TO ALL YOU SMART WOMEN!

Now if only I could find a base for the original formula of Miss Jessie's, or an "aqueous extract...." base of KCCC - I'd be set! I'd buy a house with the savings!

The ladies over there pretty much had a freakin fit whenever people (including me) would get mad at Hairveda for sending products 4 weeks after we paid for our items. If you search the old "I'm in love with Hairveda" thread from Nov-Dec 2008 these women were e-ganging up on us LMFAO about how we have to wait, these items are hand made, we either need to have patience or buy stuff from CVS. It really turned me off and I stopped ordering from Hairveda. I did place an order in Sept and I will finally receive my products this week, exactly a month later.

I found out about the bases about 9 months ago and made a decision to just make my own stuff at home. It curbed my PJism big time. If items are really made at home I will wait, no problem. But once I found out at the reason why it would take so long is because these items needed to be placed with a warehouse first and THEN my stuff would be shipped... just doesn't sit well with me.

Isn't it sad how these companies have been preying on the natural hair community, and it took Afrovedagate to officially expose these suckers?!?!? But the problem is who will be willing to purchase these products substitutes in bulk (especially PJs)?! The conveniece of these shops is what continues to lure business/customers. It'll be interesting to see how long this "boycott" lasts.

Another thought,how much does Afrovedagate impact the integrity of other haircare brands that we've come to know and adore?!?! How much more will we as consumers investigate and research a product's ingredient list before we take the plunge?!?!?!

Another thought, isn't the FDA about to regulate this industry (the homemade/internet products) with tighter rules, restrictions and requirements?!?! It's about time I think especially with all this BS going on.

Why give up the control?

Not asking you, but just sayin'.

The middle man definitely isn't necessary now with the exposure, but again, bulk product purchases aren't in a PJ's repertoire, IMO!!! *I don't want this to become an argument over PJs now, so please let's not take this to another level*

To each their own though.
