Default Hmmm...

Perhaps we could simply donate products we no longer want/need? Unless one really needs the money from swapping items - it's nice, but not necessary, at least for me - that may be a start. It would be interesting to know exactly how many successful swaps are made on a monthly basis, and how many products linger on the swapboard for weeks, even months, with no response.

Anyway, I think that turning the swap board products into donations seems viable to me.

You know this is interesting. At this time I do donate my products to a shelter for abused women and I also give a few to my hair dresser because she does hair for the womens welfare to work program and she likes to leave the products with the ladies.

I think most of us who are older understand your plight I was 16 and wanted clothes that my parents where not willing to purchase, I wanted braids and my parents flat out said no. In the end I got a job and I worked two days after school in a hair salon as a shampoo girl / receptionist for like $4.75 an hour, when the hours got crazy I worked as a file clerk in a doctors office and then my senior year it was all to much so I worked one day a week in the department store. I still value the lessons I learned, which is patience and to understand my priorities. Working and being in school meant I had to let go of hanging out with my friends to earn a pay check or to do my homework. This benefited me throughout college and even now. To this day I am still choosing, I want to try every product for my hair that runs across this board but I have to pay living expense, my tuition and I work hard so I need a vacation this means the new latest and great product has to wait. The point here is in the end with my job I was able to purchase some of the things I wanted. A bonus is it put me in a different light with my parents. If I wanted to go someplace and buy something they would drive me.

So a few things for you to consider we live in hard times there are a lot of ladies who would like nice hair products but they have children or they are working but their ends are not meeting.This includes college students who have to support themselves. Why would I give it to a young lady who has some options?
Where is your responsibility in this outside of asking me to pay shipping and packaging for these products? By the time I by a box and pay postage I have spent close to $8.00 that is a products on my wish list.

Anyway I like your idea quite a bit actually but I would rather it be for someone who is down on their luck as opposed to someone who has caring parents and are willing to meet them half way. Others my feel differently I just want you to think about what you are asking and who you are asking for.

I do agree with everything you have said and I did hae this whole convo on another hair type section. Some women like teacher thought that donations of used stuff was ok whilst others didn't take too well to the idea let's just say. I had even forgotten about this thread and just hoped it would die I suppose. Thank you for the input ladies but my last convo about this issue left me with a bad feeling about this forum and I simply do no want to debate again so I really just want it this issue to be laid to rest.

Good day :-)
