Default Oyin Honey Dew and Shipping Costs!

I've read so much about Oyin Hair Dew on this site, and I'm desperate to try it on my parched hair. I'm even willing to buy the larger size to make it "worth it", but according to the shipping estimator, it's going to cost over $11 to ship! =( (I live in California.) Does everybody just suck it up and pay? Do you stock up and get a bunch of stuff at once to make the shipping costs more worthwhile? And in which case, what else would you recommend for very dry, low porosity 4a curls?

Does any other site sell this stuff - with lower shipping costs?

Thanks!

Unless you live in the Baltimore area and can get there when they're open (maybe 1-2 days a week, I hear), then you gotta suck up the shipping costs unless you have connections who can mail it themselves.

Try curlmart. The shipping is about the same but they almost always have some kind of a discount.

11$???? I WISH!

I know i live in Europe and all but come on Oyin: this is just ridiculous!

I bulk buy to make it worth it and just suck it up

I just order like 4 items using a 10% code almostspring2011 and my shipping was 9 bucks I live in Mississippi.
Look for the store locator on their website u may find a store that sales it near you.
That's the reason when I place an order I get everything I need. Plus you want to try the swap and sale boards.
I got a 16 oz and an 8 oz for $25 with shipping.

Argh! Hair Dew is out of stock at Curlmart.

I'm desperate to try it now, but maybe I'll just try to hold out for 3 more weeks to see Oyin does an Easter Sale. They I'll get the Hair Dew and also the whipped pudding I've heard a lot about. If the discount is reasonable, it will offset the shipping. I guess I can't complain too much since the sistah in Europe paid $50+ in shipping. Yikes!

Curlmarrt had a sale last week and I know I purchased two bottles

Personally I like to buy it when they have a sale or from curlmart when they have a sale to offset the shipping costs.

I forget who but someone on this site was talking about hairizon.com and they have free shipping. I plan to try them in the future but as of now personally I cannot speak on shipping and all that but it may be worth a shot.

Also want to add: they do run out of Hair Dew often, but they restock quickly and often. If you have questions, you can always contact them via their Facebook Page or email - they respond (and ship!) quickly...

For me it was worth waiting the extra day to get free shipping. I live in the Northwest and shipping is not joke...

Me too! They are also open to product suggestions, etc. They are fairly new and I hope they can keep up with this free shipping business. Its not getting any cheaper to ship packages these days.

Oh, holy hell, this is what I get for being so impulsive. I want ahead and purchased a 12oz bottle at Oyin, figuring I'd just have to stock up if they have an Easter Sale. Now I come back and read about Hairizon?! (Thank you, by the way.) But ARGH! Darn me and my rash behavior!!!

I just sent and email AND called Oyin to try to cancel my order. I'm not tryin' to pay $7 shipping when I could get the same product for zero shipping. Please.

Oh, and now I remembered to go down the bottom and click "instant email notification" so that I'll know about all these awesome responses and suggestions right away. Duh. ;(

Oh crap! Let me know how it goes with Oyin. Like I said, Harizon does run out of the Hair Dew often, but they are responsive and usually restock in a matter of days. For me its worth the extra wait.

I always stock up when I order from Oyin, so $11 shipping isn't too bad...and I get the 32oz of the Honey Hemp, which isn't available at other online stores.
