With all these recent mishaps with online indie companies, I need to prepare to purchase more hair products on the ground.

You are so right about that. I think I see a trip to the BSS and health food store this weekend.

They arrived a few days ago...I've been using them and I posted in the Enso thread.

I'm not even really mad that my Super Buttercreme separated. It still works awesome...I did have to take it off my HG list though.

Since I'm in love with my EVCO and the JBCO xtra Dark is too thick for me. I decided to mix them (with more EVCO than JBCO) with rosemary drops and I shook the bottle.
The issue now is that it seems like coconut oil is coming out instead of the castor. Hmmm. weird...

Ugh these companies and their outrageous shipping times is beyond me. If I placed an on 5/9 for Jamila Henna why is it 5/25 and I still don't have my stuff? Even if it was coming directly from the fields of Pakistan I would have it h*ll.

When I do my rollersets and can't wet my hair I use Hollywood Beauty Olive Creame Hairdress for Dry hair. It's works really well for me. It's super cheap. No mineral oil and no cones.

Naturalista Cosmetic's PHd spray is...insane. I need a case of it...a case.


Saravun Skin and Haircare:
Okay...first off, I ordered the Broccoli Hair Butter, and got it two days after. Great. Secondly, she included samples...one sample is the Twist and Braid Balm.

I spent $6.25 + shipping on a jar of butter, that's listed as 1.85 ounces, but it's more than that, and it's filled to the brim. It's unscented, so I can use on top of my moisture sprays/lotions, to seal.

Now, what's my point? I wonder why Mala, at Afroveda won't drop ONE sample, or give you free shipping (unless she decides to go against the norm), when you drop $100 +. That's why EVERY SINGLE TIME I'm tempted to fall off the wagon with her, I pull it together.

Had to toss the Botanical Spirits "Cheesy Feet" deep conditioner. I couldn't take it. I'm usually good with not-so-great smells, but that was for the birds.

I need to get at least 2-3 inches cut. My hair has been hanging around BSL for too long and just may need a new start.

It's sad that I realize I need to get my eating disorder in check once my hair starts falling out. *Sigh* It was a pretty big wake up call though.

Sorry to get all personal on ya'll.

Is this the coconut one? Seems like mine is the only one smelling like coconuts.
