Your Weekly PJ buys!

Like Tree384Likes

First let me say hi, I'm a newbie and soooo thankful that I found this site. Man, you guys have been a tremendous help. OK, here's my disclaimer: I recently did a BC (less than 1 month ago), and I'm in the process of discovering what my hair likes and what works best. So, with that said, this is what I've bought in the last week or two.

KCCC - It does seem to elongate my curls, but tried this and the ecostyler (each on one half of my head) and I couldn't tell the difference. Not sure I'll buy again.
Eco Styler - see above
KCKT - seems to really just slip in my hair, but I don't like the feeling my hair gets when I put other thinsg in there, a very weird, not sticky, but just weird feeling, which eventually goes away. Works great as a detangler.
MJCP - works great if I want to do shingles. But, I am concerned about the mineral oil content. Should I be worried about using mineral oil, can it be washed out with a low poo?
MJCM - tried it to do my twist-out last night and this morning, yeah, my hair didn't look so good. Actually, this may be the worst hair day ever. Maybe I should use this product alone and not with the KCKT, but man, don't think I'm using this one again.
MJ Strengthing cream
MJ Quick Curls

KBB Hair Milk - just got this in today, tried a bit on my already dried hair (trying twist-outs for the first time), and it felt nice, and oh the moisture, not sure how it will work on my hair when wet.
JCWDCT
JCTS
JCADC
Hairveda Sitrinilla Masque

AO Lavender shampoo
NG Pear (and something else, but can't remember what) conditioner.

What I'm planning on buying today or tomorrow:
Qhemet AOHC
Qhemet OHHB
Qhemet AONP

KBB Luscious Locks Mouisturizing Hair Mask
Hairveda Almond Galze
And some mango butter - I keep hearing people rave about it, so figured I would give it a try.

So far, I'm only gotten 3 or 4 packages and my other half has already started noticing. We get e-mails when they drop off packages for us at the concierge desk, so I should probably find a way to get them to only e-mail me. That way I can sneak my products inside with out him noticing. OMGosh, is it always going to be like this? I tell myself that I'm only obsessed because this is all new to me. I keep saying that I'm not a PJ, but now I'm not so sure. besides, isn't that the first sign...denial!

If you have a larger purse, though you don't have to worry about this. If you placed a big order, you can even put half in your purse and take home one day, and put the other half in your purse to take home the next day.

Oh man, I went to the KBB store in brooklyn today. Sooo many choices but I resolved in my head I just wanted one DC and one hair milk. The customer service was great and I ended up getting the honey oatmeal DC, the sultry sandalwood hair milk, and the coco mango hair butter. I'm excited! No more hair purchases for a while now (I hope)

And My purse is big enough, so I'll just dump them in there and take them home; he won't have the slightest idea.

This definitely made me laugh. I don't even want to know what your stash drawer looks like. Wait, yes I do, post a pic...please.

Wow Nubian...lol. My problem isn't buying, its keeping other people hands out of my stuff. I moved them from the bathroom to a big basket in my closet but it seems to be everyone is going "let me have some hair products" ugh!!!!!! It pisses me off because I want to scream "it was only $5, go buy your own".

AND I KNOW if you touched it cause I have the stash arranged just so! All the shea butter is together, then the conditioners, starting from co washes to leave-ins to DTs, then the multipurpose ones, then the moisturizers and sealants. DON'T TOUCH MY STASH!!!!...Well, that's what I would tell 'em if I was you.

Now that I'm about to do a spring cleaning...in my closet, I'm going to arrange my hair stuff on my shelf in a certain order so maybe if they cant just bend down to touch it won't happen as much. I try being mean with them but sometimes that doesn't work, especially when I'm not here which pisses me off.
