"OMG I can't believe you spent that much on samples! LOL"

Well, the samples were about 60, and then 10 for shipping. I figure it's a good deal though, I get to try about 25 things for that price. I wouldn't get very many full size products for $60!

Money well spent, I figure

I've been trying to tell yall about this....its the best. Leaves my hair so soft and makes my curls come out more...I love this stuff.

I have finally bought a bottle of Aussie Moist to try and I got some other things but I can't remember. My PJism has slowed to a stop but since this new job starts on monday, catch me at the end of the month, I'll probably buy a whole damn store out!!! LOL.

I really want to get into butters... its like I'm missing out on something. Ever since I started obsessing with the Hairveda's Vatika Frosting, I left my homemade whipped shea butter in the dark, especially how good it smells compared to shea. I think I'll treat myself to some TNS stuff when I get paid.

Oh and my hair has been begging for some PP Henna, damn expensive henna!!!

I am soo happy that it looks like my inner PJ finally has calmed down. I felt like I was going broke trying to figure out what looks.

The only thing I bought was 2 gallons of spring water to make my conditioner and hair cream YEAH

I went to Uncle Funky's Daughter in Houston and bought a cream they make called More Butter. I was looking for something with hold that I could wear on top of my Qhemet's BRBC.

I had bought Uncle Funky's Curly Magic in the past and was not too impressed, but their More Butter was a surprise hit. Good shine and great hold. The smell leaves nothing to be desired.

Just one reason why I had to give that one up. It's like buying a whole other bottle of oil.

Organics Coconut Butter Styling Pomade

I tried to buy some Almond Glaze by Hairveda, but they were sold out.
