It's one of my favorites, too. CurlMart was the only place I've found it in the past--it's where I buy mine. Luckily, I bought several bottles last time.

I contacted Shelly from Curllmart about this, and she emailed me that the company wanted it pulled because it is a professional product for stylists only.

That sucks. Doesn't take a stylist to apply it. It's bogus.

I've been wondering where it was, too. It's great stuff! I've never seen it in a salon. I have 1 bottle. Guess I'll have to make it last...

Wow! I've never used but would be truly upset if it was something I liked and it got pulled!

Has anyone found other online source(s) to buy this? I'd love to try it. Of course, I'm late to the party, as usual.

it's still available at the Elucence website pleasantimage.com. i haven't tried to order it though so i don't know if they would ask for a license # or something since now they're claiming this is a salon only product. that's bs to me. it's just a protein conditioner.

Thanks for posting about that site! I'd forgotten about it but bookmarked it now.

I agree that this is ridiculous. I would understand if it was some sort of hardcore chemical or something, but it's a protein condish.

And I used their website's salon locator. Not a single one within 50 miles. So, even if I wanted to, how am I supposed to get it?

I hope they reconsider and let CurlMart sell it again.

It seems like they would sell a lot more of it if Curl Mart were selling it.

According to the Elucence website, it can be ordered online from a distributor called Pleasant Image. It looks like they carry the entire line of Elucence products.

I just bought this for the first time at the Pleasant Image site. Another poster mentioned she got her Elucence products from there so I had it bookmarked already.

I didn't know it had a fan club! I look forward to using it now.

Thanks for the link! Amazon has it, too, but the shipping is crazy. Then again, I have no idea what the Pleasant Image shipping is.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/?bra...&node=11055981

Can one of you ladies give me an idea of the shipping?

I ordered a liter, the 16 oz Moisture Repair, and 12 oz of Barrier Balm. My shipping total was $12. I think that was reasonable considering how heavy all that will be.

I was going to order another liter and the shipping was $15 before I removed it. HTH

Thank you, that helps.

I noticed they're local to me (So Fla). Their distributing address (in Aventura, FL) is five minutes from me and close to the Whole Foods I frequent.

Wow. Wish I could just go get the stuff there. I hate paying shipping for something SOOOO close.

Their website says you can't pick-up there at the site.

This is one of the samples I got from you and I really like it so hoping they sell it on CurlMart again. How often do you use it? I thought you said you use it if you don't use a PT twice a week and then you'd use the Elucence , is that right?
