You got some of my favorites! It's so easy to spend a lot...it all looks so tempting! My first CurlMart purchase was around $100. My most recent one was around $35 - yes, I used restraint!

Thank you! Yes, definitely give it time...it took me forever to find the right combo of products and application (and I'm still not where I want to be!!).

Here's a link to my journal with my routine:

Sorry - don't mean to guano, but I have a question for Abstar.

I read your journal because I love your hair and I think our hair texture and length is similar.
So you use leave-in conditioner only. No condish after you wash or water rinse? Do you ever use a regular conditioner? Hmmm. . .that may help my frizzies.
TIA

I usually try to wait until I run out of several things and have one big order. I like to get the freebies, so I try to wait until I'd spend $75. That seems like a lot, but I don't place CurlMart orders often, so I think it evens out.

Gosh, I vary a lot. Now that I have a rountine in place, I'm not so quick to experiment with new products. I try to wait until I have a couple of things to order, so I can maximize shipping costs.

bostonwaves...I co-wash every other day or so and sometimes I leave that in for a bit, all depends on how dry my hair is at that time. In general my hair needs a lot of conditioner. I always, always use a leave in. Hope I answered that correctly!

Thanks for your response Ab-Star.

My big purchases were my whole Jessicurl line and the whole Deva line.
Now I just pick up 2 or 3 items every 6 weeks or so, running about $20-$40 either to replace Jessicurl or deva stuff that I ran out of or to try something new.

I've recently purchased Boots and BRHG. I'm also waiting for Recoil and Joiwhip to arrive. I was trying to be so good sticking with just Jessicurl, but the dry weather has really changed the texture of my hair. I feel like I'm starting from scratch.

Whenever I buy from CurlMart it is usually anywhere between $20-50. I like to buy more than one of whatever I buy.

I put $60-100. When I buy I usually am stocking up so will buy liters of stuff or some B&A gel which is a little pricey. The same goes when I buy from Jessicurl, I usually stock up by buying liters.
