Growing out super short cut

High porosity, fine, unknown curl type, somewhere in the 2s at the moment
Mostly low poo
Current rotation includes:
Wash: Yes To Carrots -Condition: Yes to Cucumber, Nature's Gate Jojoba, One C - Stylers: Deva volumizing foam, Deva UDG B'Leave In, Foxy Curls Hi-Def Curl spray
Maybe Etsy closed her down due to the slowness of the service recently.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG. Past bra strap length heading for waist.

CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen
Treatments: Komaza Care Matani, coconut/ sweet almond/ fractionated coconut oils, Hairveda Sitrinillah
Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss Ultimate Volume, various Elvive
Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Au Naturale styling gelee
Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
Experimenting with: benign neglect
Well that's a bummer, I messaged her over a month ago, and have been patiently waiting all this time to get her feedback before I ordered the mudd..... not sure if I should have just went ahead and ordered (though maybe then I would have never gotten it) or if I am glad I waited because I may never see it. Ugh.
My Hair:
2c
Fine, low porosity, med/high density
BSL - going for mid back to waist

HG: currently
just washing with a low poo that contains protein (Alba Naturals Coconut) and using Suave Naturals Coconut as both a RO and LI. No stylers right now, but this gives me pretty good curl, definition, low-ish frizz, and it feels and looks good. Also an occasional PT (liking the Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula which has cones) seems to be key for me.

You really don't want to order from her anyway. Her service is terrible.
I've been patiently waiting too for over a month Etsy just sent me an email telling me

We are sorry to inform you that the seller is no longer eligible to sell on Etsy. As the seller has not shown any indication that they will resolve this issue, we have closed this seller's shop. They will not be eligible to sell on Etsy until they have resolved this case.

If you haven't yet, we recommend you contact PayPal.

Thank You,

Etsy Trust & Safety
So I just opened a case with Paypal. Guess I will have to learn to make my own okra gel!
thanks for letting me know

I'm thinking along the same lines as you, need to figure out how to make this myself

Well I'm going to be pretty simple and see how it goes. going to just add in a preservative, oil for smell, aloe, and see what I get.

Have to actually find okra first though!
Theres a thread..So excited. Made a perfect batch of okra gel today... Discussing recipes on how to make your own..I've been doing it for couple months now b/c of BB ordering issues. Its really super easy, I have like 8 bottles in my freezer .

I have low porosity and fine/med texture. Easily weighed down and VERY frizzy crown, with straighter under layers

Hair loves moisture protein.
MUST Pixie diffuse.

My hair dose NOT like oils, butters or polyquats Or glycerin in high dews
Just FYI...you MUST use some sort of thickening agent..or it will not work. This if anything is the most important ingredient to have!!! Besides the okra ...you can buy frozen okra from walmart or publix

What would be a thickening agent? I was just hoping to use more okra and less water
I use guar gum , others use xanthan gum. I believe you can find these in the baking section. Check out the tread going on right now

like corn starch? I have some of that in the cabinet... LOL I'll go look for that thread before I start cooking. Thanks for the help everyone!
I'm in the same boat. I purchased an item from her back on May 15th. No emails, no refund, no shipping info, no response. I just started a dispute on Paypal to try and get my money back. I am more than annoyed.
VERY fine 2B/3A hair
Chin-length - growing it out...again.
If you want to resolve a dispute on paypal faster (and I'm speaking from personal experience), call their # for customer service. If it doesn't work the first time do it everyday and insist on speaking to a manager. You'll get your money back.

I wondered if anyone had heard from Erin?

I ordered gelee around the end of April and anticipated at least a 6 week wait. However, I missed the window of papal restitution for lack of delivery. I contacted her thru ETSY, no reply yet.

This is actually the first time that I have been burned in supporting small businesses so I guess I am quite lucky. I just wanted to make sure I was handling this correctly.

(My next step is to write it off since I loved her products)

Thanks so much for any assistance.
