Default For all you Activate lovers...

Hi, I was searching online and found this. I am not sure for how long but it seems like you can still get Activate at Walgreens online for under 7.00. Anyhoo, just wanted to let everybody know because like I said I am not sure how long they will do this since the prices went up.

Thank you! Maybe I'll buy some more Straightening Cream, although by now, I've already bought a bunch of other stuff to try and replace it...

ATA, What is the straightening cream good for? I mean, I assume you aren't actually using it for straightening (not that there's anything wrong with that if you are!). I picked up some of the curls cream but haven't used it yet and wonder if I should take it back. Have you ever tried it & is it worth the $6.99?

I'm still seeing Activate on shelves for the old price in my area at Rite-Aid, Target, and one Walgreens.

No, don't worry, I'm not straightening!
I haven't tried the curl cream (you may want to search around, from what I've heard many people didn't like it), but I like the straightening cream. It doesn't really "straighten" my hair, but I find that it does help to smooth and reduce the bulk of my hair, making the curls meld a bit more. It might elongate them a tiny bit, but not noticably, and not usually. It's more of a smoother and slight bulk-reducer.

The price was wroth it for me - I didn't even pay $6.99! At my Ulta, it was appropriately priced (because it's so much smaller than AHC): it was something like $2.98 or $3.98. I thought it was worth it, but now that it's $25 () I'd happily pay $6.99 for it.
