My local Whole Foods was listed on the Kinky-Curly website for a couple of months before I saw it stocked on the shelves.
I saw the KC products at the WF in Durham, NC.

None today in St. Paul, MN.
What about the Whole Foods in DC, on P ST? Does anyone know about that?
They still don't have it in WF near me...but they had tons in Rickys! And they have pretty new packaging too!

I asked one of the associates last week if they would get any in, and she said they get it every once in a while but it flies off the shelves. This is the only WF in NYC I've been to that has a separate Whole Body store, unless I've been looking and have missed them.

I checked the union square WF right before, though, and I made a separate trip up to Chelsea! I had no idea there was a Ricky's right there!


Hair type: Fine, fairly porous, shoulder length when curly. Probably a 3a or 3b with tight ringlets now that it's getting longer. Hair loves aloe, hates glycerin.

Co-Wash: Suave Naturals Aloe and Waterlily (my HG conditioner!)
Rinse Out: Garnier Sleek and Shine, Trevor Sorbie curl conditioner (UK only, unfortunately)
Stylers: KCCC, AG Re:coil, TIGI mousse, but open to suggestions!
Gels: BRHG (my one and only)

Haven't checked for it at the WF at Union Square, since I keep forgetting when I'm there, and Ricky's is right across the street, kind of diagonally. It's right next to Lush, it's on actual 14th St. across from Union Square. But good to know it's at Chelsea - that's a great Whole Body shop they have there.

Anyone know about the WF at Time Warner Center?

I'm pretty sure that if they did have it, I would have seen it -- the Time Warner WF is really more of a food service place than a supermarket, though, I think. The actual store part is relatively small.

I used to go to TWC all the time when I first discovered WF, but now it's just so much easier for me to go to Tribeca after work, because it's right by my office, or Union Square since it's so close to Ricky's and the subway entrance is right outside the door. TWC and Chelsea are more out of the way for me.

Ya'll some st8 up busters being able to live in PJ havens...J/K...but, I'm jelly b/c my local WF does not carry Kinky Curly and seems puzzled and confused when I ask for them to special order it from their own other locations or Kinky Curly.

The entire line is available at the WF in Memphis TN.
They started carrying it after I went to Nashville, TN and purchased it!
Okay, as monkeygirl reported on page 1, they do have it for sure at WF in Union Square, NYC, but they were sold out. The only thing left was a well-worked tester jar, but they officially are carrying it. I hadn't taken any chances - I already had bought my new jar at Ricky's before I went to WF to pick up a few groceries, and finally remembered to check their Whole Body section.

Oh, and Sexyspirals - they had one bottle left of the KCKT.

I have not seen it at any of the Whole Foods I frequent on my travels around Massachusetts. But I have a brand new tub just waiting to be opened!! And this stuff lasts me forevah!!! So not sure why I am concerned - I guess I just want to know it could be bought quickly if needed.

One good reason to only maintain a small circle of friends is that three out of four murders are committed by people who know the victim. ~George Carlin~

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~
I got my jar in February, and it's about half gone, and my hair is a chin length bob. So I think I'm going through it maybe a little faster than most curlies do? Figure I'll probably be out of it by around late June? Not sure, but that's still pretty good, considering how fast I go through product - my curls require a bit more to shape 'em, or they just droop. I put my brand new spare jar that I just bought in the fridge!

So as far as they're concerned, if you're a New Yorker who doesn't live in or commute to New York City or its environs, you don't exist. Might as well lop off everything above the commuter lines, in other words, most of the state. (grumble, grumble, bah humbug!)

So despite being a stone's throw from three different places where I can get CG products, a lot of times I still hunt around online. For example, I just found an online store where I can get ALL of my DevaCurl products for a lot less. I also found my vitamin c facial serum that I can get in any healthfood store for $10 less online as well. So even though I can ideally just walk into a store and get them, it'll cost me a lot more.

And I still can't find KCCC cheaper online - I paid full price for it at Ricky's! That's been my mission since I found it - trying to find it cheaper online!
