I agree - I was having a hard time justifying the Vita-mix, but once I took the plunge I understand why it is the best!! I have green smoothies almost everyday and it liquifies pretty much everything into a wonderful icy treat plus with the warranty you probably won't ever need another blender!!

(plus it makes awesome margaritas!! Lol)

I got mine at Costco for under $400. Totally worth every penny
Finally have a routine that works

Low Poo - 2chic Avocado & Olive Oil Ultra-Moist Shampoo
Co-Wash - V05 Passion Fruit Smoothie Conditioner
RO - Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, Cure Care, GVPCB
Stylers - GF Pure Clean Gel, BTZ Noodle Head, LA Looks Sports Gel, Eco Styler Krystal, KCCC (I am a product junkie )

Wash at night, add products, plop in a t-shirt overnight, then diffuse in the morning!! It is great finally getting to sleep in
