: Advice? Thanks in advance!
First of all, happy holidays!!
This is going to be my first time ordering hair products online (because now they're actually affordable, haha.) I have calculated some deals, and I need advice on which to choose.
Koils by Nature is having 35% off for orders over $40, which is great! Right now, I'm using their Herbal Curl Defining Gel, and it might be an HG. If I order a 16oz jar, that's $16. I am using the rinse-out conditioner, but I also really want to try the leave-in because of all the great herbs it has, and that's $22. Lastly, I'll get a sample of their oil, which is $5. This totals up to $43, and with the savings, I'd end up spending about $28.
HOWEVER, Darcy's Botanicals is having a sale as well, 25% off of all purchases. I've been dying to try the Pumpkin Seed Moisturizing Conditioner, but I've been worried about it because it has oat protein, and my hair (at least from the past) has always hated protein. It's far down on the list, though, so I don't know if the protein would hurt? Hmmm...well, according to the website, I could get a 16oz bottle for $12! With the 25% off, that's only $9.
Anyway, if I could, I would just buy everything, but I need to choose either Koils by Nature or Darcy's Botanicals. If I choose Darcy's, I'm only paying $9 and for 16oz but for a product I am unsure about because of the protein. With Koils by Nature, the products look very good, but I'd be spending $28.
Which deal should I choose?
I am so bad at making decisions.
Has anyone tried these and might be able to give advice based on their performances?
