Missed my blog post on Saturday, darn it! This is because I did, predictably, pack almost too much into Saturday–after staying up late Friday shopping online for . . . what else? . . . hair products!
Several sites for products I either like or wanted to try had big black Friday sales, and if you have a little natural you know good hair products are almost as expensive as they are natural. I hadn’t purchased anything in a long time, though, since her stylist hinted that it might be better to stick with a couple things that work well together and I already had too much of a mish-mash stockpile. Then seemingly overnight I was on the last dregs of things. Danger!
We got home pretty late from super fun times with super old friends, so I was racing the clock for the deals that ended at midnight Friday. Some companies are extending their deals through Monday, though, so there’s still time to stock and save! (Happygirlhair.com has a post listing all the sites with sales.)
I managed to limit my purchases (for now) to Darcy’s Botanicals and Bee Mine, the latter of which is new to me. I was tempted to reload on Oyin Handmade and try some Blended Beauty stuff . . . but then I’d be back to too many different things again. I can get Kinky Curly at Target. I know this sounds crazy to some of you but I really don’t use a ton of products. Honestly I should probably use more to make styles last longer and to give AJ more moisture now that the air’s so dry. I hope I hit on a great combination of new stuff. And although the products are expensive, they usually last quite a while, and I have had money sitting in PayPal for a long time for work I’ve done on the side, so it’s kind of like a secret hair products slush fund. Or it was until I discovered that Land’s End takes PayPal. DID YOU HEAR WHAT I SAID?! LAND’S END TAKES PAYPAL!
Be afraid, Mr. Postman. Be very afraid.
But please also be fast!
