    It's one of my favorites, too. CurlMart was the only place I've found it in the past--it's where I buy mine. Luckily, I bought several bottles last time.

    I've been wondering where it was, too. It's great stuff! I've never seen it in a salon. I have 1 bottle. Guess I'll have to make it last...

    it's still available at the Elucence website pleasantimage.com. i haven't tried to order it though so i don't know if they would ask for a license # or something since now they're claiming this is a salon only product. that's bs to me. it's just a protein conditioner.

    Thanks for posting about that site! I'd forgotten about it but bookmarked it now.

    I agree that this is ridiculous. I would understand if it was some sort of hardcore chemical or something, but it's a protein condish.

    And I used their website's salon locator. Not a single one within 50 miles. So, even if I wanted to, how am I supposed to get it?

    I hope they reconsider and let CurlMart sell it again.

    It seems like they would sell a lot more of it if Curl Mart were selling it.

    According to the Elucence website, it can be ordered online from a distributor called Pleasant Image. It looks like they carry the entire line of Elucence products.

    I just bought this for the first time at the Pleasant Image site. Another poster mentioned she got her Elucence products from there so I had it bookmarked already.

    I didn't know it had a fan club! :cyclopsani: I look forward to using it now.

    Thanks for the link! Amazon has it, too, but the shipping is crazy. Then again, I have no idea what the Pleasant Image shipping is.

    Can one of you ladies give me an idea of the shipping?

    I ordered a liter, the 16 oz Moisture Repair, and 12 oz of Barrier Balm. My shipping total was $12. I think that was reasonable considering how heavy all that will be.

    I was going to order another liter and the shipping was $15 before I removed it. HTH

    Thank you, that helps. :D

    I noticed they're local to me (So Fla). Their distributing address (in Aventura, FL) is five minutes from me and close to the Whole Foods I frequent.

    Wow. Wish I could just go get the stuff there. I hate paying shipping for something SOOOO close.

    Their website says you can't pick-up there at the site.

    This is one of the samples I got from you and I really like it so hoping they sell it on CurlMart again. How often do you use it? I thought you said you use it if you don't use a PT twice a week and then you'd use the Elucence , is that right?

    I use it as the second PT, if I do a second one in a week. As was posted above, you can buy it here: /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pleasantimage.com%2Forderonline.html" class="Popup
