    You got some of my favorites! :D It's so easy to spend a lot...it all looks so tempting! My first CurlMart purchase was around $100. My most recent one was around $35 - yes, I used restraint! :lol:

    Yeah I was in a daze when I paid for all my stuff! I wanted to try everything! BTW, your hair is soooo pretty! im green with envy! ive been trying to figure out how to make my hair clump and so far my curls are as skinny as ever! my routine is still pretty rough...plus I just started so I may be asking for too much *sigh*

    do you mind telling me whats your routine?

    Thank you! Yes, definitely give it time...it took me forever to find the right combo of products and application (and I'm still not where I want to be!!).

    Here's a link to my journal with my routine:

    Sorry - don't mean to guano, but I have a question for Abstar.

    I read your journal because I love your hair and I think our hair texture and length is similar.
    So you use leave-in conditioner only. No condish after you wash or water rinse? Do you ever use a regular conditioner? Hmmm. . .that may help my frizzies.
    TIA

    I usually try to wait until I run out of several things and have one big order. I like to get the freebies, so I try to wait until I'd spend $75. That seems like a lot, but I don't place CurlMart orders often, so I think it evens out.

    If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

    Gosh, I vary a lot. Now that I have a rountine in place, I'm not so quick to experiment with new products. I try to wait until I have a couple of things to order, so I can maximize shipping costs.

    bostonwaves...I co-wash every other day or so and sometimes I leave that in for a bit, all depends on how dry my hair is at that time. In general my hair needs a lot of conditioner. I always, always use a leave in. Hope I answered that correctly! :D

    Thanks for your response Ab-Star. :)

    My big purchases were my whole Jessicurl line and the whole Deva line.
    Now I just pick up 2 or 3 items every 6 weeks or so, running about $20-$40 either to replace Jessicurl or deva stuff that I ran out of or to try something new.

    I've recently purchased Boots and BRHG. I'm also waiting for Recoil and Joiwhip to arrive. I was trying to be so good sticking with just Jessicurl, but the dry weather has really changed the texture of my hair. I feel like I'm starting from scratch.

    Whenever I buy from CurlMart it is usually anywhere between $20-50. I like to buy more than one of whatever I buy.

    I put $60-100. When I buy I usually am stocking up so will buy liters of stuff or some B&A gel which is a little pricey. The same goes when I buy from Jessicurl, I usually stock up by buying liters.
    2b/3a, primarily use Jessicurl and DevaCurl products, Curls Hair Tea conditioner and various gels. I'm modified CG-ish since 5/04.
