Black Friday! What did you buy?

kurlybrownkurlybrown Registered Users Posts: 136
What did you ladies end up splurging on this Black Friday?

I was pretty modest with my spending. :wink: I actually wanted to purchase more, but the sales just weren't that appealing for me this year. Here's what I ended up ordering:

Darcy's Botanicals:
Coconut Capuacu Butter Pomade
Avocado & Wild Plum Twisting Cream
NEW Shea Butter Curl Moisturizing Cream
NEW Curl Styling (Leave-in) Cream
NEW Curling Cream Gel (She was offering this for FREE!)

Oyin Handmade:

NEW Hair Dew
Burnt Sugar Pomade

I would have jumped on the 30% KBB sale but I just ordered from her a few months back. I might get a t-shirt from Oyin/Exittheapple on Cyber Monday.

    For hair products, I only purchased from Darcy's so far:

    Madagascar Vanilla Styling Creme
    NEW Curling Cream Gel (which was free!)

    I do want to get the Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade which I think would be a good sealer for my ends, but I wonder if it will be redundant with the Darcy's Vanilla Styling Cream. I haven't used either before...

    The MVSC and BSP are totally diff - the BSP is more solid like hair grease, and the MVSC is creamy, and can be used as a LI moisturizer and works better on wet hair. hth!

    My purchases...I actually think I was pretty good, most of it is restocking my staples.

    Curl Junkie
    32oz Daily Fix
    32oz Curl Rehab
    Curl Queen
    Beauticurls LI
    Smoothing Lotion

    16oz Hair Dew (it just looked so good, I really hope it works well)

    Curly Styling LI (wonder how this compares to Ohm SHP)

    Sage Naturalceuticals
    Ohm Sweet Hair Pudding (giving it one more try to see what consistency I get)

    Thanks for the heads up! I just ordered the Oyin:

    Hair Dew
    Burnt Sugar Pomade.

    Between the Darcys Vanilla Styling cream, and raw butters and oils I recently ordered, I should be OK for a while. ;-)

    I didn't wanna splurge too much so I just restocked on my staples:
    Oyin
    *2 8oz containers of Shine and Define

    Oooo I hope Oyin is that quick with my order.

    All I got today was the Honey Dew. I was tempted to order the 16oz but I restrained myself just in case. Probably should've gotten the bigger size though since I've never had a miss with Oyin products.

    Well there was tons of things that I wanted but passed up. I ended up buying this:

    Darcy's Botanicals
    Both Avocado Creams, Madagascar Vanilla, and Poo Bar

    Hairrogrant (Shipping was ridiculous)
    I only got a few cubes of Anita Grant Rhassoul Clay

    SheScentIt
    I wish the deal was better but I got her hair butter because is has avocado in it (my hair loves it)

    Qhemet Biologics
    I got the New Ghee, Coco Tre Ghee, Amla and Olive Heavy Cream and my mom the Burdock Root

    KBB
    I ordered the Luscious Locs (my hairs best deep conditioner)




    Other deals for family I got mostly on Amazon.com, they had a promotion for Black Friday Beating ALL Online Deals, YUP I was so happy, plus Free 2-Day shipping. I got my mom a new Sony DVD player for just $30 (normally 89) and my son a Train Table for $40 (normally 79). Then I hit up Bath and Body Works for my granny and got her the free gift bag and the minimum purchase.

    I wanted The Body Shop's free bag but by the time I put it in my cart it was sold out.


    So I didn't do too bad but I will be on a strict budget for the entire month of December. I have hospital bills to try and pay off and some idiot cop gave me a ticket while I was rushing my son to the hospital with pneumonia, I wasn't speeding but I didn't see any stupid sign that said no turn on red. Hello! My 2 year old son had a fever of 103! Ugh! I'm still pissed about that.

    Y'all are rich or I am broke. No doubt the latter.

    I almost bought some Curl Junkie stuff. But I decided to get some LL Bean gum shoes and Smart Wool socks instead. Practicality won this year.

    & Karen Body Beautiful

    I also went to a local Natural hair products boutique and picked up Qhemet's Burdock, cleansing tea, my honey child Molasses treatment, the Donna Marie Shampoo and conditioner I didn't include that with my order, it was great to get it right there and then no shipping and they had a 25% BF sale.
