In their Comment section they posted a poll:

Were almost where they need to be in the terms of inventory...

So, would you like our website to reopen ahead of a sale or remain closed until we have enough inventory to hold an extended sale and continue selling online through Sage? If we reopen, Qhemet will no longer be available online through Sage and our order processing time can run up to 2 weeks depending on the number of orders in the queue.

Most people opted for them to stay close until they are completely ready to hold an extended sale....

    Sage works well for me since I get my order in 3 days or less.

    I'm talking about changes apart from the packaging. For a while I've just felt it is a little different. It may just be me. I thought it was thicker in the jar and now it seems diluted. It hasn't been working the same for me since it's been put in the bottle. And I can easily go through over a quarter of the bottle in one use. I could get way more uses out of it when it was in the jar.

    Ive got the bottle and a few jars left...the bottle is thinner. Not by much though. I like the bottle, im an over-scooper and was always putting some back which made me afraid id be growing penicillin soon. Now, I dont experience the greasy feeling since im controlling the amount better.

    I see they put the Honeybush Tea Gel and the OHHB in bottles with pumps now. I make a mess and waste product whenever I use OHHB.

    All I want to try is the Aethiopika Twisting Butter, Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee, and Moringa Tree Conditioning Ghee....and maybe the gel so I can scratched them off my list. I feel like I'm missing out on those products.

    ABSOLUTELY!

    I actually mentioned it in passing on the Qhemet sponsored thread on LHCF (vendor section) and Qhemet/Napata basically told me I need to stick to using her line, even though CTDG had been working for me just fine they way I had been using it the entire year before she made changes to "the bottles".

    I followed her directions because I LOVED CTDG and the way it worked for my hair and I just wanted everything to go back to being the same. I purchased more of her products to use in conjunction with the CTDG and that did not help. AT ALL! I ended up selling them on the exchange forum.

    I purchased another bottle of the CTDG and used that bottle on one side of my hair and used that bottle that wasn't performing very well on the other side of my hair and there was a NOTICEABLE difference.

    I messaged Napata/Qhemet on on LHCF explaining my experience and she never responded. Granted I could have e-mailed her via her website, but I know she is an active member on LHCF. Also, in the last year (previous to this) she has initiated messaging me on LHCF about a photo I posted using her products and wanting to know how I achieved the style so I know she checks the private messages.

    @CocoT I definitely agree with your observations. Apparently there is seems to be some inconsistency in the product now.

    I'm extremely disapointed on the way this matter was handled. EXTREMELY. Ignoring someone is never good.
  • JahNaturalDezignJahNaturalDezign Posts: 1,160Registered Users
    Westndnbeauty & Coco, y'all are making me reconsider the CTDG. I've never tried a full jar but before my local store that sold QB closed (way before the change) I remember sampling some and it did seem pretty thick to try to put in a pump.

    The Moringa Tree conditioning ghee has a very strong floral scent. I sold mine because I couldn't stand the scent. FYI

    So I decided to e-mail through Qhemet's website.

    Here is what my message said:

    Hi
    I've messaged you on June 23 about my experience with the newly bottled CTDG through LHCF and I received no response. Just today I came across a thread on Naturally Curly where someone seems to be having the same experience as myself with the CTDG not working they way it previously did.

    Has there been a change in the product?

    In June I literally did a side-by-side with CTDG from one batch (purchased in March) and CTDG from another batch (purchased in June). Each product was on either side of my hair and they both performed differently. That was my confirmation.

    Here is the response:
    Hi West!

    Sorry for the oversight and thanks for resending the question. I'm glad you got the results you were looking for from the bottle you purchased in June. We haven't changed the formula but slight differences may occur from batch to batch.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Kind Regards,

    QB


    There you have it folks! Do with that information what you wish.
  • Chicago KinksChicago Kinks Posts: 2,747Registered Users
    Hmmmm, batch to batch differences?!? What she mean...that is not cool right there. I have not noticed any differences with the items I've ordered over the years.

    I'm seriously wanting to try the gel in bottle but its not a major want.

    im going to be butt mad. On the real shes had consistency changes in her products but they have worked regardless for me. Even my CTDG in some of my jars were different but they worked the same.

    I havent bought a bottle yet cause if its different Im going to be upset. :/
  • juanabjuanab Posts: 4,037Registered Users
    This is posted under FAQs on the website:

    Q: Why is this product slightly thinner/thicker than the last one I received?

    A: QB products are made fresh using natural oils, butters and emulsifiers so slight differences in texture from batch to batch may occur. This will not affect performance. A thinner batch will thicken over time as is the nature of certain emulsion systems.

    thats been there for years Juana which is why im not really worrying about the texture consistency because over the years it has changed with all her products ive ordered.

    im worried about the way the ctdg will now perform being that much thinner to pump out a bottle
  • westndnbeautywestndnbeauty Posts: 73Registered Users
    I think some may be missing the point. Yes the texture is different but PERFORMANCE has also been varied as well.

    I've used this one specific product for a couple years religiously each wash day and have experienced different textures and SCENTS with the product still doing what I know it to do.

    What I'm discussing now has nothing to do with texture or scent but PERFORMANCE. That is all I care about.

    When my hair is still dry as a desert after using CTDG when it is normally nice and supple, that is a problem.

    Hopefully you all will get where I'm coming from.
