    There's so much stuff so I'll just name the lines that were complete fails: Curl Junkie, Oyin Handmade, Karen's Body Beautiful, Darcy's Botanicals, Komaza, Hairveda, BeeMine, Donna Marie, Naturalista Cosmetics, Kinky Curly, Curls, Jane Carter and Beija Flor. I'm sure there's more but that's all I can remember right now. I've spent alot of money on products and nothing from these lines worked for my hair! That sure would be a nice refund check if I could get it!

    Extenzz. I have the bottle still two years later because it was expensive with shipping and I hate to toss it.

    Most other stuff was either cheap and I give it away. or stuff I can doctor up so I don't care so much. I did give an expensive protein treatment away bc it was too strong for my hair. But it was nice to see it work for my friend.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:

    KCKT. Total waste on my type 2 hair.

    Are expensive yet unreliable appliances allowed?

    Kinky Curly Curling Custard

    It was complete crap on my hair.

    I forgot about kccc. That stuff took all day to dry. I definitely wasted my money. I was really glad to finally kill that stash.

    Finickey Curl cream and hair butter. Both products dry my hair out, give me absolutely no shine and make my scalp itch.

    Miss Jessies cleansing conditioner or whatever its called. Horrible stuff.

    Hair Rules Cleansing conditioner, blow dry lotion, finishing cream. Ditto ^^

    3c/4a Very high porosity, fine, thin hair

    That's why I like to shop on ground,because that way you can easily return it vs online. Also if the product is bad or if I didn't apply it right and it had my hair looking a hot mess. Well then I would make my own mixture of things that I had still left of other products, and make it work. Sometimes if it don't work for me, I will do free package giveaways with it including free shipping, and items that were brand new because I brought to many or didn't work. I just would share, and sometimes it's just nice to do especially if another person might be wanting it..

    Anything Carol's Daughter. Sometimes I feel like people are pretending its good and they know better. That $50 I wasted is the reason I save receipts everytime I try a new product now

    No heat since August 2015 :)
  • auntcurlyauntcurly Posts: 234Registered Users
    Jane Carter Natural Hold Locking Spray turns my hair to a steel wool pad. I don't need any help with that.

    SM Curling Souffle. Liked it at first, but then it got humid and I didn't realize. The glycerin content is too much. I'm moving toward glycerin free products. Too much of a balancing act with the weather. But when the weather is right, it makes my hair look great.

    I have more products that I didn't like

    Curl junkie beautiful curls leave in (not good for people who live on a island)
    Afroveda twisting butter
    Hairveda whipped ends and cream ( whipped ends not moisturizing enough and cream is to sticky)
    I also like that a lot of us have reve essentials as a wasted products.( I am ready to throw this in the garbage.)

    These weren't terribly expensive but they do absolutely NOTHING for me.
    Beautiful curls Shea butter curl activating cream for curly to kinky hair
    Beautiful curls curl enhancing Shea butter leave-in conditioner for wavy to curly hair
    Desert essence coconut shine & refine hair Lotion
    Desert essence coconut soft curls hair cream
    GVP conditioning balm....just putting it on my ends at night, it better do something damn it!

    I bought these two products so long ago:
    Product....all components organic & plant derived (its an expensive, thick, tiny jar of friggin greasy crap)
    Hair fixer....its too strong of a protein treatment for my hair.
