    Yea, I've gotten a lot from the swap boards here, and my one CurlMart order in February still has me working on my vat of DevaCurl stuff, so thats what I choose :D

    I picked "All or a combination of the sources as below"

    I get my hair products from: CurlMart or the Nc.com swap boards, online sites other than CurlMart, Salon & Drugstore.

    We don't have Sally's or any beauty supply stores here. It's probably a good thing too considering I am such a PJ :twisted:

    I get my products mainly from a hairdressing store, Walmart, or a healthfood store.

    Right now I'm using Aussie 3 minute conditioner the Original(not the Deeep stuff), (I found the Original at the grocery store of all places!) and Herbal essence humidity defying gel.

    We're having another heat wave and anything else is just too much. I get good second day hair with this combo and my hair dries quickly.

    Most of my products I get from CurlMart, but I do use Aussie Gel + Water and HE Humidity Defying Gel from the drugstore, conditioner from Trader Joe's, and Devacurl products from a local salon. The Sally's that was five minutes from my work has closed, and the next nearest one is quite a hike, so no more Sally's stuff for me. Harmon Discount Cosmetics (a NY area chain) is another place I sometimes pick up things, including some of the same lines Sally's carries.
  • CherishCherish Posts: 1,847Registered Users
    I buy products from everywhere except curlmart. I need to check that out. I also make some of my stuff. That said, I'm not a PJ and I don't use a lot of products at a time.
  • sweetpeacurlisweetpeacurli Posts: 343Registered Users
    the majority of my products are currently from curlmart, but there's a fair few from salons, drugstores, and sally's as well. everything in my current rotation except my shampoo is from curlmart, though.

    I get most of my stuff from Curlmart -- but I get my Suave CO for washing at the drugstore and a few things (like Biolage Gelee, or Aveda Elixer) at the salon.

    I cook up a few mixes at home using recipes from CG -- mostly my oil treats, scrubs, lemonaide wash, and I'm gonna try Jessi's ACV rinse today!

    I do buy some at the ds or Sally's but the majority are from Curlmart, Jessicurl or Devacurl. It depends what I need, if I buy from Curlmart but need the other two then I'll just do the one order. But if I'm only ordering Deva or Jessicurl stuff then I'll order it from them. :)

    I buy my devacurl products at a local beauty supply store or Ricky's NYC.

  • MMWMMW Posts: 557Registered Users
    I tend to get most of my stuff from drug stores or Target. My next source would be random websites and curlmart (tied). Once in blue moon, I will go to Sally's...I buy too much when I go there, so I try to limit my visits. :D

    I definitely spend the most of my hair product money at Curlmart. I buy GF C&S leave-in and Suave M&H at grocery/drugstores, and Aura Hypo gel from Sally's.

    Aside from 1 product, I get everything at my local Walmart and Longs. My local Longs carries a lot of "natural" skincare and haircare lines. That's where I get my Nature's Gate products.

    I get all my deva stuff at a beauty supply ( iam licensed in cosmetolgy) so I get it at 40% off, everything else I get at Curlmart I am a really junkie I have sooo much stuff It will probably take me the rest of my life to finish it. I am the same with make up I buy it at the dept. store (All the woman know me its sooo embarassing) Half the time it looks like I have no makeup on.

    Sally's (not so much anymore)
    The Beauty Connection (candy store!!!) - plus Barnes & Noble and JP Licks are across the street, Good Vibrations and CVS are in the next block and TJ Maxx is down the street. Life doesn't get any better!! (Well, there used to be a Sally Beauty around the corner but they closed). Go Brookline!

    Here's where I buy my products:

    Shampoo bars: online at Chagrin Valley soaps.

    Suave and Activate conditioner: Wal-mart

    LA Looks Curl Gel: Wal-mart

    Biosilk Glazing Gel: Trade Secret salon

    Generic Paul Mitchell leave-in: Sally's.

    I don't shop at Curlmart because I know I can find products in my area that will work just as well. It's tempting, though. I generally buy salon products when I feel like treating myself, not really because they work a lot better.
    3B that is no longer CG, but still endeavors to have healthy hair by not using sulfates.
