Why I stopped my hair subscriptions!!

I had just did my Big Chop and I was fresh out the chair. I had to go back 7 years to remember the tricks of the trade, many of which were most likely wrong for my hair anyways; I couldn’t go back to using the “Indian Hemp” hair grease, or using that blow drying every week. How in the hell was I supposed to re-learn my beautiful kinks. What the hell was I supposed to use? I can’t use the “Perfect for perm” or the products that have loads of crap that was destroying my hair.

To my surprise, no there wasn’t an app for that, but there was a subscription for that. HEY BOO!! LOL. I was a couple months behind until I found out about the whole subscription movement, but I knew I had to get on. I just had to get on that V.I.P list. Me and my hurr were VERY IMPORTANT PEOPLE!!

Sitting in front my computer I was able to make the first purchase to every product junkie’s dream. I now was en route to figuring out the new products I would have, to learn to use on my new hair. I was in HEAVEN! I mean who wouldn’t want to sit in the comfort of their home while products came right to you for just $20 a month. That’s less than a wash, set and blow out every 2 weeks! I saw no harm in my new found love.

I started out as one of the many naturals who wanted all natural products. With a subbie box that had different products, I kind of pushed that thought to the side. Then the numbers started to add up, and the products they became so so. I began to feel as if I needed rehab for my product addiction, literally products everywhere. I had to put a stop to it! So this December I treated myself to a kit and a box, just for the fun of it. I was hoping there were going to be some extra dope products and extras, but I mean it was just what I paid for. After, treating myself I called it quits. A new year was approaching and I couldn’t waste anymore money on products that half of the time I wasn’t using anyways. I guess, I can now say I am a product junkie on the road to recovery.

 

Did you stop any of your subscriptions?

Do you miss getting products every month?

Imena Event

I was invited to attend Imena Salon for their holiday party a couple weeks ago and I had known pretty much nothing about the company. I did my research and was pleasantly surprised at what I had read. So I am going to share the wealth with you all, I can’t keep the goodies from my Goddess’ now.

So, this is a monthly subscription to a salon where you can pretty much get any style you would like. Now tell me that ain’t dope! If you are in the NYC area and are looking for an affordable and community salon, definitely head over to Imena Salon.

I was feeling pretty amazing to be part of such an amazing event at Imena; I was able to speak with some lovely Goddess’ about their experiences as a Imena member, and their own hair journeys and see a demonstration by owner Tami. We even got to got home with some goodies from ILoveMyFro.

Check out a couple pics. from the event below:

“Just A Simple Solution”… Jass it up!

After realizing that a product she had been using on her clients which she thought was all natural, Janel decided to create
Just A Simple Solution also known as JASS products. To showcase her line she hosted an event at her salon CocoaMane which I was given the opportunity to be a part of. It was definitely a great event, with hair demonstrations, drinks like the Jass Passion, food by Mama CocoaMane, and an introduction to the products, as well as the “natural bar”.

Time to get to the nitty gritty…..I would first have to acknowledge how good that seafood lasagna was, mmmmmm. Janel and Mama Cocoamane owned me with that one. Lol. The drinks were super delicious; sweet with that sparkle.
I’m such a foodie!!!

The demonstrations were awesome as we got details into what products work best for various styles and we even got the chance to check out those products. Now y’all know I’m a sucka for a good scent, and this passed the smell test. Especially with that all natural oil. The decor of the salon was extra amazing and super sexy; I was in love with the chandeleir and all the amazing reds scattered beautifully around the salon. Oh and the best part of the salon is that they have a natural bar where natural hair treament’s are mixed right there on the spot. Now tell me that ain’t super fly…Check out pics below:

 

By the way I got some goodies as well.. so stay tuned for details and reviews of the product!
