I posted a review yesterday on the Silk 'N Curl product by Smooth 'N Shine Polishing (To see the full review, click HERE). In that video, I explained how I was going to do a review on the Miss Jessie's line of hair care products--the Curly Pudding and Baby Buttercreme to be exact. I mentioned how I like to use a product multiple times before posting a review, and I only received two 2-ounce samples of the Miss Jessie's products. Knowing how much I'll have to put in my hair in one application, I know there is no way a 2-ounce container will get me through multiple applications. Thus, I went to their website to order more samples…
Okay, so I got my samples for free from a friend, and therefore had no idea how much they cost! A 2-ounce container of the Curly Pudding is $7.00, and the Baby Buttercreme is $9.00. Those prices don't include shipping and handling! It should come as no surprise to you that I didn't click the "Checkout" button after filling up my cart.
People are constantly recommending products to me, and I would love to try them, but I refuse to set myself up for a fall. Why sample a product that I know good and well I'm not going to use even if it's fabulous? I'm sorry folks, but I'm not spending that much money on one container of anything. I'm heavy handed with products as it is, and if you watch the how-to videos on the Miss Jessie's website, you'll see that they advise users to apply a generous amount of their products as well.
Once I backed out of the Miss Jessie's website, I then went to the Kinky-Curly site because everyone's been telling me how much I should try the Kinky-Curly Curling Custard. I've seen a few YouTube videos in which ladies apply the Curling Custard and later rant and rave about how great it is. At $26.00 a pop, it better be great!
I'm sorry, but I just can't bring myself to spend that much money on products that I know aren't going to last me that long. I may just end up doing a "First Impression" video on the Miss Jessie's products, because I don't have enough product for multiple applications. Besides, as I stated earlier, even if it turns out to be a fabulous product, I don't see myself spending $22.00 on an 8-ounce container, or $38.00 on a 16-ounce container.
I'm a baller on a budget folks, so I'll peruse the aisles of drugstores and look for affordable curly hair products to test out. The Silk 'N Curl styler may not have been my fav, but at least it only cost $3.25!
Until next time…watch your wallet.
