2 Affordable Monthly Subscription Boxes

Whether you are currently transitioning, just did the Big Chop, or a seasoned Naturalista; you probably have noticed the plethora of natural hair products that are available in stores or online. I mean everybody and they mama are coming out with new natural hair product lines these days!

I am also sure that most of you have noticed the price on these products can easily keep your pockets or purses empty! Especially if you are a self-proclaimed product junky, like me.  Having natural hair is lit! So these natural hair companies are getting rich because of it!

Let’s keep it real, it can take a long time to develop a natural hair care regimen that’s going to work for you.  Caring for your hair involves much trial & error. Plus, we all know how the dreaded washday can be never-ending!  With so many product lines out there we must be careful about where and how we choose to spend our coins, right?  Therefore, I believe signing up for a monthly  natural hair subscription box is a great idea!

Why?  For a subscription of  $25 a month you can have a box of 4-5 full size products or 6-9 samples shipped straight to your door!  It’s a wonderful way to try products you have been eyeing, build up your product stash,  or discover new products you haven’t even heard of all at the same time.  When the regular price for one full size product can range from  $7-16  the subscription boxes are a great way to save tons of money.

I currently subscribe to Curlbox for a total of  $25 month (including shipping) and I absolutely love it! I love getting new products monthly and even getting to try full product lines! The packaging is cute, and each box includes a brochure which includes detailed information on each product .  If I made enough money I probably would  purchase every subscription box out there!

Anyway, below is some information on 2 of the  Natural Hair Subscription boxes that are available.  Both companies have a huge subscriber base, and are the best of the best in my opinion!

Curlkit- Curly By Nature

When it comes to Curlkit, they say  “CurlKit is our hair care test drive.” How annoying is it to spend money on a product you end up hating! Most times you have no idea if your hair is going to love or hate the product you have just brought.  CurlKit is available to take some of the pain and frustration out of trying new natural hair products.  CurlKit’s goal is to take some of the guesswork out of trying new products. The subscription box also comes with a free CurlLife mini magazine!

curlBOX

Before starting curlBOX the owner and founder Myleik Teele began working  with beauty clients which in turn exposed her to the vase array of natural hair products that were out on the market. While speaking to others she found out that everyone’s goal was to get the results they wanted with their hair but had no clue where to begin. curlBOX gives it’s subscribers the chance to try multiple different products for the price of one!

So with that said, I strongly suggest you give a natural hair subscription box a try! There are so many to choose from these days! If you want an example of what products are included in both boxes, watch this great video from fellow YouTuber Shawnte!

Until next time Curlfriends.  Make sure you subscribe, like, comment, and share! 🙂

 

 

Don’t Sleep on the NW! (part 1)

As my blog and social media presence continues to grow, I’ve decided it was now time to showcase some of the other powerhouses who lay their heads the NW.

I started this blog to let the rest of the world know that there is indeed naturals in the NW, particularly the Portland metro area. (contrary to popular belief).  Even though my area of the map is predominately Caucasian I feel other parts of the map skip over us because we don’t get to host the big natural hair shows, pop up shops, or natural hair conferences.  I am here to let you know we are not to be slept on.  2017 is already beginning show promise with the great networking that is happening among natural hair lovers either in person or online to promote natural hair care and hair health.  We are taking it upon ourselves to help inspire, motivate, and uplift our community one kinky, curly, coily head at a time.

I may be doing my thang with the brand OlenaRosanne but don’t get it twisted there are many, many more  curlfriends out there putting in work too.  They are working overtime to make sure our heads are healthy, protected, and stylish!  Get to know them because they want to get to know you!

Sa’Korya Avery – owner & operator of Diamond in the Rough Hair Spa

Sa’Korya specializes  in natural hair care for all ethnic groups along with natural hair products. I can not say enough good things about this hard working woman.  She has a true love for hair health, not just creating hairstyles.  Sa’Korya believes it is important that we all are aware of the ingredients that make up the products we put in or hair.  She understands there are a growing number of naturalistas discovering they are allergic to particular ingredients in the hair products they are accustomed to using.  So because of this there is a major need for more hair products that will  cater to those sensitivities. She is in the process of developing and hopefully manufacturing a natural hair care line that will meet these needs in our community.

Sa’Korya also is aware that there are a number of people of who have no idea how to take care of their own natural hair, or the hair of their loved ones.   Unfortunately, because of this they are opting for chemically treated tresses instead of what naturally grows out of their heads.    She believes education is important in the subject of natural hair health so she has been putting on natural hair care workshops throughout the community.

Sa’Korya also educates her own clients on the products she uses in their hair.  What a way to walk out of a salon: Elegant, Educated, and Motivated!  Speaking of motivation did I tell y’all this queen is one of the women who motivated me start this blog?  Yes indeed!! 🙂 That’s how we do it in the NW!

Below is a just few of the natural hairstyles she has created.
