What's your Spot???

Post by MelMelBee on 28th March 2011, 2:40 pm

Hey Ladies,

I've realized that even though I live in a large city (The City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection), I'm always on the hunt to find goof hair stuff, from herbs and Ayurvedics to oils and those "hidden" natural products! So let's make it easier for each other....Hey, we might be in each other's cities and will need to know where to go!

What's your city? Name/address/ or general whereabouts of where you shop? Products at that location?

And for you PJ's...

Where did you last visit? What did you buy?

Philly
Shiva Grocery/1021 Germantown Pike (Plymouth Meeting)/610-277-1119 I got them on speed dial
I get Ayurvedic products here

I was last there last Friday and got 2 boxes on Shikaki and some Vatika oil...I placed an order for Brhimi, Kalpi Tone, and another powder that sounds like fungus or something (can't remember the name to save my life!)

I think I might have to take a trip...I'm sure the gas to MD is cheaper than shipping...

St. Louis, Mo. I mostly shop at Sally for tools and my silk elements deep conditioner
and Walgreens for my commercial stuff. I get my oils from Golden Grocery, a small health food store. Ive gone on curlmart.com to buy some my honey child conditioner.

My last purchase was at this natural hair forum where I bought shampoo, leave in and oil from a local company called Happy People Only. I got all three for $25 so I guess I want that bad.

I live in Roseville, California(right outside of Sacramento) For all my black hair care needs, I go to my Crown Wig Beauty Supply or a store called Hair Plus. I really want to check out Sally's Beauty Supply because it seems like a lot of people like shopping there and they have great products.

@fuzzypuff & DvaAuNaturel:
Awww ... ya'll just brought mist to my eyes ... I lived in Silver Spring (Yorkshire Apts - White Oak area) for 3 years from '02-'05! I LOVED it over there - the accessibility was beyond belief (we used to go to NYC every other weekend to visit grandma), or we'd go to VA Beach, or Philly (shout out to MMB), or even my hometown - The Lou (shout out to JaliseH) ... *Sigh*

In fact, I was natural (the first time) in 2005 (I kick myself ALL the time for ever relaxing again). I was inspired by one of my professors at the time - Dr. Psyche Williams-Forson (check her out, she's the business). Those were the days ... Now, I'm "Deep in the heart of Texasssss ..." *cue the fiddle*. (LOL)

Oh ... maybe I should answer the question, huh? Embarassed

What's your city? San Antonio (TX) and surrounding areas.

Name/address/or general whereabouts of where you shop? Tarjay more than anywhere else, then Walmart, most recently Walgreens ...(I recently confessed my PJ sins on another post)

Products at that location? Tarjay has the Shea Moisture products I like, Walgreens does now as well. Walmart has the Suave products and Hot 6 type oils.

And for you PJ's... *I am* Very Happy

Where did you last visit? I visited Walgreens yesterday - a lil "incident" - I'm probably wanted by the man at this point. (LOL)

What did you buy? I bought SM products (6 of them); they're BOGO c'mon now! Very Happy

Raleigh, NC. I usually go to Whole Foods to buy my oils (coconut, EVOO etc.), Walmart for my conditioner (Aussie Moist). I changed my shampoo up so my most recent buy was the Shea Moisture Retention shampoo from target.
