Curl to Curl- What Would You Buy?!

TerraD writes:

So you’re walking to your car and find a brand new scratch off ticket on the ground. You look around and see no one, so you pick it up and scratch it off as soon as you get in the car. You scream…you’ve won $1,000,000!

What is the first hair related item you’ll buy (after getting a brand new Range Rover and those Louboutins that you’ve been eyeing on Barney’s.com, hehe) and why?

    humm lots of buying, i will first pay my tithe, buy all the hair products in curly mart. and the hair pins will definitely buy abt 50 different types and colours and then i ll put the rest back into my business and then charity i ll help the needy too. dreams, wake up babes n go to work.

  • BKelz says:

    I'd buy probably all the Komaza Care Products. I can't afford them right now and it's a line I definitely want to try.

  • april says:

    I forgot to add why lol. I would like to diversify my look with more scarves and also have more to sleep in and a girl can never have enough hair pins! I also would appreciate more perm rods, I've lost a few. I want to try Alikay's heat protectant and Qhemet (I wouldn't waste money on the little sizes. I'm heavy handed and even if I didn't like it, I could give someone else a decent size), Oyin and Ojon. I'm fond of my Ayurvedic powders and would like to try their oils, and I love the Knot Today conditioner. I've fallen in love with co washing with it.

  • april says:

    I think that the first hair related item that I would buy would be more scarves, hair pins lol and a new set of perm rods. I would also buy some hair products like Alikay Natural's heat protectant spray, the larger sizes from Qhemet Biologics, some Oyin products, Ojon products, more amla, neem, brahmi powders and their oils, and the largest size of the Kinkly Curly Knot Today Conditioner.

    Buy a house, pay off student loans, and sent my parents away on a cruise to the Virgin Islands. For me I would buy a hair steamer, make a standing appointment at my favorite natural hair salon (Natural Resources in Houston, TX) with their 6 month waiting list, and get my hair colored at an Aveda hair salon. I am good with my hair products though. Great answers given.

  • Misschris says:

    Wow, such a great comment thread!

    For those looking for an affordable (and space-saving) steamer, there is one currently sold (no end date) on eBay for $40 US + free shipping. It's the same one my former hairdresser used, and it was great! (She was great, but I moved away for school, so I can't go there anymore!) The seller is from Thailand, but has 100% feedback, so could be worth trying!

    Quick question — I'd also love to go to NYC next summer when my hair is long enough to get a professionnal haircut at a salon. I'm a grad student, and I know its expensive, but I'm a first-time natural and REALLY want to make my first haircut a special occasion!

    Btw between Miss Jessie's and Devacurl, which one gives better salon service and ultimately, the best haircut? Thanks!!!

    I'd fly the NYC and have Miss Jessies or DevaChan give a good cut, a nice wash, and a great style

  • MelMelBee says:

    I'd invest in Phyto products….Love them…but it truly is an investment!!!!

  • Basic Woman says:

    @CocoDreamee – Hair steamers look like hooded dryers but the hood puts out steam instead of hot air. Many people use them to enhance the effect of conditioners, infuse hair w/moisture, help with scalp conditions, etc. I find the steaming process to be very therapeutic and I believe my hair has benefitted from the steam treatments. Many salons offer steam treatments.

  • Naturally You says:

    I would definitely purchase equipment for a in-house salon – a shampoo bowl, dryer, and steamer.

    I would stock up on Karen's Body Beautiful, Kinky Curly and Komaza products.

  • Anonymous says:

    I would purchase a Miss Jessie's product to see what all the hype is about.

  • MizSerious says:

    Curlformers, blow dryer, Aveda products and hit Khamit Kinks for more than a consultation

  • CocoDreamee says:

    oh and clearly I have been under some rock…somebody fill me in on the hair steamer…what are the benefits?? what does it look like?? I'm all kinda behind on that one 🙂

  • CocoDreamee says:

    well after I finished my happy dance and paying off stuff, hooking up my fam bam etc etc…I would buy a super cute pink and sparkly one of a kind storage somethin to hold and organize everything. I would buy CD marguerites hair magic,hair milk and mimosa stuff LOL…I would buy a lifetime supply of Kinky Curlys knot today and curling custard….And I would hit up jasmines and get a ton of shea butter…to satisfy the PJ in me, I would try some sheamoisture products and Karens body beautiful, I hear such great things about them.

  • nappy headed black girl says:

    Definitely a steamer.

  • dayday says:

    i would buy the entire kinky curly line, cause i am way too cheap to spend that kinda money on hair products right now

  • Anonymous says:

    I'd grab a perfect weave (like those Beyonce wears) because I'm sick of having short shrinkable hair. 😀

  • Dolores says:

    Because I've found that there is little correlation between the price and effectiveness of hair products, I would not change the products I use. I would get a water softener though.

  • battlekat says:

    I would buy a steamer and start experimenting with different product so that I could find one line of products that worked for my hair. Instead of have shampoo from this line and condish from another.

    I would book a flight to NY city and have my hair shaped by Carlos Flores.If I liked it I would then go back once a year .I would set aside a certain amt for purchasing hair care products.I would rent a billboard and have it say something very positive about natural hair care something to dispel the myths.!

  • KP says:

    pay my tithes & offerings, repay deferred student loans,& buy a diffusser, steamer, and shower water purifier

    I'd definitely buy lots of shea butter by the gourd.

    It's a toss up between the Herbal Reconditioner and one of the leave-ins, but it will be something from Blended Beauty. I love their stuff, but it's too expensive for my current budget.

  • ~Decidedly Imperfect~ says:

    A Denman, steamer & more bobby pins!!

  • Kea::Curls says:

    Hop a flight to NY and go to DevaChan salon!!!

  • Tahlove says:

    I'd get a hair steamer and get a stylist on retainer… I'm so lazy LOL

  • mizz says:

    my first hair-related purchase would be a properly layered curly hair haircut

    I'd put a shampoo sink and a stylist's chair in the basement for my daughters ♥ (one is 3 and the other 2 mths) ♥

  • Dee Dubya says:

    I would get a(nother) degree in herbology/nutrition so that I can learn to mix my own products.

    I would also open my own salon specializing in healthy, natural hair care (in Southwest Atlanta) and I would hire a whole team of talented stylists. I would also retain one of them as my personal stylist to redo my hair every 3 days.

    Also, next door to the salon, I would open a franchise similar to Whole Foods/Trader Joe's that would cater to African American hair care/nutrition, and I would offer free classes on nutrition and herbology to patrons. Oh, and I would sell snowballs there too, LOL!

    I would love to make a line of barbie dolls (and barbie styling heads) that have natural hair so that you can practice your cornrow and flat twisting techniques (for those who don't have kids to practice on, lol).

  • kimmie0810 says:

    Anonymous 12:29, what style do u want from Khamit Kinks? I want the Miko micro braids. I've always wanted a bobbed braided style but my hair was always long. Now that I've done the BC I can get it!

  • Anonymous says:

    I agree with Anonymous July 26, 2010 1:20 PM. I would build an African American Hair Supply Company Empire. I would have stores in all of our communities and hire local residents.

  • Jerrinae says:

    First before everything I'd have to pay off my college loans…which are currently accumulating because I am only half way through. Secondly, definitely would buy MISS JESSIES whole line to try! I really want to try it but it doesn't seem likely on a student's budget…

  • Anonymous says:

    After paying for school, I would stock up on Kinky-Curly products.

    I forgot to mention why I would buy the Bulgari hair pins –

    They're just so pretty, so precious and so wearable.

  • Une Belle Vie(a beautiful life) says:

  • stephanie aka scrapandthecity says:

    A fully stocked store in my neighborhood that would offer healthy hair products and services.

  • Alicia says:

    I would buy Kinky Curly Curling Custard b/c right now that $30 price tag is in my way!

  • glamazini says:

    1st product would be Knot Today conditioner cause I'm too cheap to buy it now. 2nd thing would be book a standing appointment w/ my stylist 🙂

  • Jenell : BlakIzBeautyful says:

    I'd get a year supply on all my favorite products: Giovanni, Shea Moisture, etc.

    Then I'd hire someone to come over every 3 days to style my hair in a new updo style!

  • Unknown says:

    I would hire a stylist! I can do my own hair and I will do it, but a girl gets tired.

  • MJ says:

    Um, hellooo! I'd run out and buy the BEST camera and video camera money could buy just so I could upload all of the pictures and videos of my beautifully-styled hair! But then again, I might just have a photographer do that!

  • Anonymous says:

    I would buy more shea moisture products!!! I just love how the restoratives line makes my hair feel.

  • Anonymous says:

    i would get the most expensive hair consultation i could buy. i can't justify some of the prices i have seen for hair cuts and consultations on my grad student salary.

  • Anonymous says:

    I'd start an African-American hair supply business including a distribution center and stores with plans to franchise. Then, I'd announce 50 $20,000.00 low interest loans (folks are careless with gift-money) to experienced African-American business people. They would have to be community-minded, interested in creating hair products, and willing to network with the other loan recipients and of course my distribution business. Another words, watch out Madame C.J. Walker, I would create an African-American hair empire!!!!

  • Unknown says:

    I would definitely buy karen's body beautiful hair milk, Its so awesome! it keeps my twists from getting frizzy and it keeps them moisturized for days

  • Balls Of Beauty says:

    this is too funny cuz the FIRST thing i thought of was the hair steamer! i mean…i've been eyein it on ebay ($100 FREE shipping) but i just dont wanna spend MY money on it, lol. **sigh** one day i'll break down n get it…one day **gazing into the sunset**

  • Anonymous says:

    Hum… Probably a few shares in Carol's Daughter so I could make some of the money back that I spend there! Plus investors must get discounts and freebies, right? Lol

  • apaine says:

    a new hair bonnet/dryer.

  • Anonymous says:

    I would buy a Pibbs 514 Dryer. Then I would fly to New York to get a hair cut at Divachan Salon.

  • Anonymous says:

    Not to sound redundant, but I'd buy a hair steamer as well. I've heard good things about the benefits of using one and I just have not decided to treat myself as of yet.

  • Anonymous says:

    I would fly to the US and stock up on all those US products: I think it would cost me less than the shipping to Europe. LOL

  • Anonymous says:

    A Pibbs Hair Steamer for sure! 🙂

  • Anonymous says:

    A hair steamer to improve my DC! I also agree w/ kimmie0810 regarding a trip to Khamit Kinks. There is a style on their web page I'd love to try.

  • honeybrown1976 says:

    I would get some Curlformers!!!

    Hmmmm. I would get the MP detangler brush, build an addition into my home and set it up as my own personal hair salon complete with washing bowel and walk in freezer to store all my butter, oils, ect (got to make them last:)I would pay someone to teach me how to perfect braiding and adding extensions.

  • kimmie0810 says:

    I'd finally get my hair steamer!! My former stylist used one, but I've moved & I really don't need to go to the salon so I want to do the steaming at home. I'd also buy the Ouidad comb (I talked myself out of it b/c I have like 3 perfectly good combs already & 1 head); the hair gloves; Aveda defining whip. Hell I'd just go buy every product line I've ever seen & wanted to try but didn't b/c I already have SO MUCH that I'm giving things away.

    I'd also go to NY to Khamit Kinks to get my hair braided. I've been wanting a really cute microstyle I saw on their website but I'm afraid for my edges so I don't want just anyone doing the braids. KK charges about $600 w/the hair & I think that's too much b/c I never keep braids in more than a couple weeks. But once I'm a millionaire, it won't matter lol.
