Walgreen’s BOGO Sale on Shea Moisture

I took advantage of the buy one get one free sale Walgreen’s had on Shea Moisture products.

This is what I purchased.

Walgreens Purchase

  • Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Leave-In Conditioner
  • Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Treatment Masque
  • Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo
  • Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner

Walgreens Purchase2  I stuck with the Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo and Restorative Conditioner. I didn’t feel the need to try a different shampoo and conditioner at this time.

Walgreens Purchase3  I started using the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Leave-In Conditioner during the Winter. It’s been a great addition to my haircare routine.

Winter Survival Kit Part One: Sally Beauty Supply Purchase

Winter Survival

One thing is for certain, Pittsburgh Winters are cold! My hair and skin really take a beating. This time around I made a couple of changes to my Winter hair routine.

Winter Survival 2              Last year I got great results using the Ion Repair Solutions Reconstructor.   In the past I would suffer from breakage during the Winter months. I wasn’t conditioning my hair enough. I use the Ion Repair Solutions Reconstructor as a weekly treatment for my hair.

Winter Survival 3This is actually the second bottle of the Jamaican Mango & Lime Jamaican Black Castor Oil with Rosemary I purchased. I massage my scalp with this castor oil. I will be using this Jamaican black castor oil with rosemary to seal my ends as well.

Winter Survival 4

Shea Moisture released the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore collection last year. I picked the leave-in conditioner as something to try from this collection.

I Actually Bought Something I Needed from Sally Beauty Supply

I went to Sally Beauty Supply recently to new my Beauty Club membership. I am usually tempted to buy a bunch of nail polish. This time I stuck to my store list. LOL!

Bobby pins always disappear in my house. I plan on hiding these bobby pins from my daughters. 😉

Sally Purchase 2

Normally I buy the Jamaican Black Castor Oil from the brand Tropic Isle Living. When I heard Sally Beauty Supply starting carrying the Jamaican Mango & Lime ™ brand, I decided to give it a try. There were four kinds to choose from: original, lavender, coconut, and rosemary. I chose rosemary since rosemary oil stimulates the blood vessels when massaged regularly into the scalp.

I also received a free haircare product for renewing my membership. I choose the Ion Repair Solutions Effective Care ™ Treatment. I use this as a deep conditioner. I usually buy the packs though. This should last me a while.

Modern Hair Beauty Supply

Modern Hair Beauty Supply is located in the East Liberty neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA. It’s been more than ten years since I last shopped there. I stopped by Modern Hair recently on a whim just to see what was in stock. For starters I asked the cashier of they carried African Shea Butter. With the weather getting cooler in my area, I knew I would need to make adjustments to my natural hair care routine.



I’ve been reading positive things about African Shea Butter on the natural hair care blogs. This container of Ghana Shea Butter was $3.99 for six ounces.


I walked around the store to see what else they carried. I was extremely happy to find Jamaican Black Castor Oil. This meant I no longer had to purchase Jamaican Black Castor Oil on Amazon.com. I paid $9.99 for a four ounce bottle. This time I wanted to try the Jamaican Black Castor Oil with lavender. I love the results I’ve been getting with this oil but I couldn’t stand the smell of the regular kind.


If you are ever in the Pittsburgh area, Modern Hair Beauty Supply is located 6320
Shakespeare Street.
