Product Junkie Philanthropy (a.k.a. A Giveaway)

May 3, 2010

I know I haven’t really written any updates about my devolution into becoming a Product Junkie  since my product overdose, but for better or for worse, I can’t deny it: I am a full fledged PJ.

You know, some days are better than others and maybe a week here or there passes where I don’t make any new product purchases.  But other days….oh, those other days….I’ll be quietly minding my own and I get this itch, an itch to buy a new product.  Often times its triggered by reading a blog post about some revolutionary curl-definer or getting a recommendation about “THE BEST CONDITIONER EVER”, or lurking on a 7-page thread on a forum about how such-and-such brand is worth its weight in gold.  I’ll try to ignore it, but if the product review, visual evidence and/or ingredient list is compelling enough, that little itch becomes this burning urge to BUY IT AND BUY IT NOW NOW NOW.  “Its not for me, its for Lola,” I rationalize to myself.  Try as I might to concentrate, all I can focus on is getting my paws on that little jar/bottle/tube of glory.  This urge grows and grows and can annoyingly last for hours or days before I just give in and buy it so that I move forward with my life.  Done and done.  The itch has been scratched and all is right in the world.

Another thing that my PJ-self is a sucker for is a good deal/and or a sale! One product that I stumbled upon in my quest for the perfect moisturizer was Qhemet Biologics‘ Burdock Root Butter Cream.  Its lemony scent and light creamy texture makes Lola feel like cashmere!   I effing love this stuff!  I bought a sample of this about a month and a half ago and it was truly love at first opening-of-a-jar.  When I went to purchase the larger size, I was so so so  sad to discover that I wouldn’t be able to satisfy the itch for another month because they were shutting down the store to prepare for a huge sale on Friday May 7th.  I mean, talk about bittersweet: no immediate gratification, but waiting = sale.

Now I’m giddy with anticipation for the sale (T-MINUS 4 DAYS, PEOPLE!) and so are the good folks over at Qhemet Biologics who are sponsoring the first Natural Selection Giveaway of the Burdock Root Butter Cream.  That means you, yes you, will maybe, just maybe be the winner of this winning moisturizer.  How?  Its easy, let me tell you:

1.Learning about your hair- what works and what doesn’t – is something that *everyone* does regardless of texture, style,  or length.  Email me at with the one most important thing you’ve learned about your hair.

2. Make sure you’re an email subscriber to the blog.

I’ll be picking a winner this Friday May 7th (aka. Sale Day!) and compiling and sharing the list of lessons learned with you all next week!
