For the most part and because of my unsatisfaction with the level of customer service I have been receiving I have been making my purchases from companies I trust. Some of these items I can find on the ground in Los Angeles but there are some things worth waiting for Black Friday to purchase in bulk. The companies I will continue to purchase from is as follows:

Curl Junkie
Oyin Handmade
She Scent It
Luv Naturals (Although they rarely have a sale)
Naturalee Hair Care
Uncle Funky's Daughter (Although they rarely have a sale)

If I want to try brands I will turn to boutiques like Hattache and CurlMart. The shipping service, speed, and customer service are great and I know I will get my products.
