Platinum Product Junkies Turns 1!!!!

1st_bday_girl

Who would have thought that a year ago that Platinum Product Junkies would be where it is today?  What started off as an off handed comment by a group of naturalistas who are all self described product junkies that “hey we should start a blog” while attending the World Natural Hair show in April of 2012 has lead to this.  Platinum Product Junkies launched Black Friday 2012 (November 23, 2012) and it’s been a world wind since then.  In a year Platinum Product Junkies has published 103 blog posts;  has over 1683 Facebook likes;  6,300 tweets and 1150 twitter followers.  Those numbers are staggering and we owe it all to you, our faithful readers.  You have made this year more than we could have ever expected.

It’s the holiday season which is a time for reflection and as Platinum Product Junkies reflects on the growth and success we have had our first year, we want to thank you all.  For without YOU, none of this would be possible.  You all have supported us in a way that words cannot describe.  We are planning a birthday celebration in January after the holiday season to allow for the majority of our readers to participate in the giveaways and celebration that we are planning.  We would be remiss if we waited until January to acknowledge this achievement and the very people that are responsible for it…YOU.

Thank you from all of the “PJs”….

Shawny, Nef, Tracey, Kim, and Hillery

Ouidad Curl Recovery Line Giveaway

Platinum PJs firmly believes that in the world of curls and textured hair, that hair products can be universal. We have noticed that throughout our individual journeys; the misconception that products marketed for “looser/wavier/botticelli” curls will not work for “coils/kinks/tighter” hair types persists.   One of our most pleasant discoveries has been Ouidad which caters to all curl “types” from loose wave to the kinkiest of kinky hair.  They offer an array of products from a spectacular Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil, to a Heat and Humidity gel that lives up to its claim of preventing the hair to swell.

 

According to Ouidad “I have spent many hours speaking with my clients about their curls and realize that we all shared a similar struggle. Some still carry the memories of traumatic curl-related events from their childhood and others just never thought their curls could be beautiful”.

Ouidad’s mission:    curly hair is a gift to be embraced and celebrated. We are dedicated to inspiring confidence in our customers by empowering them with the knowledge, tools, products and services to help them look and feel their most beautiful.

In addition to bringing you our tried and true hair products and companies; we also want to share with you companies that are developing new and innovative products.  So, we’re giving you the chance to win new products from Ouidad’s Curl Recovery line.

The Ouidad Curl Recovery Collection is the ultimate in specialized hair repair, mending damage while strengthening and restructuring curls to restore their natural lustre. With our exclusive CR-4 Repair Complex – including Mafura Butter and Kalahari Melon Seed Oil, rich in essential fatty acids – the formulas melt instantly into tresses to deeply nourish, fortify and reconstruct hair for healthy-looking, vibrant curls that spring back to life.

  • Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil
  • Whipped Curls Daily Conditioner & Styling Primer
  • Curl Defining Styling Soufflé

Us Platinum PJ’s have been on a giveaway spree lately and we’re not letting up!  We have had the pleasure of meeting so many shop owners and tried so many new and exciting products at the WNHS that we simply could not WAIT to share them with you all.

One of those great shop owners we met was Mr. Bel Nouvo.  I initially stumbled upon his Etsy shop during one of my many late night shopping research sessions and on a whim I decided to try a few things.  I’ve been in LOVE with him and his products ever since.  The first thing that intrigued me was that he is one of the few men immersed in the world of natural hair.  Second, his products are not your typical shea butter based products (which is great because my hair isn’t really a fan of shea butter) and lastly, he is one of the most charismatic and funny shop owners I’ve had the pleasure of meeting…and over the course of this natural hair journey I’ve met quite a few.

After chatting with him at the WNHS and sampling the products, Nefertiti and Hillery decided to take the plunge and purchase a few products as well, so look out for reviews from us on the line on the blog and forum soon.  In the mean time, we’d like to give you the opportunity to try these products out and tell us what you think of them.  We’re giving away the Castor Collection which includes the following:

 

  • CCreamy Castor Custardreamy Castor Custard Deep Conditioner w/ Jamaican & Haitian Black Castor OilKey Ingredients: Haitian Black Castor Oil, Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Mango Butter

 

 

 

  • CoCo Castor Pudding

    CoCo Castor Pudding: The perfect synergy of a styling aid and moisturizer!

    Key Ingredients: Agave Nectar, Mango Butter, Candelilla Wax, Coconut & Castor Oil

 

 

 

  • _MG_6165CoCo Castor Nectar Hydrating Hair Mist: Our lightweight moisture packed mist is the perfect way to refresh styles, detangle washed hair, and soften up dry frizzy hair. Not your typical watered down moisture mist…
    Key Ingredients: Coconut Milk, Vegetable Glycerin, Castor Oil, Coconut Oil, Wheat & Silk Protein

 

 

 

So here’s how you can enter to win these products…the more options you do, the more chances you get to win!!!

  2. Follow @Platinum PJ and @MrBelNouvo on Instagram
