Cash Back With Rakuten
I tend to be frugal and I just love getting a deal. I thought some of you may as well, so I decided to do a round-up of some wavy hair deals that are going on as part of black Friday or cyber Monday!
If you aren’t already a member of Rakuten it’s a fun way to save money year-round. Or perhaps ‘save money’ isn’t the best way to phrase it – they give you cash back after you’ve spent money. If you shop from your phone you can download the Rakuten app and you’ll just need to open the app and select your retailer before placing online orders. If you do your online shopping from a PC, you sign up and add their browser extension button. Then when you’re on a retailer site you can click the browser extension button and click on activate cash back. The app also will sometimes notify you of coupon codes available for the site you’re on!
Lots of retailers work with Rakuten, including Walmart, Target, Ulta, Sephora and Sally beauty. The percentage of cashback that you can earn can change at any time. The retailers I listed are all offering 4% to 10% at this moment.
If you are new to Rakuten it’s an AWESOME time to join. If you sign up with my link, and make a $40 purchase within 90 days, you’ll get a $40 cash-back bonus, and I’ll get $40 as well. The signup bonus is usually $25 so it’s awesome that it is $40 right now.
Wavy Gift Guide
Last year I put together a wavy hair gift guide for those shopping for people with wavy hair. Check it out if you’re shopping for someone else!
Hair Care Products Deals Through Retailers
Ulta and Target both have all Curlsmith products 40% off for black Friday! I have only used a few of their products but plan to buy more to test out for you guys. If you like really hard hold gels, I’d recommend the Curlsmith Shine Gel. It’s got really extreme hold and I use less of it than I do with most other gels. If your hair likes protein or is damaged, I’d recommend the Curlsmith Bond Salve. My hair isn’t damaged so I don’t usually use bond repair products, but this one has protein as well and my hair loves protein. I’ve used Curlsmith’s air dry cream and shape up aqua gel and neither of those were winners for me, though I have seen lots of other wavies say they love the air dry cream.
Ulta has 50% off OUIDAD climate control gel and hard hold climate control gel. I have tried these but personally haven’t cared for them but many others love them, especially people who live in humid climates.
Ulta has 50% Pacifica Curl defining cream and curls refresher mist.
Ulta has 50% off some HASK brand products.
Ulta has Buy one, get one free on Not Your Mother’s products. I like a lot of products from this brand but some of my all-time favorites are the not your mother’s curl talk mousse, the curl talk hard hold gel (not the regular gel!), and the rice water shampoo and conditioner.
Ulta has buy one, get one 40% off on SheaMoisture products. Many of their products are too heavy for me, but I like the Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & yogurt protein treatment.
Ulta has 40% off some Eva NYC products.
Ulta has 30% off Pattern brand products. I had previously assumed this whole brand would be too heavy for my hair, but I have seen some wavies say that select Pattern products can work on some wavy hair.
Sally’s has 25% off Shea Moisture products. Many of their products are too heavy for me, but I like the Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & yogurt protein treatment.
Meijer has bogo 50% off on salon professional hair care products.
Amazon has 30% off some Zotos products. I have tried a starter kit of products from this line and didn’t love them but when the Devacurl claims first started happening, I saw a lot of people saying that Zotos products are comparable to Devacurl. I’ve never tried Devacurl so I can’t speak to that but something to consider.
The Pacifica Pineapple Curls Defining Cream is 50% off on amazon. I have this but haven’t given it a try yet.
Some Umberto Giannini Curl products are on sale on Amazon. I’ve had the curl jelly on my wishlist for quite a while and it’s currently 40% off vs the price it was when I added it to my wish list.
Twist weather up gel is 48% off. I’ve used this and thought it was okay but not spectacular, but my hair isn’t as sensitive to humidity as some people. Other Twist Products are around 50% off as well.
Mielle Organics Babassu and Mint Deep Conditioner with Protein is on sale for $8. Amazon says the regular price is $10 but I think that is incorrect. I think it’s usually closer o $12-$14. Many other Mielle products are also on sale for around $8 on Amazon.
LUS all-in-one stylers are 19% off on amazon.
Marc Anthony Curl Foam is 55% off on Amazon.
Olaplex products are 20% off on Amazon.
There’s a OUIDAD Sale on Amazon on their ‘heat and humidity’ products for 50% off.
