This is a wonderful product - I chose formula 2 and it's helped me have 2nd and 3rd day hair without much effort. Highly recommend it!

Took a month to ship, and I've since moved so I never received it. I did reach out to see when it would ship and the date I was given wasn't met. So I will not be ordering from here in the future. The seller needs better communication.

About

We don't have "one size fits all" hair!

Let me be honest, I love curls and waves! I might even be obsessed. :) When I found out my "fluffy, frizzy straight hair" was actually wavy hair that just needed the proper care, I was ecstatic. I dove in *ahem* head first. This led me to my Curly Girl journey, and that led me to the discovery of Flax Seed Gel. I was in love. No other product before, or since, has given me the clump-tastic curl enhancing definition that my beloved Flax Seed Gel has. So I wanted others to experience what might be their Holy Grail hair product, too, and decided to start selling it.
I am still working on new products, and willing to listen to customer requests, so if there is anything you'd like me to work on, let me know!
We don't have "one size fits all" hair, so I believe we shouldn't have "one size fits all" hair products! How many times have we had to pass on something because it had ingredients that disagree with our hair, or because you don't like the scent, or any scent? How much time do those with allergies or intolerance have to spend reading label after label to make sure their products don't cause a reaction?
I make every product especially for you, when you order it, never one second before. Need lots of protein in your products? Awesome, me too! Done. Hair hates protein? No problem. You decide what goes in and what stays out. I don't have something you want? I'll do my best to get for you!
Did a previous order fail to live up to your expectations? I understand, message me and maybe we can figure out why!

Welcome to Sweet Curls Elixirs! Hair has been my passion and hobby for over 4 years. In that time, I have learned that people often like a product "but"... but the fragrance was too strong; but it contained ingredients that don't agree with my hair; but I was allergic to something in it, etc.
This realization, along with the desire to offer the wonderful magic that is Flax Seed Gel to those who can't or don't want to make it themselves led to this store.
It is my hope to provide you with your "Holy Grail" hair product!

Have questions or need guidance? Please send me a message!

Please inform me of any allergies/sensitivities you have! I have a separate mixer, bowl, funnel, etc for those with nut allergies. Otherwise, I will use the same equipment that has been used with nut oils.

Items from a smoke free (going on 2 years!) but pet (rabbit) friendly home.

Disclaimer: I do have medical issues, and do sometimes have to stay in the hospital. I never know when this will happen, and the stays vary in length. I will make an effort to inform customers ASAP. However this isn't always possible to do quickly and may be a couple to a few days until I am well enough to go through orders and let you know. Please do not hesitate to send a message, however, as looking up and responding to individual messages is much easier for me during those times.

*NEW* I am accepting PayPal Credit, and offering the promotional terms of interest free financing on orders of $99 or more if paid in full by 6 months.

I accept all major credit cards, PayPal, and Etsy gift cards. If you would like to pay by money order or check, please contact me and we can work something out. Orders will not be made until paid for.
Note on PayPal e checks and rush processing: E checks can take 3-5 days on average to clear. The one week time frame for the money back guarantee will not start until the e check clears. Therefor, you may wish to use another payment form if you want you order asap.
Cancellation of orders: you will have 1 day to cancel your order. Because everything is made to order, if you need to cancel an order, please do so as soon as possible. Compliance with this policy is crucial for me to keep costs down.
Shipping
Note to US customers: I am able to ship approximately 3, 8 ounce bottles, or 4 4 ounce bottles in a reinforced flat rate small box for $5.80. If you purchase more than 3, 8 ounce bottles, or more than 4 4 ounces bottles, please purchase the extra shipping charge listing (link below). If you are unsure if you need to purchase this listing to cover shipping, please shoot me a message, I will answer ASAP (I always have my phone on me, so I shouldn't take too long to answer).
Please help me keep shipping costs as cheap as possible!

Note to international customers (outside the US):
I can only estimate shipping via the cheapest option I have, USPS first Class. I can refund the shipping difference, if any, once I know the final shipping price. Additional fees may be applied by your postal service, such as customs fees. You are responsible for these fees if incurred. I am unable to predict how much, if any, additional fees may be applied by your postal service.

You are responsible for providing the correct shipping address. Once I fulfill my end by shipping the item, the item is out of my hands. If the item is undeliverable to the address provided, either because the address is incorrect, because your local post office does not leave packages at your address or any other reason other than seller error, it is your responsibility to contact to your local post office to arrange to pick up the package or re-delivery. US customers are automatically afforded package insurance up to $50 per priority mail through the post office (you must contact the post office to file a claim).
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final. If there was a problem with your order please contact me for a resolution.
Additional policies and FAQs
FAQs:
Do you preserve your products?
Yes. I use a tested all around preservative and careful preparation techniques to ensure your product is as contaminate free as possible.

How long will it last?
I have confidence my products will last at least 3 months. Please keep in mind this is a preserved NATURAL product. Almost all of the ingredients I use are natural. This means they do go bad eventually, and do not have the shelf life of chemical laden products. I will include an insert in each package with signs of contamination to watch for. The only exception to this is the Sweet Curls Oil Treatment Elixir. Since anhydrous (water free) products are resistant to microbes, this product is not preserved and should last at least a year on the shelf.

How do you test your products?
All products are tested on me first! If they pass my ok, I offer them to customers free (shipping charges do apply) from my Facebook Page or by private email. Often these products are offered to someone who already wants to order an established product, so shipping fees are either free (in the US, via USPS flat rate shipping, it if fits, it ships no additional charge!) or they are nominal (international packages are caluculated by weight, often the smaller sample sizes only add an additional couple of US dollars).
If you would like to be a part of testing new products, please like my Facebook page
https://www.facebook.com/sweetcurlselixirs
or send me an email at
sweetcurlselixirs [!at] comcast.net

Will you help me decide what products/additions to products might be best for my hair?
Absolutely. Send me a message and I will spend as much time as needed with you to help you decide!

Why is your packaging so plain?
Simple, fancy labels cost money. Even if I designed and printed my own, it would still add extra cost to the product (ink is crazy expensive these days). I make every effort to provide you with quality product while keeping the price as low as I can. Labels do not affect the product quality, so I see no need to spend extra money or time in making them fancy.
