Mixtress' natural hair journey and science background lead to expansion into specialty hair care shop on Etsy
After transitioning for 5 months in 2008, I did a big chop, cutting off 9 inches of relaxed hair and leaving me with a 3 inch TWA (teeny weeny afro). As a child, I had natural hair, but now I had to take care of finding the right products myself. At first, I used only mass produced commercial products but soon started also using a few products that I created myself for my own 4A type hair. Early during my natural hair journey, I gave myself the name JDNatlady (my real name is Aquannette Chinnery). I immersed myself in learning all about what my hair needed and how to take care of it. I had a FOTKI (photo site showing my natural hair journey), was on Nappturality (a natural hair discussion board but I used a different name) and was enjoying my natural hair journey.
In 2011, my company (JDNatlady's Creations, LLC) of which I am a sole member was formed to be able to make and sell products here in the USVI. My background in chemistry and biochemistry influenced me to continue experimenting and creating, so that I expanded the types of products that I was making. In 2011 and 2012, I started making many more products and product development is always continuing. My manufacturing is not done at home but at my physical (brick and mortar) workshop/store.
Last year, I found out about Etsy. Etsy provided the perfect opportunity to reach out beyond just my little island. This new shop is a specialty hair shop that I created because the original Etsy shop I opened last year grew so much that I wanted to make it easier for my hair products customers to find what they need without having to look through the large number of soaps, lotions, body creams, etc. that are in that other Etsy shop. In addition to my store here on St. Thomas and local shows in which I participate, I love being able to reach new people and returning customers here on Etsy and to expand my Etsy shop offerings by adding to them my ever expanding types of products designed for mostly types 3 and 4 hair. Many of the products also work on all hair types from highly textured to transitioning to relaxed to naturally straight. Some of them are also dual use and may be used on the hair or body.
I love working with all sorts of butters and oils and have started working with some of the more unusual or exotic ones. Some of the products that I make have chemicals such as cetyl alcohol, BTMS-50, etc, but I try to formulate in a way that allows me to limit the chemicals to only those that are necessary, and lots of them are from plant sources. I enjoy using the products that I make and enjoy hearing about how much others enjoy using them. Let me help you along your hair journey by letting my shop be one of your sources for your natural hair care needs.
Owner, Creator, Mixtress
Enjoying my natural hair journey and sharing others' journey by having my hair products be a part of their hair care experience
I have a shop as JDNatlady on Etsy at http://jdnatladyscreations.etsy.com that has bath and body products and some or all of the hair products here (look in the natural hair products section). While I have only a few sales in this new shop that you are currently visiting, I have many more sales of hair products that show up at http://jdnatladyscreations.etsy.com.
I have another shop as JDNatladyJewelry called JewelrybyJDNatlady at http://JewelrybyJDNatlady.etsy.com that features the handmade jewelry that I make for JDNatlady's Creations, LLC. I am also on Etsy as JDNatladyKnitCrochet with the Etsy shop http://jdnatladycrochetknit.etsy.com that features crocheted and knitted fashions and home decor. .
I make everything here in the U.S. Virgin Islands at the workshop/store for JDNatlady's Creations, LLC, which is a smoke free and pet free environment.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
1. credit card
3. credit card through Paypal
4. e-check through Paypal
5. US Postal Service (USPS) Money Order
6. OTHER (see below)
Etsy processes credit cards directly or, if you use credit card through Paypal, Paypal processes your transaction by credit card without you having to sign up for Paypal.
If you use e-check through Paypal, you must notify me that your payment has cleared your bank account before I am able to ship so there usually is a several day delay in shipping when using this method of payment
If you use a USPS money order, there will be a delay in receiving your item due to me having to wait unti I receive your money order via mail and cash it at the post office before I may ship your item. This may add a few days to more than a week before I am able to ship your items out due to the time it takes for your mail to be received here.
Once your payment clears via Paypal, your item(s) will be shipped within 1-3 business days (unless the item is a pre order or made to order and then you will need to check the item's listing to find out when to expect shipment or it may be less than 1-3 business days if that is what the listing states). If there is any delay expected (for an item expected to ship within 1-3 business days), however, I anticipate being able to convo you to notify you. If you request any changes to the item as listed, there may be a delay. If you use a money order, your item will not be sent until 1-3 days after the money order is received for items that ship within 1-3 business days. If your item is made to order or a pre order, your item will be shipped within the time shown in the listing.
OTHER as a payment method for this shop means one of the following: (1) e-check via Paypal (which takes 3-5 business days or longer for the check to clear and the money to be made available; (2) if you are on St. Thomas, you may pay via cash; or check drawn on a local Virgin Islands bank that I may cash before sending out your purchase; (3) if you are in the Virgin Islands, you may pay via check drawn on a local Virgin Islands bank that I may cash before sending out your purchase; or (4) if you were already a customer of JDNatlady's Creations, LLC from whom I have already taken checks and you convo me to request that you be able to pay by check.
Shipping is via US Postal Service (USPS) by First Class Mail, or if required, due to weight, then by Priority Mail.
I would love if you would leave feedback. When considering leaving a comment about shipping time, please keep in mind that shipping is via USPS from a U.S. territory outside the U.S. mainland and shipping may take longer than we both would wish, so that will affect how long it takes for your shipment to arrive once I put it in the mail.
If you are an international buyer, in all instances you are solely responsible for any customs, import, VAT, or duty charges and any such charges are not included in the purchase price.
If any buyer wishes to have the package being mailed insured, please contact me by convo before you purchase or request a custom listing so that I may put your item(s) into a special, custom listing that will include insurance for an additional fee.
Refunds and Exchanges
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that, if packaging is shown in any photo of an item, there may be some variation from the item as pictured, so if this might be an issue for you, please convo me. Also, these products are handmade or handcrafted, are handpoured, and may be handcut, so there may be some variation from the item that is pictured. The beauty of handmade or handcrafted items is that they are not mass produced to look exactly alike.
For most products, I may have more than the amount listed, so convo me if you need to set up a custom order.
Many people find that my products make great gifts, so convo me if this is a gift for someone, so I may do my best to make it extra special (gift bag, wrapping, etc). If you purchase one of JDNatlady's Goody Kit and it is a gift for someone, please let me know if you want to have a note from you included.
Many of my products also may make great favors for a wedding, bridal shower, party, or corporate event, so convo me if you would like to set up a custom order. If you want to order a combination of items and think we might be able to work out less expensive shipping than ordering each item separately, please convo me and we may be able to work out a custom listing.
If you are doing a destination wedding, party, corporate or other event here on St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, convo me if you would like to arrange to do a custom order and pick it up on island instead of shipping it up there for you to bring down in your luggage.
