Natural Hair Academy (NHA) Update

Hey Maicurlies,

So a few weeks ago I very excitedly and perhaps a little prematurely wrote a post about how I won a Giveaway from the Natural Hair Academy. I say a little prematurely because I was sadly informed that I would not be able to get the Giveaway due to issues with shipping. (Pass the tissues please!)

On the day when Kim wanted to send me the package she found out that shipping the goods would pretty much cost an arm, a leg and then some! Now, I still officially won however like I said due to shipping costs I was unable to receive the goodies. 

Was I a little disappointed? Yes, but I do understand where Kim is coming from. When she explained how much it would cost (I will keep the number to myself) I was pretty shocked, although I know shipping can be a pain in the you-know-what. The astronomical shipping price is because of all the goodies in the package and the weight of it. The more it weighs the more it will cost and there is usually a weight limit per package meaning you might need to ship things in several packages = even more costs. The NHA is also a pretty small and new, like I said I understand their situation. 

Kim did offer  me an alternative in place of the Giveaway which was really nice of her (thank you Kim!).  She sent me the monetary value of the Giveaway  as a “gift card”. Like I said I completely understand why she could not send me the package especially comparing how much Kim said the Giveaway was valued at in contrast to the shipping, let me tell you shipping was about 3 – 6 times more which is crazy! 

Anywho, I just wanted to update you all because I made quite a big deal about winning, wanting to do an un-boxing post and video as well as a review of some of the products in package. I didn’t want you all to think I received the package and didn’t bother sharing 🙂 

Right Maicurlies, back to editing my next video! I hope you have a lovely day! 

Thanks

I won the NHA “For The DIY Naturalista” Giveaway

Hey Maicurlies,

So the excitement still hasn’t rubbed off yet! YES, I WON A GIVEAWAY!!! 😀

NHA Giveaway

                                                            NHA Giveaway

I am so super happy it is almost pathetic how happy I am LOL. So let first set the scene…as you may know I am an Instagram (IG) fan and a good curlfriend of mine ended up tagging me on a giveaway hosted by the Natural Hair Academy (NHA). If you haven’t heard of the NHA before I suggest that you visit their site. They have an awesome collection of information, inspiration and opportunities to connect with other naturalistas. Apart from their site and IG page you can also connect with NHA through twitter their YouTube Channel.

So the giveaway was basically created for those interested in all things DIY. Of course my curlfriend thought “hey Mai would probably like this!” and very kindly tagged me and I in-turn tagged some of my friends and followed the guidelines for the giveaway. One week later I was surprised to find out yesterday (9th March) that I won!!!! I am usually never lucky with things like this so I broke out in my happy dance LOL. I want to once again thank my friend Necey for thinking of me and tagging me which got me to join and I also want to give a big shout-out again to the NHA! The giveaway is HUGE!!! No…really it is HUGE!!! Thank you so much. I promise to put everything I receive to good use.

I wanted to share the box with Necey but she insists that I enjoy the box by myself so I will send her a few of my DIY mixes instead, as a thank you :).

I plan to do an unboxing post & video once my package arrives. I also will be doing a “product review” of the Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle shampoo & conditioner since I have never tried them before.

I am like a child LOL you all should have seen my reaction when Necey told me I won :D. I contacted Kim from NHA and she informed me that my package will be sent out by this week and hopefully should arrive in 2 weeks. (Big smile on my face again!) So stay tuned Maicurlies for the unboxing post & video! 😀

Have you ever won anything from the NHA? Anywhere else? If so what did you get, I would love to hear from you!
