Random Spotlight: Purgasm Shop & Review #11 of Wild Cherry Poo Bar


In this Random Spotlight, I rave about the poo bar in my wash day post. So when I asked Ms. Nicole to be featured and she said yes I was more then ecstatic!!! Upon doing some research on Nicole website I learned that she is a Mix tress wonder & a all natural DIYer that has always been one for mixing things together!

Here's how the interview went?

1. When was your company established? 
 Purgasm Shop was established June 2012. ( My first product line was established January 2011)

2. What was the reason and/or inspiration to start this line?
 I wanted to create a product line that was all natural (I also use many organic ingredients), deliciously scented, and use nonconventional ingredients to show others how versatile and wonderful natural herbs and botanicals can be.  I also wanted the line to be known for how well it worked and to create an experience where people could truly feel in love with my products and rest assured that the products are not full of parabens, mineral oil, phthalates and other toxic chemicals!

3. Why haircare?
 Although my product line focuses on more than hair care, I felt that it was important to create a full beauty experience. Many naturals are looking for new and more diverse products, and I know how frustrating it was for me during my transition to find products that actually worked well and had ingredients that I felt comfortable using. So, it seemed natural to expand the Purgasm Shop line to include hair care.
4. Are you natural?
  If so why and please tell me about your journey? Yes, I have been natural for about 3 ½ years. I began transitioning in November 2009 and big chopped in May 2010. I initially wore a TWA for about a month and then decided to shave my hair (similar to Amber Rose) and I wore it shaved on and off for about 2 years. Each time I would try to let it grow, I would get frustrated because I didn’t know how to care for it-and so I’d shave it off again. I finally made a conscious decision to embrace my hair, get to know my texture, and how to manage it and I sat in the barber’s chair for the last time on 06/28/2012. I’ve been growing it out ever since and it’s healthy and I’m happy.

5. What is your target goal?
 My target goal is to make the Purgasm Shop brand a household name. I intend for my brand to be known as the pinnacle of bath and beauty for the discriminant shopper who only wants the best in quality, value, and ingredients. I also intend to have items sold in retail locations around the world. 

6. Since you big chop and transitioned could you give the readers any tips and tricks that you learned?  The biggest tip that I have is to be patient. Know that it will get frustrating-but if you stick with it, it will be well worth it. Also-Moisture, Moisture, Moisture! Most curly/kinky hair types (mine included) crave moisture. Find the products that help your hair maintain a healthy moisture balance (if you're adventurous-experiment and find your own)! 

 7. Is there anything else you would like the readers to know?
 I’m mother to an amazing 4 year old, I’m a vegetarian, a wine and music lover, and I’ve been creating things for as long as I can remember. I lovingly conceptualize and hand make each item in my product line and I am very proud of what I’ve created thus far. Purgasm Shop products are purposely created to give you results each time you use them and I’m very happy with all of the positive feedback that I receive when someone is introduced to my product line. For others with goals of starting a natural hair and/ or bath & body business, my biggest advice is to be authentic! Don’t try to copy what everyone else is doing. Follow your passion and create from your heart!

 My Review: This is the very first poo bar that I've used and I absolutely loved it. The smell was light and refreshing! It lathered up will without much effort. I got excellent slip. I mean slip so good shed hair was running out underneath the running water. So when it was time to detangle it was minimal shed hairs. My hair was soft and you can tell it pack alot of nutrients because my hair was moist afterwards!! Love love love it!
 Will I be re purchasing it? Yes for 7.19 dollars it is inexpensive and a little goes a long way!!!!

For those who seen the earlier price of 5$ you can still get it I missed up on the original price which is 7.19. But if you go over to Purgasm Shop now and say Random Jamaican sent you, Ms. Nicole will give you the price I missed up on plus discounted shipping for today only!!!



  1. These ingredients sound delicious. I like what she said about being patient. That is truly the key to dealing with natural hair.

  2. OMG...I'm going to be flat out broke. when I get done reading from all these amazing features you share with us. These women are amazing and inspirational. And Nicole the owner of purgasm is no exception. I'm headed over to check out her store, but first I must add her to my list (if shes not already there). Thanks to the both of you for sharing. Take care.
