Covid19 has impacted on stock control at The Curl Store, as suppliers around the world are experiencing supply chain issues and couriers are experiencing delays and disruptions. Unfortunately I do not always have updates to provide - but any information I do have will be included in this post - to ensure you all have the same info that I do!
All around the world, supply chains, logistics and resourcing remain heavily impacted by sporadic lock downs, restrictions, shipping delays and other issues. I understand the frustration this may cause when trying to source your fave curly products - but please understand these issues are beyond my control and (often) out the control of the brands I work with (which are mostly very small businesses creating small batch made products and can therefore feel the impacts much more deeply).
New Feature! If a product is out of stock - click the 'notify me when available' button and add your email - this won't add you to any mailing lists, it will simply alert you when the product is available. It is also helpful for me to know how many people are wanting something restocked (I'm always reviewing the stocklist to ensure I'm only stocking the most wanted items!)
Bounce Curl - At time of updating, only the Gel & Butta are out of stock, however some other items are running low and will likely go out of stock before next restock. Next restock is enroute and delivery is currently showing as due 6th June.
Curlsmith - All lines are flowing through weekly/fortnightly at this stage and are coming in various shipments.
Please note - I have been advised of pending price increases by Curlsmith and these will be incorporated into my pricing. I will also be ceasing stocking the travel size tubes as the price increases as well as increased shipping costs (which I have absorbed over the last year) mean these items are no longer a viable option for the store.
Some items in the purple line have been out of stock with the brand. These are now en route and ETA is mid-late June.
The Miracle Shield (new product) is en route and eta is mid-late June.
CurlyWorld - I have suspended this line and have no plans to restock.
Hair Dance - Brand has advised they do not currently have a couple of our most popular products available (incl the ACV Cleanser). Hair Dance will be restocked when the brand has product available.
Giovanni - Restock due Early June. Please note supplier is currently out of stock of Gel (full size) so the restock of this item is unknown (but I will restock as soon as supply is available). Travel size tubes remain available. If you are ordering only this item, please reach out to me for free shipping code.
Jessicurl - Restock due Early June.
Kinky Curly - As many are aware, stock on this line has been problematic with supplier, I am stocking every time stock becomes available, however this is not currently in regular supply. Next Restock due late June.
LUS - Due to an ongoing matter for LUS (unrelated to their actual products or to The Curl Store; LUS Brands is currently unable to be sold in Australia. LUS have advised that they will restock us as soon as the issue is resolved, however at this time I do not have an ETA, so have made the difficult decision to remove all products from the site. I continue to strongly support the brand and their products will be available again as soon as I can legally sell the brand in Australia.
Puff Cuff - Next Restock due July. Please note the scalp brush is not currently available (suggest checking the Scrunch It or Rizvan ones out though!)
Scrunch It: Please note due to current supply chain restraints at their end, not all colours/patterns will be available at all times. Next restock will be Late June 2022 - Floral will be restocked in all caps, but for most items Boho/Grey remain unavailable with the brand.
Treluxe - Restock due late June
Camille Rose - This line will be partially suspended due to ongoing stock issues. I will only show available lines in the store and will grow back the line as stock becomes more readily available.
