    Instead of creating a new thread for each session this will be the home for the entire challenge. Session 3 starts on page 24.

    ---------------------------------------------------

    If you want to join, Please thank this post and YOUR IN . Thanks Ladies and Lets USE IT UP in 2015

    Sessions are as follows:
    Session 1 - Jan. 1, 2015 - April 30, 2015 DONE!
    Session 2 - May 1, 2015 - August 31, 2015 DONE!

    Session 3 - Sept. 1, 2015 - December 31, 2015 IN PROGRESS!

    The Rules:

    1. Use the suggested categories or add categories of your own, list your stash within 5 days of joining the challenge. If you have a REALLY Big stash, put in a little at a time. But keep your list updated with the products used, given away, exchanged, etc.

    Posting a starting pic of your stash is optional. You can then update this "place holder" as we go along with details of what you have used, sold, exchanged and given away.

    2. For each category you can include 1 item for a staple. Mark this item. You can purchase 1 staple item per category to have 1 on hand without using a pass. If you stock up on staples anything beyond 1 item must be put in your stash list.

    3. Participants are allowed 1 product purchase per month

    4. The idea is to decrease your stash not increase it. You are free to swap, sell, throw away and give away products to your heart’s content as long as the stash is "decreasing". The aim is to be reasonable and realize that we do not need to buy so much stuff but rather be more disciplined with our regiments and learn to establish our staples by actually using the stuff instead of continually buying more !!!

    6. Also please check in every 2 weeks to let us all know how it is going and to get support so you do not fall off the challenge.

    7. If you fall off the wagon, update your stash list and get back in the game. The idea is to encourage better spending habits, make wise product purchases and to gain discipline in our regimens.


    Paste the following info if you’re up for the challenge

    1. What are your motivations for joining this challenge?

    2. List the products you hope to use up in your stash. Use your own categories.

    Suggested Categories:
    - Shampoos
    - Conditioners
    - Deep Conditioners
    - Leave Ins/Moisturizers
    - Oils & Essential Oils & Butters
    - Herbal & Ayurvedic Products
    - Styling products
    - Other

    3. Post a Pic of your "Stash". (Optional)

    4. What are your goal(s) for the session
    i.e. – reduce my stash by 20%
    i.e. – to have 1 shampoo, 2 conditioners, 3 styling products, etc.
    [Fill in your goal]


    I didn't @ anyone because I don't know who all was in the last session so please feel free to tag people :)

    oneastrocurlie Thanks for creating this. Don't worry - you're not going to mess anything up. You did quite alright by even starting it :)

    I'll be back when I get home tomorrow to inventory my stuff. I only have 4 categories: Conditioner, Shampoo, Protein and Relaxer. The biggest one is going to be conditioner because I only really have 1 or a few in the other categories...

    What are your motivations for joining this challenge?

    We (DD and I) have A LOT of products, and a lot of them haven't even been tried. I want to stop purchasing, find HGs in every category for myself and DD, and reduce our stash to the point that there is one, possibly two items for each category.

    List the products you hope to use up in your stash. Use your own categories.
    This session I plan to use up:
    - Shampoos: AOHSR, ORS Creamy Aloe

    - Deep Conditioners: Alterna Caviar Anti Aging Moisture Conditioner,Joico KPak Reconstruct Conditioner, L'Oreal Total Damage Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm, Komaza Protein Strengthener
    - Leave Ins/Moisturizers: Nioxin Thermal Bliss, 4 Naturals Afro Stretch Cream
    - Oils & Essential Oils & Butters: Homemade End All Hair Balm, Vatika

    1. To NOT buy anything outside of staple re-ups

    Tonight I used up the last of my Honey and Black Seed Keratin Heat Protect Cream on DD. Not repurchasing at this time. Will move on to the Living Proof product to see which is better.

    1. Motivation: Scale down my stash and prove to myself that I don't need 50 conditioners lol

    2. Product categories:

    Protein:

    - Hydrolyzed Quinoa

    Shampoo:

    - Mizani Neutralizing and Chelating Shampoo

    - VO5 Normalizing Shampoo

    - VO5 Silk Experiences Island Coconut Shampoo

    Relaxer:

    - 8 Affirm Relaxer tubs

    - 1 bottle of activator

    - 1/4 bottle of Preservo

    Conditioners: (I'm not including the ones I've already boxed up to ship to my brother and mother. Between the two there are 8 items total though)

    - 44 VO5 conditioners

    - 2.5 EVA NYC Hair Masks

    - 1 Liter Biolage Detangling Solution

    - 1 Deep Steep Weightless Moisture Conditioner

    - 2 Gud Softening Conditioners

    - 1 Beauty Without Cruelty Moisture Plus Conditioner

    - 1 Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Condtioner

    - 1 Nature's Gate Herbal Conditioner

    - 4.5 Yes to Carrots/Cucumbers/Bluberries/Coconut Conditioners

    - 1 Mill Creek Keratin Conditioner

    Leave in Conditioner:

    - Tresemme Leave In Spray

    4. Goal: I hope to use each brand of conditioner once so I can figure out which will be my staple. My goal is to have brands that are easily accessible and not expensive that work for me. I want 1 gentle chelating shampoo, 1 reliable brand of conditioner to cowash with, 1 relaxer system (I'm changing from Affirm to something else when these tubs are done) and possibly 1 protein treatment for relaxers (I'm really liking this Mill Creek but I also want to try another hydrolyzed protein) and possibly 1 deep conditioner (this will depend on what kind of conditioner comes with the new relaxer system).

    I've already made my one purchase for the month... actually, I got 5 different conditioners from 3 different places... not sure if that counts as only one purchase lol.

    Used up L'Oreal Sleek It Iron Straight Heatspray--it was ok, not repurchase worthy. Moving on to the next heat protectant spray in my stash.

    Finished up Komaza Protein Strengthener. Going to finish up our other protein con then try out something I can get on the ground, probably ApHogee 2 minute, see how that goes. I kind of hate ordering hair products.

    Ok. FOR REAL FOR REAL this time. I'm joining again. I fell off with this challenge last summer, but I was doing well and not purchasing anything...then BF happened and I completely blacked out and did too much. I'll add my stash later today (I just sent 2 boxes of products to my cousins and my sister and I'm sending another box next week smh).

    I used up my herbal essences totally twisted gel to shingle my hair this morning. After it air dries, I'll break the shingle cast by scraping the last bit of baby buttercreme off the edges of the jar and applying it to my hair for extra moisture.

    That will be two used up for this second Sunday of the year wash day.

    I finally finished off my Vatika oil this morning.

    I went through my stash and did some other getting-rid-of:

    throwing away the old Red Palm Oil
    moving Shea Butter and JBCO out of haircare and into skincare
    moving Jojoba oil into nailcare

    I also found some other stuff that was unlisted that I'm throwing out:
    Sulfur powder
    Liqui-Kelp
    Citric Acid
    Neem capsules

    I also found a couple of other unlisted items that I'll go put on my inventory list:
    SAA
    Burdock Root Extract
    Bentonite Clay
    Homemade End All Hair Balm

    DS needed his hair washed so I was able to use up the last of my AOHSR poo on him. Actually there was a little corner left so I washed DD's makeup brushes while she was in the shower and finished up the bottle. When I told her she gave me the biggest hug and said, "Thank you SO MUCH." :hug2:

    I also found a sample of L'Oreal Oleo Therapy shampoo and conditioner. I used the poo last week and the conditioner on DS tonight.

    I have to say, being in this challenge and actually using things up CREATES willpower that I didn't have before. It feels so good to decrease my stash and get closer to having only HGs or one to two items per category that I didn't even feel the usual pull to the haircare aisle that I always feel in the store. :woot:

    Not really officially joining the challenge but I am a minimalist and do not like to have a lot of things... using this post as a placeholder:

    Shampoo:

    Deep Conditioner:
    Nexxus Keraphix
    Silk Dreams Mocha Silk Infusion
    Silk Dreams Vanilla Silk Moisture Cream
    KeraMinerals Conditioner

    Styling/Leave-in:
    Proclaim activator gel - I use this in attempt to slick back my hair when I am too lazy to do my hair.
    Silk Dreams Wheat Germ Butter Conditioner
    Silicon Mix Bambu Leave-in Conditioner
    Oil Sheen (Thanks PatTodd).

    I have minimal amounts of everything listed so I am excited about keeping my minimalist lifestyle.

    Ok so... I fell off the wagon a little bit today.

    I went looking for a leave in spray (VO5 to be exact) because I just really feel like my hair will be better for it, even though co-washing seems to be enough. Needless to say I didn't find what I was looking for but bought another one (a discontinued Tresseme leave in until I find what I'm looking for) and 8 other VO5 conditioners because they were ones that are discontinued I believe. Anyway, I found one of my conditioners is actually a shampoo so now I have 3 shampoos and 43 VO5 conditioners lol. I updated the above list to reflect these changes.

    The good things are that:

    1. I'm almost done with a product (Yes to Carrots Pampering Conditioner)

    2. I'm going to be cowashing more because my I'm going to be participating in workouts with my daughter's track team. I cowash every time I sweat so I'll be cowashing 5 days a week starting next week (I run 3 days a week already). This will use up conditioners at least for the next 4.5 months. It'll be interesting to see how my hair responds to that...

    I'm trying people :lol:
