    I have been using the SM Poo since being natural but I use to love the heck outta CON Green back in the days. I wondering if the Argan Original is comparable to the Old Green?

    According to what I've read here, the CON Argan Original was the closest thing to the old CON. Now that they've added undesirable ingredients, CON Argan is no good. I'm still on my last CON Green, so I haven't used the CON Argan Original yet, but I've bought two 20oz bottles.

    Using some AVG to help with a bad heat rash. It really helps with drying it up.

    I donated my blue magic grease to my dad. He'll put anything on his hair.

    The Shea moisture professional cowash gives me so much build up. I'll be glad when it's gone. There's only a few uses left. Then I can buy the liter of conditioner I actually want: biolage ultra hydradource.

    Still working steady on the Miss Jessie's baby buttercreme. I use a small blob to moisturize after every wash. A little goes a long way.

    I'm doing the ApHogee 2 Step treatment on DD this weekend. I had only one packet and didn't feel it would be enough so I bought another packet. Adding it to the list but will subtract them both this weekend. :drunk:

    Washed but didn't use anything up. I put a dent in the Tresemme Undone tonight using it to detangle. Not sure when I will use it again so it will be a while before I use it up. I twisted my hair up using the MyHoneyChild Type 4 Hair Crème. I probably have one more use of that. I forgot I wanted to use up the NO Hair Balm. I plan to wash again on Sunday so I will try to use it up then. I think I can use up the Type 4 Hair Cream, the NO Balm and the Burnt Sugar Pomade by the end of July.

    When you do let us know. I've used slippery elm powder and stopped because it was so fine and got stuck in my hair... I used a lot though. I'd like to know how the others go.

    Hopefully getting my hair braided on Saturday morning... seriously hoping...

    If not I'll wash again on Saturday and try to use the APB ultra conditioner to deep condition and maybe use something else.

    I may not use iy up, but I'll make a dent in it!

    I got a free sample in the mail of Dark and Lovely LOC system. I'm going to wait to use it though. The way my Shea Moisture Professional Cowash conditioner gives me build up, it wouldn't be fair to try it. I'll wait until I buy my new conditioner to try the liquid oil cream system.

    I finally finished up my koils by nature deep conditioner. It took forever to use it up because a little goes a long way. This is a definite repurchase.

    Ugh...okay, my Marleys are out, my goal is to keep my hair out for the rest of the year so I can use up some stuff. I'm going to use some of these DCs as rinse outs and wash twice a week so I can use up some stuff.

    How many times have I said this? :rofl:

    Finished off Jakeala Honey mask...the sticky version. I have a jar of the new formula to crack open. Forgot to mention her leave in mist was a hit! Definitely future repurchase.

    Washed but didn't use up anything :sad:

    Used the sample of the hot oil treatment but I probably have 2 more uses of that even being heavy handed. And still have 1 more use of the NO balm. I used a little bit more of the Burnt Sugar Pomade. July should be a good month of reduction.

    Since my conditioner is so low, I'm going to Ulta after work to buy a new one. Depending on what they have, I'll pick out a cheap one to supplement the expensive one I know I'm going to buy.

    APB is having a 30% sale for July 4th. I will be buying two jars of Ayuverdic Mud Mask (16 oz). Trying to see if this should be my deep conditioner or will I be sticking with NG.

    J. Monique Naturals also has a sale going on with items marked for sale from about 20% to almost 50% off. I know I'm getting body scrubs. I would like to try her deep conditioners, which are a pretty good deal right now, but that would be adding to my stash. :whip: That would mean I haven't learned my lesson yet. However, I haven't even been here a month yet. :supergrin: What to do?:thought:
    Of course, this would mean I definitely won't need any deep conditioners until Black Friday sales.

    Halfway through the year and halfway through this session and I'm happy to report I have made good progress on my goals for my stash. I've already used up all except 3 of the samples I had. Already used up 2 leave-ins and currently working on 2 more. I also am about 75% done with the oil I'm working on and started on another one. Not sure if I'll finish my shampoo because one of the samples I have is a shampoo and it's a pretty generous size. I am going to work on the color care supplies for the last session because I have no intentions of coloring my hair any time soon.

    I'm thinking of purging some items that I know I don't/won't really use. Even though I'm a long way from my length goals, my regimen is pretty much in maintenance mode. There's a lot of stuff I have that I know I'll never really use up.

    I'm going to Sally's this evening because I have a $5 coupon I have to use. But I think I'm just going to buy some Croc Clips because I've broken most of the other ones I've purchased.

    Washed tonight and did an oil rinse with the oil sample and the tresemme undone. There is a lot of oil in that sample bottle so its not done yet.

    Twisted with the NO balm and the oyin burnt sugar pomade. Used up the NO balm. I will replace it in the fall. I really like it.

    I will wash again on Monday so may focus on the MHC type 4 hair cream.
