    Gave Pantene Beautiful Lengths conditioner away. I'm going to try to use only deep conditioners now and that didn't do it for deep conditioning... Moving on to Keracare Humecto.

    I used up a tiny hotel size conditioner I had in my gym bag. It wasn't on the stash. Actually, I have another hotel size conditioner and shampoo in the gym bag. I can cowash at the gym to get rid of them.

    I am one use or less done with four products. Sooo close...

    I did use up a sample of Marula Oil. It wasn't on my stash inventory list though.

    Adding Neutrogena T/Sal shampoo. Will be using it once a week until it's gone so I can see what difference it makes on my scalp... will definitely be gone before this challenge is over. Also bought a packet of African Pride Deep Conditioner... I have 16 packets of conditioner now and I think I'll start using them in October.

    Used up the ion hard water conditioner. Used the As I Am cleansing pudding on wash day. It will be a while before I use that up. Focusing on using up some oils. Need to see if I can use up a sample or two.

    Finished up Ion Color Solutions Clarifying Shampoo. Works great but smells horrific. Will never ever repurchase

    Picked up 2 samples sizes of Redken conditioner.

    Used up As I Am coconut co wash. Not a repurchase. I'd rather use regular conditioner to co wash

    Adding 4 more samples:

    - My DNA Detangling Conditioner
    - Mane n' Tail Deep Moisturizing Conditioner
    - BB Intense Conditioner
    - Motions Active Moisture Plus Conditioner

    I put my Keracare Humecto and Nairobi Humecta-Sil to the side. I'm going to keep those in my stash for relaxers and to correct any ill effects from conditioners I try... I'll be buying those in tubs when these bottles run out. I have 22 samples now... I don't think I can find any more I want to try that come in those sizes :lol: They should last until the end of the year, the end of this challenge. Then I can start all over next year with new products :)

    Used up both of the Aphogee 2 minute treatment samples. Trying to hit the oil hard. That's about it.

    My hair has been straight for almost 3 weeks. Washed just today. I almost finished a sample of creme brulee but that was it :-/

    And last week I got another 2 Giovanni conditioners. They were still $2 for 10. I couldn't just leave them there lol.

    In these braids so I haven't used anything up yet. However I am trying to put my Tresemme conditioner into a spray bottle so that way I can use it while in braids. Hopefully in another two weeks I will use up a deep conditioner of some sort.

    Girl everywhere and nowhere in particular. The Tresemme Conditioner I got from Jet.com playing around with the website and then couldn't say no to the savings. I got the Hair Milk from Carolsdaughters.com somehow two separate sales added up in my cart but I aint asking no question :coffee:

    Oh no, three months won't do it for me. This challenge will be long term for me until I get down to only staples. One day at a time...:lol:

    Hmmm... I didn't think of it that way... I joined this challenge this year because I felt like I had so much stuff that it was overwhelming... Also, I thought it was going to curb me buying things all the time. I literally have nothing left that I started with at the beginning but I still have enough of everything to last me until the challenge ends for this year because I've been buying stuff. It didn't curb my impulse at all :lol: I'm going back and forth about joining next year because after the first week in January I know I'm going to have like 20 different hair treatments and my stash is just going to grow from there :lol: Maybe I should do like you and just stay in long term since I know I'm not going to stop purchasing...
