    Use It or Lose It!
    If you have too many products in your refrigerator, cabinets, storage bins, etc., then this challenge is :flowers:. It is time to strategically reduce your product stash by using it up or losing it by giving it away. So join me in this effort by responding to the following:

    1. Like this post.


    2. Which session(s) are you participating in?:
    • All
    • 1st Quarter (January - March)
    • 2nd Quarter (April - June)
    • 3rd Quarter (July - September)
    • 4th Quarter (October - December)

    3. List the products you plan to use or lose and place them in categories (ex. Shampoos, DCs, Leave-Ins, etc.):


    4. Explain what system you will use to update your list (i.e., different colors/symbols to denote used/purchased items or items added from your current stash):


    5. Outline your criteria for if/when you will use your pass to purchase 3 products/quarter (12 products/year):


    Please don't forget to update your list when products are used, given away or purchased in any of your listed categories. Also, please check in with us at least once a month to let us know how things are going.


    :thumbsup: We Can Do This! :thumbsup:

    Outline your criteria for if/when you will use your pass to purchase 3 products/quarter (12 products/year): Aside from Black Friday, I will purchase when I'm below my goal, or when there is a sale of 25% or higher on either a staple or something I have been dying to try, or if I run out of a category.

    2. Which session(s) are you participating in?
    • 1st Quarter (January - March)

    3. List the products you plan to use or lose and place them in categories (ex. Shampoos, DCs, Leave-Ins, etc.):

    DC
    Claudie's Normalizing Conditioner
    Komaza Care Protein
    Naturelle Grow Herbal Blends-unopened
    L'oreal Damage Erase Balm-opened
    Shea Moisture Manuka Honey-opened
    Camille Rose Algae Renew DC-unopened
    Mielle Organics Babassu Conditoner x 4 (will gift one to hair buddy)-unopened
    Naturelle Grow Sweet Greens-unopened
    Curls Dynasty Pumpkin Mint DC-unopened
    Bambu Conditoner

    Oils

    The Mane Choice Growth Oil x 2 (1 unopened)

    Leave-Ins/Moisturizer/Butters
    Camille Rose Almond Jai twisting butter
    Nefertti Leave in spray x 3 (will gift one to hair buddy)-Unopened
    Shea Moisture Yucca and Plantain Hair milk
    Oyin Hair Dew
    Shea Moisture Kids Mango and carrot conditioner
    Keraveda Creme Brulee

    4. Explain what system you will use to update your list (i.e., different colors/symbols to denote used/purchased items or items added from your current stash):
    I position my products on the shelf in order of how I plan to use them; I use the top shelf to place the only products I will allow myself to use for that period until it's finished. (I have a cute silver platter I got from dollar tree that I place them on; the display give me a salon feel, and keeps me focused so I don't jump from product to product on the shelf). This method worked well for me in 2016

    5. Outline your criteria for if/when you will use your pass to purchase 3 products/quarter (12 products/year):
    • When I get below the half way mark of using my deep conditioners I will entertain the thought of buying more. I currently have 11 jars to finish, that is the most that I have ever had at one time. I like products, but that is too many of the same category of items, even for me. I don't want to do that again.
    • I have TGIN and Mane Choice egyptian line on my wish list of deep conditioners to try AFTER I get through the majority of my DC stash.

    4. Explain what system you will use to update your list (i.e., different colors/symbols to denote used/purchased items or items added from your current stash):

    1. I will use green to indicate newly added items
    2. I will use red to indicate items used up, given or thrown away



    5. Outline your criteria for if/when you will use your pass to purchase 3 products/quarter (12 products/year):
    I don't have much of a stash so I will use a pass if I run out of a product.
    I will also use a pass if I go to a hair show
    I will use a pass if I find a really good sale price.

    Thanks for hosting this challenge, @trclemons. :smile:

    I'm in for the second, third, and fourth quarters.

    About the First Quarter: Purchasing Items for a Regimen versus Just Purchasing Products to Try

    I finally nailed my regimen activities (what to do, when, and how). Hooray!

    However, I think I can find a few optimal-performing products for my hair that take those regimen steps to the next level. Because I don't want to do a bunch of product trialing like I did last year, I have narrowed this year's intended future purchases down to:
    • Jakeala (Etsy.com) hair products (will trial these products for January)
    • 22nd Century Natural Woman products (will trial these products for February)
    • The Mane Choice products, especially the Ancient Egyptian line (will trial these products in March)
    • The GreenBeauty products, particularly the REAL protein treatment
    So, during the FIRST quarter only, I will permit myself to invest in these products. By the end of March, I should have made some discoveries regarding staple/HG for the steps of my regimen.

    I hope to post my empties during the first quarter. The more, the merrier!

    Then after the first quarter, it's on: This stash is going down! :yep: It's already gotten SO MUCH BETTER via last year's challenge. :smile:

    1 Infusium 23 Repair and Renew Liquid Leave In

    I have a ton of carrier and essential oils that I'm not really trying to remove from my stash so I won't add these.

    4. Explain what system you will use to update your list (i.e., different colors/symbols to denote used/purchased items or items added from your current stash): I'll changed my used items to purple. Hopefully I don't buy any new productions because once I use my stash I want to do all homemade stuff

    5. Outline your criteria for if/when you will use your pass to purchase 3 products/quarter (12 products/year): Trying not to buy new stuff because I want to switch to all homemade stuff.

    5.

    How do you like the Mane Choice Ancient Egyptian line? How is the scent?

    ETA: A customer rep told me the line will be available at Sally's, around the middle of January. I am PRAYING that this line is amazing for my hair and can be my go-to line so I can drastically reduce online ordering. The YouTube reviews are so promising. I know all heads of hair respond differently to various products, so I'm trying to keep my hope reasonable. Lol. :smile:

    I've only tried it once about three weeks ago so I don't have a big opinion on it yet. I like the collection but don't know if I love it yet. My favorite product so far was the hair mask. I will say I prefer this line a lot better than her previous one (the easy on the curls/soft as can be). I wasn't able to really detangle with those. I recall that wash day being super simple so I must didn't have any issues with detangling. The scent is okay to me (it has a slight fruit scent) not offensive at all and more on the light side. That's great news about Sally's,!totally makes me want to give more thought about the hair mask.

    I think I'm here too. I really contemplated it but instead of trying to use up my stash (which I am going to do because it's small), I think I'm going to work harder on restricting what I buy. Joining this challenge in the past helped me realize the problem I was having was trying to use stuff up but not easing up on what I was buying... so I had to stay for the whole challenge/keep joining :lol:

    I'm going to see if my old hair dresser will take the hair products I don't use. I hope she doesn't look at me like I've lost my mind. I mainly don't use them due to the scent. I wonder if she'll appreciate being able to try them on her hair to see if she wants to invest in them.

    Just finished washing my hair and finished up two products, my Obia Naturals deep conditioner and Qhermet Biologics Aethiopika Hydrate & Twist Butter. I could see myself repurchasing both in the future but I think I have enough products to see me through a while.

    Given away: Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker, and DevaCurl Decadence Ultra Defining Gel
    To: My sister-in-law so she can do my niecy's hair

    For gels, this leaves me with Uncle Funky's Daughter Curly Magic at home.

    Due to the give away, I feel permitted to make hair care product purchase I did not outline earlier. Not sure what to get. UFD Curly Magic will flake on my hair if I apply to much, whereas CRN Curl Maker and DevaCurl Decadence Ultra Defining Gel NEVER flake on my hair. However, instead of simply replenishing them, I am thinking about trying DevaCurl Arc Angel gel or the SheScentIt Green Tea Curl Defining Oil Free Gel.

    I retwisted my two strand twists with the TVO Twist Creme. I have one more use of this cream :yay: I will wash next weekend so that should be that.

    I've been using the butter on my legs. It really is a very nice butter.

    Do you not like the cream? I had her Krazy coconut condish and some other lotion that were so horrible I threw them away.

    It's not terrible. It's probably a 6 or 7. It just doesn't do much for my hair. It's not very moisturizing for my hair. So it doesn't work great for twist outs and it's just so so of my twist.

    I had her whole low porosity line. It was OK but it didn't work as well as I had wished.

    4. Explain what system you will use to update your list (i.e., different colors/symbols to denote used/purchased items or items added from your current stash): Products in red will denote ones that have been used, given away or repurposed, products in #green will denote purchased products (the # will identify purchased products if the color changes), products in *blue will denote products that have been added from my current stash (the * will identify purchased products if the color changes), and products in purple will denote products that I am targeting to use up for the year. I will also include the dates used, given away, repurposed, purchased or added in parentheses.


    5. Outline your criteria for if/when you will use your pass to purchase 3 products/quarter (12 products/year): I will only use my pass to purchase products in categories where 50% of the original inventory is gone.
