This is not my entire stash unfortunately. Just the products I brought with me to college, still have a deep freezer full back home but I digress :rolleyes:

This is 149 products - 60 products will get me down to 89 products. Hopefully enough to fit in my 5 hair bins and making the move back home at the end of next year a little less of a hassle.

On break
Holding my spot, I think.

I definitely need to manage my stash, but I'm not sure how just yet.

At the moment I have divided my stash into what I call Tier 1 products (holy grails and staples), Tier 2 products (stuff that has great ingredients that I haven't trialed sufficiently . . . or stuff that I like a lot but wouldn't call a staple), and Tier 3 products (mainly stuff I got in swag bags from hair events that I wouldn't have likely chosen myself, items with ingredients I don't like, etc.).

Where to go from there, I don't know, because I have truly lost my desire to experiment and use much of the stuff in Tier 2 and Tier 3.

My hair is thriving with Tier 1 products, and I'm enjoying going on "auto-pilot" products-wise, so to speak, and knowing exactly what to reach for.

I'll keep thinking about the way forward. :smile:

You could donate the Tier 2 and Tier 3 products to a women's shelter.

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 I found in my current stash (the * will identify the products found if the color changes), and products in purple will denote products that I am targeting to use up for the current quarter. I will also include the dates used, given away, repurposed, purchased or added in parentheses.

5. By the end of the challenge, what is the total number of products you hope to have in your stash? 150. Ultimately, I would like to have 6 products in each category & type.

*I am participating in all sessions
*My goals are to STOP buying products except to replace/reup, and to reduce/eliminate the number of backups in my stash
*When I use up/throw away/give away a product I will gray it out
*When I acquire a product it will be in red unless it is a direct reup in which case it will stay black
* Following is my inventory. I want to be down to one product for each type/purpose (except I’d like 2 DCs and my 2 hair sprays work together), so I want to get rid of extra spray heat protectants and serums and not have more than one (or two :look:) backups

I want to participate in all sessions. I can't gather a list at the moment.
I need to reduce all that i have in my possession and I don't want to purchase anything more for my hair and honestly I need nothing.

I do have one big purchase in the summer I will be purchasing which is Wen Pomegranate. That will be all. I will post up as I use up.

Used up Sarenzo's Pumpkin w/Protein Deep Conditioner. Not a repurchase.

It makes my hair strong but hard with absolutely no sign of moisture.

Please count me in. Under my sink is brimming with products. I am in for all sessions. Can post all right now but will return.

My categories are: DCs, conditioners, shampoos and stylers. I mixed a few batches of my own curly pudding and I need to use those up as well.

On this challenge, I am going to try to finalize my regimen and to avoid “experimenting” as much as I have.

During my second to last wash day, I tried some new products that I must have been allergic to because my scalp was on fire itching. I think I figured it out that it was the Hairveda oil and green tea moisturizer. I'm going to see if the ingredients are consistent throughout the whole line and if they are, I'm going to give away the products to family to see if they have better luck.

I gave my SIL three products today: SSI Pomegranate Pear oil in gel hair pudding, a jar of CD Rhassoul Clay Softening Hair mask, and KBB Super Duper Hydrating Cream.

I used up a bottle of SSI Pomegranate Pear Hydrating curl spray and MO Honey and Ginger Styling gel.
