I've been working on a bunch of sample sizes but my stash isn't moving because I've also been getting a lot of samples from makeup orders.

I know I won't make my Q1 goals. Inventory update will be sometime next week.

I used up CRN Moisture Milk, SSI Pomegranate Pear Restorative Hair Mask, and threw away Affirm Moisturight Leave in conditioner.

I've used up, donated, and/or trashed 18 items for Quarter 1.

My goal for Quarter 2 is to reduce my stash by 5 items.

OMGoodness! I’m off the rails! I just bought ANOTHER dc. I bought the Mielle Mongongo Oil Hydrating Conditioner. Ok, I won’t buy ANYTHING else. Lemme go add it to my list...

Raw Sugar mask review

Good, especially as a prepoo, but because as a DC I get more moisture from the SM Manuka Honey masque, I won't repurchase.
  • Scent: light and unproblematic
  • Spreadability: Very creamy
  • Slip: typical . . . similar to the slip of SM's creamier masques
  • Detangle-ability: typical
  • Level of hydration and moisture after rinse out: slightly higher than typical
  • Other: A lot goes a long way (jar should last awhile); more economical than some masks (cost per ounce)

TL;DR version

I'm still aiming to get on top of my stash. Dubaidee4c's streamlined version of the MHM is helping me hone in on a small collection/category of products. I will trial fermented rice water in Q2.

---------

Detailed version:

I'm still here, I'm still working to get a hold of my stash, and I'm still in the place of seeing if using a Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3 hierarchical classification scheme will help. :smile:

Unexpectedly, something else is helping: Someone mentioned Dubaidee4c's easier method of doing the max hydration method. I'm 3 days in and I love it.

Dubaidee4c's method requires:
  • A clarifier/chelator
  • DIY Cherry Lola Caramel Treatment
  • A deep conditioner
  • A clay wash (can be DIY)
  • A spritz (since I'm not lowpo, I went with diluted AVJ spritz as recommended; I blended it with CurlyProverbz DIY tea)
  • A gel for wash and go's
I also use a heavy cream to help lay down frizz at my crown.

That's a very concise amount of products! :yep: And that helps!

I've decided to keep in the mix:
  • a detangling shampoo bar (22nd Century Shampoo Bar),
  • DevaCurl Decadence One Condition (for "emergency," as it cowashes, defines, and moisturizes my hair and I can skip styler with it in)
  • Jakeala Shea Amla Parfait (whipped Shea butter) for retention and days I don't wear a wash and go
  • Some kind of twisting cream (I'm eyeing the new Mane Choice Tropical Moringa glaze)
Lastly, in Q2 I'm going to trial fermented rice water for hair growth, health, and thickness.

All of this explains my next post. Lol.

On break
Purchased (see post above for the reason):
  • Anita Grant Marshmallow Rhassoul Clay cubes (from Hattache)
  • Henna Sooq organic rhassoul clay (from Hattache)
  • 22nd Century Natural Shampoo Bar x 2
  • RoyalHerbalOrganics (Etsy) fermented rice (ayurvedic) bundle (shampoo, conditioner, shampoo bar that I think can be used on the body/face, too)
  • CeCeNaturals Fermented Rice and Hibiscus Conditioning Mask (was on sale, and I ordered it before I discovered RoyalHerbalOrganics)
I will be doing a serious donation and purge soon! :smile:

I'm feeling clear about what I need and don't need for the first time in . . . forever maybe?!??

Deep exhale and smile. :smile:
 

YvetteWithJoy

On break
I did some stash reorganization and purging work this morning. :up: :yep: :clapping:

I refound a few things I forgot I had, such as the Sheaterra Morrocan Mud Poo.

I put all my samples and hair expo swag bag products in one drawer. I also dedicated one drawer to overflow skin and body care products.

I still have about 2 boxes of hair stuff to organize (my ayurvedic oils and powders and just a random bag from when I travel). But overall, this was a great start.

I made a donate bag and a "trash" bag for products to throw out. I can hardly wait to donate this stuff to a few women's shelters.

Anybody else have a tough time throwing stuff out?

My Aunt Jackie's is basically done. This reminds me of Eco Styler and Wetline. Once I use up some other gels, I'll probably buy it again.

Total to start Session 2 = 74

So um yeah. Starting session 2 with 1 less product than I did in session 1 despite using up so much. But I know it's because of all the hair samples I received over the past few months. And this session probably won't be any better. I'll be straightening my more often so I won't be washing and styling as much.

My goal for session 2 is to use up at least 15 products and get the overall stash down to under 65 products. I don't plan on buying much so hopefully I don't gt plagued with a bunch of samples.
