    I finished my first of two jars of Bronner Brothers Firm Hold Curling Gel.

    Instead of the Curl Origin mask, I got a RawSugar mask from Target. Better price point, no shipping fees.

    I've tried their body care, the soap bars and the coconut raw and mango body wash. I love the body wash, the scent is so comforting to me. Im waiting for my local target to carry the haircare items.

    Finished up a bottle of KBB Moisture Mist. Every time I go out of town I seem to find a Ricky’s. This time I bought Joico Kpak Intense Hydrator.

    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.

    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.

    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:

    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?

    3. 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.

    4. 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.

    My hair responded well to it. It was medium thickness and I really liked the light blueberry smell. This was my first time purchasing it, but I definitely plan to repurchase it when I reduce my DC stash a little more.

    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.

    I finished up a tube of KBB Sweet Ambrosia leave in. I really like this stuff. Hate that Target stopped selling KBB. Will finally have to start buying products that I can get only online. :sad:

    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.
