    Gave my sister my Argan oil conditioner. I like it, but she was here and loved it and it's her birthday.

    Gave my DD the remainder of my Eco Naturals gel because her cheap gel ran out.

    Lol, The Paul Mitchell conditioner isn't a repurchase for me either. I like it but for the price and tiny bottle, I'll keep looking.

    Used up my mini Eva NYC dry shampoo and replaced it with a mini Batiste dry shampoo. My hair is in crochet braids until after I move in June and I'm using dry shampoo to stop my itching. I probably won't finish anything else up until then either.

    I am ready to get back into using up my stash. I'm still trying to get my regimen down but now I have some products I really like and am ready to get rid of the rest or to use them up.

    2. Which session(s) are you participating in?:
    • 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.):

    Will update this later after I review my 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):
    I usually just put the word - add or delete after an entry and include the date.
    I also track the number of products I had when I started vs. current vs. the end count.


    5. By the end of the challenge, what is the total number of products you hope to have in your stash?:

    I don't wash very often so I won't use up things quickly. I hope to use up at least 5 and give away or trash 5.

    We finished a bottle of Design Essentials Almond and Avocado Shampoo and immediately replaced it. I love it but I might try something else the next time it runs out.

    Finished two HGs:
    • Shea Moisture hipo masque
    • Shea Moisture manuka honey masque
    I'm not repurchasing, even though they are HGs. I must use up some of these other masques. I plan to add honey, olive oil, and/or AVJ to boost masques that are so-so.

    I finished up my Mane Choice Egyptian Hair Mask, loved it when I had longer hair. It didn't wow me with my shorter hair so I probably won't repurchase it.
