    I recently finished an Alterna Caviar shampoo and conditioner sample set, a full sized Herbal Essences shampoo and some sweet almond oil.

    Haven't purchased anything. I may get some more oil soon though.

    Thank you!!!

    I’m a frequent washer, so most of those products went by rather quickly. Otherwise, I think they’d still be taking up room in my bathroom.

    Not all of the products were in large containers either. Those 4oz bottles went by within the week since they’re so tiny.

    For the month of July, I finished 12 products total. 7 full sizes and 5 samples. I also threw out an oil sheen I knew I was never going to use.

    I didn't buy or receive anything to add to the stash.

    - Obia Coconut and Shea Shampoo Bar
    - OGX Shea Sof & Smooth Shampoo

    Conditioners:
    - Redken All Soft Conditioner (using as deep conditioner)
    - Annabelle's perfect Blends Passionfruit Conditioner
    - OGX Coconut Curls Conditioner

    Leave In Conditioners:

    I haven't been very consistent with this challenge. However, I am ready to eliminate as many things as possible. I have really been able to narrow down what works this year. And I want to really use those things consistently to see how well they work. Two or three weeks ago I separated my elimination pile from my other items so I can clearly see what is left.

    Since then I have thrown out the S-Curl because it was doing absolutely nothing for my hair. I have relegated the Camille Rose Ginger Rinse to a hand cleanser. I am going to use the whipped shea butter my friend gave me as a body butter. I have 1 or 2 more uses of the Mane Choice Type 4 leave-in. I like her other spray moisturizer better. But I may try Sta Sof Fro again and try diluting it.

    I have a box of things on the floor that I think I will take to one of the local centers. I will through through it today to see what I can give away.

    I will wash this weekend and see what else I can use up and give away.

    I am giving the rest of my Mielle Organics Honey Pomegranate products to my sister. They flke so bad on my hair that I just can't. I'm also returning the Curls Blurberry Whipped Cream. This just didn't do anything to my hair.

    I have to make a Sally's run after work so I'll be picking up some items. But also using them immediately because I'll be dying my hair tonight.
