Starting early. I used up Mielle Organics Babassu oil & Mint DC. It's a staple and I'll repurchase but only after using up another DC.

I mixed my TGIN Daily Moisturizer with TGIN Leave-In. I only have a small amount left. I have mixed feelings about using it up. When I use it up I will repurchase both products and make them staples unless I find a better product for moisturizing.

They really are. I thought I was going to switch over to the Mane Choice line but after using them side by side, I'm back to TGIN as my primary line. I still need to fill in some gaps with it though. But I'm still using their original line so this year I will try some of their newer products.

I updated my placeholder with my starting stash numbers. I have a Sephora order coming today but I don't think any hair items are in it so the list is basically up to date.

Used up almost all of my Mielle Babassu Mint DC... sometimes I hate it sometimes I don't, but I'm glad it's about done. I'll have to find something to mix the rest with later. Hmmph.

Used up soultanicals afrotastic curl elastic. I liked the deep conditioner but I'm not leaning towards it being a holy grain. I may not repurchase.

Used up Mielle Otganics Brazilian Curly Cocktail.

I really didn't like this stuff, too thick and has no slip. I actually tossed the little that was left over.

Added - 1lb of 3 Cayg shea nicolita butter and 1lb mango butter.
