  • All - I'm doing a no- buy for the entire year, so let's see how far I can get with replacing products.

3. List the products you plan to use or lose and place them in categories (ex. Shampoos, DCs, Leave-Ins, etc.):

I don't have the energy to list everything now but I will update with my empties each month (maybe with a photo) as I use up products. I did sort my products and now like categories are stored together so I can tell what I have.Meaning all of my hair products are together, all of skin care together, makeup etc.....

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):
Oops, see above...

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

I hope to have two each; shampoo, regular conditioner, deep conditioner, oils and shea butter.

I threw out the Elasta QP Soy Oyl but I purchased a few more products. I bought the Elucence Clarifying Shampoo and the Moisturizing Shampoo to replace the Elasta QP. I bought Curl Junkie Smoothing Conditioner. Also picked up Uncle Funky's Daughter Gel and The Doux styling foam.

I also bought a new hair dryer.

I threw out a few things. I had a small bottle of Aphoghee 2 step. Also a small bottle of Aphoghee amino acid treatment. I threw out a Surya Brasil Henna Color and an ION pretreatment spray. I kept saying I was going to use it but never remembered when it was time to color.

I used my Mane Choice Orchid gel tonight. It's getting low and I love it so I tucked it away for later. I pulled out the small jar of Shea Moisture gel. I will use that up first.

I'm back to rinsing and conditioning so using the Kirkland conditioner. It's a pretty big bottle so it will last me a couple of months.

I bought a new cabinet for my bathroom and my SO put it up today. I'm able to get a lot of my stash in the cabinet which will make it easier to use up.

I cleansed, conditioned and styled tonight.

I used up the Pureology Color Fanatic and the Giovanni Balanced Conditioner since they were both sample size.

I'm going to relegate the Surya Brasil shampoo and conditioner to my travel stash and take them with me when I'm on vacation.

I tried the Shea Moisture Curling Gel Souffle twice. It's a strange gel on my hair. I tossed it. I'm not going to try to figure it out. It was a really small jar.

I'm styling my hair twice a week and using the CD Hair Milk foam after gel. I should be finished with this by mid February if not earlier.

I have some travel size bottles of shampoo, conditioner, leave-in and gel which I will put in rotation.

By the end of this month I will update my product list.

I'm a little late but I'd like to join please ~~ I'm usually a product minimalist but I've fallen in love with deep conditioning again and went a little overboard during my trip back home to England because I was scared that I wouldn't be able to get my hands on anything for a while:cry3:

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

All please


3. List the products you plan to use or lose and place them in categories (ex. Shampoos, DCs, Leave-Ins, etc.):

Too many deep conditioners to mention so I'll just attach a picture. As for the other products I have, I'd also like to use up the following:

*Aunt Jackie's Power Wash Clarifying Shampoo
*22nd Century natural woman shampoo bar (staple)
*Maui Moisture hair Milk
*Kinky Curly Knot today
*Beautiful Textures Leave-in conditioner


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 will post each time I use up a product from my statsh and I will not purchase any deep conditioners.

Shampoos and leave-ins may be the exception as I use them up very quickly and I'm searching for staples

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

I would like 10 products altogether ideally.

I'm looking to find a leave-in Staple, deep conditioner staples (moisture and protein) and shampoo Staple

I may have to get rid of my daughter's what the hemp. I may be allergic. I put it in her hair yesterday and it made my eyes water and itch. I had the same reaction to the honey hemp conditioner.

It's a shame because it made her hair soft.

Getting rid of the Elasta QP DPR-11 Deep Penetrating Remoisturising Conditioner and Kids Organic Hair Nutrition Protein Enriched Conditioner today.

Products with mineral oil don't work well with my hair so I'm giving them away to my cousin.

Used up Eden bodyworks Citrus conditioner. I liked it. I bought it at a black owned hair store on the other side of town. It cost as much as the gas it takes me to drive there and back soooo... No idea if I'll ever repurchase it lol.

ETA: I went to see if it's still on her site. It is. And it's $5. Dang it.

I used up a travel size bottle of TGIN conditioner and the rest of my TGIN leave-in :sad:

It was cleanse day so I used TGIN shampoo, TGIN leave-in and Carol's Daughter foam. I will probably have the shampoo for a while. The leave-in is gone. The foam should be gone by the end of the month.

I will replace the leave-in. I might even repurchase the shampoo but I'm on the fence.

Next up is the travel size bottle of the Kinky Curly Knot Today
