Today was wash day and I finished up 2 products since my last one, Naturelle Grow Sweet Honey Nectar Hair and Conditioning Balm and Naturelle Grow Mega Grow Oil. I like both products though I don't consider them staples. I'm more wowed my Naturelle Grow's deep conditioners but I would repurchase.

I’m taking Sunny Isle JBCO Butter out of inventory. I do not like it for my hair. It provided NO shine and the scent was WAY too strong (I got the lavender scented one). It is a total miss. I’m repurposing it for my eyebrows. I ordered Aveda Brilliant Humectant Pomade to replace it. I’m giving my sister the Creme Of Nature Anti Humidity Gloss and Shine Mist.

Used up UFD Heal and Renew Masque. Meh. Not a repurchase unless I find it on a Target end cap on clearance.

I'm aiming to buy nothing for Black Friday except Oyin if they have a sale. Going to purge before the end of the year.
Same here on all points. I have 1 Hair Dew liter left that I know won't last long, but I am good on basically everything else and need to purge a little.

We finished up a bottle of Design Essentials Almond and Avocado shampoo. Then I bought two shampoos from Aveda, Shampure and Cherry Almond Bark. Then Sally Beauty had a half off sale and I bought four Mielle Babassu and Mint D/Cs. Oops.

I finished up my Adwoa Beauty Deep conditioner, I won't repurchase. It's okay but it's not my favorite product of the line and I can find better deep conditioners for me at that price point. Added the edge control to my vacation travel kit, I rarely lay my edges. I did do some Black Friday shopping and got a whole haul from SheScentit. I'll add it when it arrives.

- Adwoa Beauty Shampoo
- Melanin Black Soap Shampoo

Conditioners:
- Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner

- TGIN RepairX Deep Conditioner
