Finished up the As I Am Original Leave-In Conditioner. Used to detangle my hair after a horrid twist out.

I need to stop being lazy and use my revair every wash day because these 1.5hr detangle sessions are not for me anymore.

Finished Ever Ego Herb Ego Scalp drops. I do not plan on repurchasing scalp drops anymore. I don't like bothering to put them on.

Q1 Update

Used Up

Shampoos: 3
Quick/cowash conditioner: 7
Deep Conditioner: 4
Protein & bonding treatment: 1
Leave-in: 3
Oil: 2
Styling: 1
Color Care: 0

Total: 21

So see, what had happened was...

I did know I was doing this project but I kept forgetting to come back to update.

All the stuff that has a strike through was used up.

The biggest reason why I didn't use up as much as I wanted was because halfway through the quarter, I put in a protective style that made some of the steps redundant. No need to use a pre-poo product when you are in cornrows for 6 weeks.

Also, all the birthday hauling I did in January left me with a lot of samples and minis and I decided to prioritize using those up. Again, forgot to come back here and add them but I've do better moving forward.

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).

Strike through to notate products that have been used up. I usually give my update at the end of each month.
New products that came in will be updated on my Google Sheets doc. If I plan to use them up, I'll add them here in green.
Decluttered items will be noted with a red fill color.

I only ended up decluttering 1 item during the first quarter.

5. By the end of the challenge, what is the total number of products you hope to have in your stash.
January is my birthday month and I do tend to get hair care products as gifts. So my collection will go up during this month but if I can use up any 30 products by the end of this quarter, I'll be happy.

My stash did go up by 4 items. But again, there a lot of products I could use thanks to my choice of protective style so that's that on that. My stash is still big but I also know how to manage it.
