That's it, I'm done.............

Hello gals, I'm back, and I've had a revelation. I have taken a vow, not to purchase anymore products for my hair, until all the products that I have now are used up! Since I started wearing my hair curly, I have been on an eternal product quest. It's never-ending, because even when I find a product that I adore, I'm still on the hunt for the BBD( Bigger, Better Deal), instead of just being satisfied with what I have. I cannot tell you how many products I have in both of the bathrooms in my house, and underneath almost every sink. They're everywhere, and it's gotten to a point of ridiculous, so it's time to simplify things a bit.

I have two products, that I am hopelessly in love with, and if I run out of those I will repurchase, everything else has to go. Products that I will allow myself to repurchase are; Kinky-Curly Curling Custard and Deva No-Poo.

I seriously have nine conditioners laying around, somewhere between four and six cowashing conditioners, two low-poo's, and so many styling products that I couldn't begin to guess a number for you. Most of the conditioners I actually use regularly, why I have so many I don't know. My family uses most of the cowash conditioners, and I use them to shave my legs. I low-poo once a week or so. I have two or three deep condtioners, that I also use weekly. I am turning into a crazy bag lady, except I'm collecting hair products.

The worst part of my collection is that I have seriously given away three boxes full of hair products to my Mom, and other curly family members.

Ladies, someone please tell me I'm not the only product hoarder around here? Even the stuff I don't use, I can't seem to throw away. SOS.........

Hi, just discovered your blog tonight and I'm really enjoying your hair product reviews, partly because yes, I am this bad too. In fact I'm disappointed you didn't say you had more products! I am not really a true PJ though, as in going on buying after I've found things that work really well for me. I haven't found anything that works that well yet, but if I do it remains to be seen if I'll stop trying new stuff! When you're using stuff up though, how bad does it have to be before you decide it has to be swapped or given away. Or a fair bit 'accidently' goes down the drain when you over pour a little ;-)

Hi! Thanks for reading! I've come a long way since I wrote this post, almost 3 years ago. I am still a total PJ. I still have a lot of products. However, I don't buy new products everytime I go to the store now. All the products I have are ones that I like and I use. I won't repurchase most of them, but they're good enough. If you have products that just don't cut it, or don't do anything for you use them up, and don't replace them. Use what works. :)
