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


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

    Total: 9

    I have excluded heat protectant's and serums (for now). Added gels after all.

    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 strikeout products I've used.
    New products will be colored gold.
    Products that I'm not completely sure I'll be able to use (due to ingredients, harshness or fragrance) will be in red.
    Products I currently use will be in green.

    Green products may be repurchased when used up, but only if another product is used up in the interim. Red products will not be repurchased. Products in regular font can go either way.


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

    20? :lachen:

    Starting Total: 125

    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 did a mudwash and used up 1 of my jars of clay. I'm down to 1 jar of calcium bentonite and I think 1 jar of sodium bentonite which I will just make staples.

    Used up Mielle Organics Rosemary Mint mask. Once I use up the rest of those masks, I think I'm going to repurchase it. I liked it a lot.

    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.

    Did some light cleaning and finally tossed the Lush products. Wayy too much fragrance, plus I think some of them were expired. xD

    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.
