Hi Ladies! Forgot to log on and check in my results. I have minor flare ups for being tempted to buy next products since Im growing my hair back out now but I've been good.

I've finished up 6 products since my last update: OGX Shea Soft & Smooth Shampoo, OGX Coconut Curls Conditioner, Aphogee keratin 2 Minute Reconstructor, S Curl Texturized Spray, Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Earthbloom Organics Pomegranate Gel.

I' ve added The Doux One Love Co-wash (I hate the bubblegum scent but actually love the product. I like it just as much as As I am's cowash but appreciate that it's black-owned), Camille Rose Naturals Lavender Whipped Creme Leave In ( Wasn't expecting to like it, got it while traveling and I ran out of products but it's BAE). Also got Uncle Funky's Daughter Curly Magic.

If I make it through today I went all of April without buying anything. I forgot I bought the stuff at the very end of March smh lol. I've been in faux locs so only used up the Soultanicals. They are coming out this weekend though.

Finshed off most of my shampoo stash: Redken all soft and Avene smoothing shampoo
Conditioners/DC: Redken all soft, Macadamia professionals DC for dry hair, Avene smoothing conditioner
I have few unfinished DCs left as back up in case my Staples run out.
I was so tempted to get some silk elements products from Sally's today
(they have a buy 1 get 1 deal :cry3:) then I restrained my self lol it's a slippery slope for PJ tendencies.

I've been conditioner rinsing and haven't been using much else for the past few months. However, this weekend was my quarterly treatment so I used a few different products. Still didn't use up much. I finished the TGIN Daily Moisturizing Cream. I don't think I will replace this just yet. It works great when I wear my hair straight but that is super rare. I'm still working on the MC leave-in spray. I will try to use that up this week.

I'm at the end of my TGIN DC and Leave-In so I'm going to replace those this week.

Don't think I will be using up anything else for a few months. But I'm moving soon. Maybe I will throw some things out.

I’ve been busy (for me):
  • finished up a bottle of DE Almond and Avocado shampoo, I have four more
  • returned that mess Devacurl Melt Into Moisture back to Ulta
  • finished up Tropic Isle Black Castor Oil Protein conditioner, not replacing, while I liked it we hated our hair smelling like pickles
  • finished up Karen’s Body Beautiful Super Duper Hydrating Hair Cream, I may repurchase if the Qhemet Aethiopika (which arrives tomorrow) doesn’t work out
  • bought and RETURNED Alikay Naturals Shea Yogurt, I got it to replace the KBB SDHHC it it sucked
  • finished up the Safflower infused with olive oil, not replacing, I mixed some JBCO with some avocado oil from my kitchen to replace it
  • finished the Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Oil, using the Aveda Brilliant Emollient Finishing Gloss now

So I found a 30%off coupon for Sally in my purse yesterday that expired yesterday so figured I HAD to use it. My TGIN Honey conditioner was getting low and Mielle Mongongo has been looking htf, so I bought one of each.

So...attached to that 30% off Sally coupon was a 25% off coupon that started the next day. I also discovered I had a $5 reward I had forgotten to use so I bought another Mielle Mongongo conditioner. I got it for $6.18!
