Products I've Used Up.

*Sighs deeply*  Once again, my hair product inventory appears to have gotten a little out of hand.  I've got all kinds of products in there, some I loved, some indifferent to, and others I've hated.  So now I ask myself "is it possible for me to identify the products I tend to buy over and over again so I can finally be at peace with letting all the others go?"

The answer is yes! All I had to do was identify the products I've used up and would be repurchased again when I ran out. So far, this process has been pretty painless.  I'd like to share a few of the ones identified.


Shampoo|
If I were honest with myself, I would throw out pretty much all my old bottles of shampoo with the exception of these three:
  • A neutralizing shampoo (I like the one from Motions).
  • Neutrogena's Anti-Residue Clarifying shampoo (repurchased 3X). 
  • Wen Conditioning cleanser (repurchased 2X). 
Conditioner|
I love mixing conditioners together so a bulk of my hair product possessions fall under the conditioner category.  Although I'm quick to try out new conditioning products, consistently, I repurchase mainly a few brands:

  • Kerastase Nutrithermique (repurchased 3X).
  • Keracare Humecto (repurchased countless times. Still need to get my hands on the 5 lb size).
  • Silicon Mix Protein to Perla (numerous repurchases).
  • Aveda Damage remedy (will repurchase in the future).
  • Redken Extreme Strength builder (newly added to my regimen will repurchase).
  • Suave coconut conditioner.
Strengthener/Hair Repair|
Daily Maintenance|
  • Gleau Argan Oil blend (repurchased numerous times)
Heat Protection|
When I'm gazing into my product stash this weekend, I will ask myself, "if someone took this product without me knowing, would I notice? Would I repurchase if I couldn't find it?"  If the (honest) answer is yes, then I know what I gotta do.

  1. This is a great way to assess if I really like a product and if not to get rid of it. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is a good method of taking inventory. What do you use as your moisturizer?

  3. Great idea! I need to do this too to try to get a handle on my stash!

  4. You are so right, mainly for us product junkies!
    I've repurchased
    Silicon Mix (the original one)
    Kerastase Bain Oleo Relax
    Alfaparf Semi di lino blue vials (in fact I'm just purchasing some more from ebay)

    I've decided this year to stop buying new products, to use up my stash or give it away to friends and purchase more Alfaparf products which are the ones that I truly love. I even downloaded a pdf I found online with Alfaparf technical sheet to address different issues and I'm following that :)
