Round 1- aveyou.com, planned repurchase of CHS Treatment Shampoo and Curl Keeper, trial of CJ Pattern Pusha, Curl Queen, and Gentle Lather Shampoo. This was my reward for dropping 20 pounds.
Round 2- CurlMart coupon code. Trial of SS Caitlin's Conditioner, Protein Treatment, CEJ, and Firm Hold Gel. Mop Top Conditioner and Light Hold Anti-Frizz Gel, Darcy's Botanicals cream gel, Curlisto Structura Lotion and Control II Gel. This was my reward for surviving black belt testing
Round 3- aveyou again. Had a coupon code and had seen great reviews for the gel on CurlMart, but aveyou also had shampoo and conditioner (and conditioner had the word "protein" right in the name) and I needed my $50 purchase to get the $1 shipping, so I ordered Batia & Aleeza shampoo, conditioner and gel.
I did the math and I still won't be anywhere near my stash count record (an obscene 125+ different products), but I still decided to clear out a bunch of stuff that doesn't thrill me. Luckily I have a friend who's also a curly and on a strict budget right now because she had to move her wedding from next Oct to this Oct so at least they'll get used. And I have a ton of experimenting to do.
