Moptop deep conditioner. I just can't stand the peppermint in this anymore. Irritates my scalp. I wish they would change the scent.
Ah...to be a well pampered pootiecat. I can sleep on my owner's lap. Roll over on my back when I want my stomach rubbed. Purr with delight. Suddenly jump off and walk away for no reason. Not respond when I am called. Throw my leg up and lick with intense abandon. Sleep 85% of the time. Hang my head off the couch and view the world upside down.

I moved all my butters in the bathroom so I can moisturize at night and discovered three had gone rancid and moldy to different degrees.

Trashed:

Pura Body Naturals Cupuacu Butter - It wasn't that long ago I bought this so I'm kinda peeved. Moldy and bubbly.

Zipporah Delight My Hair Butter - Honestly this was never stable for me. It has melted and reformed several times. When I say melted, I mean it has gone all the way to liquid then turned solid again. Initially, I thought maybe it was the cocoa butter but honestly I think it was just a bad batch since I never heard anyone else complain about this. Last night I opened it and it was liquid with mold on top.

Boutique de Fleurtzy Curls Nuture Cream - I kind of expected this to mold. I don't remember a preservative listed. Its only a dollop visible but who knows what lurks.

In all honesty, I will not put the blame solely on the vendors because NJ weather is tricky. The temperature has been anywhere from 60s to 100s in the past two weeks. I'm going to check everything out tonight and reorganize to make sure there's no more evils in my stash.

Mixed my Ella Jelly from LP with KCCC and shea butter to make a soft holding concoction for my twists. Stored the rest of my gels in the fridge.

Finished a bottle of Komaza Care Califia Leave in.

Why is this jar of Cantu Shea butter telling me to use it? I guess I will use that for a while, it would take me all of summer to use that large jar though.
Threw away:
~Sample Natural Bliss Mango butter
This mango butter smells like a$$. This morning when I was getting ready for work I decided to sift through my product drawer and I found some samples I bought from natural bliss. I found the mango butter, scooped some out with my finger tip, emulsified it in my hands, started applying it on my arms and suddenly I was overwhelmed by FUNK! I was so effin mad. I had to wash my arm off. I don't remember it smelling like this when I first got it. If this wasn't a sample I would be more mad. I still wasted my money though and that sucks. Oh well

Gave away to my bff:

Curl Junkie Beauticurls Leave In. After that stuff dried in my hair its like it never existed. She said she liked it though so I was more then happy to give that up.
Smacked with a head full of Dreamy tight Coils that refuse to have it any other way...

Tigi Moisture Maniac. Finally. I had to use half the bottle though because I only ever need a little. I want this stash gone by August.

MHC Olive you - wont repurchase

Throw Aways:

Safi Avocado Shea butter. That and the curl clouds made my hair so hard that I had no choice. Never Again.

Several Mozeke samples.... I was afraid after watching some stuff on youtube...

La Bella +10 hold gel - I can't work with this product. Worse than the hardest holding eco styler. Non-drying my behind...

I actually want to throw away all of the ish that doesn't work. I'm tired of looking at it.
