I used my rejects as shave creams too. I recently married and now have a very curly stepdaughter so now I can offer them to her first.

Shaving cream or my curly dad will use them, haha. My mom might too, but she usually just buys her own hair stuff.

I use them for...shaving cream, let the rest of my family use it, or condition my makeup brushes with it if it doesn't contain any oils.

[quote=CurlsALOT;1306052]I donate them to the local women's shetler - you have no idea how welcomed it is - especially if itís a high end product that they could never afford at this time of their life.

That's a really great idea! I may have to check into doing that.

Oooh I never even considered giving them to the homeless shelter or a womans shelter. I used to just give them to my mom but she has commented that she has more than enough conditioner now LOL

I usually use them as shaving cream or pass them along to my curly sister.
I read in a magazine a while back that you can also use conditioners as an in shower body moisturizer by slathering it all over your body and then just letting the water rinse it off your body without srubbing. I've tried it a few times especially during the winter when my skin tends to get very dry and it works pretty well.

I see I'm not the only one who uses it for shaving my legs! Sometimes I use conditioner to wash my body, too.

Shaving cream for me too. In fact, I started liking conditioner so much better than shaving cream on a regular basis that I buy Suave or another inexpensive conditioner to use just for shaving when i don't have any unloved ones to use for that purpose.

I use them for shaving as well most of the time. Sometimes I'll put it at the back of the pile to try again later on. Sometimes I pass them on the SO to try as well.

My rejects are used as shaving cream and if it doesn't smell too flowery I'll use it on my son's stick straight baby fine hair.

I give all of mine to my patients that are in the hospital. The hospital here supplies shampoo, but no conditioner. Many of the patients are living below the poverty level so it's a treat for them (and me too!)
