Default Are you a compulsive product junkie?

Hi, I'm new to this website.
So I just wanna get to know some people here. Umm, I'm sort of a product junkie. LOL What are your favorite hair products and why?

I'm a product junkie as well! With the weather changing, it's hard to tell what I like anymore - bleh!

Right now I'm liking SM C&H shampoo with the matching curl milk. I also like Komaza Coconut Hair Milk. I like these for winter because they are thicker and heavier. I was getting some serious dry frizz with the products I used for summer. I also needed a bit gentler low poo.

In the summer I was loving YTCucs low poo, YTB conditioner, NG Henna conditioner, Komaza Aloe My Hair Leave In, and HE Set Me Up gel (the CG friendly formula). They were light and gave me great volume!

For a clarifier I like Neutrogena Anti-Residue shampoo. Takes absolutely everything off.

I was reeeeeaaallllyyyy loving the CG Repair Me and the CG Argan and Olive Oil conditioner, but they were making me kinda itchy I didn't like the questionable ingredient in it either.

Oh yes - def a PJ.

I took a step back during the summer but I've spent over $150 in the last two months on haircare products. Considering we're one income family right now... I got issues

I would be a product junkie if I could afford to be. Darn rent, groceries and other bills . I heard Curl Junkie has a good Black Friday sale, so I am planing to try some new stuff then.

I feel like one, but I'm just getting started here. Week one. I think I need to be done for awhile. I need to test out what I have and tweek things a bit.

This week I have purchased the following:

1. Tresemme Naturals Shampoo & Conditioner (only to realize the Shampoo was not CG. I should return that)

2. Tea Tree Oil

3. Flax Seeds

4. Organix Tea Tree Shampoo

5. Loreal EverCurl Cleansing Conditioner

6. Aloe Vera Juice

7. Gelatin

8. EVOO

I feel like I'm forgeting something...
