The No Waste Challenge

Like Tree183Likes

Ok, so I got my samples from Sevi today, and I'm suuuuuuper excited!!! She included another sample of the pumpkin seed conditioner I totally fell in love with!! She knows how to do business I'll have to update my list.

I also threw away my V05 and one of my Suave conditioners. They were cheap and I have no use for them. The Suave apple makes me really itchy.

Thanks Six! I can't wait to try their products, but I will since I've been lurking on this thread. I'm waiting until I use what I have first. I might as well officially join the challenge so I can hold myself accountable

Done with As I Am curling jelly....it was nice. I think it was a bit pricey, I forgot how much I paid.

I went to Walmart and returned two items I purchased recently and didn't like: Aloe Vera Gel and Hollywood Olive Oil. Just used one time each. The rest of my stuff is travel size bottles of products that were recommended in my hair analysis. Love travel size bottles, you use them three or four times to see if your hair likes the product and after that they're gone!

Aaah! My list is getting so much smaller, and there's so much more room in my bathroom now!

I used up my AIA Curl Clarity shampoo, been using it as a hand soap. I will never repurchase, I hated that stuff - although, it was alright as a hand soap. I also transferred my sample size of Komaza Aloe My Hair Leave In to the bigger bottle I purchased after I fell in love with it. I'm keeping the bottle for vacation underneath my sink. Less clutter = good!

Feels great to be using up these shampoos. Been using my Nature's Gate Henna shampoo as a body wash, and now as a hand soap since I ran out of the Curl Clarity. I just overall do not like the NG shampoo, even on my hands - it leaves a weird feeling behind.

I've definitely found my staples through this thread.

This is awesome guys I am so happy for all of you. The fact that some of you can take something from this leaves me a very happy person.

I have been confidently and happily resisting buying products this past week and a half- soon to be 2 weeks! whoooo

Got rid of some Deva products on the swap board, woohoo! 2 more gone.

I've been using Eden Bodyworks Cowash as a face wash lately, and I am completely in love with it!! Makes my face suuuuuper soft, and my skin is clear!

Ok, here to report again. I finally found a way to use up the last of the conditioners I didn't like. I ended up throwing away the rest of the advanced hair care (not much left and I hated it). Then I put the rest of my SM curl and shine cond. in my large Aussie Moist pump bottle so now I have a 'pump' for shaving cream (running low on my V05 strawberries).

So now I am FINALLY at the amount of products I want. So, to make this impactful, I copied my first list when I first started this challenge. And then I am going to write a new one with the products I have now so it can be compared and contrasted.

Needless to say, I am very happy. I have decreased the need to go shopping for hair products. I can actually walk down the hair aisle and just look! *gasp* I do feel that I have found some HG's for sure, and if not HG's at least something I would re-buy. I have now concluded that I really like V05 kiwi lime and I love YTC.

I have also learned that if I feel like I want to get a new hair product, I can always opt for travel sizes!

In 1 one more wash I will have finished my Eden body works deep condition & suave tropical coconut cowash. Throwing out my coconut & castor oil grease by Softee. Ladies AVOID these greases! I used them to seal my ends & I woke up with a migraine. Horrid.
Since I hate my Nature's Gate shampoo/conditioner, I used the shampoo as a bubble bath last night and got rid of a bunch! So.. I think I will probably be taking a lot of baths Seeing how much it foams in the bath, now I know why my hair hates it. I used the conditioner as a shave cream. I tend to overuse products I hate when I actually do find a use for them. Does anybody else do that? Like.. oopsie, I accidentally squeezed some down the drain when I meant to get it on my hands. lol
