Default Spinoff: How much conditioner do you go through?

If some of us are wetting and conditioning our hair everyday - how much conditioner do you go through? Does it get rather expensive to keep buying conditioner (depending on what kind you use)?

I do use a lot and I am finding my hair likes the more expensive ones (of course). I went through a bottle of OneC in about a week and half.

I am pretty judicious in my use of conditioner (because I like the good stuff, too). It will take me a couple of months at least to go through a bottle of One C if that's all I'm using. But I don't condition every day. I condition every two or three days. And I can spread it out further by rotating lesser brands into the mix once in a while.

I use quite a bit, so I usually buy liters. One of my favorites doesn't come in a liter, and I can go through a bottle in 2 weeks!

I also buy by the liter and it lasts about a month, but my hair is still pretty short compare to most curlies

With my fine/thin hair I must be a conditioner slut.

I like the expensive ones, but they last: John Masters Citrus Neroli I got early July and I'm about halfway through (I use it quite frequently). Robert Craig I got in June and it's almost full.

I'm through within 2-3 weeks. The one I normally cowash with which is a cheap dollar conditioner.. I'm fine with the price and all.

I use a lot more conditioner to CO wash, so I keep that one cheap and I don't CO wash every day. I would say one bottle of suave lasts me almost a month, washing twice a week.

My conditioners are more expensive and a little goes a long way for me. I would say that, at this rate, my liter Regis Olive Oil Conditioner will last about two months. My Elucence MBC will probably last longer since I've just been using a dab as a leave-in.

with the cheap conditioners depends on if my son gets to the bathroom without me noticing, he's going through a cleaning phase and thinks conditioner is perfect for cleaning the bathroom, but luckily only with the cheap VO5 stuff so far, knock on wood.

We go through about a bottle of VO5 a week sometimes less, but we got 4 curlies in the house too, so . . . .

My more expensive stuff are luxury for me, I can't afford them all the time, so I make them last as long as I possibly can. my last bottle of Devacare lasted maybe 3 months. Making them stretch so long is the only way to justify the expense to myself.

I go through a bunch - I cowash with VO5 or Suave and I use the more expensive ones more sparingly. Right now I am loving B2B Jasmine and Trader Joe Nourish!!

I swap away the ones that don't work or use them on my kids. they have a ton of hair so products tend to not sit around for long!!

Huh? How the heck do you clean the bathroom with conditioner? Doesn't it make the tub all slippery?
