Utterly obsessed

So since starting CG I have become utterly obsessed with my hair and buying products. Just received my Devacare one conditioner on Thurs and was like an excited child. Had to buy the microfibre towel and turban, wide tooth comb, various gels and cowashing conditioners.
Thought I was all set ..then saw the thread today about the mouse/gel combo was like "I can use mouse on my hair... didn't know that ... why don't I own that mouse??". So I bought the HE SME mouse. (hides head in shame). I am starting to think I need therapy for this newly found hair obsession.
Welcome to the club!

CoN green, HE hello hydration, burt's bees super shiny condish, & KCCC.

Smiles are free, so give them away.

Celebrate we will, 'cause life is short but sweet, for certain.
Ummm...me guilty, too. GULP.

You all are going to think I am silly but I get satisfaction from 'shopping' online and putting products in the 'cart'. I then think about our budget and my hard-working hubby and feel guilty. Take products out of cart / delete them , lose the guilt and come back later and do it again...blush. Yes, I am a little OCD. You all are making me crazy! Just kidding.

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.

Ooh -- this is a little scary. I *just did that* (put product in cart, SheaMoisture leave-in, to be specific) and then took it out again. And then came here and saw this.

And you know it's going back in the cart one of these days.

2c-3a/m/ii (FIA), CG since June 1st, 2007!
Love Jessicurl and KCCC might be my HG.

I am trying SO HARD not to be a PJ!! I am a natural overspender. I don't usually spend what we can't afford, but I do buy way beyond any reasonable amount that I could actually use. I use all three B&A products, and I have the best hair I've ever had, but I still am dying to buy everything else I read about! WHY???!!! I've spent my whole adult life searching for my HG, and now that I found it, I STILL want to buy new stuff!!
I hear you Alice in Wonderland - I don't go NUTS, but when looked at in the perspective of what I *need*, I am WAY overboard.

I think it's sort of like a greed - I find something I like (finally) and that gives me improved results, and then I think, "well, if I found this, there *could* be something even better out there!" Horrible vicious cycle!

But you are not alone!

*feeling dumb* but what is B&A?

very fine hair-daily humidity battle
2B so far, wash daily w/gentle poo, clarify wkly
Current faves: EMBC, Mop C poo, LOOB, Recoil, CK, HE BE gel
Oh, I love window shopping, I mean cart shopping. If it's a really good cart, I print it out before deleting. In case I get a windfall of money and want to remember my wish list, LOL.
3b, fine, but LOTS of it...
