Too many hair products. How many do you have?

Im sitting here wondering how Im ever going to finish all the hair products I have, and the ones that Im planning to order. I feel that I have too many moisturizing products - creams, hairmilks leave-ins etc. Im still waiting for more to come.. and still looking It's hard to resist when most of the organic/natural products looks so great and delicious.


Does anyone feel the same way? And how many products do you have? Just what you need, or more?

Oh man...I have tones and tones of products. When I was first starting on my curly hair styling journey I was a buying machine! I tried out so many products and combinations - all in a desperate attempt to find that special mix that would work with my hair. Now that I'm more savvy I have a few products that work with my specific hair type, and that's it. I should probably throw out all the junk I won't use, but it's a mountain of product and I feel bad for spending all that money!

I have so many, I can't even list them on here off the top of my head! There are loads that I don't even use, it's terrible! Lol.

BRHG

I like hard hold gels.

Im waiting for Labella lots of curls gel too, I hope it works for my hair.

Does any of you have Anita Grants Whipped Butter?
3b textured curly from DK.

I currently have:

Lo Poos:
Burt's Bees Super Shiny (1/2 bottle)
Dr. Organics Aloe Vera (1/3 bottle)
(I switch these up when I do lo poo)
(I also have a bottle and a half of Regis Curl Lock shampoo, which is not a lo poo, but it's always good to keep a sulfate poo around)

Conditioners:
Original Source Almond and Coconut (new bottle, just used this morning)
Inecto Pure Coconut Oil (mostly full... trying to decide where it belongs in the routine)
Faith In Nature Aloe Vera (3/4 full... don't like it much)
Naked Rescue Intensive Care (2/3 full... don't much like the smell, though the results are okay)
Dr. Organics Aloe Vera (1 full and untouched, 1 2/3 full)
GVP conditioning balm (nearly full, only used a handful of times)
Mill Creek Organics Aloe Vera (nearly full... not sure if I like it or not)

Treatments:
Louise Galvin Natural Locks Deep Treatment (2/3 full)
MOP Extreme Protein (about 3/4 full)
Lustrasilk Shea Butter (not yet used!)

Styling/etc:
AVG (2 bottles - one nearly empty, one brand new)
Pink Boots (sadly, I have 4 pots of this. The original one is about 3/4 of the way full... the others are in case they decide to stop carrying them. Plus I'm planning on posting one to my mom.)
Purple Boots (1 pot, almost full)
KCCC (brand new, only used a teeny bit thus far)
KTKC (ditto)
Body Shop Curl Boost (1 bottle, about 3/4 full)
Regis Curl Balm (nearly empty)

I think that's it. I do use most of this stuff pretty regularly unless otherwise noted. :-)

It is. I haven't used it yet (as it says in the list), but when I do I'll probably leave it on for 10-15 minutes and then rinse out as I do currently with the Louise Galvin stuff. I'm saving it for winter when my hair'll dry out from the wind and cold - for the moment, the other deep treatment is enough.

Without actually counting, just guessing...

I have (had) so many daily conditioners that I recently returned 6, unopened but sniffed, to stores since the receipts were within the allowable return period. That left 6 more, unopened but sniffed, on the shelf, that I'll keep/can't return due to shredded/lost/out of return period receipts. And there's 6 or more being rotated in the shower area.

As for the other new ones I don't want but can't return to stores due to shredded/lost/out of return period receipts, I'm selling them on the Swap board. One of those is a conditioner/shampoo set that I was such a junkie I bought a second one of before barely starting on the first!

The ones that I don't want/can't return & can't seem to sell, used or new, I gave/give away to neighbors & friends. I used to send them to friends & family in the mail, but that got too expensive.

There's possibly a total of 6 deep conditioners, 3 unopened but sniffed on the shelf & 3 in the shower.

There might be a total of 4 once-weekly sulfate-free shampoos, 2 unopened but sniffed on the shelf & 2 being rotated in the shower. One of those is a dual duty body wash/shampoo.

There's only one twice-monthly sulfate-free clarifying shampoo. It's in the shower.

As for leave-in conditioners, there's probably a total of 6 being rotated in a basket on the back of the toilet.

And stylers, well, oh boy, uh, hm, in a Naturally Curly reusable shopping bag under the sink there might be a total of 18 things that range from gels to creams to in between.

Hmmm...

Knot Today - detangler and leave-in.
Aubrey Organics Honeyscukle Rose and White Camellia - rinse outs.
Mango Oil - sealant
KCCC - styler
Kinky Curly Pomade - SOTC and touch ups

Kinky Curly Come Clean - low poo type of deal
Curl Junkie Curl Rehab - DT
JoiGel firm - summer styler
GVP reconstructor - protein tx
Dr Bronner's conditioning rinse - acidifier
Lustrasilk Shea Mango - winter leave in

It looks like a lot. The top items are regular rotation items. The bottom ones are seasonal or for situational use. Half of my stuff seems to be for seasonal use or situational use.

Seriously, even after giving away 2 shopping bags full of silicone and sulfate laden products, I still have a lot. But it's just the right amount for me.
