Default Do you refrigerate your products?

Are there certain hair products you find it's best to refrigerate so that they don't go bad, or does this ruin them?

I just recently started refrigerating my KCCC, KCKT, and Giovanni products. I don't see any reason why it would ruin them. As far as I know, the natural products don't have any ingredients with bactericidal/fungicidal properties, so the refrigeration would help slow down the growth of the icky stuff.

I have decided to refrigerate my KCCC since it is taking me a long time to get through the 16 oz. tub. Once I noticed the scent diminishing, I realized I probably should have been refrigerating it all along. (I have had it since late March -- and I put it in the fridge about mid-June.)

I had read previously about KCCC starting to smell "sour" after a while. It is a natural product and the preservatives in natural products tend to be less effective. I think a lot of curlies go through their KCCC tubs faster than I do, so it is not a concern for everyone.

I've refrigerated some butters/creams before, but it was not to prevent microbal growth. It gets really hot in Texas, so I was just trying to keep them from melting.

No, I don't I just make sure I keep the product sealed really tightly - my bathroom is very cool anyway.

There's probably no reason to chill your Pink Boots, unless you like something to wake you up in the morning! It's full of preservatives and so on...should be good to go. Provided you aren't dripping water into any of your products (like little puddles, not the dampness on your hand after a shower).
