How long does it take you to go thru a bottle of condish?
 
I went thru my AHC in about 1 1/2 months and my mom thought that was really fast and know says I have to buy my own condish if I'm gonna go thru it this fast :x So I was wondering how lond does it take you to use your condish, if it was around 12 oz.

internetchick 09-21-2006 04:31 PM

OMG she thinks that's fast? I wish I could get away with that. 3 to 4 weeks for me.

I went through a 32 oz OneC in about 5 weeks.

JuicyTube 09-21-2006 04:44 PM

up to a month at the most.. i think its even less than that.

I'm not CG, an 8 oz. bottle lasts me about 2 months.

Kurlee 09-21-2006 05:05 PM

At least 3-4 months. I guess I use much less than most.

OMG!! One month!?!?! I used up an 8 ounce tube of too shea in 5 DAYS! :(

I use up a 15oz bottle of suave in about 2 1/2 weeks. When I tried Activate, about 2 weeks. I must use a lot more conditioner than you guys!

It takes me 1-1/2 months to go thru Curls Asian Hair Tea Conditioner easily, which is my "staple" conditioner. And that stuff is 16 ozs.

Rain 09-21-2006 06:03 PM

If itís a good conditioner, it lasts me a month. If I go through it faster, I donít consider it to be good.

jeamaria 09-21-2006 06:13 PM

16 oz would last me a month, if I condition twice a week. Even when I didn't have a clue about adding conditioner till my hair got seaweedy, and I still used to finish my 8oz in a month. If I can avoid it, I would not use a conditioning conditioner to co-wash as well; that way I can stretch it out a little longer.

I did finish one Suave Naturals conditioner in less than a week, but I was swimming a lot and using it as a pre-swim conditioner, co-wash, regular condish, and leave in.

its ok! the more you cowash etc the easier it gets with using the right amounts for your hair

It takes me about a month to finish my condish , sometimes longer if i dont CG everyday. I usually do CG every other day anyways.

Sleepy Owl 09-21-2006 07:26 PM

I voted 3-4 months, even though I am guessing at how long it will last, but since I only use about a teaspoon a day, I am sure it will last a long time.

Maybe try CO washing with Suave Naturals, and save the AHC for conditioning only? (That is what I do.) I go through the suave faster, but I still have about 1/2 a bottle left, and I have been CG for a month now.

Leilani42 09-21-2006 08:53 PM

Since I use lots for Co washing, I use my cheapie Suave Aloe Vera. The bigger bottle lasts me at least a month. My nicer, creamier conditioner lasts much much longer, since I only use two tablespoons or so. But my hair is much shorter and less thirsty than lots of the lovelies out there...

Eilonwy 09-21-2006 09:25 PM

Wait, is this COwash or conditioner-conditioner? COwash lasts a couple of weeks. Regular conditioner lasts months.

Starmie 09-21-2006 10:15 PM

I get through an 8oz bottle in 2 -3 weeks. That's conditioning, I don't co-wash.

This is basically me too, although I rotate conditioner daily so lots of different bottles get used up slowly rather than use one, toss one. I fully wet, condition and detangle my hair at least 4 days a week (usually 5 or 6), so conditioner gets used more than anything else.

But like someone else said, better conditioner lasts longer. Since I don't condition wash, though, I buy and use much less of the cheap, thin stuff. For example, I only use Suave or VO5 to provide a break from richer conditioner or after coloring.

lazykerri 09-22-2006 08:21 AM

Hair length and thickness can affect how much you use as well. I would think those with long locks would use more than someone with a short pixie cut. Mine is kinda in between (about halfway down my back). Also, how often the person uses it (i.e. every day vs. once or twice a week).

I never really timed how long it takes me, I have had a tendency in the past to get huge bottles of shampoo and conditioner (cheap) that last what seems like forever (then suddenly it's an emergency when I run out!) Now that I'm using Activate Shampoo and Conditioner I wonder when it will run out? My guess is it will be a month or two.
