CG & New Psych Disorders?
So... I had an epiphany yesterday. Going CG is doing great things for my hair, but is messing with my head. I have developed the following disorders:
1. Fear of product abandonment - constant fear that current products will be discontinued... Which causes...
2. Product hoarding - i'm nervous if I have less than 2 backup bottles... Which leads to...
3. Compulsive product spending & Inability to stick to budget. I have yet to convince hubby that haircare products do not fall under unnecessary expenses, but belong in the "must have to survive" category. I will keep trying.

Am I alone here? Support group, anyone? ;-)

I believe the local Chapter of Curly's Anonymous has formed under the 'Hand me the Prozac' thread. Feel free to forward your dues to Myrna. :toothy10:

I will be joining Product junkie anonymous because of the following:
A walgreens run @ 1 am because I needed to dc my hair today and didnt have a "suitable condish" :banghead:
then almost had a panic attack because they were moving the hair product aisle and it was mostly empty.
I also found out that the Walgreens Conditioning balm is discontinued:banghead:
I did however, get a burts bees GUD condish for $3.79. lol I have issues

On the budget issue, hubby has now informed me that I have to conjoin my hair product spending and my fun money allowance :/... Which sucks because I was sneaking the hair products into the target/cvs toiletries run smh

How about OCCD (obsessive compulsive curl disorder): not being able to take your eyes off your hair and obsessing over the spirals at inappropriate times.

Guess it's time to resurrect this thread

Another one that might also help is

As an acknowledged product slut, I will tell you that it's not necessary to hoard products. There is always another love out there! Half the fun is trying to find it.

Hahaha :D yeah same here... already have a lot of oils (and conditioners, and styling products, etc) and I'm still ordering a new one (avocado is next!)

I'm not much of a PJ but my psych symptoms present when I'm the stylist's chair with paranoia and phobia of unknown products. Do these count? I am terrified of hair salons :lol:

I like this thread. So many products, so little frizz (we wish).

Betcha can't use just one (to misquote an old ad for potato chips I think).

I feel less alone, now!! Thanks :-)

Definitely what I have. I was doing that as I read this.

I certainly have hoarding issues because I am so fearful they will discontinue my favorite things. In order to tame the anxiety I MUST have at least 10 bottles of Suave and VO5 conditioner and at least 4 bottles of LA Looks Sport Gel. And I check in every store I happen to be in just to make sure they aren't on sale.

I also have nightmares that I will be chosen to be on What Not To Wear and they will try to cut, dye, and straighten my hair.

WNTW nightmares. That's a good one! Hahaha!
