How much conditioner do you go through a month?

I was reading the Sally's bottle of the knockoff Humectress. It made me giggle when it said "use one teaspoon" in hair. ONE TEASPOON?? Anyway, I am curious as to how much conditioner you dudes use a month? Please base this on say, a 16 oz bottle, which is the size of sally's knockoffs.

I think I may go through 2-3 16 ozers a month. But Im new and just started this routine. We shall see, Lord willing. :)


P.S. If you use like a 32 oz bottle, just cut that in half and see how much you use so it will all be to scale!! Like if you use one 32 oz bottle a month, you go through 2 - 16 oz bottles.

i use more than one conditioner on my hair at one time throughout the month, but i estimate its about 2 bottles/month.

My first jar of Jessicurl Too Shea lasted me six weeks.

1 a month but I am scrimping

Okay, this is wild, but I'm at the other side of the spectrum.

It takes me 5-6 months to use a 21oz bottle of conditioner. I do have short hair (shorter than my chin), so that's probably the main reason. I use about 3 quarters worth for each use.

I use the large size and I use several brands through out the month Deep Condish from Jessicurl is used every week.
My condish that I mix my potions with I use weekly
and then there is my condish that I use daily.
That is a lot of condish :D :) :shock:

I use about 1 regular sized bottle of conditioner for about a month and a half.

Depends on the condish.... I have been using Suave Citrus Smoothie, and while I like how it makes my hair feel, I used an entire bottle of it in just three days :oops: I only have just barely shoulder lenght hair! I think the post about cheaper condish being more watered down was right on the money!!

I bought the liter sized bottle of the Biotera condish at Sally's and was horrified to see that I went through it in about 4 weeks! Granted, my hair is really thick and it's past shoulder length, and I wash with it as well, but damn!

It takes me ages to go through a full bottle of conditioner. i'd say 4-5 months. I have fine wavy hair though, which isn't that dry, so I only need a dime sized amount of conditioner each time. More than that leaves my hair too flat.

I am only half way through a tube of Brilliant Brunette conditioner that I got in February. My hair is chin length, and I use about 1/2 teaspoon a day, 7 days a week.

I go through 1 bottle of Jessicurl Aloeba a month. Granted I only condition 1-2 times a week in winter. Probably will use a bit more as the weather warms.

Jessicurl 04-25-2004 01:36 PM

Hard to say for me - I have 3 bottles of the same condish in my shower, all with different scents. I like variety in my scent choices! :) If I stuck with one scent, I'd probably go through an 8oz bottle in about a month or so...maybe 3 weeks as my hair is growing pretty fast these days.

I think you are dead on about the watered down Suave. I really liked Suave Milk and Honey conditioner, but I used half a bottle in one "washing".

I am digging this Sally's Generic Nexxus. I use A LOT less of it. Soon I can see just how much I need per week, Lord willing. :)

As for you curly girls who use less than one bottle a month, I am IMPRESSED. I didn't even think to put "less than one bottle" as an option!! Wow. You go efficient curly girls! :)

It takes me months to get through a bottle of conditioner, my hair is past shoulder length and quite thick. Since the beginning of December I have got through 1 and a half bottles of Got2b instant gratification conditioner. Each bottle is 8.5fl oz. So it's takes me roughly 6 months to get through 17fl oz of conditioner.

rubyloxx 04-27-2004 02:34 AM

that would probably take me almost 2 months to use up a bottle of conditioner. I've been using one for about a month now and it's half full.

MzShvy 04-27-2004 09:01 AM

I use 2.5 bottles of conditioner to one bottle of shampoo! About four bottles a month!

Ditto. My hair is curly and of average thickness, but I still don't use much conditioner. I probably use it three times a week, and I don't use a lot. I find the whole conditioning routine a little too time consuming. When you start work at 6:30 am, you have to save all the time you can! :wink:
