2021 Use Up Your Stash

KCCC - couldn't pass up the WF sale

Melanin Haircare Leave In - I almost got to the end but I really don't like it
The Doux Cowash - Got through half of it. I prefer Oyin Ginger Mint and I barely cowash as it is
Chebe prepoo is about one use away from finishing after today so I just bought the Neges Banda Ayurvedic Prepoo again. Their prepoos and hair rinse are a match made in heaven.
I finished several sample sizes of shampoos and conditioners this past weekend.

Others may go soon as I need to use them to wash my wigs.

Finished up the Negesbanda Chebe Prepoo and the Miche Peaches and Cream Deep Conditioner. Would repurchase the prepoo but def not repurchasing the conditioner. It's just ok on the moisture and it doesn't have enough slip for my taste. Might have to use up my other one as a prepoo but we shall see.
Finished up the Camille Rose Nangai and Tsuabaki Protein Treatment. I liked it but I wouldn't repurchase because for my second use, I had to make sure I had enough left for all my sections. It is very good though.

Also got a bunch of Adwoa products from the baomint and blue tansy collections. Gonna try and finish most of my stash before I really dig in to some of those products.
Few updates, I finished up my Briogeo Be Gentle Be Kind Shampoo Mini and Conditioner Mini. I really liked both but I'm okay with not purchasing for a while because I miss Adwoa in my collection. I also brought a large size of the Hair Growth Co. Oil to see if it will make a difference long term. Also, my sister gifted my a liter of Oyin Handmade Ginger Mint Cowash since she didn't love it so now that's not on my Black Friday list :). Lastly, I took the SheScentit Moisture Pro Triple Butter Heavy Cream out of my stash to see if I like it as body butter. With the Soultanicals butter in my stash, I never reach for it.
Using up my Saffiyahbotanicals products. Dumped almost gone Hennasooq products.
Gave away all of my henna/Ayurvedic products. Changing my hair routine. I've been using all natural products for years and my hair looks horrible. Time for something new...

What are you thinking of switching to? I see you got some new Adwoa.
I've been working on my sample sizes to move them along and finally get to some full sizes.

Let me know when the 2022 thread goes up.
Already bought what I planned for the quarter lol. Should just stick to replenishing staples after running out for the rest of the year.

Adwoa Beauty Blue Tansy clarifying gel shampoo
Adwoa Beauty Blue Tansy restorative conditioner
This the adwoa products like?
I'm going to try to be good on Black Friday. I did buy some adwoa and briogeo minis during the sephora sale because they've been on my list to try for a while.

My only BF purchase should be Curl Junkie IF they have a sale (they didn't last year, so I'm low on some things)
I've muted all the hair company instagram accounts I follow to keep myself from getting anything else. I got some Mane Choice and the only other thing I want is the Green Beauty REAL Protein Treatment but that can wait until next year.
Allure Beauty Enthusiast and Unilever sent me a 2 full sizes of their Suave shampoo and conditioner. All I did was a survey.
Purchased from Ulta:
Innersense I Create Hold
Design Essentials Almond and Avocado Mousse x2
Eva Nyc Hair Mask

The Innersense and DE are staples. The Eva Nyc is an oldie but goodie.
Got the Green Beauty Protein Treatment.

Rn I'm looking at my stash to see what needs to go before the new year. I'm giving away my Uncle Funky's Daughter to my friend, my hair waxes to my cousin, and idk what I'll do with my Aztec clay yet. I might also give it to my friend or maybe my brother.

I was also looking to use up my As I Am cowash but I had no idea it was still full! I thought it was half way done but I guess not. The stuff I didn't get to finish this quarter are well its way to being done so there will be a lot of empties next quarter. I'm not sure if I'll join this challenge again but I'll post my full stash update probably on the weekend.
I made two Black Friday purchases, an order from Pattern Beauty with Leave-In Conditioner, Styling Custard, Treatment Mask and Intensive Conditioner Sample. Second order from Adwoa Beauty with their Blue Tansy Gel Shampoo and Leave in Conditioner as well as Beaming Leave-In Conditioner.

I finished up my Soultanicals Mango Dip with the Adwoa Beauty Leave-Ins, I'm not in a rush to repurchase though I really do love it.
