From these products I decided that the V05 conditioner and Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose are both getting tossed. I explained why I preferred the Umberto conditioner to the V05 in my last post. With regard to the AOHSR although it works, I have an issue with its 'spreadability'. In comparison to my other moisturizing dc, Nexxus Humectress, AOHSR isn't as creamy so its harder for me to apply it evenly through my hair. Because of this I'm pretty sure I end up using more of the product than I should. Since the Humectress is easier to apply and pretty much gives me the same results I'll be sticking to that one. I also clearly need to keep track of how much ORS Conditioner I have so i don't go out and buy more when I have a full bottle at home lol
The Vo5 Tea Therapy shampoo is extremely drying so I'm using that and my kerapro shampoo thats not pictured to wash my makeup brushes. When I switched to ORS lye relaxer I purchased that huge green bottle of neutralizing shampoo. Since the ORS neutralizing shampoo works as a clarifying shampoo it will replace my Ion shampoo and the creamy aloe shampoo. The TRESemme moisturizing shampoo was really cheap yet works well, so I'll be switching to that once my NTM is finished.
My keepers here are my ORS moisturizing lotion, S Curl(my staple in the later stages of my stretches) and the ORS heat protectant. The ORS HAIRepair are both brand new and will be used in my blog giveaway next month :)
The only product I use regularly from here is the 2 min reconstructor. However, I will hold on to the Aphogee 2 step just in case I ever have another moisture overload.
Relaxers, Gel, Oils etc
The Hollywood Beauty castor oil got tossed in the trash, and the hot 6, coconut and jamaican black castor oils will not be repurchased. My hair is doing just fine with my sulphur/castor oil mix and extra virgin olive oil.
I will not be trying any new products over the next 30 days, so hopefully by then my stash will be halved...hopefully.
Sidenote: Do you guys like the new look of the blog? I figured it was about to be a year old so it was time for me to jazz it up a bit :)
