I recently bundled in a snapshot of what I’m currently using with my length check from May and it all seemed pretty reasonable. But I don’t know what has happened since, I feel like I’m using every product I have in the house and I just need to get on top of this before I get overwhelmed.
As much as I try to justify my product junkie ways, I feel it’s getting a little out of hand and I need to KISS.
Yes, it is a stupid little corporate saying but honestly, my product cupboard is far from simple. Actually, that’s a lie – it’s product cupboards (plural).
But as far as I’m concerned, waste not, want not. I wanted all these products at one point. I don’t think any of them are particularly harmful or super bad for my skin and hair. So the plan is to use them all up and replace them with the things I love or are at least, are more considered purchases. I just have too much stuff all at once and it almost feels like a chore, the idea of going through it all, using it all, reviewing it all. As my hair and my kid’s hair gets longer, I need this hair journey to feel as easy as possible or there may be some significant haircuts in our future. And don’t get me started on skin because I don’t even know where to start.
What I’m actually using day to day isn’t too crazy but wooo! My cupboards are bursting!
