Happy Monday lovelies!
I hope you all are having a wonderful day so far. If you're like me, you probably want to go frolic in the wonderful weather outside. Anyway, this past weekend kicked off the start of my spring cleaning. In general, I like to keep my apartment clean but a good deep cleaning every now and again just makes you feel good about life.
But that is not what is post is about.
In my cleaning frenzy, I decided to chuck all the hair products have I haven't used and wasn't going to use. Yep. I couldn't sit and rationalize why I still had hoards of hair products sitting in my cabinet. I had to be really, really honest with myself and just get to removing products. The end result: I can see the bottom of my bathroom cabinet again and I have space to move things around! This has not happened since 2009--when I first moved into my apartment. Within the next week or so, I plan on doing another product purge. From here on out, I will only use the products that are currently in my regimen and use them until they are empty. Yessir.
With that said, I encourage all you PJ's to do a product purge of your own. Take a large trash bag, go into your bathroom, and look at all the products you have accumulated. Be honest with yourself. Ask if you really plan on using a certain product on your hair again? How did your hair react to it? If your hair hated it, that product has no place on your cabinet shelf. If you have NOT used a product within the past year, GET RID OF IT! What you choose to do with your products after you purge them is entirely up to you. You can just toss them completely, sell them, or even donate them to a women's shelter. Whatever you want to do is cool. The point is to free up space in your own bathroom and to really narrow down the products that are staples in your regimen (and are likely to be used). I know it's tough at first but when you see all that freed up space in your cabinet, you will be glad that you did.
I know this post isn't a hair styling post per say but I think it is something that is important to share. Sometimes, we get so caught up in hoarding products that we forget to GET RID OF THEM if they don't work. Getting rid of products that don't work is essential, in my opinion. If you don't see these products, you won't be compelled to 'give them one more try.' If you don't give these products 'one more try,' you won't potentially jack up your hair trying to use the product up. If you don't jack up your hair, you won't suffer a potential setback. See....it all works together lol. So within the next few weeks, take stock of your products and figure out what has to go!
