    That's a really great idea! I may have to check into doing that. :love5:

    I usually use them as shaving cream or pass them along to my curly sister.
    I read in a magazine a while back that you can also use conditioners as an in shower body moisturizer by slathering it all over your body and then just letting the water rinse it off your body without srubbing. I've tried it a few times especially during the winter when my skin tends to get very dry and it works pretty well.

    I use them for shaving as well most of the time. Sometimes I'll put it at the back of the pile to try again later on. Sometimes I pass them on the SO to try as well.

    That's a great idea. Wow, it's bad that the hospital doesn't supply conditioner.

    I give mine to my kids. Three of them are doing the conditioner only thing. :)

    I use them! I use all my "bad" products on days where I know I don't need decent hair. The funny thing is, depending on the weather conditions, some of these "bad" conditioners have turned into HGs! Like my hair wasn't loving the Matrix stuff in summer, but on dry winter days I get fabulous curls. So I kind of do product roulette on days I can afford to experiment.

    I am just loving all of you donating ladies! I just went online and looked up a women's shelter near my house! Best idea ever...

    Usually I try to convince my bf to try one. He's my curly guy... so glad he puts up with my nonsense!
