    So, I'm in on my own challenge...

    I am only allowed to repurchase staples products that I use up. That's IT!

    Because of my rule, some of you better be ready to share some juicy details on things I haven't tried yet. Pretty please, with sugar on top? :)

    I want some Curl Rehab...**kicks pebble**

    I already posted mine, but here they are again!

    - Can only buy RO staples that can be purchased on the ground (Tresemme Naturals, VO5, Garnier Pure Clean)
    - Re-up on documented staples when NEEDED (no hauling!)

    Oh my god YESSSSS. Count me in!

    My rule is like others: no purchases unless it's rebuys. Other than my SheaMoisture Curl and Style Milk and Garnier stuff I don't even really have "staples", so whatever. And there's no target close enough for me to lose my head in and walk out with like, seven different things.

    @ Greenandchic: stupid question. What is the Ion supposed to do? I got it from a friend and can't make heads or tales if it.
    I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

    Its a protein treatment. I use it after shampooing and before conditioning. Its something I do about once a month (depending on the amount of protein that's in my leave-in and stylers). I usually go by how my hair feels and looks.

    Oh gosh, I can't spell :)

    I figured it was a protein treatment. I used it with egg and HEHH yesterday and it was awesome.

    Thanks for the info. I will now leave the PJs alone :D
