Best "time" to try new products?

I am sooooo eager to BUY! lol

OMG, my list...... even to buy just samples of all the items on my list.... :blackeye:

I've been reading a lot about winter weather changes and product change. And I realize that summer routines and winter routines can be different...

But do you think there's an "ideal" time to try new products?

    The Weekend lol!

    But I wait until it's really constantly cold out or really constantly warm out, to see what products work when. The spring/fall 60 degrees one day/10 the next (especially indiana) is a bad time to get a products effect

    Personally, my inner PJ says that ANY day is a good day LOL....:twisted: It's pretty typical though around this time of year (seasonal changes) that we start to need other types of products for our hair.

    Lol, to be honest I just try new products anytime during the year just to see how they combat the weather change. As soon as I buy a product I don't see any point in waiting, I just try it out, lol. I agree though, the environmental changes affect our hair and we have to use maybe a less or more hardcore product depending on the weather. But if you don't actually try the product, you don't know how it will 'react'. Just go for it! (says the PJ of all time)

    I usually do my experimenting with new products on the weekends too. :D If I can't wait to try them, I will do it on a weekday and just have a backup plan (headband, hairclip, BLAX band, etc.) in case it turns awful at work.

    If humectants are high on the ingredient list I wont do it in lower dews but besides I'll try new stuff any time. And I'll try the same product in summer if it didn't work in the winter. You never know. The Duchess of Curls didn't work for me in spring but in fall I'm super impressed. Ingreients/dews are keys (most of the time) in my experience. I spent a lot of unnecessary, but fun, money in the beginning until I learned about dews.
