How long does it take you to go thru a bottle of condish?

I went thru my AHC in about 1 1/2 months and my mom thought that was really fast and know says I have to buy my own condish if I'm gonna go thru it this fast :x So I was wondering how lond does it take you to use your condish, if it was around 12 oz.

    I'm not CG, an 8 oz. bottle lasts me about 2 months.

    At least 3-4 months. I guess I use much less than most.

    OMG!! One month!?!?! I used up an 8 ounce tube of [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Too-Shea-Extra-Moisturizing-Conditioner-p-105.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-too-shea-extra-moisturizing-conditioner]too shea[/buylink] in 5 DAYS! :(

    I use up a 15oz bottle of suave in about 2 1/2 weeks. When I tried Activate, about 2 weeks. I must use a lot more conditioner than you guys!

    It takes me 1-1/2 months to go thru Curls Asian Hair Tea Conditioner easily, which is my "staple" conditioner. And that stuff is 16 ozs.

    If it’s a good conditioner, it lasts me a month. If I go through it faster, I don’t consider it to be good.
    3a/b, fine, lots of it
  • jeamariajeamaria Posts: 1,851Registered Users
    16 oz would last me a month, if I condition twice a week. Even when I didn't have a clue about adding conditioner till my hair got seaweedy, and I still used to finish my 8oz in a month. If I can avoid it, I would not use a conditioning conditioner to co-wash as well; that way I can stretch it out a little longer.

    I did finish one Suave Naturals conditioner in less than a week, but I was swimming a lot and using it as a pre-swim conditioner, co-wash, regular condish, and leave in.

    It takes me about a month to finish my condish , sometimes longer if i dont CG everyday. I usually do CG every other day anyways.

    I voted 3-4 months, even though I am guessing at how long it will last, but since I only use about a teaspoon a day, I am sure it will last a long time.

    Maybe try CO washing with Suave Naturals, and save the AHC for conditioning only? (That is what I do.) I go through the suave faster, but I still have about 1/2 a bottle left, and I have been CG for a month now.

    Since I use lots for Co washing, I use my cheapie Suave Aloe Vera. The bigger bottle lasts me at least a month. My nicer, creamier conditioner lasts much much longer, since I only use two tablespoons or so. But my hair is much shorter and less thirsty than lots of the lovelies out there...

    Wait, is this COwash or conditioner-conditioner? COwash lasts a couple of weeks. Regular conditioner lasts months.

    I get through an 8oz bottle in 2 -3 weeks. That's conditioning, I don't co-wash.

    This is basically me too, although I rotate conditioner daily so lots of different bottles get used up slowly rather than use one, toss one. I fully wet, condition and detangle my hair at least 4 days a week (usually 5 or 6), so conditioner gets used more than anything else.

    But like someone else said, better conditioner lasts longer. Since I don't condition wash, though, I buy and use much less of the cheap, thin stuff. For example, I only use Suave or VO5 to provide a break from richer conditioner or after coloring.

    Hair length and thickness can affect how much you use as well. I would think those with long locks would use more than someone with a short pixie cut. Mine is kinda in between (about halfway down my back). Also, how often the person uses it (i.e. every day vs. once or twice a week).

    I never really timed how long it takes me, I have had a tendency in the past to get huge bottles of shampoo and conditioner (cheap) that last what seems like forever (then suddenly it's an emergency when I run out!) Now that I'm using Activate Shampoo and Conditioner I wonder when it will run out? My guess is it will be a month or two.

    I voted according to my most recent usage, 1-2 months.

    But I've been trying out the over-conditioned theory for the last few days & am no longer using conditioner 1-2 times a day. Instead on my moisturizing shampoo nights, 2-3 times a week, I don't condition. Then on the off-nights off I condition/rinse & the next morning I water-only rinse & apply my gel or cream/creme without conditioner underneath.

    So far it's working & this method will cut back on conditioner usage.

    Wow, I really use a lot more condish than you guys. :lol: With daily conditioning I go through a big bottle of OneC in about three weeks or so. I think the AHC lasted about 1 1/2 wks. I'm not sure about the condish I use to co-wash with, I only do it once or twice a week so it lasts a really long time.

    Uh...I use like 3 different conditioners at a time, so I can't really tell. I think I went through a bottle of Activate in about a month or alittle more, and a regular v05 in a little less than a month.
