I'm a Product Junkie!

Ok, i'm officially a product junkie. I was actually a product junkie before I decided to go natural, but the 'j' in me has taken a turn for the worse. During my springbreak I decided I would rid myself of unnecessary products and things I don't use. Well, as I sit here and gaze at the myriad of hair, bath, and body products, I realize that I truly have my work cut out for me. I NEED HELP. I think it might help if I categorize my products and then rank them according to their effectiveness on my hair. Then I will have to decide if they're keepers or not. I'll start with shampoo. (The lower the number, the more effective it is for my hair.)

After this realization, it is time for some purging! Also, with this economy, I should be wiser with my money. Oh well, until next time.
