Bulk Hygiene Products Suck. Sort Of.

The title is weird, I know. Being someone who wants to stick to a budget, buying items in bulk is great! I love using Costco to purchase shampoo/conditioner and deodorant. However, for me, they come with a price: my body eventually hates them. By this I mean, if I buy a 5pack of deodorant, I can guarantee that it will stop working for me by the end of the second or third deodorant stick. With shampoo/conditioner, my hair gets too used to the products. With time my hair would get greasy faster and just always felt icky. It was time (probably 5 months ago) to change. I have been going using giant Dove Triple Moisture shampoo and conditioner since late 2013. It’s been a LONG time since I’ve purchased shampoo, but today I finally caved.

I ended up purchasing Herbal Essence’s “Tousle Me Softly” shampoo and conditioner. I also actually chopped my hair off a few days ago and wanted something that would help my new short hair. This was the only set I could find that said for “wavy” hair, so it’s what I went with. The stuff smells great but time will tell how the products work with my hair. After these bottles I will probably end up going back to the Dove, but I need to just mix it up with my hair for awhile. In other news, I’m also in the market for a new hairspray. I’ve had the same bottle for 6 years and it’s finally almost out. Suggestions welcome=)

Does anything like this happen to you with body products?!
