Oh yeah, I told you that this is how I get down! *lol* So, I mentioned in the post earlier today that I pre-pooed with a combo of Aubrey GPB and Honeysuckle Rose conditioners mixed with Vatika oil. And, although I have new bottles of both under the sink (‘cuz you know I always have my HGs and staples “in stock”), I also had open bottles of each. The thing is, neither had enough product in the container to shake out. Enter the butcher’s knife! I’ll cut open a bottle in a minute! You see how much was in there?!?! Bump that!
But guess what? There may be a better way that’s still pretty economical!! When I posted this pic on my Hairscapades FB page with the caption, “I’m getting ALL of my conditioner” (btw, 128 ladies have liked this pic so far! LOVE it!! *LOL*), Tiffany Divalocks wrote:
I will be doing the same thing when mine is low, I was just thinking of that when I used this same conditioner today on my daughter’s hair. You know they sell these things called beauty spoons and you stick it in the bottle and scoop out the product that you can’t reach.
Beauty Spoons?? Who said what now? You know that I immediately went on the hunt! Well, I found the tool and site immediately … because they are both called, Beauty Spoon!
Ummmm, so yeah, it’s already done. I placed my order within an hour of learning about the tool. The spoons are $9.99 for a set of two (7″ and 10″) and shipping is FREE (that’s what sold me). Also, for a limited time, you can get two 1 oz. “Beauty Bowls” with every order.
So, stay tuned for the full review coming soon … *looking around for an almost empty bottle of product*.
How do you make certain that you get your money’s worth out of your products? Have you tried the Beauty Spoon?
To keep from tossing out woefully disappointing hair conditioners, I've been known to use them as shaving cream and at times, body gel. You'd be surprised at the effectiveness-- many conditioners contain moisturizing agents AND surfactants.
When I was going hard with the Aubrey HSR (circa 2009), I'd often find myself with an almost empty bottle. So, I'd hold the opening under the shower stream for a second to allow some warm water in, then I'd seal it off with the palm of my hand, and give the bottle a shake with the other. This action cuts the thick consistency and allows the rest of the product to be easily removed and greatly enjoyed as the runnier consistency makes for a slipperier (is that a word?) experience.
And like Shelli, I too have been known to cut a bottle in half. Remember SheaMoisture's delicious, rich and super thick leave-in conditioner? You have no option but to cut that joint in half when it's running on E. Which reminds me... it may be time for a revisit!
Finally, is it just me, or did the creative name and what must have been the masterful thought process behind 'beauty spoons' conjure imagery of Cole's 'rent 'em spoons'? No, just me? Okay. #WeServeEmSoupForFree #RentEmSpoons
