My Personal War with Products

I recently decided to reorganize my closets and deciliter everything from last year. I keep everything in bins that are labeled in the front with the thought that I'm a step ahead by doing so. I came to the linen closet and pulled out five large bins of just hair products. When I poured them onto the floor to sort them I was amazed. I can't believe the amount of money that I have spent of just hair product alone. There were at least 25 bottles of just shampoo that I have not used more then two times. Conditioners that were used once and in the largest sized available to buy. Now that doesn't included the styling products that look as if I have really never used them at all. Balms, mousses, gels and clips and hair ties in every shade of the rainbow. I had two bottles of the same leave in conditioners that I have never opened that had price tag of $19.99 on them. I thought that this was so unbelievable and I will be opening an account with e-bay to sell all these products due to the fact that some were new and said to "make my hair flawless." So seeing all these products it made me think that I must have a mental block that tells me to go buy it cause I see it on television. Order it cause the computer told me to do it today, or worse. Or someone said, "girl that stuff is wonderful, you should try it." Without giving up a small sample.
Why do I have this problem?
I buy all this stuff and use it, then decide that it doesn't smell right. It doesn't lather and that it does nothing for my hair like it was said to do. Then instead of taking it back and getting my money back, I'm right back at the Beauty Brands buying more use less products. At least with the sisterlocks I was be limited to the amount of products and the type of products that I'm able to buy and use. Right now I'm nuts about the Knotty Boy products and I don't even have the locks yet.From my count I have spent the useless amount of $455.00 without tax that is just sitting back in the bins in the closet. I need to slap myself for that.

Does anyone else have the buying products sickness?

I was addicted to hair oils: Carrot oil, olive oil, tea tree oil all types you name it.

I love oil to mostly coconut oil but that I would use :-). I do love a good sheer lip gross. I will most likely start back on that as soon as I get locked.
