Are my products still good?
I recently had the opportunity to clean out my bathroom cupboards, and was a little surprised to find that I was hording some pretty old hair styling product.
Way back behind some cleaning supplies I had some root lifting gel and strong hold hair spray from when I had short hair, I realize that I have been wearing my hair long now for the last four years! First off let me say, the odds are good that I won’t be cutting my hair short any time soon, and the product I had for my short hair is way too heavy and not at all what I would use on the style I’m wearing now, so no point in taking up the valuable real-estate under my sink. Second, that stuff is now too old! How do I know this? Well, if you look at the back of your product packaging you will see a cartoon image of a container followed by a number. This will tell you how many months your product is good for once it been opened, begins to lose integrity and possibly lose resistance to bacteria (especially when talking about mascara or skin care). So…check under your sink, in your cabinets and throw those old products away!
