Shampoo and Conditioner


No matter how hard I try I can never use them equally, conditioner typically runs out first, then I have to go buy some other random conditioner to use until my shampoo runs out – which always seems to take longer than desired.

Every morning I get into my shower and I am reminded that I still haven’t used up that bottle of shampoo. I am tempted to be wasteful, squirting much more than needed into the palm of my hand in an effort to make it go away so that I can go to the store, buy some matching shampoo and conditioner and start the process all over again.

Sometimes I catch Ryan using my shampoo – which typically would be irritating since his shampoo costs about .99 cents for a huge bottle and mine is…more than that – but in our case the more shampoo he uses the happier I am…

…UNLESS I have just purchased two fresh matching bottles and I catch him with the shampoo. Then I get mad that he is making them uneven.

I am really hard to live with.

  1. Oh, I feel like “Real Simple” magazine right now! Here are my tips to solving one of the many universal female problems. I keep an extra bottle of each….strictly back up bottles. They hide under the sink until I need them. I use them to refill bottles, or to swap until I can replace them both with brand spankin’ new bottles! OR – when I want to empty a bottle – I fill a travel bottle!

  2. HAHA! I also run out of shampoo earlier and since my S/C is way more expensive than the $2 stuff Steve uses, I try to buy it on special, as a pair! So THEN, i HAVE to use Steve’s $2 stuff until I’m 100% out – which is annoying!! Maybe this isn’t so much OCD, as it is just being a girl!

  3. Had not realized you had a bit of the OCD, Amber! You would make a great OR nurse, a job for which a certain amount of anal retentiveness is considered essential!I never have this problem because I always buy 2 C’s for every 1 S, and it comes out very nicely. 🙂

  4. I’m laughing so hard right now because I am in the same predicament! 3 days ago, my conditioner ran out. I was so mad because I tried so hard this time to always use the same amount of shampoo and conditioner. I thought I was doing such a good job…until 3 days ago. Now I either have to use no conditioner until my shampoo is gone, or use something that doesn’t match. How annoying…Heidi

  5. Hmmm. I always use up the shampoo first. But, I only condition every other day. My shampoo costs MUCH more than Mark’s; he’d better not be using it.
