    I've read that expiration dates don't really mean that the product expires on this particular day, it means that if you use it past this date and get an allergic reaction, the company won't be responsible for the outcome.

    I use up most of my hair stuff in three weeks tops, it's hard to hoard products when you're bathing your hair in bottles of conditioner at a time so yeah, the only experience I have is Lush, their stuff definitely starts to smell funky after expiration date, but they do put a ton of natural ingredients there. I think I probably wouldn't risk using any product after the exp. date, if there's a possibility of irritation, my sensitive butt will get it. If you're ok with it, then great

    Interesting to know! Thanks for sharing. I'm really sensitive to random things at times (I've recently suddenly become lactose intolerant as well as allergic to a previously loved oil!) but share hair shampoos and conditioners with others I live with. Everyone uses them up frequently and so none of them stick around for long. It would be neat to know if they can possibly affect me when they pass their exp dates, not that I'd love to find out though With other long-term items, not hair-related, I've never experienced anything going wrong, so hopefully it's a good sign
