Shampoo and conditioner can be quite expensive. But if you know how to choose your products, you can stretch your dollar a lot further.
Tip #1: Consider professional quality brands.
On a side note, a lot of regular shampoos and conditioners will add wax to your hair whereas the professional stuff doesn't.
Tip #2: Add water
This tip comes from the newest issue of Cosmopolitan-add water. When you think you need more suds from your shampoo, try adding a bit of water. The water reactivates the formula and gives more suds. I tried this myself when my squirt didn't seem to be doing it with all the gunk in my hair. Adding water worked!
Tip #3: Use a comb
My hairdresser gave me this tip when my hair was long-use a comb to comb conditioner through your hair. I have fine hair, and too much conditioner can weigh it down. By combing it through, all was evenly distributed.
So whether you save a buck or a lot of bucks, it's worth it...who knows what you can do with your money saved?
