Getting More for Your Shampoo and Conditioner

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.

While you do pay more in the beginning, I find this is the best for your dollar.  These types of products are so well formulated that you actually need less product.  Personally, I prefer attaching a pump as well on my containers, as it really allows no over usage.  If you have short hair, you really need only one pump.  If you have longer hair, you could be looking at 2 to 3 pumps.  Even with my long hair before, it was common for the bottles to last me 5 months.  I actually came out ahead in the long run.  If you can't get to a beauty outlet store for your best deal, try checking out Home Sense or Winners-I've often seen professional products there, such as A/G, Chi, Big Sexy Hair, etc.

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?
