Save Money on Hair Care

Guest Author - Lynne Chapman

When times are tough and money is tight, we find ourselves trying to save money where ever we can. Sometimes we have to look to our hair care products to cut back. Fortunately there are ways to save money without sacrificing the condition or the appearance of your hair.

Shampoo and Conditioner
Professional shampoo is almost always of better quality than “store bought” shampoo and conditioner. Professional shampoo and conditioners may, at first, seem more expensive for similar sized bottles of less expensive shampoo but they are also more concentrated.
  • Since lesser priced products are thinner and more watery, it is easy to use more than you need. More pours out of the bottle than you expect in contrast to a thicker product.
  • If your family uses more shampoo than necessary, thus wasting precious product, it is possible to dilute it without sacrificing quality. To make your professional shampoo last longer, add about one eighth to one quarter bottle of water. Be careful not to add too much water or the product will run through your fingers and down the drain. Mix by tipping the bottle back and forth gently. Don’t shake.

If your hair is strong and you do not chemically enhance it, such as with hair color or permanent waves or relaxers, or mechanically, such as flat irons, you can get satisfactory results from less expensive products. Everything that you do to your hair, chemically or mechanically can damage the structure of your hair. The more you damage your hair the more important it is to use high quality products.

When using conditioner, pour a small amount in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together to distribute it and then run your hands through towel blotted hair.
  • To make your conditioner go farther use it only on the hair that needs it. In longer hair, the ends will need conditioning. The root area or the hair that is newest will not need as much conditioning. After applying conditioner to the ends, work it toward the scalp without adding more product.

Styling Mousse, Styling Gel, Hair Spray, etc
Making your styling products go farther is more difficult. I do not suggest diluting them and using lesser quality products may result in residue build-up and dull hair.
  • Use your quality styling products only where they are needed such as the root area or the bangs.
  • Heat protectant products and leave in conditioners need to be used on all places that will be touched by flat irons, curling irons or hot rollers.
  • Use hair spray only where you need it. Non-aerosol sprays are more economical since they are easier to direct and are not apt to be sprayed into the air.

Larger Quantities
Professional products are often on sale at much more reasonable prices when they are liter or gallon sizes. When purchasing larger sized products, transfer the contents to smaller containers for ease of use or purchase a pump dispenser
.
Take a day off
Save on product by not styling your hair every day. On weekends or your day off, don’t shampoo or if you must, don’t use styling products. Use head bands or pony tails to control your hair.

Luxury at an affordable price.
