Woman ShampooingWe all want to have hair that is clean and tidy. Many of us are spending a whole lot of money on shampoo and conditioner. It is possible to cut down on the cost of shampoo and still have “good hair days”. Here are a few simple ways to save money on shampoo (and conditioner).

Don’t Wash Your Hair Every Day
That may sound really icky, at first. Did you know that many of us are washing our hair way more often than is necessary? Think of the amount of shampoo you could save if you decided not to wash your hair every single day!

WebMD notes that washing your hair three or four times a week will be sufficient. How often depends somewhat on how oily your hair is and if it is long or short. You can easily skip a day of washing your hair without sacrificing style or good hygiene.

Mix in Some Baking Soda
Adding a little baking soda to your shampoo will make it last longer. It also will get your hair cleaner than if you only used shampoo. Put a quarter-sized amount of baking soda into your palm. Add a small amount of shampoo. Wash and rinse as you normally would do. This technique will help you to stretch out a bottle of shampoo.

Check out the Store Brand
Before you buy another bottle of your favorite shampoo, take a minute to look around. There could be a store brand sitting right next to it that is nearly identical! The store brand is going to cost less money than the brand name one will. Pick up both bottles and compare ingredients. If they match, then there is no logical reason to spend more money on the exact same product.

Use an All-In-One
You could pay for a bottle of shampoo and a bottle of conditioner. Or, you could spend less money by purchasing an all-in-one (that includes both shampoo and conditioner in the same bottle). See if your favorite brand has one. If not, you might find one you like that is from a different brand. It can’t hurt anything to give it a try!

Use some Coupons
It’s funny. People remember to bring their coupons when they are going grocery shopping. But, then they forget to clip the coupons that are for non-food items (like shampoo). Take the time to look at your coupons before you head out to the store. Combine those coupons with in-store sales. See if the store’s loyalty card can drop down the cost a little bit more.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
