If you are one of those who spend tons of money on expensive, salon type shampoos; stop right here! Here are a couple of tips on how you can trim down your shampoo usage, and thus save some money. Try this – If you cannot part with the idea of using a shampoo, try this for a starter. Add some baking soda to the shampoo that you use. This will get in, and loosen dirt and grease. It will make the shampoo work better, so you use less of it. This will cut the cost down if you cannot give up your favorite brand.
Another solution that you can use with shampoo involves apple cider vinegar and condensed water. Use one fourth of a cup of apple cider vinegar and one gallon of condensed water. Keep this in the refrigerator and use it every two weeks. This will get the dirt and grime out, and save on your usage of shampoos.
If you are a bit more daring, you can actually make your own shampoo at home. Take 1 egg, 1 teaspoon of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of castile soap one half cup of water, and any essential oil that you like. Mix it all up and you have your own homemade shampoo ready. This will be better than anything a salon has to offer. It will give your hair a deep cleaning without the additives and harsh chemicals that most of the store bought brands tend to have.
Finally, you can clean your hair and scalp quite well by just using baking soda. Massage it into you scalp and rinse away. The soda absorbs dirt, odors, and oils. Your hair may feel dry at first, but after a few times, it will be shiny and flake free. Massaging your scalp can promote hair growth and reduce headaches as well.
