Ten useful tips on how to save money on hair products

Save your dollars

Save that hard-earned money!

Perhaps you’re running low on cash this month, and you feel the need to cut back on your hair care products. Before running to the nearest dollar store for a hair gel with questionable origins, stop and consider all these tips for saving money on hair products. You don’t have to sacrifice on the quality of hair products because of a tight budget.

Tip #1. Buy in Liters If you have a favorite product that you consistently use, buy it in bulk. What seems like an expensive purchase at the moment will actually save you money in the future. Be sure to buy products you know, love and trust. You wouldn’t buy a gallon of a mysterious deep conditioner just because you want to try it.

Tip #2. Look for BOGO Deals Buy-one-get-one deals are unabashedly awesome. You are essentially getting a product for 50% off. If you see these deals on products you do not need at the moment, look ahead! You might need them in the near future.

Tip #3. Don’t be afraid to give out your e-mail And get more spam, are you kidding me? Actually, giving your email address to your most trusted hair care companies can be advantageous for you. Signing up for newsletters will not only increase your awareness of new products but also of great deals! Many companies send out weekly coupons that you can use to save big. Coupons can be a girl’s best friend.

Hi! I'm Susonnah Gonzalez. I write, work and live in Austin, TX. I began my wavy hair journey in college, which is when I really began to explore the needs of wavy hair and the products that work best with it. Every day is different with my hair but every day I learn something new!

Even if hair products do expire, if you have curly hair you know you will be going through the products very quickly. My last shampoo and conditioner purchase was salon pump size and in less than 4 months I was done with it, and I do not wash my hair everyday. As far as hair styling products they usually do not come in bulk sizes so it is safe to say it should not go bad. :)

I would add to the list requesting samples of products that you're interested in using. Because of the samples I've received from CurlMart, I've saved some money by purchasing (or not purchasing) the products that work for my hair.

Thanks, Diana, for your comment. You're right, and we'll make an adjustment! If you have other tips for saving money on hair products, please add them here to the comments section!

Most hair products don't expire?? That's not true, most come with an exp date and they can lose their potency if not used within that time frame. Holding onto products for years and years could breed bacteria YUCK. As far as using a dime size of conditioner? This totally depends on the conditioner and the person's hair density, texture etc...
