Frugal Tip Of The Day - Stretch Your Shampoo and Save Your Hair

I once dreamed of being a hairstylist, and towards that end, I attended hairstyling school One lesson I learned there has served me well, both financially and for the health of my hair.

All shampoo is too strong for your hair. To protect your hair, and your pocketbook, you should dilute your shampoo 7 parts water to 1 part shampoo. You're diluting it after you get it on your hair anyway, so why not just do it ahead of time? By applying this diluted shampoo to your hair, you are avoiding damage that full strength shampoo can cause, and also saving money on shampoo and conditioner (the less damage, the less conditioner you need.)


  1. I've gotten to the point where I only have to wash and condition my hair once a week. I condition twice a week though.

    I started this about 4 months ago. My head was greasy, but it stopped after 3 weeks. Now I only have to wash my hair once a week. I think it is healthier and keeps it down better.

  2. I have heard about a baking soda hair wash that will do that, but I've never tried it. My hair isn't greasy, but it's very fine and gets stringy after only one day.
