4. Shop clearance and sales
Every time I’m in Target I always make it a habit to go by the clearance end cap of all of the sections but especially the health and beauty section. I can almost guarantee that every time you look you will find some kind of hair product marked down.
Anything from Shea Moisture* to Cantu. Browse these sections and see if some of your faves are on clearance. Also CVS and Walgreens often have BOGO sales for Shea Moisture* where you can buy one product and get one free. Pair this with a coupon and you have a pretty good deal!
5. Sample before you buy
One of the biggest mistakes we often make is that we will see a product on the shelf and be so quick to pick it up and buy without knowing if it will actually work for our hair.
I’m guilty of this! Hence, how I spent soo much money in the beginning. One of the biggest tips I can offer is don’t think that just because a hair product works for someone else that it will work for you! Every Beauty World or Beauty Supply Store has a section of sample packs and most of them are natural hair products!
Although these usually aren’t free they are around $1 and you can try to see if you want to make that commitment. For example Miss Jessie’s is a popular natural hair care line but the products are pretty pricey (~$30/item). I’d rather buy a $2 sample of it to try before I spend $30 and risk it not working for me! Just do a basic google search and you’ll be sure to find some freebies.
So there you have it. My top 5 tips. Applying these will definitely make you save money! One bonus tip is to Recycle and reuse! I often use old grocery bags instead of shower caps* for my deep conditions and protein treatments. I’m just going to throw it away when I’m done anyway! Being natural does not have to be expensive. By incorporating these money saving tips I now have more money in pockets to spend on others things such as traveling!
What are some of the things you do to save money on products?
