Is Your Hair Care Regimen Too Expensive? 4 Ways To Reduce The Cost Of Hair Care

vo5 conditioner2. Cheap products work too!

You have seen many articles on Black Hair Information on cheap products that work very well just as the expensive ones.

Sometimes, the expensive hair care products are overrated for a healthy hair regimen and really what matters is how you use the products you find that are affordable.

Look at reviews for the products you are interested in and never go for the band wagon product. Those tried and true cheap ones might work and if they do not you can always make them work by adding other ingredients.

This leads us to the next point!

3. Create your own hair products

Another way you can reduce your expenses on hair care is to create your own hair products. You don’t have to completely trade all of your commercial products for organic and natural ones, but you can swap a few. For example, that mist you love to buy may be your favorite because it moisturizes and makes your hair smell so divine.


Well, you can swap your commercial mist for a DIY spray full of water, oil, and essential oils for a sweet-smelling aroma. There are many hair recipes you can find for your own hair care needs.

You can learn to make your own hair products from cleansers to moisturizers, deep conditioners and more. If you are interested in creating your own hair products, you can save lots of money by purchasing the oils, herbs, and juices in bulk.

This will give you your money’s worth over time. If you see a recipe calling for an oil that is too expensive for you, use another oil that your hair does like and fits your budget. Start off small and see what you and your hair likes.

4. Create a budget and stick to it 

As you create your own hair care regimen, think about what you really need to have healthy hair. Focus on learning your hair first, then find styles that you would like to do to your hair on a consistent basis.

Research and purchase products that will accommodate your hair care needs and the styles you want, then create your hair care regimen. There is no need to go through more trial and error than you need to if you just take your time in creating your regimen.

The budget you create for yourself will be based on this specific regimen that you have. We know you like to switch things up a bit but if you are really strict about your spending then changing everything every couple of months is just something you will not be able to do especially if it means heading to Target or Sallys.

The great thing about consistency is that you will get the most value from your hair if you are disciplined with your regimen. This benefits your pockets and your goals!

How do you save money on your hair care?

how often do you comb out your hair, i find i have serious knots after 3 days!

Try stretching your hair using the banding method to reduce knots

I find that three days is the max I can wear an out style before it starts to knot up. I usually do flat twists or two strand twists that I can wear for a few days, then wear the resulting twist out for a day or two right before wash day.

Fortunately my hair likes the products that are within my budget (Shea Moisture) and I also make my own deep conditioner, which cuts the cost down. I’ve slowly built up a supply of essential oils so I make my own daily spritzes. I buy mostly natural products so when I find one I especially like, I will try to make it myself once I’m through with the store-bought product.

Trying products that healthy hair enthusiasts, bloggers and vloggers rave about will have you spending way too much money. Been there. Learning what ingredients work for you is the cheapest way out. That way, you’re not wasting money on things that does not work for your hair.

When I first went natural, I thought I had to buy all the expensive products to do awesome natural styles and for my hair to grow…really it’s all in how you do your hair. The products help, but expensive ones don’t make the style. But what is expensive to one may be right in the budget for another. I’m with the Cantu line! Been using it for years and my natural hair is healthy and BSL now. So it really depends on you. Good article
