5 Cheap Items You Need In Your Hair Arsenal

4chairHealthy hair and all the products and tools that come along with it, can add up. If you also factor in the secret product junkie that lies within most of us, things can quickly get out of hand.

How many times have you honestly looked in the cabinet under your bathroom sink and mentally scolded yourself for how out of control you’ve allowed your product hoarding to get? It has happened to us all. You should regularly go through your products to check the expiration dates. Believe it or not, those products do expire and need to be thrown out at some point.

Product hoarding and overspending may seem like an easy problem to fix, but it isn’t like you can avoid buying hair products altogether. This makes the matter a tiny bit tricky.

Staying aware of costs, versus amount of product, versus how often you will really be using a product, can be a bit cumbersome when you’re shopping for hair products. Hopefully this article will make things a bit easier by giving you some go-to products that work and that don’t break the bank. At least you won’t feel so bad when you throw out an expired product that you only paid $2.00 for.

Let’s get in this list of 5 cheap items you need in your hair arsenal.

Shower caps

Deep conditioning treatments are more effective when used in combination with heat. We all know that. We also know that we need to cover the hair before we apply heat to it. Using a shower cap is an extremely easy and efficient way to cover the hair while applying heat during a deep conditioning session.


There are other ways to cover the hair, like warm towels, heat activating caps, and so on, but the cheapest way is to buy a bulky pack of shower caps and dive in. Plus, shower caps pull double duty because, well duh, you can use them when you shower too.

You can find a pack of shower caps at your local beauty supply store or even your local dollar store. They should be less than $5.00. Pick up a pack of 100 and forget about having to repurchase them for a good 3-4 months.

    I don’t know if it was a typo but 100$ per bottle for conditioner? ????????

      HaHaHa! I was thinking the same thing: “Beauty supply stores and other local retailers carry cheap conditioners for as little as $100 per bottle. You can’t beat that and you can multiple sessions of use out of one bottle if you’re using it to mix in with other products.”

    Please help me. I’m missing something. I only counted 4 items: Shower Cap. Conditioner, Hair Mask, and Hair Gel.
    OH!! Yes, I think the $100/bottle conditioner is a typo. I think it should be $1.00/bottle. HAHAHAHAHA! Bless her heart!

  3. Carla Laster

    I was just thinking the same thing about both.
