Healthy 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.

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(affiliate link) 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.
