homemade shampoo barThe market today is flooded with hair care products that are supposed to help you get your hair in the shape you want it to, whether that be thick and curly or tamed and straight. Even then, beauty product manufacturers continue to keep on making new products and having people test out their trial hair care products before deciding to launch them or go back to the drawing board. There are so many free samples being given out that some people almost make a part-time job out of getting the latest ones so as to save on shampoo, conditioners, and hair care devices.

If your goal is to find the newest product to suit your hair’s needs while saving money, why not stay clear or trials and instead make your own hair care products right at home? You have plenty of options, and sometimes raiding your pantry is all you need to do. For example, do you know that you can use mayonnaise as a deep conditioner? You can also make your own shampoo bar, as shown on the photo. Looking for homemade alternatives is also safer than getting free trial products because you know what goes into what you’re using.
