$10

If you were only able to spend $10 on hair products, every 2-3 months, what products would you purchase or do you think you would need?

If you ask me that question, I would purchase:


$1.00

V05 Clarifying Shampoo- Although this product contains sulfates, the stripping effect can be avoided by simply doing a prepoo treatment before washing. There are other V05 shampoo's other than the above, but that that is the only one I have tried. 


$1.00
V05 Moisture Milks Conditioner- This conditioner made my hair so soft! It's a great for the price and could be doctored up for a few different purposes. 
1.) Leave-in- Just dilute this with distilled water and apply after washing
2.) Deep Condtioner- Either add an egg if you need a protein treatment or some Extra Virgin Olive Oil if you need a moisturizing treatment. 
3.) Moisturizer- Yes, I have seen some people use this just to moisturize their hair. I would stay away from the scalp if doing this though. 


$4- $6.00 (depending if there is a sale)

Extra Virgin Olive Oil- EVOO is one of the few oils that actually penetrate the hair shaft...so using this oil has many great benefits. 
There are so many ways this can be used!
1.) Hot Oil Treatment after or before washing
2.) Added to conditioner to double up as a deep conditioner
3.) To seal your hair after moisturizing 
4.) You could basically mix this into just about anything to get that extra umph!


$1.59- $2.00

 Half Dozen Eggs
My hair needs SOME kind of protein in a course of 3 months. That's where the eggs come into play. I would just add one to a moisturizing conditioner and maybe a little oil. 

$0 (well excluding the water bill which you may have to pay anyway)


To avoid frizzy, rigid hair, do a cold water rinse(as your final rinse after washing to close the cuticle of your hair. 
If you hair hair low-porosity- rinse with warm water. 


What does that give me? A total of $7.59- 10.00?!
 I keep telling people that to obtain and maintain healthy hair... it shouldn't break the bank. So if you're on a budget, improvise and you will be sure to get or keep healthy hair!
