NC – How to Reuse Old Hair Products


I am not a real product junkie but I have quite a few products collecting dust in my bathroom cabinet.  I know I’m not the only one so I thought I would share some tips on what to do with them instead of throwing them away and throwing away money.  I haven’t tried any of these tips but they sound pretty good.


Whether it didn’t have enough slip, was too thick or thin, or didn’t pack a moisture punch, you can always use leftover conditioner as shaving cream. I discovered this in a bind when I ran out after doing one leg and did not want to suffer the consequences of shaving dry. The conditioner was handy so I slathered it on and was surprised at the close shave that I got without irritation. The best part was that my legs felt so soft when I was done. 

Moisturizers and Leave-ins 

If you have a moisturizer or leave-in collecting dust, try using it to moisturize your body. Many of the all natural moisturizers and body lotions have the same ingredients so why not use your hair product on your skin?

Just passing on info that may keep a few extra dollars in your pocket and allow you to not feel so bad about those products that didn’t quite work.  

Let’s save a few dollars Naturals,

    I love the shaving cream idea. I ran out a couple of weeks ago and I remembered seeing that on Pinterest. My legs came out so smooth.

      I tried this for the first time and it really made my legs smooth! I usually just use body wash but I liked how the razor glided across my legs.

    I have been shaving my legs with conditioner for years, but I have never moisturized my body with an old leave in. Good tip, I think I will try that.
