Save Money By Using the Right Amount of Shampoo


According to Cosmo, I use way too much shampoo.  I am not sure why I started wondering how much shampoo you should use,  but yesterday I did.  So I grabbed my phone. “OK Google, how much shampoo should you use?”  Up popped this super helpful chart from Cosmopolitan magazine. It shows how much of all types of hair products you should be using.

I learned I am using way too much shampoo and not enough mousse. Who knew? I am going through my shampoo twice as fast as I need to be.

How about you?  What are you using too much/ not enough of?  Check out the chart.
