Hey You – You Use Too Much Shampoo!

good shampoos

You guys, listen to me for a second. Or maybe more than a second. Ahem. A lot of you are using TOO MUCH of your shampoo and conditioner! It’s wasteful of the product and it’s making you have to buy more and more way too fast!I know that I fall prey to squeezing out too much shampoo/conditioner into my hands, but that’s why we must be vigilant!

“How much shampoo should I use?” About the size of a quarter if you have really long hair.  If you have short hair use a dime-sized amount of shampoo. Excess shampoo foam means you’ve just wasted a lot of the product. Yipes. Trust me, you aren’t THAT dirty.

“How much conditioner should I use?” Much less than you think! Just a dime-sized amount if you have medium-length hair.

Pureology hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner duo for $37.95. (max 2 deals p/order) @ Amazon $40 (Cheapest Duo Deal I could find!) This seems to be loved by people, with very high five star Amazon ratings. Interesting… I might need to check this out more.

Well, most of the fashionable items that Bilson told Lucky she likes are super expensive. Of course, I’m used to that with this magazine – or magazines in general. But if you really want something that Rachel Bilson covets, what can you get? Beauty products are less expensive than the leather jacket she’s selected, so let’s look at those.

Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara in Black – $8.  Bilson tells Lucky Magazine, “I love this mascara from Neutrogena. I put it on in the morning and never have to think about.” This seems to be a very popular mascara, I’d try it for sure.  ... Read More
