For some of us, there’s a tendency to spend more than we’d like to on beauty products. At the same time, we’d rather not have to deal with adding the chemicals contained in some of those products to our hair and skin on a regular basis. And last but not least, the fact that we pay good money for the ‘privilege’ of adding those things to our bodies is insulting.
For just about every beauty product you currently purchase and use, there’s a DIY alternative that’s just as good, or in most cases, better than store bought. In addition, there’s no risk of adding unhealthy chemicals to your hair and skin, and you can customize your products with whatever oils and scents your little heart desires 🙂
I’ve put together a short list of 7 DIY Beauty Products That can Save You TONS of Money.

Dry shampoo can be great when you can’t spare the time to actually get your hair wet. It’s great when used in a pinch, but it isn’t by any means a substitute for good old water and wet shampoo.
Here’s a way to wash your hair without having to get it wet. It works best for when you want to keep your roots clean without necessarily getting the rest of your hair soaked. A great recipe to keep on hand that can save you some dough on pricey shampoos.

The scrub leaves you smelling like an irresistible pumpkin spice latte!
