I no longer color my hair, which saves us some money. But, when I did color my hair, I would buy my supplies at a beauty supply store. Much cheaper than the drug store brands.
One day at the beauty supply store, I saw a gallon jug of shampoo on sale. I bought one and saw that the directions called for diluting it with water. The one jug has lasted me a long time (over a year) and I still have a lot left. I would recommend diluting all shampoo and conditioner down a bit and it will last a very long time.

Good message. I do the same thing, buy several of what I want on sale. Use less than the instructions dictate. We decide on what, where, and when to spend our money.
I am glad your beauty supply stores are cheap. I tried ours one time and it was a lot higher. Even hair brushes are higher than Roses and WalMart!

You can also get deals on beauty products at Beauty Supply Stores - besides stuff for hair, I picked up 2 jars of eye cream on the sale table as well as other facial products - cheaper than drugstore prices.
It's getting close to Halloween - so remember that you can pick up colored hairspray for costumes - or even to color old wigs - at beauty supply places for less than elsewhere. Lots of colors to choose from and it washes out easily.
