I have a lot of beauty and hygiene products stored under my bed and cabinet, most of which I don’t even like that much! Here I’ll share some alternate uses for conditioner so you can get more bang for your buck. You’ll be greener by using up old products in different ways, hence stopping you from purchasing products you technically don’t need since you can substitute them.
Here are some alternative uses for hair conditioner:
- The easiest and most popular alternative use for conditioner would be to use it as shave gel. Most conditioners are really thick, meaning they will help prevent nicks from your razor.
- Make your body hair softer by using conditioner as moisturizer! Occasionally I’ll use it on my arms. If you use a small amount it doesn’t feel sticky.
- You can easily make a DIY deep conditioner by combining EVOO with normal conditioner, just have it sit in your hair for a few hours while you do homework. I show you how in this video.
- Use conditioner as shampoo! Sounds weird, I know, but it works! Learn more about “no poo” CO washing routines if you are interested.

How do you re-use products in different ways?
