I dye my hair, and I normally use two boxes at a time. I don't always use both of the shampoo / conditoner tubes that come with them, and so I just keep the tubes in a box somewhere.
I was having a bit of a clearout the other day, and noticed that a LOT of these tubes, and thought I'd start using them. Then it hit me, rather than trying to use each mini tube at a time, why not put them in a bottle?

I stumbled across some travel size bottles from Primark recently. A pack of two lip-balm style jars, a funnel, and three plastic bottles with click open tops, plus some labels, for 99p. I thought I'd use those, and hey presto, I have some handy bottles of shampoo and conditioner.

P.S. The shampoo isn't yellow, it's just my poor lighting!

lol, my mum has been doing that for years. She has short hair, so she never uses up the conditioner and just fills it into a bottle. Once the bottle is full, she moves it to the shower and starts on another one. She actually uses the small plastic mixer bottle you get with the kit. Just rinse well before use.

That is so clever !!! I have several partial tubes I could use up this way.

I keep the little bottles for holidays. I've got loads of those Primark bottle kits though! Irresistible!  :mwaha:
