If you live in a climate where there’s a constant changing of seasons, then you know how valuable it is to have hair products at your disposal that tend to all of your hair’s needs: Cleansing, moisturizing, strengthening and styling.

There’s a few things that can help you keep your arsenal of hair products stocked, easy to access and simple to see what you need to restock. (Keep reading for a link to where I order many of my go-to hair products at the best prices!)

5 Tips for Organizing Hair Products

Choose your product sizes wisely

Forget buying super size containers of styling products if you buy and mostly use natural hair products. They will more than likely go to waste due to limitations in shelf life. If you tend to use the same products again and again (not always a good idea when the climate changes from hot to cold), you can get away with a larger sized container. However, don’t buy multiples or you may find that you’ve wasted your hard earned cash.

Organize your hair products by type

Keeping cleansers with cleansers and conditioners with conditioners for example, will help you easily see what you need to restock. It also allows you to see how much variety is in the type of hair products you have within your arsenal.

For instance, when you keep your hair cleansers together you can quickly spot that you have a co-wash, a clarifying shampoo and a moisturizing shampoo. The same goes for stylers. Keep them together but clearly segregated:

Gels with gels

Creams with creams and …

Butters with butters.

You get the picture.

Keep products where you use them

If you wash your hair in the shower, it makes sense to keep your hair cleansers and conditioners in that location. This way you’ll have easy access to them when you’re ready to use them.

I like to keep my stylers and oils in my bedroom because when I sit down at my vanity, I’m able to grab them and get my hair done in record time.

Buy more than one product at a time

Wait, did I just say that? Why yes I did!

I know it seems to contradict the first tip but it’s an exception when it comes to your shampoos and conditioners. We especially tend to use a lot more conditioner than other hair product types. I can seriously go through a jar of deep conditioner in 4 uses and my hair isn’t even super dense.

One of the easiest ways to keep certain hair products stocked (the ones you use up quickly) is to order them online in advance.

Store your hair products aesthetically

Storing your hair products in clear bins or pretty containers helps you to not only organize them but appreciate them.

I have so many beautiful jars of hair products. This makes me more inclined to use them (and not skip certain parts of my hair routine) when they are displayed beautifully.

I also like to use a combination of colored storage containers and open shelving in certain areas of my home. Lazy Susans are also a great option.

These can be used in cabinets or on shelves:

Since I live in an apartment, I have to be creative with how I organize my hair products. I frequently change up how I store my hair products in my small space. This helps keep me in tune with what I’m using as well as sparking ideas for managing the space.
