Mix a tub of cheap, generic petroleum jelly with a small amount of perfumed lotion to create a great smelling moisturizer and to stretch the life of the lotion.
Make your own spray-on conditioner by mixing 1 tablespoon of your favorite conditioner in a spray bottle filled with your favorite hair conditioner. Shake the bottle well before using. There is no need to rinse your hair after spraying.
