Topic: 2oz Bottles for Diluting?

Would the 2oz shampoo bottles work for keeping your diluted shampoo in? Or would they be difficult to use for this purpose?

Do the tops screw off for filling? And then is the opening wide enough to easily get the shampoo in for diluting? Finally, is the opening for the shampoo to come out too large since it is designed for the concentrated shampoo, which would then make the diluted shampoo come out too quickly?

What type of bottle should I look for to use for the diluted shampoo?

Thanks!

I use the travel sized bottles for air travel you can buy at Target (or Walmart, but I don't like shopping there.)  I mix about half water and half shampoo.  I also buy organic essential oils and tea tree oil and add a few drops of them to my mixture, and my hair has been nothing short of beautiful and healthy.  I don't even need to condition.
I use rosemary, lavender, peppermint and tea tree oil every time.  Perfect.

How long does the shampoo keep after diluting?  Sometimes I have a little left over after washing my hair.  I hate to throw it out and waste it.   Will diluting with distilled water help it to last longer if I save it?

Distilled water does help.  It does last a fairly long time, but I don't have an exact amount of time.

I was told to use 6-8 ounces to dilute the shampoo and conditioners in. I end up using a jar and remove it from shower and put in cabinet until my next hair washing nomicons/smile

I just mix in a tiny bowl then pour onto hand/head. When making my own shampoos before that were also mixed in water I always refrigerated them if I didn't use it all at once, then warm up by placing the container in another bowl of hot water nomicons/grin I'll update on whether this works with MM if I ever have to do it. nomicons/smile
