One of my favorite freebies to receive in the mail are free shampoo samples and other free beauty samples. These little packets of shampoo, conditioner, and sometimes a styling product, let me try out shampoos before I dive in and purchase a big bottle.
An added bonus is that a lot of the times these free shampoo samples come with coupons that can really help me save money on the big bottles.
I also love to use free shampoo samples when I travel. They take up almost no room in my suitcase and they're easy to use and toss when I'm done with them. I've got quite a stock pile of free shampoo samples and when I have guests they never have to worry if they forgot their shampoo.
