For most women the most expensive outlay they have on their personal hygiene on a monthly basis is their visit to the hair salon, which doubles and triples if there are more than one female in the house. Although we all need to look our best and don’t want to look like renditions of Frankenstein there are ways to cut back on the high costs of your salon each month.
Less heat more natural – if you have a style that requires irons, curlers and hairdryers on a daily basis, rather ask your stylist to give you a style that will work without the heated items, heat damages the hair which means you need more visits to the salon, if you only using these items once a week you won’t need to visit the salon as often.
Risk a student – training schools allow people from the community to have their hair styled, coloured or trimmed by students for a fraction of the cost that a stylist charges. Just remember that if you are going to allow a student to touch your hair it might take a lot longer than your stylist as they have to check in with the instructor.
Fringe yourself – one of the best ways to save is to trim your own fringe, just remember that you need to keep the scissors upright and cut little bits at a time, also don’t cut it shorter than the stylist did.
DIY Dye – for slight changes in colour or to cover grey it is perfectly safe to use home dye, just remember that if you wanting a drastic change like from blonde to brunette or bleaching it is better to go to the salon.
Condition and care – while you are using shampoo that feels great it could be harsh on your hair so use conditioner as well, there are also home conditioning kits and shampoos which condition at the same time. Using products which add moisture to your hair will prolong the time it takes for your hair to look lifeless and dull and minimize the amount of visits you will need to the salon.
Although it is great to take time out for yourself and be pampered, it is cheaper to do a lot of it at home, that way you can save money and put more into paying debts or reaching your personal goals.
