What your Hairstylist May or May NOT tell you:
Going to the hairstylist can be a very luxurious experience. The scalp massages at the shampoo bowls, the deep conditioning treatments and the overall, polished finished look can make you look and feel like a million bucks. Although your hair stylist can be a miracle worker in a pinch, there are some things you can do to trim down your big bill at checkout time. These are the things your hairstylist may or may NOT tell you:
Skip the Expensive Deep Conditioner-Who’s to say that you can’t deep condition at home the night before? Sleep in your deep conditioner overnight before your next hair appointment. Then when you head to the shampoo bowl at the salon, a shampoo and a regular, MOISTURIZING conditioner will be just fine. Skipping out on the DC treatment can save you upwards of $50…sometimes more.
Use Henna instead of Traditional Hair Color-Again, you can do this at home at a fraction of the cost. Hennas can give you rich,deep hues of chestnuts, reds and indigos. Another plus, it’s great for the overall condition of your hair. Henna spares your hair from the harsh chemicals and bleach found in salon color. I have been using henna in my hair for months and my hair stylist raves about the color every time she sees me.
The Cheap Products will work just fine-It’s tempting to want to buy the rich, expensive shampoos and conditioners in the glass cases at your salon. You know the kind that can cost you 40 or 50 bucks for just one bottle! Usually, the tried and true less expensive brands at your local drug store will work just fine, thank you. Or, try this if you want to stretch the life of your expensive favorite conditioner. Mix in a little of the cheapo brand to save yourself a little cash!
