Everyone has a hair stylist, we listen to them just as a child, it seems that they know all the things about hair and they are always right. But the truth is not! Here are 3 things about save money on your hair care and style.
1. If you have perfectly healthy, “normal” hair that looks lovely using the simple, lower-cost stuff, you don’t need to switch to the expensive bottle your stylist recommends. While salon-grade products can certainly have higher-quality or special ingredients, not everyone needs them.
2. If your stylist has told you never to buy your expensive shampoo at the grocery store because it’s “contaminated,” he or she is misinformed. You can get it for less there because, as always, big stores buy in bulk. Salon-brand manufacturers say they don’t sell to Wal-Mart, and there’s something wrong with the bottles you see there. In fact, the salon-brand manufacturers don’t sell to any stores. They sell to distributors, and those distributors then sell to salons. And to Wal-Mart. Technically, they’re not supposed to sell to Wal-Mart but they do. It’s called diverted product, and it’s the same stuff you find at your salon.
3. Deep-conditioning salon treatments can be heavenly. But there’s also something about doing it yourself for less money. The truth is, home remedies made from ingredients like avocado, olive oil and coconut oil condition hair wonderfully, and there’s even some evidence the latter two can make it stronger. So if the indulgence isn’t what’s drawing you to your stylist for expensive treatments (or products), consider looking in your kitchen pantry. The results can be just as fabulous.
