Shampoo Like a Pro
Almost all of us are guilty of using too much shampoo. By learning to properly shampoo your hair, you can extend the life of your shampoo by more than 50 percent.
A Dab'll Do
If you find yourself needing a lot of conditioner to soften or detangle your hair, perhaps you're not using the right conditioner. A small amount of conditioner (proportionate for the amount of hair you have) should be enough to get the job done. Rather than using more conditioner, try a formula with more moisture power or add a deep conditioner to your routine once or twice a month.
Skip a Day
Shampooing everyday isn't necessary for healthy shiny hair, in fact, by skipping a day (or two) you'll cut your shampoo/conditioner budget in half, and increase the health of your hair.
Try making your chemical services economically friendly by choosing color and texture services that require less maintenance, and you'll be able to extend the life of your chemical services by an additional 2-4 weeks. One or two less chemical services per year can add up to big bucks.
To keep maintenance low, try keeping your hair color within two to three shades of your natural color, that way it won't be as obvious when it grows out. Learn how to care for your color properly to help it last longer. How about a partial highlight instead of a full highlight? Ombre color is a perfect way to make a color service last months longer than a traditional foil highlight. If the budget gets really tight, find out when is it okay to color your own hair or how to grow your natural color out.
