High quality hair products do not come cheap. However, the perfect hair style is nearly impossible without good hair products. I want to let you in on some secrets for making the most of your hair products, and in the end saving tons of money.
Never use hair products on soaking wet hair. Always be sure to allow your hair to dry to the point where it just feels damp. Then apply your best hair products. When you apply hair products to soaking wet hair, the product is then diluted and less effective. By waiting to apply the product on damp hair, you allow your product to work properly. As a result, you will need to use less of your product to achieve the same results. In the long run, this will allow your products to last longer, work more effectively and save you money.
Invest in high quality products. When it comes to buying hair products, I have learned that in the long run it actually saves me money when I invest in the more effective, but more expensive products. This is because you can use less of these products to get the same or even better results as compared to their cheaper counterparts. In the end, these products will last you a good 3-4 times longer.
Wash your hair less. Try washing your hair only every two or three days. Not only does this save you money on hair products but it is actually good for your hair as well. Washing your hair every day strips your hair of its natural oils, leaving you with dried out and damaged locks.
Learn to embrace dry shampoo. Dry shampoo is a miracle worker when it comes to saving both time and money on hair styling. A high quality dry shampoo will allow you to not only wash less, but it will also give your hair great texture and volume as well. The best part is, second day hair is much easier to style and it saves you time. Dry shampoo may even be the only product that you need to use on your second day hair. For the best results, apply a little dry shampoo into your roots before going to bed. This keeps your hair clean and ready to go in the morning.
Prime your hair before styling it. One of my favorite priming hair products is Living Proof’s Prime Style Extender. This primer helps to repel dirt and oil, keeping your hair nice and clean. Also, this primer helps you to extend your style up to two times longer. The primer in general helps to create the perfect base for the layering of other products. It is perfect because it works for any kind of hair type or style.
Find the perfect multitasking hair product for your hair. The perfect multitasking product should be able to do the work of multiple products all in one. This makes your styling routine simple and it saves you money. Perfect examples of some great multitasking products are Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment and Alterna Haircare’s Caviar CC Cream for Hair 10-in-1 Complete Correction.
Living Proof’s styling treatment provides volume, smoothness, conditioning, strength, and polish.
Alterna’s CC cream provides moisture, shine, smoothness, softness, anti-breakage, heat protection, light hold, UV protection, manageability, and strength.
