All those models and celebrities showing off their picture perfect hair can surely make a lot of women envious. Before you know it, you’ll be heading to the salon to get another treatment or procedure done. Because really, these shampoo commercials will make you believe that you will have beautiful waves and locks by simply shampooing your hair – but that rarely happens! You can only achieve the hair you want to rock if you exert extra effort for daily styling or if you go to the salon for a treatment.
However, salon treatments cost a lot of money. You’re lucky if you chance upon a discounted voucher from a deal website or a promotion that your local salon is offering. But more often than not, you will have to shell out a chunk of your savings just to get the treatment that you like. This could be anywhere from hair coloring to Keratin treatments to perming to straightening and more. The cost of the treatment is just one thing – you would have to tip the salon professional and her/his assistant. You have to pay for parking. You have to spend on gas for your car. And of course, the salon staff will even convince you to get a manicure and pedicure done while you’re there.
Now going to the salon is truly relaxing and fulfilling. A lot of women do this to reward themselves or simply to make them feel more beautiful. However, if you feel like you have been going to the salon way too many times already and you can feel the pain in your credit card bill or your hair has become way too damaged with all these numerous treatments, then you probably have to stop now. If you need a bit of help, here are some tips you can keep in mind.
Think of the money.
Yes, this is the number one thing you can keep in mind. So you need to get a hair moisturizing procedure done? Perhaps you want a new hair color? Visit your local pharmacy or check online stores on DIY boxes that you can use at home. This will easily save you so much money and you can still get your treatment!
Invest on hair styling tools instead.
Instead of damaging your hair with a permanent hair straightening procedure, invest in a good kind of flat iron instead. There are many types of hair flat irons and it is best to do your research to find one that can produce least damage to your hair. Don’t use the flat iron every day though – or any other hair tool that uses heat for styling. Allow your hair to rest every once in a while.
You are beautiful just the way you are.
If you’re all about being beautiful all the time that’s why you spend a lot of money on salon treatments, then you must realize how natural is more beautiful than being all made up most of the time. In fact, do you even realize that your hair only looks fabulous on the day you go to the salon? After you wash it, it looks pretty much the same as it was before so you better think twice and just realize that you are naturally beautiful – salon treatment or not
