Save Around $400 Per Year by Doing Your Own Hair Coloring

It’s a simple dollars and cents equation really. An average color job at a salon is going to run you around $50-$100, an in-home color will put you closer to $35. Still, is it really necessary? The one area where I won’t skimp is highlighting because let’s face it I’m just not that way inclined and nor is Hubs. You see I bring Hubby into it because bless him, every month I rope him in to cover the grey, spruce my hair up! It takes us around 45 minutes total and in the end I’ve spent around $8 and saved around $20-$50! Multiply that by 12 and you can save $240-$600 per year! Here’s how:

Firstly I pick a color that’s not too cheap and not too expensive. I haven’t found one that I love yet but I know that you get what you pay for and if you put a $2 dye on your head you’ll get $2 results. My faves are around $7.

Secondly, spend a little time working out what colour you really want and then keep the top of the package so you don’t forget next time!

Thirdly, there’s a good reason why people use old towels and old clothes when doing it at home. I’m just sayin!
