So, I have been trying to save money because of this whole recession, I have been a “natural blonde” for 15 years. I had some major up-keep every six weeks, if I didn’t want some serious rootage. If I wanted to just color the crown of my roots it took 3 hours and upwards of $100! That amount may or may not include gratuity depending on who the hair stylist was. I was sick of dealing with color fade, or the stylist not getting the color close to my roots.
I decided, enough is enough and I am going to take my hair color into my own hands. Now this was not an easy decision to come to. I have been highlighting my hair for so long that I had no idea what I would look like as a brunette. I called my friend who worked at a beauty supply store and she gave me some good advice. I needed to dye my hair red first, so the brown would have something to hold on to. So I went to the nearest beauty supply store near my house, and the girls working there are pretty knowledgeable. You can just ask them what would work best for you.
Golden red for $5.99
Light brown for $5.99
32 oz. volumizer on sale for $2.99
Plastic color applier $2.99
That is so much cheaper than what I was paying for to get my roots done, and it is definitely a lot less maintenance. I was able to do the colors myself but I won’t say it was the easy. I think it will get better with time. I am happy with the results and it is always nice to have a change. Besides, I am married now, and he has to say he likes it. I can always go back to blonde but it is nice to mix things up once in a while and save a lot of money in the process.
