Save money by prolonging salon visits
Hold on to Hair Color
To lock in color, resist washing your hair for 72 hours after a dark dye, says colorist Eva Scrivo. A few weeks later, a clear gloss will restore shine and vibrancy. Try Clairol Shine Happy or Frédéric Fekkai Salon Glaze (hqhair or spacenk - you get 4% cashback when purchasing from hqhair via the paypal website).
Nick-Proof Your Nails
Request an extra coat of color along nail tips, where the wear is worst. Then seal nails with a clear top coat twice a week, says manicurist Jin Soon Choi. Ask if your manicurist can get you a bottle of the polish that she uses on you, so you can deal with any chips if neccessary.
Prolong a Blowdry
At the salon, ask for less product or just product on the lengths of hair, as this will leave you with a cleaner scalp. After a few days, work dry shampoo into the hairline and scalp to extend the life of your style.
