In order not to spend extra money, keep in mind: these five tips can be safely ignored!
1. You don’t need highlights as often.
Most stylists believe that every time you dye your roots (unless you change the tone in general) you need to re-lighten the strands. This is not true! A competent colorist will simply make a new recipe for mixing tones and apply a darker shade to the roots, stretching it along the length, and protonate the already clarified strands with another composition. If every time you dye all your hair in one tone, and then do highlighting again (shatush, balayage, ombre) – think about the qualifications of the master!
2. You don’t need recovery treatments
Often, before coloring, stylists-colorists say that the hair is terribly depleted, and before dyeing, they need to be restored. If you yourself do not think that your hair feels bad (and who better than you to know this?), Feel free to refuse. High-quality paints take care of your hair on their own, and if you want restorative procedures, do them yourself at home by applying special masks or oils.
3. You don’t have to buy all of the same brand
Invest in a good shampoo. And you can safely save on balm, mask, styling products. It is the process of high-quality cleansing without overdrying the hair that is really important, and emollients from more budget brands work just as well as expensive ones.
4. You don’t have to cut your hair once a month.
It is a myth that hair grows faster with frequent haircuts. Hair, as you know, grows from the root, and this very root has no idea what happens to the ends of the hair there. If the hair does not split, and the shape of the haircut suits you, there is no reason to cut the ends.
5. You don’t have to wash your hair every day.
Despite the fact that shampoos say “suitable for daily use,” the only reason to wash your hair daily is if your hair gets dirty and loses its look quickly. It’s clear that if you wash your hair daily (especially long ones), the shampoo will run out faster, you will go for a new one, and it’s obvious who wins here. Thin, curly, dry, colored hair is optimally washed every other day or every three days.
