Hair care can really bust your budget, but having your hair looking busted is NOT an option. In order to look polished and professional, your crowning glory must be on point. However, hiring a quality stylist and buying quality hair products can cost a grip. But fear not! Even if you don’t have Oprah money (or Andre), you can still have your relaxed or natural hair bouncin’ and behaving. Here are some tips to save some gwap on hair care when you are ballin’ on a budget.
Buy Products Online
If you don’t want to go the do-it-yourself route or are attached to a certain brand, shop around online to find the best prices. Sites like Amazon.com and Hairsisters.com often have deep discounts on your favorite products.
You Tube Your Do
Ever wanted to learn how to wrap your hair properly or twist your fro into an updo? Skip the hairdresser and look no further than YouTube. Sistas who are skilled in the art of hair care have posted thousands of videos giving instruction how on to do everything from braid to flat iron. If you are skilled at doing your own hair, you can learn new techniques free and get great styling advice without stepping foot into a salon.
Get the Hookup
Doing your own hair is the cheapest way to go, but what if you suck at doing your hair (as I do)? What is a baller on a budget to do? Simple: get the hookup. Most girls have a friend who may not be a professional stylist, but is insanely good at doing her own healthy tresses. Save money by asking your girl to do your hair for you. So that she doesn’t get annoyed with your repeated requests, offer her some kind of compensation. Bring her a bottle of wine, buy her some hair products, or take her out to lunch in exchange for her services.
Go on a Week Day
If you want to go the salon route, find out if there are days of the week when services are discounted. Many salons offer lower prices to clients who come in during the lower-traffic days of the work week.
