I don't even know if I remember the real color of my hair. Back in the day, high school that is, we would put streaks in our hair with peroxide - I know there are some of you out there that did that too!. As a
My haircuts are one of the areas I don't scrimp on, however I will color my own hair instead of paying the salon to do it. It's actually quite easy and I probably save about $500 a year. For me the biggest advantage is I can do it when it's convenient for me and don't need to spend a lot of time in the stylist's chair.
Are you thinking about coloring your hair? If you are, here are some tips for first timers.
- Start with a non-permanent color, these should wash out in about 30 washings. Once you've determined the color move to a permanent color.
- Start with a color close to your natural color. You can always go more dramatic once you get the hang of it.
- Wear an old t-shirt or something that you don't mind ruining, this includes a towel.
- Rub some conditioner around your hairline (not in your hair), this will help you keep dye off your skin.
- Remember to use the conditioner they give you once a week, this will help keep your hair soft.
If you are wanting to experiment with color but don't want to fork over the big salon bucks I say go for it! As long as you start with a non-permanent it will wash out eventually :)
