How to cater for perfect hair with the rising cost of living
How to cater for perfect hair with the rising cost of living! We’ve all heard about it… and probably too often! We’ve all been affected in some way or another. Probably one of the most talked about subjects at the moment is the cost of living. Adulting sucks. Trying to stretch the budget as much as possible without compromising a custom lifestyle is challenging.
Funnily enough, apparently self-care is one of the lowest luxury impacts of the rising cost of living. While we all love to take care of ourselves, sometimes the budget feels heavy. We have a few options to help you manage your budget and maintain your look!
Firstly, if you’re working within a budget - let us know. We understand the economy is changing, and prices are increasing. We will do our very best to provide you with some affordable options to achieve and manage your desired look. Here are some tips on how to stretch your hair budget! Touch-ups Opting for touch ups, like a half head of foils over a full head can definitely break up the expense. A great option if you’re stretched is to opt for this every second visit.
Lived in blonde & balayage We (obviously) specialise in balayage. There are a few advantages of rocking a lived in blonde or balayage style, other than the natural look. It is:
Low-maintenance: Lived in blonde & balayage is a low-maintenance hair colour that can last for several months before needing a touch-up. This is because the lightener is applied to the hair in a way that creates a gradual blend, so there are no harsh lines or demarcations when you get regrowth. Versatile: Lived in blonde & balayage colours can be customised to suit any hair colour or style. It can be used to create a variety of looks, from subtle highlights to dramatic colour transformations. Flattering: Lived in blonde & balayage can be flattering on all hair types and colours. It can help to add dimension and depth to the hair, making it look fuller and more voluminous. Healthy for your hair: Lived in blonde & balayage colours are a less damaging hair-colouring technique than traditional foil highlights. This is because the lightener is applied to the hair in a more gentle way, which minimises the amount of damage to the hair cuticles. Everyday maintenance
Washing your hair less often can prolong your colour. Additionally, washing it hair too often can strip the natural oils from your hair, making it dry and brittle. Instead of washing every 2-3 days, try to stretch it to 3-5 days. If it’s feeling really oily, using a dry shampoo can remove oil and dirt from your hair, giving it a fresh, clean look without having to wash it. If you are using dry shampoo over time can create a build up, make sure that doesn’t happen, when you do wash it do two clarifying shampoos to ensure you remove any product build up.
Products Keeping blonde toned and looking fresh does require upkeep. If you’re unable to visit us as regularly, consider using BlondMe Cool Mask.
