Five cash-saving tips to go longer without a trip to hairdresser’s

NEED to trim the cost of your haircut?

A trip to a gent’s barber’s will likely cost around £15, while an appointment at a hairdresser’s will come in at a whole load more.

Five cash-saving tips to go longer without a trip to hairdresser’s

But you can cut the price of getting your locks done, and go longer between visits with these tricks . . . 

REPAIR YOUR HAIR: Double-shampooing should keep hair cleaner for longer, which means less damage from heat-styling and drying, according to haircare brand Living Proof.

The first shampoo should get rid of the dirt and product build-up that is attatched to your hair, while the second one will deep-clean the roots and scalp.

TRY A SNEAKY CHEAT: Top hairdresser Samantha Cusick loves using dry shampoo to extend the time between washes.

She says: “It adds volume and banishes grease, instead of washing it yet another time.”

You can get Batiste Clean & Classic Original Dry Shampoo for £2 instead of £3 at Asda right now.

SLEEP AND TREAT: Stop hair breaking while you sleep, by using a silk or satin pillowcase.

Marks & Spencer sells a silk pillowcase for £29.50 but the Kitsch satin one is £15 at boots.com and claims to reduce breakage, and helps banish frizz.



It’s also said to be good at helping your skin to maintain moisture, so it’s just what you need to hand during the cold winter months.

SWAP THE STYLIST: If money is tight, hairdresser Luke Ormsby (lukeormsbyhair.com) advises talking to your usual stylist to see what they can suggest to help.

He says: “For anyone struggling, I suggest my customers talk to me openly.

“For example, if you just need a root touch-up or trim, you could see a junior hairdresser and go back to your usual stylist next time.”

DO IT YOURSELF: While it might not be wise to attempt a DIY drastic restyle, there are a lot of tutorials on YouTube to help if you just need a trim.
