I'm not a real fan of those who are all talk and no action, yet I feel I've become one of those people. Yeah, here I go again about the hair. I have to say to all my friends out there who gave me encouragement and told me my new doos look great, I appreciate that but unfortunately I can't say I agree. Right now my hair has strictly become a matter of practicality and I hate that.
Just for fun, let's break it down:
1. Cut and style $65. Since I like long hair I would likely do this about 4 times a year for a total of $260
2. Hair products. I saw a figure on the Internet that says the average woman spends $300 a year on products. Sadly that sounds accurate.
3. Color. Depending on the amount of color, how many different colors and/or amount of highlights prices can range dramatically. I would say I average about $95 a visit. Thanks to gray hair I also visit my coiffure every 6-7 weeks which is roughly 8.5 times year for a total of $807.50.
4. Speciality hair care. To me this is where my Keratin Treatments come in to play. Other speciality hair care could be updos, braids, conditioning treatments, etc. I get a deal on my Keratin treatments because my friend/stylist, the lovely Miss Erin, does it on the side for an average price of $250 a time, most salons charge upwards of $600 for this same treatment. For those who don't know, Keratin takes crazy curly hair like mine and makes it silky smooth and straight - way more manageable in the Florida humidity too! Plus, the brand Erin uses on me is free of those toxic chemicals like formaldehyde, unlike some brands. Luckily I only get Keratin once or twice a year for a total of $500.
