Men’s Hair Hacks: How to Spend Less Money On Your Hair
It’s no secret that taking good care of your hair can sometimes be expensive. Of course, nobody wants to sacrifice their looks for the sake of saving a buck. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can spend less money on your hair while still keeping up with it.
Avoid Over-the-Counter Products That Claim to Prevent Hair Loss
When it comes to hair, as with many other things, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If there’s a new product someone’s trying to sell you or that’s plastered everywhere you go lately making amazing promises, it’s probably not going to be worth the price. Unless you know real people on a talking level for whom such a product has worked, you will be better off avoiding it. Be careful about trying different over-the-counter solutions as some of them may do more harm than good to your hair. With about 35 million people in the United States endure a degree of baldness and hair loss or another, you’re far from being the only one, so don’t let desperation drive you to try things you would not have tried under different circumstances. You will also be able to save money if you don’t spend it on a hundred different products that don’t work.
Avoid Too Much Sun
The sun is not only terrible for the skin, but its harmful UV rays can also cause havoc on your hair. Shop for products that will help protect your hair from these rays and apply these products religiously. Doing this will help you maintain great hair for a long time to come. While you can also use hats and caps, be careful not to overdo it because these can apply a lot of pressure on your hairline. They may pull on the sides of your hair as well and make you develop more problems than you were trying to avoid in the first place, and you will end up spending more money trying to reverse them.
Learn How to Trim Your Own Sides
With around 1.8 billion websites operating throughout the world at the same time each day, there is a good chance that you can learn how to trim your own sides yourself from the Internet alone. Look through enough tutorials to build your skill and then do some practice. While it will probably be a bit hard at the beginning, you will get the hang of it soon enough, becoming an expert at trimming your own hair. This will help you develop some important skills and also save the money you would spend going to get your sides trimmed by a barber regularly.
Buy an Energy-Efficient Hairdryer
Make sure that you’re using energy-efficient hair products. If upgrading your HVAC unit can improve your energy use by 50%, imagine what upgrading your hair products would do. Shop around for good dryers and get references from friends and family based on what works for them. While cheap is often expensive, this does not mean that the most high-end dryer you can find will automatically be the best. Read product reviews until you find a hairdryer that has proven itself to many people, and when you buy it, you will be sure you’ve made a good investment.
The tips outlined above should help you keep a gorgeous head of hair on a budget. Although it may seem like an uphill task right now, you will find it easy to put these things into practice after doing them for a while, so start today and it will get easier.
