Drugstore Deals for the Recessionista: Hair Color

Posted By bectemp on Dec 6, 2008 at 5:48AM
  • Beckie: Hey, hon, new hair color?
  • Jamie: Why? Don't you like it? I do.
  • Beckie: I like it. I was just asking. It looks a bit frazzled. I mean that in the nicest way possible.
  • Jamie: Well, the (#@*#& hair extensions pulled my real hair out.
  • Beckie: OMG! Weren't those free? You wrote a blog post about them.
  • Jamie: Well, BLOG THIS: Be very careful about the process used in applying extensions.
  • Beckie: Your hair color --
  • Jamie: -- is L'Oreal Feria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Colour.
  • Beckie: -- looks good. Seriously.
  • Jamie: Thanks.
  • Beckie: If you get your hair dyed 6 to 12 times a year at a salon, you could save $400 to $2,000 or more by doing it at home.
  • Jamie: Just doing what I have to do, since I don't have a lot of excess cash.
  • Beckie: Dad is going to be so proud to hear that you are saving money on hair care.
  • Jamie: Yeah, "Mr. Penny-Saved-Is-A-Penny-Earned"!
  • Beckie: Did you know that makers of the major drugstore color lines also make the hair-coloring products used by salons?
  • Jamie: Then why don't you color your own hair at home? Dad would be so proud to hear that you are saving money on hair care. lol.
  • Beckie: Well, "My Kevin Q," is a salon genius. He can perform coloring techniques that would be impossible for me to dupe at home. Kevin Q uses an all over tint and then highlights and lowlights with foils. He is an artiste. lol
  • Jamie: Costs you lost of dollars for that "art," though.
  • Beckie: Time to change the subject.
  • Jamie: Mom, you will never be a recessionista. lol
