Wigs can save you big time. Not just on those bad hair days but also when you need to save money. While a good wig can be pricey, it will serve you for a while if you get a quality one. That way, you don’t have to go to the salon every month. Get several wigs and rotate them throughout the week.

2. Human hair weave

What if wigs are not your style? Then maybe you can try out a human hair weave. That way, you can wash it after use and keep it to reuse in future.

3. Learn DIYs

It’s also cheaper to blow-dry your hair at home if you live with someone who knows how to do it. At the salon, you will be charged for labour and electricity bill while you won’t incur labour expenses at home.

6. Invest in your own hair care products

Instead of going to the salon for your hair to be treated, buy your own treatment and do it at the comfort of your house. If it’s hair dye, buy yours then go to the salon because you will pay more if the stylist uses their own products.

7. Avoid going to high-end salons
