I know that a lot of you come here for the hairstyles & beauty tips. And I really love to share them!
The thing is, I’m no stylist. I haven’t gone to school or practiced professionally. I just really enjoy it. And I want to encourage you that it is possible to put on makeup, look cute & have great hair!
And like most of you, I am always on the search for the best products for my hair. Here’s the catch. I do not like to spend a lot of money on them. I want them to work without paying $20 a pop just for shampoo. Can I get an amen? I suppose if I had $20 a pop kind of money it wouldn’t be so bad, but in reality, why pay that kind of money when you get can the real deal for some really great prices.
Enter Vidal Sassoon Pro Series.
Please & thank you. I know what you’re thinking – “That stuff’s not cheap, it’s up there with the rest of the expensive ones!” I know, I thought the same thing! In fact, in some recent focus groups, it was routinely assumed to be twice as expensive as it actually is. In fact, I was just sitting here talking to my cousin & husband and they both said “I thought that was expensive!”
I am all about looking good and paying less for it. It’s like my mantra. Because when I have to feed two little monsters and one big one, sometimes expensive salon products is not a high priority on my list.
They also have hair color. If you’ve read here for a little bit of time, you know that I color my hair myself. Once again, why pay the big bucks when you can do it yourself at home? Don’t think you can do it yourself? Well, teach your husband! (sorry husbands…)
I like doing it myself because I can choose my color myself, and most of the time I mix two of the same product to get what I want. I can do it in the comfort of my own home, and instead of paying upwards of $70 every 6-8 weeks, I pay closer to $15. Tell that to your husbands, they might not mind as much!
Here are the two colors I used this time. I like to mix the darkest brown I can find with the darkest vibrant red. It creates a deep brown/red color that’s perfect for me.
Or wait, I just thought of a great idea! Have a hair coloring party! Invite some girlfriends over with their hair color of choice and you can all color each other’s hair! (Phew, there you go husbands, got ya off the hook!) And for your hair stylin’ party, everyone can download & use these coupons, saving money on some already inexpensive brands!
I’m totally gonna do that some time. Genius.
Here is my hair before & after – what do you think?
You’ll notice the roots in the first picture… yuck. And you can see how it has lightened a lot. I love the deep brownish red color!
Now you know you can grab it at your local Kroger’s brand store while you’re picking up your groceries! My kind of product, I’m telling ya.
What are your go-to products that give you salon quality?
Great hair doesn’t have to cost a fortune. At Kroger, you can achieve salon-inspired results, brilliantly priced, when you purchased new Vidal Sassoon Pro Series hair products. Download coupons for the already affordable products, now through March 2. Happy shopping (and shampooing)!
