How to Keep Your Haircut Looking Fresh Between Salon Visits


It's unofficially Kevin Mancuso week here on BellaSugar. We love the Creative Director of Nexxus because he's generous in sharing his tips. (Don't miss his advice on trimming your own bangs and maintaining your hair color on a budget.) Today, we tackle the quality-vs-quantity issue with regard to hair:

Is it better to get regular inexpensive cuts or to invest in a high-quality cut that doesn’t need to be touched up as much?

In my opinion, I think it is better to invest in a great hair cut up front and then maintain the style with high-performance products. In the long run, the quality of your hair and the shape will last much longer! Find a reliable person that’s in your budget and go for it.

Keep your hairstyle looking salon-fresh with high-performance products. FYI - “high-performance” products don’t always mean a “high price point.” There are tons of hair care products available at your drugstore that offer the same salon-quality results as an expensive alternative.

Here’s a great tip for keeping those ends in shape so you can stretch that cut a month longer. Wet your hair and before shampooing take a small amount of conditioner and apply to the tips of the hair. Next, continue with shampoo. The conditioner protects the hair from the sometimes dehydrating effects of shampoo.

Is more wisdom from Mr. Mancuso coming? You know it.
