Looking for little ways to cut back? Slashing your salon visits in half can help you save a ton – and between appointments, you can keep up your look with these less-expensive products.
See even more at-home hair tips in our Maintain Your Hair At Home guide.
To cover grays in 10 minutes without visiting a stylist, try Clairol Nice ‘n Easy Perfect 10 ($14 at Drugstore.com). Once you’ve figured out your color, the pronged comb makes application a cinch.
For an even faster solution, ROUX Tween Time Instant Haircolor Touch-Up Stick ($7 at Amazon) is like concealer for your roots: swipe it on and go.
Between the two (and for about $20), you should be able to hold out a lot longer before giving in to a salon coloring.
