Proper hair care directly affects their appearance. Even if you are a happy owner of manageable hair and do not consider it necessary to resort to expensive procedures in salons, choosing the right products for home care is essential. Thus, every woman faces hair care expenses every month.

The exact amount a woman spends on hair care per month depends on many factors. Your hair type, its length, how damaged it is, whether it has been dyed or chemically treated, what hair products you use, and even where you live play a role. While shampoo, conditioner, and hair masks are enough for some women, the other ones are forced to splurge on hair oils, heat protectants, and even styling products.

However, even obedient hair needs some special home care. Your hair appearance depends on what products you use. For example, if the shampoo doesn't rinse the scalp well, hair will quickly become dirty and lose its well-groomed appearance. At the same time, you should not overdry the hair and look for a product that doesn't irritate.

Since the cost of your care product, in addition to the cost of raw materials, includes many other components, for example, advertising costs, packaging, and even labor costs, you should not expect much from a cheap product. If you want to see the difference, you’d better choose some products from professional lines according to your hair type. Although they are usually not cheap, they have economic consumption due to concentration. That is why in some cases, the cost of one good care product (which you will use for more than one month) can be equated to the cost of your regular monthly care.

On average, basic hair care consists of the following elements:

  • Shampoo (about $20). Choose a shampoo according to your hair type. Use special product lines if you have dyed or curly hair. Shampoo should cleanse the scalp gently, so make sure that there are no aggressive components in the composition.
  • Conditioner (about $20). Use it every time after washing your hair. Thanks to this, the hair will be easier to comb. They will also look smooth and shiny.
  • Hair Mask (about $20). Use it once a week to help your hair recover from a hairdryer exposure, temperature changes, and other stressful situations.
  • Heat Protectant (about $10). Apply it every time before using a hairdryer, styler, or curling iron. It will prevent evaporation of moisture from the hair surface.
  • Hair Serum (about $30). Hair serum will help you restore the locks’ structure and have a beneficial effect on dull ends.
  • Styling Gel or Hair Foam (about $7). These styling products will help you in making any hairstyle or creating more volume in your hair.
  • Dry Shampoo (about $10). It is an indispensable product if you have no time to wash and dry your hair, but it must look perfect. But you should remember that dry shampoo does not replace regular shampoo.

The average total cost of hair treatments is about $117. However, most of these products will last you several months. You should also remember to visit a hairstylist if needed. According to a new survey, women spend about $80 per month on hair care.

About That’s Foxy

I may not be the most technical minded person when it comes to curling irons, but I have tried and researched enough irons to call myself an expert in usability.

Until now, the lack of personal experience and honest reviews is what always bothered me when looking for a new iron. So, I decided to fill the gap myself.
I hope you will find all the information you need, and if I can help you save a penny or two, I will.
That's Foxy!
