Kill the Dye
Buy an at-home haircolor kit instead of heading to the salon to get your hair dyed, and save $1,500 or more per year.
Not only will you save gas driving to the salon—assuming you buy your haircolor kit when you're already at the drug store—but most salons use chemically laden hair dyes that are potentially harmful to human health. One recent study reported that women who used permanent hair dye were twice as likely to contract bladder cancer as those who didn't color. When you do it yourself, you have the option of purchasing a haircolor kit made with plant-based, nontoxic ingredients.
