1. If you have successful past experience of coloring your hair, Save money by using box color, for touch ups, instead of going to the salon.

4. Look for 2 in 1 Hair Products (shampoo and conditioner, heat protectant and shine enhancer, etc.)
5. Use color extending shampoo and conditioner to prevent your color from fading quickly.
