How are all of you? I know its been ages since I wrote an article on mommyswall and I have been getting requests to start writing. So keeping up to my promise, I am planning to write more often. As some of you know I am a working mother now and I hardly get time to visit the salon. And I have found new tricks to save time and money by avoiding the salon totally.
So let me get to history, I used to regularly visit the salon for facials, waxing, hairspas, manicure, pedicure, haircuts, threading etc etc (Im guessing that I used to spend around 5K per month) So once I started working I saw the mad rush at salons during weekends and sadly that was my free time too. So I decided to bring the salon home.
I still visit the salon for eyebrow threading and haircuts only… And now I may even stop eyebrows as Veet has a promising eyebrow shaper. So here are some ways you can totally avoid the salon and use your money wisely.
I use an epilator by Braun. And it does not hurt the way it has been portrayed online. It works perfectly and you can use it as often as you can.
Buy a kit and keep it handy in a pouch and use it every alternate Sundays. There is no better person who can clean your feet that yourself. You can even add scrubs and body packs to this kit.
Invest in a good shampoo and conditioner, I use the Loreal professional shampoo. It is much better than spending so much at the salon. Oil your hair before a bath and use good serums to remove frizz. Also rinse your hair with Apple cider vinegar after bath to make your hair smooth and shiny.
You can use a good massage cream followed by steam, a scrub and pack. All these things are easily available and best part is that you can change your product as and when you like. It works out to be much cheaper than facials. Its even better if you use natural ingredients from your kitchen.
Ensure that you dont use soap on your face. Use a good facewash, I currently use the tea tree cleanser from Bodyshop. Use a night cream before sleep, Im a big fan of Patanjali Aleo vera gel and I think its better than any moisturizer in the world.
