No longer able to afford those every two week appointments for nails, have a manicure instead of your usual fill, try to have a manicure once a month or ask a friend to do them in fact it would do both of you some good to do each others nails, it will save some money and you will be still be able to treat yourself with a service, those high end polishes can be purchased at one of those beauty supply shops watch for discounts, Its' called look good-feel good

It can be really frustrating to try new hairstyles on dry, damaged hair. More often then not the looks don't turn out the way we want them to. If your'e on a budget and cant afford to go to a salon for a deep conditioning treatment or buy some of the higher end products, an affordable and natural hair treatment could already be in your kitchen cabinet! Olive oil can be used once a week (depending on your hair routine or how damaged your hair is). Rub it in dry hair, focusing on ends, and leave on 30 min or overnight. You can also use it for a hot oil treatment by using a shower cap or plastic sack and your blow dryer. Just be sure to wash it out very thoroughly. It will make your hair shiny and help retain moisture. I also use a very small amount (half the size of a dime on my med/long hair) as a shine serum after styling.
