$$ in 2012

For the past two years, I attempted to record all hair related expenditures.

This year, I’ve set a new budget and aim to do a better job keeping track of my expenditures.

For 2012, I am budgeting $1,050. 
*$900 for re-tightenings (guesstimating 8 at approx. $100/session ($35/hr for 2- 3 hours) + $10 tip)
* + about $50 for misc hair purchases
* + about $100 for styling/coloring for special occasions or maintenance– I’ve always been fond of jet black locs!)

Here goes…

  • $27.95 — Sisterlocks Starter Shampoo + Sisterlocks Fresh Mist Spray (Dry Scalp/Dandruff) – Jan 4
  • $6 — 3 spray bottoles from CVS (for diluting shampoo, witch hazel spritz, and ACV spritz) – Jan 6
  • $15.39 — Witch Hazel ($9.49) and Rosemary Oil ($4.99) – Jan 6

(wow! $49.34 in the first week of January… ha, there goes the $50 I budgeted for miscellaneous hair purchases…)

  2. OMG, I can only dream about my hair being tightened in less than 8 hours. I have had 2 different consultants and they both seem to be on the same schedule….hum, wondering if yet another consultant can tighten me faster?
