According to this infographic, being a woman isn’t cheap, but growing out gray hair after coloring can equate to big savings. Anne Kreamer, the author of “Going Gray,” estimated that she spent about $65,000 on hair color over a 25-year period. And according to a recent survey on our Facebook page, by growing out gray hair and ditching the dye, our readers save anywhere from $700 – $1200 a year. Just think of what you could do with all that hard earned money!
Here are a few things that could put $1000 to good use:
Start up cost for a business
A family vacation
A wardrobe makeover
A living or family room upgrade
A new laptop
Eight to ten pairs of shoes
Eight to ten manicures and pedis
10-15 hours of massage
A one to two year gym membership
A donation to your favorite charity
Let us know what you would do with money saved from ditching the dye!
