Air Conditioning doesn't work

(1999 Chevrolet Cavalier)
I have had the air conditioner flushed and they added the dye and the freon that they added lasted 3 days. After that, I have added more freon at least twice and it never lasts. I have added the freon with the stop leak in it (R13 whaever)recently again and it didn't last even a day. I am going to take it to a shop but I want to know what I should tell them as they often try and over charge a female. Could this be a hose that is being overlooked? HELP....Thanks.

The information you presented here is what you should provide the shop. Create a list with dates and what was performed on each date. Make sure the shop has the ability to check for a leak using the dye detector, and that they check the evaporator really good. (the evaporator is behind the dashboard and can be hard to diagnose if it is leaking) I would take it to the shop that added the dye. Good Luck!
