Unless you are one of those super duper lucky ladies who has naturally perfect hair, you’ll want to read and take action on this post.
When your hair feels great, so do you. And you deserve to feel great on your wedding day. You can find yourself the perfect dress, shoes and jewellery – but if your hair is not properly prepared before you hand it over to your hairdresser, you’ll regret it.
And you don’t want to just wait until a few weeks before the big day to start treating it right. You want to be caring for it weeks, if not months in advance. Better still, you’ll get yourself into a great habit of caring for your hair with the love it deserves. Every day can be a good hair day – well most anyway.
Deep Condition It Once A Week
No matter what else you do, get into the habit of treating your locks to a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week. You can buy top notch conditioner from your hair dressers or the high street. Or you can go completely natural and make your own at home. Olive oil and honey mixed together is a good start. Check here for more home conditioning treatments.
Eat The Right Foods
I expect you’ll be heading down the road of healthy eating anyway. You’ve got a wedding dress to squeeze into right? If you can try and eat and drink the most clean and unprocessed foods you can, your hair will thank you for it with a mane of glossy locks you’ll be proud of. Try and drink loads of water, eat avocadoes, oily fish and a bucket load of vegetables.
Get Regular With The Hairdresser
If you’re anything like me you will try your best to stretch out visits to the hair dressers for as long as possible. I really can’t stand (or sit?!) going – why do all hairdresser mirrors have to make you look 15 years older? Or is that just moi? No matter what your hang ups are, get regular with your visits. Get those split ends trimmed off and indulge in a little pamper time.
Turn The Heat Down
Yep, we sure do love heating up our hair. Hairdryers, straighteners, curlers…you name it, we use it. I’m not saying to stop using them – I really couldn’t leave my hair to it’s own devices, not without severely regretting it anyway! Just try and keep the heat low, minimise how often you use heat appliances, and most of all, use a heat protectant. Something like a leave in spray or some serum.
If you get in to the habit of following these tips your hair will really thank you on the big day with a hair style to be proud and confident of 🙂
