Is your wedding around the corner? Have you started taking care of your hair? You should start soon as hair has an important part in enhancing your personality. It is advised that you start a rigorous hair care routine 2 months before your big day.
Here are some hair care tips for brides-to-be!
1) Learn about your hair type
First of all, know about your hair type, whether it is straight, curly or wavy. Also, find out your skin type. This will help in planning out your hair care routine.
2) Wash your hair well
Cleaning your hair the right way is important to make sure that pollution particles and dust are not left on the scalp. If you have a normal to dry scalp, you need to wash your hair 2 times a week. For an oily scalp, it is advised that you wash more than 3 times a week. The most important thing is the hair-washing technique. Sometimes a wrong hair washing technique can lead to dry and frizzy hair.
Here’s the right way to wash your hair-
Rinse your hair with cool water first followed by lukewarm water. Apply shampoo and massage it into your scalp slowly. When there is enough lather, move downwards and wash the mid section and the tips of your hair. Remember, that you need to be gentle while massaging, not be in a hurry. The final step involves washing off the shampoo with cold water. You can then apply your favourite conditioner.
2) Go in for a hair trim
Visit the parlour and get your hair trimmed. This will get rid of split ends and at the same time help your hair to grow at a faster pace.
3) Styling tips
A bride-to-be should not use any styling tools as it would damage her hair and result in hair fall and split ends.
Say no to harsh chemicals. Use hair products that have less amount of chemicals. Silicone, parabens and alcohol tend to damage hair. Opt for natural hair care products.
4) Go in for hair spa and oiling
The high levels of pollution and inadequate diet makes your hair dull and lifeless. To bring back that shine, you need to visit the saloon for hair spa treatment at least 2 months before your wedding.
Oil your hair regularly to make it strong, shiny and healthy. Use coconut oil or olive oil for your hair. They help in softening and smoothening your hair along with providing nourishment.
