For most brides, picking the right hairstyle for their big day is high on the list of priorities. Whether you want an elegant updo, long cascading curls or something in between- having healthy, shiny hair is crucial to completing the overall look. Here are our tips for prepping your luxurious locks for the big day.
Use a Deep Conditioning Treatment
In the months leading up to your wedding day, use a deep conditioning treatment with a high concentration of healing peptides like glo therapeutics Intense Recovery Conditioning Mask. This luxurious and effective mask contains clover which supports the hair follicle and helps prevent breakage. It’s the ideal treatment to use once a week (maybe while de-stressing from wedding planning in a bubble bath?).
Eat a Balanced Diet
Many brides diet in the months before their wedding which can deprive their hair of the essential nutrients it needs to look healthy and vibrant. Instead of going on a crash diet, focus on whole foods that will give your body the nutrients it needs such as salmon, walnuts, and spinach. These foods are high in protein which is what your hair needs to remain healthy. Salmon and walnuts also contain omega-3 fats which help keep your hair hydrated.
Bye Bye Blowouts
In the months leading up to your nuptials try to avoid damaging your hair with hot styling tools and frequent blowouts . When we use heated styling tools like blow dryers, curling irons and flat irons we are drying out our hair which can lead to damage and split ends. If you can’t say no to blowouts then be sure to use a heat protecting product such as Extreme Heat Protecting Serum.
Keep It Cool
Avoid rinsing your hair with hot water which can cause hair to appear weak and limp. Instead, rinse with lukewarm water and, if you can handle it, do one final rinse with cold water to seal the cuticle. This will leave you hair looking healthy, shiny and soft.
