He asked. You said ‘Yes’! Post the engagement party, it finally dawns…there’s barely six months left! With much of your time spent juggling between salon appointments, outfit fittings and trips to the dermatologist, there’s one thing you completely forgot about: your hair!
Well, luckily for you, we’ve scoured high and low to get a hold of the ultimate bridal hairstyle prep routine. Here’s how it goes… ‘cause after all, it’s a crown you’ll never take off!
6 Months Before…
To look and feel your best on your wedding day, it’s vital to start prepping from the inside out. Following a well-balanced diet with wholesome lean protein and leafy green vegetable will guarantee lustrous tresses. Replace that midday cookie or chips with fresh fruit, nuts and seeds. Experts believe a Vitamin B rich diet will light up the dullest locks (Did you know dull hair is actually a symptom of a Vitamin B
deficiency?). For good measure add supplements like GNC Women’s Ultra Nourish Hair (120 Tablets).
3 Months Before…
It’s now time for the much-awaited hair trial. Salon experts recommend the first session at least three months before the wedding. Browse the internet for the most alluring bridal hairstyles that are currently trending or simply visit a trusted professional. Carry these visuals to your scheduled date, be it the form of a Pinterest Board or Facebook Album for simple access. Additionally, any head gear, embellishments and bridal attire must be photographed or taken with you to experiment, well in advance. Go for Joker & Witch Gold plated metal leaves hair clip.
1 Months Before…
There’s just four weeks left and its best to get coloring at this stage. Go for a darker mane that accents your outfit with lighter highlights in two or three tones to add depth and volume to your luscious locks. Speak to your hairstylist on the best cut to show off your bejewelled neckline and complement your face shape. Trim split ends and unwanted wispies too. While you’re in the hands of a trusted coiffeur, splurge on an ultra-hydrating, deep conditioning hair masque too to regain lost moisture and stimulate hair growth from follicles. Products such as Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque, Toni & Guy Nourish: Reconstruction Mask or L’Oreal Professionnel Absolut Repair Lipidium Masque work wonders even at home.
1 Day Before…
The night before the big day try an at-home treatment with your favourite conditioner. For an extra glossy finish infuse the home-made masque of mashed avocado, egg yolk with Arganic by Aryanveda 100% Organic Moroccan Argan Hair Oil. Draw a hot bath, scatter some rose petals or essential oils like Nykaa Naturals Lavender Essential Oil and relax. De-stress with soothing gentle music and maybe a glass of wine! Apply some Pantene Pro V Oil Replacement on your tresses for extra nourishment without the cons of oil application.
