Consider half of the wedding prep done if you have picked the “dress of your dreams” from the exclusive bridal lineup of Portia and Scarlett dresses and coordinated accessories with it!

However, amid the wedding chaos, there’s one thing that might not receive the desired attention: your hair!

Your skin gets all the pampering, but why ignore the hair?

Well, the wedding stress is real! Your hair can tend to have a breakout, be it hair thinning, dryness, dandruff, dullness, or hair fall!

So, it’s time to show some love to your hair! Here’s an ultimate fashion guide with all those haircare secrets to help you achieve those glossy, fabulous locks for D-day!

Pre-Wedding Prep

Getting Started: Investing in Good Hair Care Products

As you embark on your journey to the most beautiful chapter of your life, let’s take a dig at hair care. Firstly, know your hair type, whether it is straight, curly, wavy, or something in between, as different products cater to different textures.

Then, discover what your hair needs. Does it need a solution to treat frizz or dullness or a remedy for hair fall or dandruff-free voluminous hair? Pinpoint your hair’s main concerns, and look for products that address those issues.

Hair Nutrition and Hydration

Your hair will thank you for including the nourishment of fruits, vegetables, and proteins in the diet. Also, drinking plenty of water is essential to hydrate your hair and scalp from the inside out!

Pro Tip: Never use hot water to cleanse your hair! Always opt for lukewarm water!

Regular Hair Care Routine

Begin a hair care routine well in advance of your wedding day. A few steps that lead to happy, healthy hair are:

  • Oiling Magic:

Start with oiling. Depending on your hair problem, you can choose the essential oil, be it coconut, argan, or rosemary, to treat your concerns. Massage gently so that it absorbs the oil well and boosts blood circulation.

  • Gentle Cleansing:

As sulphates are harsh on your hair, invest in a good sulphate-free shampoo to maintain your hair’s natural oils.

  • Conditioner Love:

Apply conditioner from mid-length to ends and leave for about 2-3 minutes.

  • Serum Wonder:

Achieve that friz-free detangled hair in seconds by applying a small amount of hair serum to your hair length.

  • Choice of Hair Brush:

To avoid unnecessary breakage, use a wide-toothed comb or a brush with soft bristles to detangle your hair gently after hair wash.

  • Weekly Conditioning:

Once a week, treat your hair with a conditioning hair mask to hydrate, repair, and smoothen your tresses.

Pro Tip: It may sound impossible, but yes, you have to try minimizing touching your hair after every two seconds!

Timely Trimming

Get rid of those damaged or dead ends by scheduling a trimming session a month before your wedding day! It helps prevent split ends and gives room to new, healthier hair.

Minimize the Use of Heating Styling Products

Minimize the use of heat-styling tools in the weeks leading up to your wedding. Instead of using a blow dryer, let your hair air-dry naturally! However, if you have to use a straightener or curling iron, spray a good amount of heat protectant before. Safety first, always!

DIY Hair Masks

Yogurt and Aloe Vera Soothing Mask:

  • Ingredients: To prepare this hair mask, all you need is half a cup of plain yogurt and two tablespoons of aloe vera gel.
  • How to Prepare: Form a smooth paste by combining yogurt and aloe vera gel. Apply the mixture to your hair and scalp, and leave it on for at least half an hour. Wash it off with lukewarm water, and you will instantly feel a rejuvenating boost to your hair!

Egg, Honey, and Banana Strengthening Mask:

  • Ingredients: Ideal for treating dry and frizzy hair, this hair mask can be prepared using a ripe banana, one raw egg, and two tablespoons of honey.
  • How to Prepare: Mash the banana in a bowl. Crack an egg into the banana mixture and add honey. Mix well and apply the mask to damp hair. Then, cover your hair with a shower cap or plastic wrap. Leave for about 30 minutes and rinse well!

Consulting with the Hairstylist

If you don’t want the stress of changing your hairstyles at the last moment, consider visiting your professional hairstylist in advance! This not only gives room for experimentation but also allows you to discuss the specific hairstyle you envisioned for yourself as a gorgeous bride!

Pro Tip: When making visits to your haircare professional, shield your hair with a hat or a bit of leave-in conditioner with UV protection.

Meditating the Stress

It’s your wedding, and no wonder the stress levels will be hitting the roof! Well, stress can ruin your hair, so you need to calm yourself with meditation and yoga! Practising it daily can increase blood circulation and oxygen flow, encouraging hair growth and a healthier scalp. 

Getting the Beauty Sleep

For soon-to-be brides, beauty sleep is the ultimate stress buster! Lack of sleep can definitely impact your hair!  So, apart from revelling in the preparations, don’t compromise on your 8-hour sleep!

If your hair is long, consider tying it loosely in a low ponytail or braid to prevent tangling while you sleep.

Pro Tip: Upgrade to a silk pillowcase to minimize hair breakage while tossing and turning continuously.

Summing Up:

You, as a bride, must have envisioned your bridal look as you take a short stroll down the aisle. From head to toe, you want every element of your bridal attire in harmony. Remember, amidst all the dress fittings and flower choices, your hair deserves some love too.

Hence, this fashion guide takes you through some hair care rituals that aim at ensuring those locks are as ready for the spotlight as you are! Cheers to your beautiful journey ahead!
