The wedding season is here! The preparations are on in full swing for those getting hitched this year. You have carefully selected the prettiest lehenga, decor, invitations, food, and other little things. While this may be taking up a lot of your time, now is also the time to follow a healthy diet and set a skin care and hair care routine to ensure you look your gorgeous best on the big day.
To get you started on the hair bit, we’ve picked some easy yet effective hair care tips to include in your routine for weeks leading up to your wedding day.
- Deep conditioning treatments
- Wash hair less often
- Oil hair regularly
- Get regular trims
- Eat shine-enhancing foods
Deep conditioning treatments
When we say treat your hair to deep conditioning treatments, we don’t necessarily mean spending a fortune at the best salon in the city. You can even do it at home, in fact, deep conditioning treatments can be done using the most basic ingredients from your kitchen such as banana, avocado, olive oil, etc. But if you don’t have time for DIYs, get your hands on the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask. It contains keratin and marula oil, both of which help control frizz and moisturise dry, rough hair.
Wash hair less often
Maintaining scalp hygiene is necessary, but don’t overwash your hair. Stick to shampooing your hair twice a week. If your hair appears greasy, spritz some dry shampoo to refresh and revive it. The TIGI Bed Head Oh Bee Hive Matte Dry Shampoo is perfect for getting rid of the sticky look as well as adding volume to your tresses. Keep it handy even during your pre-wedding functions.
Oil hair regularly
Hair oiling is a major part of Indian traditions. It is not only great for your hair and scalp, but it also relaxes your mind. You can add some natural ingredients in it to make your locks look thicker and luscious. Essential oils, fenugreek seeds, neem and honey are some common ingredients added to hair oil treatments. Alternatively, use an Ayurvedic concoction like the Lever Ayush Ayurvedic Bhringaraj Hair Oil. Infused with the goodness of amla, bhringraj and sesame oil, it nourishes and strengthens the hair to promote hair growth.
Get regular trims
Even if you have thin or short hair, getting regular trims is necessary to get rid of split ends. Experts recommend getting a trim every 4-6 weeks for healthy-looking hair. This promotes better hair growth and reduces hair breakage.
Eat shine-enhancing foods
Apart from treating your hair externally, it is also important to eat foods that are good for your hair. Protein, biotin, essential fatty acids are all necessary for promoting hair growth and enhancing shine. Food like eggs, fish, nuts, seeds, green leafy vegetables, etc. will add lustre to your dull tresses. You can even consume supplements like biotin, folic acid, omega 3, 6, 9 and amino acids to improve the health of your hair, skin and nails.
