Attention brides! Is your D-Day approaching and you’re worried that your hair will misbehave and throw a massive tantrum? That’s okay for regular days but when it’s your wedding, you can’t afford to ignore it and put it in a messy bun. The key is to prep your hair at least 2 to 3 months prior to the wedding. It is also important to understand that your hair needs internal as well as external care. So eating foods that are good for your hair is a necessity. When it comes to styling, know that your wedding is going to be a little hard on your hair. The amount of product and heat that will go into styling your hair for every function might be a lot more than the amount you’ve used during your entire lifetime! So here are a few hair styling essentials that you should keep in mind for your big day!
Regular Hair Spas
 

Regular Hair Spas

Hair spa treatments are something that one doesn’t do regularly, because they’re time consuming. And we get it; pre wedding time feels like someone is just fast forwarding your entire day; there’s so much to do, you don’t realize when your day turns into night. But that’s no excuse to skip hair spas. They strengthen the hair follicles, nourish the roots and revitalize the scalp. Many hair spa treatments also use natural hair products, so for those of you who prefer taking the natural route, this is something you can opt for! You can visit your nearest Lakmé Salon for this!

It’s Okay to Skip Conditioner

This may come as a surprise to most of you, but skipping conditioner once in awhile is actually okay! The day of your wedding is the best day to do this, as skipping conditioner will give you hair more texture without weighing it down. Shampoo your hair with the TRESemme Beauty Full Volume Shampoo, skip the conditioner and add some serum on your damp hair. This will ensure a smooth, hassle free hair styling process and result into a stunning, perfect hairstyle.

Tips

Now that you have everything in place, here are some tips and hacks to make sure your wedding hairstyle stays the way it is and grabs everyone’s attention! Since most hairstylists don’t stay through the entire day’s function, unless you’re a celebrity, in which case they do, you can assign a confidante to do the hair retouching job for you.

  1. If you have straight, silky hair and want to curl it, make sure you use a good amount of volume spray and once they’ve been curled, use a setting spray to hold them in place. Keep retouching with the setting spray if they start to loosen out, but don’t overdo it.
  2. If your baby hair sticks out again and again, use invisibles to tuck it in and then top it off with a setting spray.
  3. For loose curls, keep retouching using a texturizing spray while simultaneously running your fingers from mid length to the bottom.

We hope these complete hair styling essentials see you through those busy wedding days!
