We have reached the last few months of the year, which means festivals are all lined up one after the other. Apart from deciding your outfits for each of these festivals, you are also looking for fresh hairstyles to match those festive ensembles. This means using a lot of heat styling — and we all know what regular use of heat styling does to your hair.

Now, you can’t skip styling your hair during the festive season, but you can surely prep your hair to minimise damage. Regular oil massages, deep conditioning and other hair care habits can strengthen hair follicles and help reduce damage. Follow these top tips to keep your mane strong and healthy during the festival season.

Regular oiling helps your hair in a number of ways. Apart from giving it the nourishment it requires, oil massages also address a lot of other hair issues. It makes hair strong and prevents breakage and hair fall. If you don’t already, start applying warm oil to your hair at least once a week. Once the festive season kicks off, oil your hair before every hair wash for best results.

During the festive season you may have to wash your hair a little too often to get rid of all the styling products from your hair. However, avoid washing it too frequently. Daily shampooing can rob the natural moisture from your hair and make it more prone to damage and frizz. Instead, invest in a good dry shampoo that will revive one or two day old hair and make it look fresh instantly.

Ensure it contains superior hydrating ingredients and use it at least once a week. For those with no major hair concerns, use a hair mask once every 15 days.
