Dry and unmanageable mane can be the biggest bane in a bride’s life, but what if you could tame dry hair without splurging on big bucks? All you need is some patience and plenty of gentle care to transform your tresses into luscious wedding ready locks. Don’t believe us? Read on to find out how.
As simple and ordinary as it sounds, it is a crucial step to attain soft hair. Most brides tend to overdo the shampoo for that squeaky clean effect or sometimes vigorously rub the hair roots while massaging it into the scalp. Since dry hair is more prone to breakage, make sure you massage gently and do not apply the shampoo more than once.
A moisturizing shampoo like the Wella Professionals Enrich Moisturising Shampoo For Dry And Damaged Hair (Rs 575) will make sure your tresses remain frizz free this shaadi season.
We all know that during the wedding your hair will be professionally styled and that’s not possible without styling products and heat treatments. And this can strip off the natural oils in your hair, leaving it coarse and brittle. To avoid this hassle, we advise you completely stay away from harmful chemicals and heat styling at least two months before the wedding, for your hair to regain its natural health. You’d really thank us later for this!
Still want to style your hair in pretty curls? How about using these heat free flexi foam based rods (Rs 225) for soft tousled waves?!
This should ideally be a no brainer. Grandma was right, regular oiling not only strengthens the hair but also helps regain its hidden moisture. And girly, even though you hate the greasy feeling, a traditional champi once a week will not disappoint. One month and we bet you’ll see the results.
If you want to give a heady upgrade to your coconut oil, why not try the Hamdard Roghan Badam Shirin? It is a steal at Rs 378 and can beautifully transform your frizzy mane into soft manageable tresses in no time.
Frizz can also cause split ends and leaving it open can lead to further damage. Our best tip would be to tie it in a fuss free bun or better still, style it in a beautiful dutch style braid for a more put together look. Make sure you always tie your hair before going to bed.
You’ll need more than just a few bobby pins for that perfect dutch style braid. You can buy a pack of 100 pieces on Amazon for Rs 435. Sorted forever!
Now we know you love your long locks, but in order for your hair to regain its strength and also avoid breakage, a trim is always helpful. Make sure you make an appointment with your hairstylist every 3 months, to do away with unnecessary split ends.
Dry hair can occur due to a number of reasons. It can be due to a drastic change in your lifestyle or a deficiency in your diet. If you think your hair is getting prone to more breakage than usual or is just appearing scanty, dry and weak, we advise you get hold of some hair vitamins such as Vitamin E and Biotin. One tablet daily will make sure your hair remains as luscious and strong as it always was!
A handy supplement like Biotin (Rs 340) will make your hair, skin and nails look healthier.
Sometimes all you need is a little bit of love and care to brighten up your day. And as a bride, a spa treatment is an absolute must. Make sure you take some time off your busy shaadi preps and indulge in a relaxing hair spa session at least once a month. This will not only kiss all those ‘hairy woes’ goodbye, but also make sure you enjoy all the pampering that you deserve.
Don’t have the time to go the parlour? Buy the Richfeel Hair Logix Spa Repair Kit (Rs 2,799) for a great hair spa session at home.
