Have any of you changed your routines to ensure your hair looks the best on your big day? What do you recommend?
I'm growing my fringe so that I have more flexibility when I get my trial with the hairdresser. Also taking Perfectil.
I’m just growing mine and not colouring it (may get extensions as my hair is quite fine and I want a fuller looking half up half down look). I wouldn’t recommend changing routine too close to your wedding though as your hair might not agree with the products. :)
Hair vitamins- helps with shine strength and length. Holland and barrett do a good one. Xx
I wanted my hair put up in some sort of bun or up do so I've been growing mine out since the beginning of last year. I also get it trimmed and highlights done every 10-12 weeks and only wash it twice a week and try not to use too much heat on it. I try and let it air dry for the most part and then quickly use the hairdryer for 10 minutes, I only use a straightener or curler if I'm going out so not that often mostly I just leave it natural and it feels so much softer and healthier and its growing so quick!
We started planning a year ago, we get married in 2018. Ive stopped the harsh highlights, regular treatments, less heat damage, then a few months before, slowly re introduce my highlights for a sun kissed look
Avoid using heat on it, let your hair air dry (a little harder in winter, I know - so use a cooler setting). Once a week, warm a tablespoon of coconut oil and massage into your scalp and roots - this is meant to be really good for hair growth. I also only wash my hair 2 times a week, this keeps natural oils in your hair and prevents it getting too dry. And finally, I've heard not to get your hair cut too often if it's not got split ends or isn't damaged as it doesn't actually help your hair grow much faster if your hair is healthy! X
One word: Olaplex. Ask your salon if they offer the service as this stuff is great for hair repair. It's not cheap, but will help to repair some of the damage done by colourants and heat.
Other tips include to stop chemical and heat treatments. I'm a fan of Philip Kingsley's Elasticizer or a cheaper option is coconut oil masks (I sleep with either on my hair and wash them out in my morning shower).
Also I did the hair vitamins & they performed magic in making my hair more Shiny. !!!!
Brilliant as my naturally curly hair always looks Dry !!
I let my hair air dry as much as I can and I use a serum to help my hair grow and keep within good condition also leave in conditioner is a good shout leave it in over night and quick wash out in the morning perfect
Yes, loads because I'm useless. I'm using conditioner every time I wash it and a treatment hydration mask at least twice a week. I'm trying to reduce the amount of straightening but I'll admit I'm vain and hate my hair if it isn't straight as it's weird and looks like I've put my finger in a socket and turned it on. So I'm using heat protection spray as well. I have even become civilised and bought and used a proper moisturiser to ensure my skin looks better. Speak to a hairdresser or the person doing your hair they'll help, that's whose sorted me out. 1) she has the patience of saint because I'm a nightmare with what I call "girlie" stuff 2) because she has told me exactly what to buy and how and when to use - she's an angel. Good luck x
I'm literally just growing mine and not colouring (except the needed roots but I'm old and greying lol), I normally have a bright colour in but figure it'll be easier for my hairdresser to deal with at the time x
To be honest, it depends how you're going to have your hair. I used Phillip Kingsley Elasticizer as a hair mask on the lead up to the wedding but on the day there was so much product in my hair (my hair was all up) you would have no idea what condition it was in! xx
