3 hair care tips for your wedding day
I thought I would share this blog post from my wedding pal Simone Whitehead on how to care for your hair and get it in tip-top condition for your big day.
Welcome to the first of my blog posts on www.simonewhiteheadbridalhair.co.uk I thought we could start with some of the most important tips I can give you: how to get your hair in perfect condition for your wedding day.
It's very important to look after your hair in the run-up to your wedding. Bridal hair styling can be heavy going; with lots of heat, hairspray and backcombing needed to achieve your desired look on the day. Hair that's in tip-top condition will be able to withstand this level of professional styling; and look beautiful and shiny in your wedding photographs.
These are my 3 hair care tips for your wedding day.
#1 Have regular haircuts
Even if you're trying to grow your hair; having it trimmed regularly will eliminate any damaged or split ends and make sure that it's growing healthily. If left unattended; these unruly ends will spread, drying out and damaging your hair. Aim for a trim every 6-8 weeks.
#2) Use a deep conditioning treatment
In the lead-up to your wedding; you should use a deep conditioning treatment once a week
to give your hair that little bit of extra nourishment. Apply the deep conditioning treatment and leave for 5-20 minutes to work. Start these treatments a few months before your wedding day; and stop the week before.
3) Use heat protection
This is something that a lot of people either forget about; or don't think about at all. Every time you apply heat to your hair, be that with a hairdryer, straighteners, curling wand or hot rollers; the stress of styling can damage the hair shaft. To counteract this; you should always apply a good heat protection treatment to your hair before styling. There are lots of excellent sprays and creams on the market and at a range of prices to fit any budget.
