Easy Hair Care Tips For Brides-To-Be

The dream of every bride-to-be is to look beautiful on her wedding day, but you can never have a shortcut to success. Preparations have to be taken well in advance. Start taking care of your skin and hair at least two months prior to marriage to get the desired outcome. Pre-bridal skin care should be juxtaposed with an elaborate hair care session. Take proper care of your locks to ensure that your crowning glory is at its splendid best on the big day of your life!

Easy Hair Care Tips For Brides To Be

Hair Care Tips and Guidelines For Brides To Be:

  • Know your hair:  It is very important to know your hair and scalp type. Your choice of shampoos and conditioners, hair packs and hair treatments should be made, based on your hair type.
  • Clean locks are happy locks:  Choose a shampoo that suits your scalp and hair.  Shampoo as and when required. You may have to shampoo 2, 3 or 4 times every week, depending upon the kind of hair you have, the climatic conditions and the amount of pollution your locks are exposed to. If your hair is clean, you are less prone to scalp infections and hair problems. Always follow up with a conditioner for your hair.
  • Eliminate those chemicals and strains:  Stop combing wet hair and always use a wide toothed comb while brushing your hair. If you have an option, go for natural shampoos instead of the SLS and SLES based ones. I do not see any reason to make your hair go through the rigors of perming, straightening, styling, coloring, blow-drying, curling and ironing. It is understandable that you want to “look good” or may be, “look different,” but that wish of yours might spur hair fall, dandruff and loss of hair heath. So, leave your hair alone and let it absorb natural goodness from the bounties of nature. Of course, you wouldn’t want to lose your hair health permanently just because you had the terrible craving to “look good.” As a bride, you might want some extra effects on your hair and you might feel that perming, straightening, coloring, curling and ironing are the only options left. But that’s not right and we always have an option, leaving out the ones that seem so evident.
  • Silky Hair

  • Go natural:  Get hold of every natural thing that you can use for nourishing your hair. If you want color, use henna at least twice a month. You may like to add some coffee or turmeric to get a color of your choice. If you want extra shine for your hair, treat your hair with the goodness of eggs and curds. Mix curd with egg. Add the juice of half a lemon. Apply it on hair and let it stay for 1 hour. Wash off to get a brilliant shine. Go for hot oil treatment at least once a week (this tip may not be acceptable for oily scalp). Oily scalp beauties may apply and massage onion juice or amla juice to nourish hair roots. Squeeze the juice of a lemon and dilute it with a few drops of water. Apply all over your scalp and leave it at least for 2 hours to treat dandruff. This should be done twice every week.
  • The intake list is important:  As a would-be bride, you must include loads of fresh vegetables and fruits in your diet. Have nuts and almonds, cashews, dates and raisins in small portions regularly if you do not have a health issue that forbids you from taking them. Drink the juice of an amla or two, daily to promote hair health. Drinks loads of water and fresh juices.

Now, let me come to the best alternative to hair straightening, perming, curling and styling. Seldom do we find an Indian bride with open hair. Moreover, you have the veil to take care of anything missing in your hair style. Now, use this trick to your advantage. Well, you get thousands of false bridal buns available in the most beautiful styles. If you want to sport such exquisite hairstyles using your natural hair, you end up getting tons of hair wax, hair gels, bobby pins and clips that harm your hair. You look good one evening and several other evenings are often dedicated to the woes of losing those precious strands that come off because of the styling. So, if you can get hold of a ready made bun in the same shade of your hair, grab it and sport it on your wedding day. Let your hair stylist work his/her magic to ensure nobody makes it out. That way, your natural hair health is taken care of and at the same time, your style quotient remains high as ever!

Hi Bhuvan, congratulations…..bt the hairloss thing can be a real turn off. I know it coz i myself have been a victim of the same for more than 3 yrs now,……at a point, it used to be terrible….im under homeopathy medication now. It is important for u to know why u r losing hair. Is it a scalp condition like dandruff, sebum or something? or because of some internal problem like thyroid, iron deficiency etc? its always good to check with the doc. Apart from dat, try massaging onion juice on scalp every alternate day, having amla juice everyday.

agree with somreeta …. i could be stress or diet as well… try oiling your hair to give some nourishment…see if you don’t have dandruff… while traveling save your with a scarf so they don’t dry out with pollution , sun , dust , harsh wind…

can try biotin on advice of doc… try and have amla may help…
