The Best Ways To Prepare Your Hair For Your Wedding Day
So, your big day is coming up – how exciting! There’s no doubt every girl dreams of their hair looking the very best because it certainly isn’t the day to have a bad hair day. That’s why although the wedding planning list might seem never-ending from makeup and dress fittings to skin treatments and so much more – your hair should receive just as much attention as everything else on the list.
Whether it’s an up style wedding look you want or you’re looking for luscious locks, we’re here to help make sure your hair is healthy and shining in the days leading up to your wedding day.
How to prep your hair for your wedding day
Create a good long-term routine with your hair
It’s important to establish a good routine with your hair as early as possible – we recommend at least six months before your wedding day. Starting this routine means investing in a good quality shampoo and conditioner – one that’s right for your hair type. In addition, you’ll need a deep conditioning hair treatment to use once a week to ensure your hair is fully hydrated.
The right products should not dry out your hair and will keep your hair in top condition. You should notice a difference from the very first week.
Invest and ingest your hair health
The saying is true, health really does start from the inside out. If you’re serious about your hair health journey, you should consider taking supplements for your skin, hair and nails. If you have a deficiency in any vitamins, it could be one of the reasons your hair is dull and brittle.
A daily vitamin with biotin, vitamin b or zinc will ensure your hair is thriving. There are also many foods that are rich in zinc such as nuts, chicken or yoghurt if you would prefer not to take a supplement. Foods rich in vitamin b include avocados, nuts, eggs and quinoa to help keep your hair thick and strong. The only downside to vitamins is that it takes some time until you start to see the difference – be sure to give it at least 3 months of consistency.
In addition to taking supplements, try not to stress too much, as hard as it might be planning the wedding – stress can cause a lot of hair loss.
Trial and try out your style months in advance
You know your hair best – the way it falls, how fast or slow it grows and how well it takes to colour. With that in mind, if you do want to try something out of the norm, like cutting or colouring, make sure to do so in advance so that you leave enough time for it to grow out. Colouring can be drying on the hair when you make too many changes and the last thing you need is for your hair to be brittle on the day.
A few additional top tips
- Use a microfiber towel to softly dry your hair instead of a regular bath towel.
- Sleep with silk pillowcases and silk ties to avoid breakage.
- Brush your hair very gently, especially when it’s wet. We recommend using Veaudry’s MyDetangle brush to prevent breakage.
- When washing your hair, massage your scalp to stimulate growth.
- If you’re trying to grow your hair before the big day, we recommend that you get a haircut every 7-10 weeks.
- While you’re at the salon, have an in-salon deep conditioning treatment to give your hair follicles those much-needed nutrients and restore moisture.
- Protect your locks against the heat of straighteners and use a heat-protecting product.
