Care For Your Hair Dear Brides

The thing about damage is that it is a gradual process. You may not see it at once, but over a period of time, the quality of the hair will deteriorate

For women, the preparations towards perfecting the bridal look start way in advance. Give your hair the care it deserves before your D-day and afterwards too, say experts.

Adhuna Bhabani, Founder and Creative Director, BBLUNT, points out possible causes of hair damage:

* The thing about damage is that it is a gradual process. You may not see it at once, but over a period of time, the quality of the hair will deteriorate. Damaged hair not only lacks moisture and luster but elasticity as well and this makes it more prone to breakage, split ends and ultimately hair fall.

* A lot of brides tend to be anxious with a lead up unto their big day. Pre-wedding jitters only add to their list of woes. Very often, anxiety leads to hair fall and a stressed scalp. Wedding planning can get 
hectic; but regular hair care is necessary for beautiful looking healthy hair.

* Innumerable rounds of trousseau shopping mean continuously exposing your hair to dust and pollution. Similarly, long hours in the sun, heat, and humidity as well as other environmental factors that you expose our hair to on a daily basis play a considerable role in damaging your hair.

* To top it up, the consistent pressure to be looking your best can push you to frequently succumb to the use of heated tools such as hair dryers, hot rollers, flat irons or curling tongs without using any styling product before or even more, opt for a chemical treatment for your hair. Blow drying your hair or even, combing the hair without proper conditioning will roughen the cuticle, which is the outer protective layer of the hair.

Pre-wedding hair care routine:

* Best is to start a regime at the onset itself from the very day you say "yes".

* A deep conditioning treatment, recommended by your hair expert, should be an obligatory pre-wedding must-do to prep your hair. Also, remember to stay hydrated and drink lots and lots of water.

* Most importantly, make sure you arm yourself with the right products to protect and prep your hair for your big day. The right product regime - a shampoo and conditioner combination with repairing properties will work to improve the texture and condition of your hair over time.

Post-wedding hair care routine:

* Regular moisture-infusing conditioning treatments and anti-breakage treatments are a must follow-up after all the wedding day shenanigans.

Agnes Chen, Technical Head, Streax Professional, shares essential tips:

* The foundation of haircare for a bride-to-be is to shampoo, conditioner and apply hair serum or hair potion on her hair, way in advance. This three-step approach is the most important and goes a long way in ensuring healthy, frizz-free and lustrous hair on the D-Day.

* Another very important haircare hack is regular deep conditioning treatments and hair spas at your nearest salon. This is not only a 
luxury, but a necessity designed to strengthen hair follicles, stimulate blood circulation, nourish the roots and revitalize the scalp.

* The third most important step is to avoid harsh chemicals and products that can damage your hair before your wedding. Read the label on haircare products before you buy them. Couple these tips with healthy sleeping habits, a fitness regime, and nutritious eating.

* The morning-after-hair tends to feel frizzy, dull and dry due to the exposure to hair styling products and the flashlights. Make sure you wash your hair properly with a mild cleansing agent to remove all the hair product and styling mousse that was used the previous evening.

* Once you complete the routine hair care and conditioning, detangle by combing your hair carefully to remove all knots. Divide your hair into sections and use a wide-toothed comb to avoid breakage.

* Use products that contain argan oil, and 
moisturising agents that can bring back the lost luster. Hair potions come in handy for a quick fix when you step out for the post-wedding functions.
