In preparation for your big day and in continuation of the previous post on how to grow your hair longer, here are a few hair care options that could really improve your hair and make it easier to get the hairdo of your dreams.
There are some good DIY masks and treatments to improve the quality, but only experts should perform heavy treatments like coloring, cuts, and chemicals. Be mindful if you are doing any drastic changes, do them at least two months previous to the wedding date so you'll have enough time to make adjustments if you need it.
Cutting your hair is essential for its health and to growth. If you are planning on a big hair change its best to do it before the trial so you can decide on the final look. Is also very important to have mini hair trims every 2 months to maintain the haircut.
Hair extensions are a great option to add volume and length to your hair instantly; it can also be used to add highlights and lowlights without having to color chemically.
There are many systems to apply hair extensions, some more permanent requiring expert application and others temporary like clip-ons that may be applied and removed in minutes. If you decide to go for the permanent methods it's best to do it before the trial so that you have enough time to get comfortable with it and have a better understanding of how it will look in your final hairdo.
Schedule a consultation to decide what look are you going for on the big day. I recommend that you have the trial at least a month before so you have time to make any changes and treatments if needed.
Ask for guidelines for your hair care routine as to how often you should wash your hair and if you'll need any special treatment for the big day.
Highlights are great to give any hairdo more depth and definition. Having different hair tones could definitely be very beneficial for your final look. Have them done at least two weeks before the big day so the final color will set and look its best.
When you decide to improve and reconstruct your hair texture and body there are many options. At first, I recommend trying DIY natural options, but if a heavier treatment is required it should be performed by an expert at least 10 days before so it will set properly and allow for easier hairstyling.
Deep conditioning treatments
DIY and salon deep conditioning treatments can be done anytime before the big day. I recommend that you try it two weeks before the wedding for the first time and if you're happy with the result, repeat it a couple days before the wedding.
Final care tips
The day before is the time to take care of final details. Wash your hair and brush it well then braid it and sleep!
