1) First thing First - Nutrition

Ladies, we get it – life is a juggling act of home, work, and more. And let's not even talk about the chaos leading up to the big day for brides-to-be! Amidst the madness, your hair's taking a hit. But fear not, a good diet packed with vitamins and minerals is your secret weapon.

2) Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Let's keep it simple – dry hair is a big NO-NO. Time to up your water game, aim for 8 glasses daily. Skip sugary drinks and diet sodas, and stick to just plain water. Another thing, say a big NO to caffeine – your hair will thank you for this!

So remember to drink around three litres daily, and watch your hair become stronger, shinier, and growing like crazy.

Bottom line - hydrate for fabulous hair days!

3) Be aware of Heat Treatments

Alright, let's talk about why you should give your hair a breather before your big day.

Using hot tools like dryers, curlers, or irons can seriously stress out your precious strands.

It's like throwing your hair into a thermal rollercoaster, messing with its internal protein structure and causing chaos in the three-layered hair hierarchy. The cuticle (outer layer) and cortex (the second layer) start losing moisture, leaving gaps that lead to wonky curls, frizz, split ends, and breakage. Sounds like a nightmare right? This damage is no joke, and sometimes, it's beyond repair.

So, the advice? Ease up on the heat treatments, especially as you approach your wedding. Your hair deserves to shine with strength, elasticity, and texture, not be fried into a frizzy mess. Skip the over-styling, ditch the hot tools, and steer clear of dehydrating products

In short, the best hair treatment for brides is going for minimal treatments.

4) All about hair colouring and haircut

Let's talk about adding a pop of colour to your locks before the big day. We get it – those Instagram-worthy hues are tempting. Gold, blue, pink, silver – the palette is endless! Matching your hair to your dress, lehenga, or sari sounds like a fun idea. However, before diving into the rainbow of possibilities, please understand this - how colouring can impact your hair in the longer term.

While trendy colours make for fantastic snapshots, it's crucial to choose your hair colour products wisely. Responsible choices now can save your tresses from potential long-term damage.

Once you have decided on all this, let's move on to the next step. When to get your pre-wedding hair makeover? You should do all the tweaking of your hair's texture, cut, and colour well in advance. Face-framing layers, especially shorter pieces around the face, complement many bridal hairstyles.

The key? Don't rush the final colour too close to the wedding day. Aim for at least a 2-week buffer. This allows the colour to settle, permits top-ups or toners if needed, and gives you a chance to get comfortable with your revamped look.

5) Be Mindful of your Hair Products

Coming to the most crucial pre bridal hair care advice - products.

Now, the products you use matter. Many shampoos play hard with harsh ingredients – silicones, sulphates, parabens – a trio your hair can live without. So use products are are safe, toxin-free, and vegan. Everyone deserves to be happy at your wedding, including animals, right?

If you've added a dash of colour, stick to colour-safe products.

Start by making conditioning a ritual – thrice a week, at least. Don't skip it when you wash, and toss in a deep conditioning treatment weekly for that inside-out glow.

Dry and dull hair? Enter the hairdresser's secret weapon – hair oil. Hydration mask, shine booster, and frizz fighter in one – it's a multitasking marvel. Find your oil love and let it work its wonders. A bonus move? Massage it into your scalp before a wash – because who doesn't love happy, stimulated hair follicles?

And if you're jet-setting before your wedding vows, take your hair BFFs along. Hotel shampoos vary, and consistency is key to luscious locks. Your hair journey to 'I do' starts with smart choices.

6) Stress Management

Alright, lovely brides to be, as we conclude this article, let's talk about something deeper yet crucial - stress. Wedding prep is like juggling a million things, and sometimes, your hair takes a back seat. But here's the deal – stress is like that uninvited guest that can wreak havoc on your hair, skin, and even your insides.

When stress decides to camp out for too long, it messes with your hair growth cycle, leading to more shedding than your hairbrush should witness. It's a vicious cycle – stress causes hair loss, and then hair loss causes more stress.

Ever heard of Diffuse hair loss? That's the unwelcome guest brought in by stress, causing a drop in hair density across your scalp.

So, what's the solution? Channel your inner zen master. Whether it's a daily jog, a dance session, yoga, or just diving into a good book, find your stress-busting sidekick

A healthy mind equals happy hair, and guess what? You're absolutely stunning, stress or no stress! Keep that in mind, and let your hair shine as bright as your smile!

Happy wedding
