Getting your hair bridal perfect is not an overnight occurrence. It takes persistence and time plus the assistance of an amazing hairdresser!
Thin lifeless hair will not look more amazing with extensions – it will just not look like you, the hair extensions will show at the roots, and look terribly fake. Healthy fine hair will often not need extensions to allow the hairstylist to achieve amazing things! But if extensions are needed – they blend in smoothly and more naturally.
If you are lucky enough to have wonderful thick hair, it is still not foolproof. Thick one layer hair is just too hard to control – you cannot curl it or work it, let alone pin it up! It needs layers cut into it so that it does what you want it to do.
All one layer hair, be it thick or thin will not curl that easily or hold a curl, so no matter how much hair you have – some layers will be necessary.
If you have mouse brown hair which never plays nicely – having some foils added to your hair starting at the roots, will give it more texture, as well as showing off any curls or waves added to the hair. Bleaching the hair damages it – therefore giving the hair added texture. Adding a darker colour, will just soften the hair up and not make it any more manageable.
Most brides turn up with photos of girls with treated blond hair – this is because treated blond hair is so much easier to style. If you do not have treated blond hair – you will never be able to have a blond hairstyle as your hair will just not hold as well. Naturally, blond hair will also be an issue.
Using the correct hair care – and washing your hair correctly will make an amazing difference to your hair – read Wash your hair shiny and healthy for the best hair washing advice!
Something which has become a forgotten art – is the art of brushing your hair regularly. Get yourself a stiff hairbrush and brush your hair a few good brushes every day. Give your hair a really good brush before your wash it – this assists in releasing all of the oils and dirt from the scalp, helping you get it super clean. The idea is to brush your scalp more than your actual hair. Brushing across the scalp stimulates the blood flow as well as I said before releasing the dirt and oils. It also spreads the oil from your scalp through the hair helping keep your tresses healthy and shiny! Stimulating the blood flow to your scalp – helps strengthen the hair as well as helping bring nourishment to it.
Eat for healthy hair as well. A diet high in Omegas – flaxseed oil, avocado, eggs, and fish just to name a few will add glossiness and thickness to your hair.
Animal and plant proteins will stimulate growth and thicken it. Add Spirulina to your diet – it is high in protein and other hair enhancing nutrients! The added benefit is that Spirulina increases your energy will levels – helping you work your way through all of your wedding plans!
Take a skin and hair supplement to give your hair what it needs (as well as your skin!) The supplement should contain Zinc, Silica and Vitamin E just to name a few goodies.
Drinking filtered or bottled water for your hair (not from the tap – too many chemicals) is just as important as is drinking water for your skin.
Follow all of these rules to have the best ever bridal hair!
