VITAMINS

Great hair requires a little love and devotion. If you want your hair to look good, you first have to start repairing from the inside out. Vitamin deficiency can cause dull and brittle hair and no one wants that on their wedding day! Taking a few supplements will make those difficult strands a thing of the past.

Zinc is good for your hair as well as your nails and skin. Food such as oysters, nuts, chicken and yoghurt are full of zinc (or you can take a supplement!). I also recommend eating food rich in Vitamin B, such as avocados, nuts, spirulina, eggs and quinoa. Vitamin B is responsible for keeping you hair think, help it grow and preventing it from breaking.


HAIRCUT

If you’re desperate to grow your hair before the big day, it’s recommended that you get a hair cut – and keep getting them every 7-10 weeks. This will ensure that you don’t have any split ends at your wedding, helping you avoid that terrible frizzy look that no bride wants. The more breakage and split ends you cut off now, the less you will have to cut off right before your wedding.

PROTECT YOUR HAIR

It’s important to invest in a good shampoo and conditioner. You should be avoiding shampoos and conditioners with harsh chemicals that damage your hair and leave it looking dry and dull.

HAIR TRIAL

A hair trial at your selected hair dressers should be done 6 months prior to your wedding. This will confirm that style, colour and length and will help you get on track to achieving the look that you want. If you want to test a new hair colour, now is the time to do it – if you hate it, you have plenty of time to change it or grow it back.

By this stage, your hair trials should be done however you should see your hair stylist for a trim so that you can be rid of any split ends. Don’t do make any drastic changes to your hair – now is not the time for an impulse fringe!
