Prepare your hair for your big day!

Preparing your hair for your wedding day takes a little time and effort, but the results are absolutely worth it. The good news is that it doesn't have to be very time consuming or at all difficult, and you can do nearly all of it in the comfort of your own bathroom!

So, what do you need to do to get your mane ready for the big day?

1/ Commit to a great haircare routine

Strong, healthy hair always looks better than dry, stressed out strands with split ends, fact! Luckily, a great haircare routine will help to ensure your mane is on top form when you tie the knot. This means keeping your hair well hydrated with conditioner, leave-in products between washes - serums, oils, or leave-in conditioner - and taking the time to do a deep conditioning treatment once a week or so.

If possible, try to cut back on shampooing your hair, as over-washing can strip the hair shaft of essential oils, leaving it dry and brittle.

2/ Time your haircut right

If you want to get a pre-wedding haircut, not just a trim, make sure you do it a couple of weeks before the wedding so it'll have time to settle down. Otherwise, get a trim a few days before to remove any split and broken ends.

3/ Turn down the heat (styling)

Heat styling is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to damaged hair, so try to cut back as much as you can in the weeks leading up to your big day. There are all kinds of heat-free styling techniques you can replace it with, whether you need a pulled together look for work or need to dry your curls sans frizz.

When you do use heat, do so sparingly and make sure you always apply a thermal protectant product like Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray first!

4/ Trial your chosen hairstyle

Last but by no means least, make sure you trial your hairstyle a couple of weeks ahead of time. If you're planning an updo, try wearing it all day to see how it really feels. Should you discover it's unbearably uncomfortable, you'll have time to scrap the idea and try something else. Similarly, you may decide the style you thought you wanted needs honing, whether that means adding detail or toning it down. Basically, you won't know what it's like until you try it!
