In between all the rush of things, the one thing brides often forget to pay attention to is their locks. Well, bridal haircare is as important as any other routine, and we’re here to help you give those luscious locks the TLC they deserve.

Try these bridal haircare trends in 2022 to fuel your tresses with nourishment and care:

The first and foremost step is to earmark time aside for necessary hair spas. Whether you like to pamper yourself with a trip to the salon or whip up a homemade mask, it’s your call. Map out your pre-wedding hairstyle and understand the concerns you might face. For instance, if you have thin, dull and lifeless locks, you may need anywhere between nine months to a year to focus on growth-related treatments. Dandruff and hair fall will take somewhere around three to six months to treat. In case of smoothening or straightening, plan at least six months ahead to ensure you have luscious locks to play with on D-day.

2. Give your locks some love

Want soft, shiny and healthy hair for your wedding? Deep conditioning is the way to go. Follow a bridal haircare routine that includes a mix of hair spas, scalp-based treatments, exfoliation and hydration techniques. These will infuse life into that gorgeous mane. With your hair exposed to external pollutants regularly, you will need to schedule monthly hair spa sessions till the wedding day.

When selecting treatments, be sure to do a hair and scalp test before investing in a variety of products available in the market. Exfoliation treatments will help remove excess oil from the scalp and replenish the tresses with lustre. Hydrating and nourishing deep conditioning masks with peptides and aloe vera work well for brides with a dry scalp.  

3. Shampoo occasionally

A pre-wedding hairstyle requires you to limit over-drying your hair with chemical-based shampoos. Most products available in the market, whether with or without sulphates and parabens, strip your tresses of their natural moisture if used daily. Depending on your hair type and lifestyle, shampoo is best used twice a week, with a hydrating conditioner. If you are very active and sweat profusely throughout the day, find a mild shampoo that reduces hair damage. Try to air-dry your locks and use a leave-in conditioner to help replenish the lost moisture.

4. Chop-chop regularly

A non-negotiable point in our bridal haircare guide is trimming. One of the most important Haircare Mistakes to avoid this party season is to postpone your monthly trim because you’re pressed for time. Whether you think your hair has grown or not, hair does grow at an average of a quarter-inch every month. So, getting rid of those lifeless split ends regularly is a must. This ensures hair health, improves tensile strength and makes your hair look more voluminous. 

5. Feed your body

Do you know how they say you are what you eat? Well, it’s the same for hair health. Feed your body with a rich and nutritious diet of greens, eggs, fish, nuts and berries, and you will see a guaranteed improvement in the quality of your hair. No one said bridal haircare was easy, so besides having a balanced diet, you could also consider trying some supplements to get that extra nourishment. Hair-friendly supplements are biotin, folic acid, Vitamins D, A, C, E, B12, Omega 3, 6, 9 and amino acids. These will help detox your body, give your skin a natural glow and boost hair quality.

6. Say hello to H2O
