Just because we’ve been sheltering in place doesn’t mean our hair stops growing… If you’ve been dreaming of long locks for your wedding day take advantage of this time to get your tress in tip top shape? 

Whether your looking for a loose and somewhat unstructured curl,  stunning coils, or a sleek straight look for your wedding day healthy hair is the key when it comes to achieving today’s hottest wedding hairstyles.  

Achieving healthy long hair truly takes,patience, commitment and investment.  It’s not an overnight fix and YES you will be tempted to chop it all off or opt for some “at home bangs”  so, to help you through this transition we’ve gathered some easy tip to help you through the growing pains.

SPLURGE ON QUALITY!   While it’s convenient to opt for affordable drugstore brands of shampoo and conditioner they are the #1 hindrance in your mission to achieve long healthy hair.  These affordable options tend to be loaded with harsh chemicals.  Not sure what all of those things listed in the ingredient are?  Here’s an easy way for you to choose, Shampoos that are super sudsy are loaded with chemicals and sulfates.   Drugstore conditioners are riddled with wax and silicone that is bad for your hair, they are not actually conditioning your hair,  it’s coating it.   While they may smell really good and may help in protecting your hair from chlorine and the elements it’s building up on itself and weighing you down.  Opt for a hydrating product that absorbs into the hair.    For both your shampoo and conditioner opt for salon quality products free of sulfates and parabens that will leave your hair full of bounce and shine.  Although they are a bit more expensive on the front end you’ll actually save in the end by using less product daily.

Cool it with the heat! Chances are that during your “quarantine time” you’ve cut back on the heat styling which is a big bonus for all of you heat queens out there, you know who you are.  🙂  So, if you haven’t already done so, step away from the flat irons and curling irons.  All of that heat is crushing your cuticle day in and day out. 

If you do want to achieve a sleek look loaded with shine opt for a blowout.  A proper blowout, will smooth your cuticle and give you shine.  Smoothing the cuticle with a brush and blow-dryer will  leave your hair with a luster that it so beautiful and model perfect. 

When it comes to your wedding day hairstyle, if you’re looking for a curly style do not pick up that flat iron before your stylist arrives. When hair is flat ironed your temporally telling your cuticle “stay straight don’t move”.  A stylist, cannot then go back and manipulate a curl OR get a curl to stay or hold. 

Don’t hit a dead end with your hair growth.  NORMALLY during regular circumstance we would be telling you to commit to micro trims to keep the frizzy brittle ends under control.  With salons across the country closed down to maintain social distancing you might be feeling annoyed enough to brave cutting your own hair… DON’T… just don’t!  Instead of taking a reckless risk with an at home cut opt for a quality treatment which will make the split ends appear less obvious and help keep your hair manageable and healthy while you growing out your hair and waiting for the salons to open for a professional trim. 

Fight breakage! While growing your hair out you are bound to hit some awkward stages, as tempting as it might be try to resist the temptation of putting your hair up in a pony or a messy bun.  While they might look super fresh and provide for some styling ease they can actually be damaging to your hair causing stress to the hairline and breakage.
