Kérastase Bridal Rituals are just right for the bride who wants long-flowing locks or elaborate updos. Their Extentioniste range promises to help your hair grow longer, stronger, and healthier. However, as hair doesn’t grow out in an instant, it is best not to lose any time in making that salon visit and getting a long-hair boost with Protocole Extentioniste. Make sure you enquire about the right home-care treatment, while you are with your salon stylist.
Lakmé Bridal Sutra is a 2-in-1 hair and scalp ritual based on Ayurveda. It claims to revitalize the scalp with oil and reconstructs the hair with a gentle conditioning cleanser, conditioner, and serum. With products that are said to be free of SLES (Sulphates), Parabens and Petrochemical, the treatment delivers essential nutrients to reduce hair fall, promote growth, and improve elasticity. It also has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties that keep away infections and dandruff, while the fragrance relaxes you.
The Moroccanoil Hair Spa Treatment: The 90-minute session gives a much-needed boost to your hair, starting with a dry scalp treatment on unwashed hair. The hair is then washed with the Moroccanoil Shampoo, followed by a generous amount of Repair Mask applied and rinsed after five minutes. Next, the Intense Hydration Mask is applied and left on for 15 minutes; it works like magic to infuse your locks with extra moisture that they need so badly. The treatment is completed with a few drops of Moroccanoil for that smooth shine on your hair.
Wella SP Treatments are ideal for dull dry hair that is impossible to leave open. The Wella Professionals Enrich Moisturizing Treatment for dry and damaged hair, enriched with silk extracts promise to help restore damaged hair. This is a happy solution for chemically-treated and colored hair that has seen better days.
THE EXPERT TAKE
Based on your hair texture and specific needs there are several tried-and-tested treatments to bank on. For example, in the case of unmanageable frizz, Kerastase Bridal Rituals and Moroccanoil Spa treatments are considered to be the best. But in case the problem is severe, we recommend you to take an expert’s opinion before choosing the right course of treatment.
“Today, the global hair care space has grown exponentially and sometimes offers miracles in a bottle. There seems to be a solution for everything — only if you find it in time and find the right one too. It is easy to get swayed by promises such as ‘great shine and weightless feel’ or ‘incredible volume coupled with strength’ and ‘bonds rebuilt from within’ — but how do you know what products suit you and what doesn’t. The stress again is to choose the right expert first, who can guide you on this journey to achieve your dream bridal look. Also, trust the hair specialist you choose and be open to trying different products they recommend to make your hair look better. Do not worry about too many chemicals from colours, or heat from blow-drying, etc – as the right products are always carefully formulated to care for your hair. Colour adds more dimensions to your hair and gives the right emphasis to elaborate bridal hairstyles. It doesn’t always have to be either dark or light — there are several options to choose each unique skin tone. For deep conditioning, masks are better than conditioners as they do not weigh your hair down,” advises Asha Hariharan celebrity hairstylist and Founder – Beyond The Fringe Salon.
“We normally like to start the prep at least three months before the wedding. Because it takes about three cycles to see the actual benefits of the treatment and the resilience start to come through,” she adds.
