Here are some hair care tips and advice to ensure that your hair is in tip top condition, ready for becoming a wife.

Get a hair cut

One of the most important ways to care for your hair to make sure that you get it cut regularly, and this is especially important when you are heading towards such a significant day in your life. Having a regular trim in the lead up to your wedding will ensure that you remove dead, broken ends and keep your hair healthy as it grows. If you do not keep on top of split ends, they ‘travel’ up your hair, which can leave it brittle and weak. Taking care of it now will ensure that it is in perfect condition for your wedding.

Focus on having a healthy diet

Including your diet in amongst these hair care tips should not come as a surprise. A lot of brides would love to have the perfect up do on their wedding day, and if that is you, then you need to ensure you are eating a healthy and balanced diet. This will help your hair both stay in the best condition and also promote growth. Try and increase your protein intake with foods such as chicken, fish and eggs; while focusing on foods such as yellow peppers and sweet potatoes to help promote growth in your hair.

Increase your vitamin C, biotin and iron intake

These three vitamins will help you to keep your hair healthy and in the best condition in the lead up to your big day.
