1. 6 Months Before Your Wedding
This is the perfect time to start including nutrients like protein into your diet that promotes hair growth. If you’re a vegetarian add berries, spinach, avocados, nuts and seeds to your diet. For non-vegetarians, eat more fish and eggs. Also, exercise to keep your hair healthy from the inside out. Along with your cardio and yoga, be sure to massage your scalp to promote better blood flow.
2. 3 Months Before The Wedding
Exfoliate your scalp twice a week with an anti-dandruff shampoo, scrub or products with salicylic acid. You can also try going for regular hair spa sessions to improve the texture of your strands. And, for some extra lustre and strength, add multivitamins supplements like biotin and D3 to your routine.
3. 1 Month Before The Wedding
Reduce shampooing to only twice a week as excessive washing can dry out your strands and scalp. You can use a moisturising hair mask every week or use warm oil to gently massage your scalp and rinse it off after a couple of hours to lock in the desired moisture for your mane.
4. 1 Day Before Your Wedding
Make sure you catch up on some good sleep, stay calm, and most importantly hydrated!
5. 3 Super Ingredients To Consider
Biotin helps in thickening and lengthening your hair while increasing follicle growth. Hemoglobin stimulates hair growth and prevents hair loss. Vitamin D3 helps in new hair follicle creation that results in thick and bouncy hair.
