Stress can take a toll on us on the worst of times. It could welcome us as an unsightly pimple on the smack center of our cheeks or dull hair that’s been falling off a little too much lately. The stress of your own wedding can do that to you but the only problem is, you can’t let stress win and ruin your bridal glow.
If you have a case of dry, dull hair for a long time or if the stress of your big day made your hair just not the way it used to be then there’s good news. With a few DIY tricks that don’t require spending a couple hundreds of dollars at the salon or on expensive hair care products, you can get your hair to shine overnight.
Coconut, Olive and Almond Oil Mask
These nutritious essential oil masks are your ticket to healthy, shiny hair overnight. Coconut oil is by far the most popular oil that is considered to make your hair shine and big names like Kylie Jenner have sworn by it as well. The ingredients of these oils strengthen hair shaft and roots and give a deep nourishing cleanse.
Other oils that are commonly used and could be used in a combination for an overnight hair mask include olive oil and almond oil. These essential oils moisturize and keep your hair from drying to give it a natural healthy glow.
To apply these hair masks, massage the oils deeply into your scalp. The massaging action will promote blood circulation that is also beneficial for the health of your hair. Leave the mask overnight (careful not to ruin your pillow covers!) and take it off the next morning.
Food-friendly Hair Masks
The ingredients in your kitchen don’t only provide benefits as foods but some of them can be directly applied as a mask on your hair to make them shine quickly and inexpensively. Aloe Vera, egg yolk, avocado and yogurt are popular choices.
Change Your Shampoos and Conditioners
Shampoos that contain sodium-lauryl sulfate may do more harm than good to you. Especially on your wedding day, you’d want to use a sulfate-free shampoo to minimize hair fall and dryness. Don’t forget to condition your hair as well. Conditioning is a sure-short way to quick, shiny hair.
Making your hair shine is a long, chronic process but if you’re in an emergency situation, these DIY tricks will definitely help save your wedding day look!
