Ask the expert

Around this time of year our hair can really feel an impact due to the colder weather, heating on, blow dry our hair more and wearing hats. Moisture is zapped from our hair and we are left with dryness and breakage, not what anyone wants on the run-up to their wedding day. Lucky for you we have an expert advice on how to get health hair back. 

Ask the expert: Image 1 "I tell all my brides your body needs sleep, a healthy diet and you must keep hydrated for your hair and skin to look it's very best. To revive your hair for the big day, I recommend using a deep moisturising water-based hair mask treatment once a week. Curly hair needs a bit more effort taking small sections, twisting and gripping them to your head to control those luscious curls.

For flaky scalps use a hair mask with an anti-fungal ingredient which exfoliates away the dead skin and soothes inflammation. For dull hair a clarifying shampoo is a great choice as it includes a tea tree ingredient to cleanse your hair. After washing with shampoo and conditioner follow up with a leave-in conditioner which will seal in the moisture with shea butter. I would always recommend working it two inches from the root. Don't wash your hair every day, let the natural oils work their magic.

I'd recommend you change your pillow to a satin-based cover this will help reduce any frizz and helps prolong the moisture for shiny-looking locks. Don't go to bed with wet hair or allow hair to air dry, as hair is at its weakest when wet, breakage and frizz can be a long term correction.Always spritz on the heat protection spray before styling irons or blow-drying, I cannot stress this enough, be kind to your hair! Lastly, have regular trims at the salon every six to eight weeks will help your hair look it's very best."
