Helpful Tips To Start Planning And Prepping Your Hair For Valentine’s Day
Choose Simple Go-to Hairstyles
When it comes to getting your hair ready, it is worth having a few go-to hairstyles that you can put together at a moment’s notice. This could be anything from keeping a curling wand on your dressing table to having step by step hair tutorials bookmarked on your phone – after all, you don’t have to have a super fancy up-do to look good on a night out. And knowing a few hairstyle tips and tricks yourself will not only save you a pricey trip to the salon but will also make getting ready quicker and easier.
Add In A Cute Accessory Or Two
If you choose a hairstyle like a braid, for example, all you need to keep close by is a few thin elastic hair ties, but that doesn’t mean you can’t jazz up the style with an extra accessory or two. Sliding a small hair comb into your hair just above the braid, or tying a hair ribbon across your hairline can add the perfect Valentine’s sparkle to your hairstyle. Just remember that on this special day you can never go wrong with an accessory in red!
Add Hair-boosting Nutrients To Your Diet
Everybody knows that our diet is the foundation to many things. Putting the right nutrients into our body is the number one building block to promote hair, skin and nail growth. By choosing which foods make up your meals and snacks wisely, you can keep your hair looking great all year long. Protein promotes faster hair-growth; vitamins A and E can help to boost your hair’s natural shine; and Omega- 3, fatty acids and zinc are a great way to improve your hair’s chance of growing longer, shinier and healthier. Upgrade your diet right away and have beautiful hair ready for Valentine’s day and throughout the rest of the year.
Moisturize Your Hair Regularly
During colder months your hair is likely to take a beating, thanks to exposure to everything from cold wind to additional heat from blow drying, styling, and in-house heating. Adding a hair mask into your beauty routine as well as using argan oil products are two of the best hair care tips to get your strands moisturized and healthy – all ready to celebrate romance!
Pay A Visit To Your Hairstylist
Part of keeping your hair healthy all year around is to make sure that you visit the hairdressers regularly, and Valentine’s day is the best excuse for the first visit of the year! Colder months are always bound to take a toll on your hair, and split, broken ends are likely to happen. Making sure that you take that all-important trip to your trusted hairstylist before February 14th to get those ends trimmed will help keep your hair looking great on date night.
Give Your Locks A Post-Valentine’s Detox
Looking after your hair doesn’t stop when date night is over. In fact, after Valentine’s is when you should be taking the most care of your precious locks. On the day your hair is likely to be exposed to a plethora of extra products such as mousse and hairspray to keep it in top shape. A great way to remove product build up the next day is to use an apple cider vinegar rinse. An extra post-Valentine’s detox tip is to use a scented shampoo for an extra touch of freshness!
Don’t let the cold wintery weather stop you from looking your best this Valentine’s. Make a note of these helpful tips and start planning and prepping your hair for Valentine’s now!
