If you look up hair tips on google, you will find hundreds of different websites, blogs or online magazine articles about what to do to get thicker, glossier, longer etc etc hair. It's difficult to know what to trust when so many of these articles are endorsed by the companies they are promoting.
So I've decided to put my top 3 tips together from my own personal experience and what has helped my brides in the past. I'm not going to list specific products (maybe one or two) but just give you some easy steps to get the most from your hair so it looks it's absolute best for your big day.
1) Use a good shampoo! - The most important of them all, so I'm going to start with it. Before I trained in hair, I thought the only reason salons tried to get you to buy their shampoo is because they wanted you to spend more money. It is only a tiny bit true, they may want to sell on the brand that they are advertising but there's more to it. Think about it. You've just spent £100+ on your beautiful, shiny, blonde/caramel highlights and then go and use a £3 supermarket shampoo to wash it with. WHY!? Would you buy a cashmere jumper and then wash it in fairy liquid? I doubt it. What's the difference.
Yes the shampoos in salons are more expensive BUT it's because they're good and therefore you don't need to use as much per wash. Shampoos shouldn't froth up on the first wash either, the first wash is to cling to the dirt/grease, the second to wash it away - ever wondered why they wash your hair twice? Now you know. So next time you go and get your lovely new colour done, or even if you don't colour your hair and prefer your natural locks, treat yourself and your hair to a new shampoo and conditioner. If you don't notice a difference, well... you will so, that's it.
