Get Regular Trims Every 6 Weeks: Most brides look to grow out their hair for the big day in hopes of a spectacular updo, or long wavy romantic curls to complete their bridal look. Keep the end in decent shape by seeing your stylist for a teeny tiny trim every 6-8 weeks at the most. It will be better prepared to be conditioned, and styled on a daily basis if the end are neat and trim.
Deep Condition Hair At Home Once A Week: Slather on the deepest conditioner you can find, let it sit for at least 10 minutes, and then rinse. Shining, healthier hair will be your reward for such diligence.
