1. Experimenting with your hair colour too close to the wedding

If you want to shake things up, give any new hair colour or cut a trial run at least six months before the big day.

This way, you can decide if it looks good on you and it’ll give you enough time to dye it back or let it grow before your big day.

2. Using your blow-dryer and flat iron too much 
While getting all dolled up for the shower, bachelorette party, and rehearsal dinner, you’ll inevitably be causing damage to your tresses by using too much heat.

This can cause breakage, dead ends, frizz and flyaway. Always remember to give your hair a break for truly gorgeous, healthy locks! 

 

3. Washing your hair daily
Doing so will deprive your hair of natural oils that strengthen and shine your hair. If you want to avoid your hair looking greasy, try using dry shampoo or baby powder on your scalp.

Your hair will thank you!

4. Giving your tresses product overload 

While it may be tempting to load up on lotions, serums, and sprays before the big day, you wouldn’t want greasy hair under your veil.

On the night before your wedding: skip the intensive hair masks and shampoo your hair well instead, conditioning only the ends. You hair will be much easier to style on your big day.

5. Wearing your hair up every day 
As much as wearing your hair in a ponytail keeps it out of your face, doing so every day is bad for your hair - especially the days leading up to your wedding.

Instead, choose to wear a loose ponytail or using bobby pins to secure it back.
