Only a few days left before the big day here in Austin. Your body looks slim. You had some spa treatments to make your skin radiant and smooth. But you should also look out for your hair, since it will be your crowning glory. All attention will be on it as it holds your veil in place.
On the day of the wedding, the hairdresser will style your hair to an inch of its life, and it may buckle under the pressure. With that in mind, consider the following DIY home treatments before your wedding day arrives.
Raid the Fridge
There are food items you can use to create an easy-to-apply hair treatment. Believe it or not, the easiest one to use are eggs. Yes. Raw, beaten eggs are wonderful sources of protein for your hair. The longer your hair is, the more eggs you should use. Coat your hair completely after shampooing your locks.
Wear an old shirt because the egg mixture will drip all over you. Keep the mixture on for about 20 minutes, then rinse with cold water. Experts on wedding hair styling in Austin say you can also use seaweed, yogurt, lemon juice, honey, bananas, and even avocados.
Raid the Bar
Beer is supposedly a wonderful and effective beauty product. True, it may leave you smelling like a man while the treatment is underway, but rinsing with cold water after applying fragrant conditioner will take away any strong beer odors. Apply it the same way as you would the eggs, and leave it only for 3-4 minutes.
Raid the Larder
Other than refrigerated food, you can also use oils for your hair treatment. Mix apple cider vinegar with the beer to give your hair more body. Combine coconut oil with seaweed in the blender to give your hair extra shine. Avocados can go with olive oil, while baking soda and lemon juice can remove residue and limpness.
The good thing about these natural hair enhancers is they can be mixed and matched. Make your own homemade recipe. Go ahead and experiment before you have your wedding hairdo done.
