The festive season brings about a sense of restoration and well-being all around us. Maybe festivals were created so that we could forget the struggles of the previous year and manage to approach life with renewed vigour. Festivals make us want to look and feel great, reflecting the happiness we feel at heart, and our glow matches the lights in the outer world.
Styling your hair is key to perfecting your festival look. But, unfortunately, even if you spend a fortune to get your hair styled at a salon, brittle and damaged hair cannot withstand styling for very long. So, if you are facing some hair woes, take stock of your products, keeping in mind your hair type and concerns.
There are three categories of hair care products, and three of them are equally important. You should not skimp on any one of them, especially in the festive season! You have the basics, the styling products, and the hair colours. Having them all can give you the most gorgeous, luscious locks for every event.
We all know about the basics; we need them all year round. So invest in a good shampoo, conditioner, and follow it up by regular hair mask application.
Keeping your scalp clean and maintaining the pH balance is essential to having healthy hair. Not using shampoo at the correct intervals can make your hair greasy, flat, and dull and lead to flakiness, dandruff, and hair fall. On the other hand, shampoo meant for a particular hair type can give you the shiny, luscious hair of your dreams. Our favourites are the L’Oreal Paris Dream Lengths Shampoo and Ogx Purifying Charcoal Detox Shampoo.
A conditioner detangles your hair and removes the frizz from your hair. A conditioner also softens your locks, gives your hair a lustrous shine, and restores the strength of your hair. Unfortunately, there is a tendency to skip this step, especially when someone has oily hair. We call it the cardinal mistake of hair care. Every hair type requires a conditioner after every wash; the quantity and composition may vary. Therefore, oily and limp hair needs a conditioner, too, as much as dry and damaged hair does. Our recommendations are the Organix Ever Straight Brazilian Keratin Therapy Hair Conditioner and Schwarzkopf Professional Bonacure Peptide Repair Rescue Conditioner.
A hair mask offers a restorative step to your hair care routine. Especially during the festive season, when one is outdoors or using too many styling tools and products. A hair mask can refresh, nourish, prevents breakage, and even solves some of your hair concerns like hair fall or dandruff. Check out our favourites, the Schwarzkopf Professional Peptide Repair Masque and Semi Di Lino Reconstruction Reparative Mask.
Frizz control, adding volume, keeping your hairstyle in place, texturising your waves, styling products can add an additional dimension to your hair.
A hair serum not only controls frizz but also preserves the health of your hair. Our personal favourites are the L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Smoothening & Repairing Serum and the Biotique Bio Almond & Cashew Fresh Replenishing Serum.
After a perfect blow-dry or straightening rendezvous with your hair, You need something extra to keep your hairstyle last long, and hairspray is ideal for that. Here are some that we love, the BBlunt Blown Away Volumizing Leave-In Spray and the Marrakesh Wave Sea Salt Hair Spray.
Hair Cream and Gels
Hair cream and gels have evolved from being men’s only products to gels and creams for women. The advantage of creams and gels is they offer volume, hold, and hydration.
On certain days when you are looking for a quick fix, using mousse, gel or cream can help you to transform your hair in minutes. Our recommendations are the L’Oreal Paris Dream Lengths No Haircut Cream and the Super Smelly Hemp Hold Natural Hair Gel.
The festive season is all about colours. The red, bronze, browns, and highlights complement your rich makeup and heavy ensembles. However, if you do not refresh your hair colour during this time, you will surely fall behind in your festive preparation. So play around with shades with L’Oreal Paris Excellence Creme Hair Colour and Biotique Herbcolor Hair Colour and bring out the inner goddess in you.
