Follow a balanced diet

Instead of going for chemical hair colors, you can choose to get a natural hair color treatment at home by using henna. For this, first, wash your hair with reetha, condition it with apple cider if you have oily hair. In case you have dry hair choose honey and rinse it off. For coloring your hair, use a mixture of henna with tea or coffee to color your hair.
Hydrate your hair
Just like your skin, your hair needs hydration too. Drink about eight glasses of water daily. Not only will this affect your bridal makeup in a good way but will also strengthen your hair and increase its growth.
Before your wedding day, it is not a good time to try a new look or bolder hairstyle. If you still wish to do something with your hair, trim it. Get rid of your split ends by your hairdresser, and do this with enough hand in time prior to the ceremony, not the day before.
Color Color Everywhere
If you want to go for a hair color before your wedding, schedule your appointment up to a fortnight before your big day. Hire your trusted stylist and communicate about the shades that will look best on you. Color your hair with enough time in hand and you can definitely go for a different shade if you wish to.
Omega 3 fatty acids are the best for your hair health. The best source of omega 3 fatty acids is salmon, which also has a high protein content. If you are not in favor of consuming salmons, you can opt for omega 3 supplements instead. But, remember to start weeks in advance for best results.
Vitamin B is a key ingredient for strong hair making it shine naturally. Your dull hair actually signifies vitamin B deficiency. Include as many Vitamin B-rich foods in your diet as possible like eggs, nuts, and fish.
Blow drying and heat-styling may sound and look great but are actually dangerous for their hair. Avoid any heat styling prior to your wedding. Let your hair dry naturally instead of straightening or using tongs. Also, avoid wrapping or rubbing your hair in a towel to dry it. This would minimize breakage and frizzing.
Just like your body, your hair and scalp also get benefitted by a massage. Don’t forget to schedule a scalp massage session into your pre-wedding beauty regime with at least a month in hand. This stimulates hair follicles and relaxes your hair in the process.
Oiling is needed
Want softer hair before the wedding? Oiling is your solution. Apply a few drops of oil every day to keep your hair nourished and soft. You can choose from coconut, aloe vera, argan, avocado, jojoba or olive oil.
For healthy and shiny hair, get a hair spa done once in a month just like facials. Start a hair spa at least six months prior to the wedding. If you are not in favor of chemical hair spas, there are many homemade hair masks that would help you retain your natural shine.
Weddings are stressful, do choose some physical activities to relax and calm your mind. You can also try to calm your thoughts through meditation or yoga.
Castor Oil massage
Heat some castor oil with a few drops of almond oil. Use this mixture to massage your hair and scalp, a few times each week after regular shampooing with a natural, sulfate-free shampoo. Wash your hair with water mixed with a few drops of honey.
Customize your conditioner
Add 1 or 2 Eggs, a few drops of honey and 2 tsp Olive oil. Apply this mixture to your scalp and wash off with cold water and a mild shampoo. Or you can also mix 1 or 2 eggs with brandy or beer. Blend it well and apply it to the scalp. Rinse in an hour. This makes your hair shiny and stimulates hair growth.
