Mother’s Day is almost here, and we’re excited to celebrate it in a different way this year. Even if you can’t really go out to your favorite restaurants or treat your mom to a salon makeover, you can still make this day special at home. Here are simple tips on how you and your mom can have a hair pampering session, plus our favorite hair care products for moms that we’re sure she’ll also love.
Hair Pampering Tips You Can Do with Mom at Home
1. Give each other hair mask treatments.
Make mom feel good about her hair by pampering it using DIY hair masks. Check your pantry and find common items that you can use such as olive oil, oatmeal, and even honey. Once you have the mixture, apply it to your mom’s hair and give an extra touch of love by massaging her scalp. What a great way to let her relax, right?
Editor’s tip: Restore shine to dry and dull hair and revive damaged tresses by using Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Treatment Wrap. Cover your hair with this wrap for 20 minutes. While waiting, you and your mom can give each other mani-pedis or look at old photo albums and reminisce.
2. Style her hair for a dinner date at home.
Cook your mom’s favorite meal. Then, help her get ready for your Mother’s Day dinner by giving her a gorgeous hairstyle. Surprise her with a look that she’s been wanting to try for a long time. Give her some soft waves or a simple but elegant updo—anything that will make her feel good.
3. Color her hair.
Ask your mom if she wants a new hair color for or if she prefers black to cover up her grays. You can buy hair coloring packs during your quick runs to the supermarket and have these ready at home. You can also color your own hair so you and your mom can go twinning.
Editor’s tip: Once you color your hair, switch to TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Color Radiance Shampoo and TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Color Radiance Conditioner. This duo has anti-fade technology that helps your hair color last longer and jojoba oil that keeps your hair moisturized and shiny.
4. Give her a nice blowout.
Whether you and your mom are glamming up for Mother’s Day or simply chilling out binge-watching her favorite shows, there’s always a good reason for a nice and bouncy blowout. Spend the day with great hair even if you’re just staying at home.
Editor’s tip: Make your hair bouncy by washing it with Dove Oxygen & Nourishment Shampoo and Dove Oxygen & Nourishment Conditioner. These products nourish your hair and help boost its volume by up to 95 percent.
