‘Tis the season for all of the holiday parties. This is the one time of the year you’d probably be styling your hair over and over again. If you’re one who uses heat to re-style your hair, you might want to take some necessary precautions, like using a pre-party hair care routine, to prevent going into the new year with damaged hair.
What should this pre-party hair care routine consist of? Everything that will prevent you from paying a hefty price for the damage you’ve caused. Read on to get the lowdown on what you should be doing this party season:
3 Tips for Pre-Party Hair Care
1. At-home or in-salon hair care treatments
If you’ve been holding off on getting your hair care treatments, you’re already off to a bad start. However, you might be right on time for a pre-party hair care treatment. As the air is more crisp and dry, the overall health of your hair can suffer. Deep conditioning at home is a great way to save money from going into a salon and it doesn’t have to take too much of your time. Use a hair care treatment like Nexxus Humectress Moisture Restoring Masque, which only needs to be left on your hair for about five minutes for it to work its nourishing and moisturizing benefits. Deep conditioning is crucial this season, since you want to restore any moisture loss from heat-styling tools.
2. Get a hair trim.
There’s nothing worse than having frayed and damaged ends ruin the overall look of your hairstyle. If it’s one thing you shouldn’t step into the new year with is dead ends—friendships, relationships, your hair ends, let it all go! Schedule a hair trim with a stylist to get a professional cut. Maintain healthy hair ends all season long by coating your strands with a hair serum like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum that will add a protective layer to your hair and shine to your hairstyle.
3. Take inventory of your styling tools.
Christmas is still a few weeks away, but there are enough holiday promotions happening that can help you replace any old tools with fresh and new ones. Are the plates of your flat iron chipping? Throw it out. Is the comb attachment of your blow dryer missing teeth? Throw that out too. All of this can lead to damaged hair.
