Weddings and all their moving parts are notorious for high-stress levels. It’s easy to say “leave it to the wedding planner”; however, modern-day brides and grooms going DIY and taking on the planning themselves! Some things don’t have to be stressful, though, like your hair. With an endless to-do list leading up to the big day, there are steps you can take now to have the perfect bride and groom wedding day hair!
Healthy hair makes everything easier, whether you have a color transformation planned or to elevate your wedding look— with a bit of planning, you can de-stress with some OLAPLEX self-care while leveling up your wedding hair.
A Stand-Alone Treatment and 4-IN-1 Treatment should follow the consultation for your wedding look. Your hair can always be healthier, so a salon-grade OLAPLEX session is just what it needs to look flawless on the wedding day. A Stand-Alone Treatment uses OLAPLEX Nº.1, the patented OLAPLEX concentrate to rebuild hair, and OLAPLEX Nº.2, the concentrate with a cream additive. This is the strongest repair available for broken hair.
The OLAPLEX 4-IN-1 Moisture Mask works quickly and efficiently to address dryness in even the most severe cases. When tested on damaged hair, 4-IN-1 provided 74% More Moisture, 84% More Shine, 84% More Smoothness, and 94% Saw More Body. A moisture mask is imperative for anyone with a Fal/Winter wedding, with hair recovering from damaging summer sun. Moisturized hair increases manageability, meaning all those hairstyle tests and your wedding day style will come with ease and look better.
In-salon treatments will jumpstart your hair into shape, but at-home maintenance will bring it to the next level. Let’s face it; weddings are all about being extra! Weekly treatments with the at-home versions of the aforementioned treatments will keep your hair healthy and hydrated. Use OLAPLEX Nº.0 and Nº.3 together to rebuild your hair at home intensely. It’s the closest one can get to salon-grade OLAPLEX at home, so we recommend treating your hair as often as you like to keep it strong and healthy.
There are little steps you can take to make a tremendous impact on your hair. You can rebuild your hair just by shampooing and conditioning with OLAPLEX Nº.4 and Nº.5. Keep in mind; every OLAPLEX product will rebuild bonds as it’s the baseline, whether it’s intensive like the Nº.0 or incorporated in the formula like Nº.4 and Nº.5. For blondes, keep your color bright, fresh, and healthy with OLAPLEX Nº.4P Blonde Enhancer in between toners.
The last step, and an easy one to incorporate, is styling with OLAPLEX. Protection is imperative, and what better way to do so than letting OLAPLEX do the work while you style. OLAPLEX Nº.6 Bond Smoother reduces frizz for up to 72 hours, adds leave-in moisture, rebuilds bonds, and increases manageability. Perfect for any hair type, add a pea-sized amount, then work your way up from there if needed. While you should stray from pre-wedding thermal styling, there are occasions, like rehearsals and events, you’ll want to style for. For that, use OLAPLEX Nº.7 Bonding Oil for heat protection up to 450ºF, shine, moisture, and bond-building.
Once you find a routine, all of this becomes a balanced ritual and one that will give you stunning wedding day hair and best practices for keeping it up after!
