Seven products to use for salon-like results at home before the festive season
Diwali is nearing and so are our excitement levels. The festival of lights is all about making memories with friends and family, gorging on delicious sweets, and looking our festive best. This is a time when you want to look and feel your best, and your hair is an important part of this. We have a list of hair care products recommended by Pooja Singh, National Creative Director, Hair, Lakmé Salon, that can help you get salon-like luscious, shiny hair at home in the run-up to Diwali.
Begin your hair care routine with a good hair oil. A good pre-Diwali oil massage once or twice a week can undo all the damage that heating irons, pollution and dryness causes. We recommend the Ayurvedic Indulekha Bringha Hair Oil that nourishes and helps stimulate hair growth.
You can also heat the Indulekha Bringha Hair Oil and then apply it on the scalp and hair for effective results. We also recommend wrapping a hot towel on your oiled hair like a turban for maximum benefit. This shall help the hair and scalp absorb the oil better.
Follow up your oiling routine with a good moisturizing shampoo that is gentle and strengthens the hair. We swear by the TIGI Bed Head Recovery Moisturizing Shampoo. This is great for dry, damaged tresses that need a moisture hit. It strengthens, adds shine and nourishes moisture-deprived hair.
The next step in your hair care routine is a good moisturizing conditioner that replenishes the hair. The highly effective Schwarzkopf Professional Repair Rescue Conditioner is an intensive creamy conditioner for damaged hair that cocoons each strand to immediately improve its elasticity. This product is most suitable for hair that is damaged, dull, porous and prone to breakage from chemical treatments.
During the festivities, it isn't possible to wash your hair every day, but you would surely want the first day shampoo effect. Dry shampoo is perfect for the in-between days and works like a charm. It soaks up all the excess oil and grease and adds volume to the hair. The TIGI Bed Head Oh Bee Hive Matte Dry Shampoo absorbs the excess oils that weighs your hair down, helping you to refresh and lift the hair, while giving a natural, even finish.
Once your shower routine is complete, it's time to comb a dime-sized amount of the TIGI Bed Head Control Freak Frizz Control Serum through wet hair, which helps detangle and give the hair a smooth, frizz-free effect. This light, gel-based, frizz-fighting serum helps to fight humidity and leaves hair smooth and silky. During your Diwali celebrations, a touch of this cream will tame the pesky little fly aways.
A hair mask is a must-have in your Diwali hair care routine to replenish lost nutrients. We swear by the Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask, which is a quick five-minute revival treatment with rich and creamy deep conditioning formula. It deeply hydrates and moisturizes the hair and improves texture and manageability. Use a hair mask once a week to notice visible improvements to your damaged tresses.
Sleek bun or wavy beach waves -- whatever your festive hairstyle, the hair spray has your back. The TIGI Bed Head Masterpiece Massive Shine Hairspray is a must-have finishing hairspray, which gives high gloss and hold to any hairstyle. Use it as the last step in your routine for salon-like results.
