Party season is finally upon us. For many, the month of December is filled with holiday parties and events, and as fun and exciting as this time of the year can be, your hair is not always at its best, having to endure the constant styling. As long as you take proper care of your hair, there is no need to worry.
Read the following tips for how to treat your hair during the holiday season and your hair will thank you.
Blow-drying your hair can be extremely damaging for your hair because of the ‘flash drying effect’, which is the removal of the surface moisture, making the hair follicles extremely dry and prone to breakage. Therefore, airdrying is recommended as being a healthier choice than blow-drying.
Much like blow-drying, styling your hair with heating tools such as flat irons and curling irons can be very harmful. Make sure you minimise your use of these heating tools and try to style your hair with braids or other no-heat styles. If heat-styling your hair is absolutely essential, the best way to do it is when your hair is completely dry. You should also make sure to use heat protectant spray or leave-in conditioner.
With all the blow-drying and heat-styling your hair might endure during this party season, it is extremely important to give your hair plenty of moisture. A moisturising mask, which you can make at home with raw eggs and olive oil, can do wonders to replenish and restore moisture in your hair. Washing your hair less frequently is also a good way of keeping your hair moisturised.
Christmas and New Year’s parties often include alcoholic drinks. Besides the commonly known consequences of alcohol consumption, drinking may also negatively affect hair growth. Although there is no direct connection between alcohol and hair loss, excessive drinking deprives your body of the proper nutrients needed for healthy hair growth. Therefore, it is important to remember to enjoy alcoholic drinks responsibly and maintain a healthy drinking limit at holiday parties.
There is only so much you can do when it comes to protecting your hair from the various effects of the holiday party season, which is why a baseline therapy is often recommended in order to properly treat your hair.
