Everyone wants beautiful hair that’s glowing in their wedding pictures, and a solid hair care routine is a huge part of that. Here are some eco-friendly tips you can incorporate into your regime so that your locks are luscious come the big day:

  • Choose a sustainable shampoo. Washing no more than three times a week with an eco-friendly shampoo is a great way of being more environmentally friendly. So, take some time to check labels to see what products fit the bill.
  • Rinse in cold water. Not only does this save energy, it’ll give your hair a shine and protect it from excess heat too. Speaking of which, toweling or air-drying will also keep the energy expenditure down.
  • Make a homemade hair mask. Using natural ingredients is always better for the environment, and there are plenty you can try – essential oils, avocado, honey and eggs amongst them. Treat your hair once a week to keep it in great condition.
  • Low maintenance hairstyle. Your choice of hairstyle for your wedding shots can make a big difference too. For example, a huge up do is going to require a lot of product, whereas messy hair buns require very little and they can give you a look of effortless chic too.
