Once you become engaged, chances are, you'll start to immediately think of your wedding day. While you're busy planning the perfect table settings and flower arrangements, don't forget to also think about yourself. Will you wear your hair up or down? Do you want long, healthy hair on the big day? If you struggle with breakage, split ends, or your hair just won't grow, chances are a quick change in your diet will do wonders for the health of your hair, allowing it to be full, strong, and long on your wedding day.
Carla Rivas, hairstylist and co-founder of Hair La Vie (an all-natural hair growth vitamin), shared her bridal beauty tips with Inside Weddings, weighing in on how to achieve beautiful, healthy hair by eating right. "Any foods that would make you breakout, such as those filled with sugars or grease, are going to cause a build-up on your scalp that will affect how your hair feels, looks, and grows," she shares. "Anything that irritates your skin will bother your scalp."
Rivas says that by kicking out a few foods and incorporating some nutrient-rich foods into your diet, you can make all the difference in the feel and appearance of your hair. Since adding length to your hair the natural way will take awhile longer than applying hair extensions, be sure to implement these dietary changes as soon as possible. Once you do, we're sure you'll feel more radiant and be ready to walk down the aisle with a head of healthy, full hair. Take a look at Carla's tips below, which highlight the DON'Ts (think junk food) and the DOs (think nutrient-rich foods like fruits and vegetables) of eating right for beautiful bridal hair in time for your wedding day:
