The main goal of the wedding planning is to have a fun and enjoyable day that you don't want to dread, while at the same time preserving your health. For that reason we had two separate outfits, one for the bride and one for me. The bride had special decorations, wore a gorgeous dress and gloves, but had very little sun protective accessories.
To make sure she didn't have to worry about getting sun burned and also to help prevent further damage to her hair we purchased a heat damaged hair mask. The best part about buying this type of hair mask was that you can purchase it on your own vacation or at a store that is near you and take it with you wherever you go. It is truly a must have for every woman, and that includes the bride.
When it comes to protecting yourself from the sun during your beach wedding or any other wedding, you are more than likely working as a wedding planner or are a guest at a special event that will require sunscreen. You may be the bride or the bridegroom and want to keep your hair shiny, but still protected by using an inexpensive hair mask to protect your hair from the sun. This is a great idea for when you travel and just don't want to be in the sun without your hat and sunglasses. It is usually much easier to protect your hair without being on the beach and going from umbrella to umbrella.
Many of the heat damaged hair masks use Zinc Oxide as a sunscreen ingredient. The great thing about Zinc Oxide is that you don't have to apply it to your hair. It penetrates deeply and stays put for several hours and it leaves your hair moisturized. It is the best thing you can do for your hair, even after you are done wearing your wedding gown and are sitting in a room with no windows.
There are other natural ingredients that help protect your hair while using a heat damaged hair mask. Aloe Vera gel is a natural emollient and it adds moisture to your hair without adding color. It also helps preserve your hair by keeping it hydrated.
Tea Tree Oil is also a great emollient that creates a protective barrier between your hair and the sun. It makes your hair soft and protects it from dryness and damage.
When choosing a heat damaged hair mask, keep in mind what you want your hair to look like for the wedding. If you have blonde hair and want to match the color of your hair then you should choose a product that has Aloe Vera and Tea Tree Oil.
If you have red hair and you are wanting to match the colour of your hair, it is best to choose a product that has Natural Emollients such as Aloe Vera and Tea Tree Oil. If you don't want to match the color of your hair then you may choose a product that contains Natural Emollients like Tea Tree Oil.
To help protect your hair if you are in a shower or in the sun you should use a lotion that is specially formulated to protect the hair from the sun. The key here is to use the right product and choose one that you really know.
It is always better to buy a product that has been tested and proven to work and that really works for your hair. Make sure you test the product first, especially if you want to use it on your hair for a long period of time.
Before using a product always test a small amount of it on your hair. If you are using a heat damaged hair mask that uses the "smile" method, use it as little as possible because the mask will leave your hair frizzy.
