Get your hair party ready in a flash
Christmas is almost upon us and with it comes plenty of reasons to celebrate with those you love. As well as quiet evenings in and present opening sessions, the festive period brings with it numerous reasons to get dolled up and put on your party outfit.
When it comes to getting ready for a night out, most people think the key things they need are the right dress and a touch of makeup. However, all your hard work and your party look can be ruined if your hair doesn't look fabulous.
Having dull hair that is lifeless and damaged can totally ruin your look and draw attention away from a beautiful dress or well-applied makeup. It can also leave you feeling flat as you may not be able to do much with it.
This is why it is important to take some time to liven your hair up and leave it looking beautiful, soft, and shiny. Making your hair look amazing can help to boost your confidence and be the cherry on top of your night out ensemble.
Have a trim
A lot of the time it is dry and split ends that are making your hair look dull. Damaged ends can make hair difficult to deal with and can leave it looking awful.
Rather than trying to fix incredibly damaged ends, it is best to get rid of them. Have a hairdresser snip away any dead ends - be sure to tell them you just want a trim - to leave your hair looking and feeling healthy again.
If you don't have time for a haircut or don't think that your ends are too bad, you may be able to tame them and add shine with an intensive treatment.
Intensive conditioners that are full of natural oils and butters will help to prevent further damage, smooth your hair and add a great glossy shine, which is perfect if you have a Christmas engagement.
Apply any treatment after gently shampooing your hair. It is best to leave a treatment on for an extended period of time in order to get the most out of it. Apply it to all your hair generously, making sure you pay special attention to the ends.
Put a shower cap or cling film on over your treated hair. This will trap heat, allowing your hair follicles to open up and absorb more of the treatment. Rinse out thoroughly after around 20 minutes. You can also do a final rinse with cold water as this will add great shine.
Hair oils or serums can be used to add instant moisture, shine and control to your tresses. Simply apply a small amount - start with some that looks to be about the size of a penny in your palm. Thick or long hair may need more, but it is best to add more if needed than to over-oil the hair.
Rub the oil between your hands and then run your fingers through the lengths of your hair, avoiding the roots and ensuring your ends are coated. Brush through your hair carefully and allow to soak in before styling.
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
