Your hair is such an important part of your bridal look. Whether you prefer glamourous 'dos or no-fuss hairstyles, healthy locks are crucial to ensuring your look comes together. Brides Today spoke to the experts to help zero in on the treatments to consider in the run-up to your special day.
Stress-induced hair fall can leave you even more worried. However, if it persists, consider this advanced rejuvenation and microsurgical hair-growth treatment. Available at ISAAC Luxe in New Delhi and Mumbai, the Founder and leading cosmetologist Dr Geetika Mittal Gupta explains: "This treatment uses regenerative cells extracted from the patient’s scalp to stimulate specific areas that are experiencing hair loss. Progenra improves the skin of the scalp, the density of the existing strands, and stimulates hair growth." The Progenra Treatment is FDA-approved and promises to deliver quick results with no downtime.
One of the most-trending in-salon treatments, Olaplex has secured a cult following in the past few years. Colourists often use this to keep their clients' hair in good condition, as chemical treatments are harsh and can destroy the hair fibre. This is a three-step routine, the first two of which need to be performed by professionals in a salon, and the third step includes an at-home product. Olaplex No 1 can be used as-is or mixed with colour and a pre-lightener; while Olaplex No 2 is a Bond Perfector, used post-rinse. Finally, Olaplex No 0 and 3-7 are for at-home use. This treatment helps rebuild damaged disulphide bonds that often break during various chemical processes, and it strengthens and structures the integrity of your hair...consider this a 'reset', if you will. Available at Jean Claude Biguine in Mumbai, the treatment takes 45 minutes to an hour, and the salon experts recommend brides get the treatment done thrice before their wedding, to prepare their hair.
SYSTEM PROFESSIONAL ELIXIR PRO TREATMENT
This rich in-salon treatment, infused with argan, jojoba and almond oils, leaves locks smooth and shiny, instantly.

And the mix of lightweight oils nourish each strand and help in taming frizz, smoothening the hair shaft, and enhancing luminosity.
KÉRASTASE CHRONOLOGISTE CAVIAR VIP RITUAL
If your hair has been looking dull and lifeless, this treatment was designed for you. The Kérastase Chronologiste Caviar VIP Ritual is a luxurious treatment that helps rejuvenate the scalp and hair fibre.

Created exclusively for the Chronologiste Ritual, the mimetic caviar pearls in the serum contain abyssine—a precious molecule found 300 metres beneath the sea that calms, repairs, and protects the scalp. The result: sleek, silky locks with newfound volume. The best part is that this restorative treatment works for all hair types.
