As Halloween weekend comes to an end, it’s about that time to start showing your hair some extra love and care. As fun as the glitter, temporary hair color, and pounds of hairspray was in the moment, the aftermath is never as exciting. With the right products and a lot of patience, you can certainly restore your hair back to health!
Restoring Moisture and Shine
Your morning-after hair is probably in desperate need of a good shampoo and conditioning session. So, the first step to post-Halloween hair care is to hop in the shower and rinse out all the built-up products. For best results, leave your conditioner on for a few minutes so that it can deeply penetrate each strand.
However, even after washing and conditioning, you might still notice that your hair feels drier, weaker, and frizzier than usual. Don’t panic; it’s normal for your hair to show noticeable signs of stress after Halloween festivities!
Especially if your hair was already damaged before Halloween, it’s time to up your shampoo game to bring your hair back to life. First and foremost, using a sulfate-free shampoo will not only reduce irritation, but it’ll retain the moisture in your scalp rather than dry it out. Sulfate products can strip the hair of its natural oils, and at a time like this, your hair needs all the moisture it can get!
Anti-Frizz Hair Serum
Inject essential nutrients and hydration back into damaged hair by incorporating the Reign Supreme Hair Serum into your morning and night routine. Differing from your typical hair oil, the Reign Supreme is an ultra-lightweight serum rich in Alexandrian laurel oil.
After a weekend of putting stress on your scalp, the fatty acids in this serum nourish the hair and revive its appearance to combat your worst enemy, frizz!
It might be a pain to fit masking into your routine, but for the sake of your hair, it’s worth it. Taking the extra time to apply a hair mask, even if it’s just for a few weeks post-Halloween, can completely transform your hair’s smoothness, shine, and texture. We recommend this Keratin Smooth Mask that’s packed with good-for-you ingredients like keratin protein and argan oil, both of which are great for repairing damaged hair.
Extra Hair TLC
If you want to take your hair care routine one step further, invest in a high-quality, silk, or satin pillowcase to wake up to shinier and softer hair in the morning. As opposed to cotton, the slippery material will keep your hair from getting tangled throughout the night, and best of all, you can finally say goodbye to the dreaded bed head.
While it’s best to give your hair a break from styling, if you absolutely must straighten or curl your hair a few days after Halloween, always be sure to spray your hair with a heat protectant beforehand.
Last but not least, be patient. Depending on the state of your hair, it may take more or less time to return to normal, but with a consistent nourishing regiment, one night of fun certainly won’t ruin your hair forever!
