Keeping your hair healthy pre- and post-Halloween

Keeping your hair healthy pre- and post-Halloween

Has there ever been a more anticipated Halloween? We all need a day to let loose, enjoy ourselves, and be someone we’re not. It’s also a great year to come up with that amazing costume that speaks to the times and makes people laugh. 

The problem is that the best costumes often require makeup and hair changes that are not in the best interest of your healthy and all-natural plan. 

It’s okay. It’s just one day, as long as you work to boost your health before Halloween, and then work to restore it after the big day. The following tips will give you Halloween hair that rocks and post-Halloween locks that thrive.

Prepare your hair for Halloween

How far out are you preparing your costume? Once you know what you’re going to be, it’s time to start prepping your hair with these tips.

♦ If you don’t need a haircut to have the Halloween look you want, then skip your regular maintenance cut coming up and move it closer to the holiday, so you have a little extra to trim off. This will give you an instant fix for damaged tips.

♦ Fuel up from the inside out by revamping your diet to include more hair-healthy superfoods. Sticking to foods that are good for you and your hair for a few weeks before the big night will boost hair strength, flexibility, and health from the inside and cellular level. 

♦ Go all-natural with the ingredients you choose. There’s simply no room in your hair care routine for sulfates and parabens in the first place, and it’s really a no-no when you’re planning on stressing your tresses.

♦ Try routinely using Hair La Vie Mask to revive your hair with a powerful hydrating formula. With a focus on proteins designed to give your hair softness and volume and natural oils that moisturize your hair strands as well as your scalp, you’ll be in good shape for the big night out. And you don’t have to worry about toxic ingredients. 

Post-Halloween hair recovery

After the big night, it’s time to begin restoring your hair to the incredible health you had achieved with your pre-Halloween routine.

♦ Rinse, rinse, and then rinse a little more to make sure any color, hairspray, or whatever you put in your hair to make it look incredible is completely out, and then shampoo your hair thoroughly. 

♦ After rinsing clean and shampooing your hair, it’s time to load up on conditioner and start combing your hair gently. Remember to work out snarls and back combing messes by working from the tips up to the roots with a wide-toothed comb. Focus on the ends, then move upward a little at a time.

♦ Let this process take as long as you need because rushing it will result in lost hair and stressed roots.

♦ Mask again with the Hair La Vie Mask to replace the moisture you’ve lost by dying, spraying, blow-drying, etc. This product is gentle enough to use regularly, so it’s a good idea to do so–it makes a big difference.

♦ Schedule your haircut or trim so you can have the ends dusted to remove the old, dry bits that make your whole head look stressed and overworked.

♦ Skip the heat if you regularly style your hair with a curling iron, blow dryer, or straightening wand. Try letting your hair air dry for a while to let it hold onto what moisture it can grab. If you are willing to try it–cut back on your shampooing, and let your natural oils do what they’re supposed to do.

♦ Stick to that healthy diet. Did you feel better when you focused on eating healthy for your hair? The great news is that the foods that are good for your hair are also obviously good for your body. You might have discovered you felt more energized, lost a little weight, and your skin started glowing or looking more youthful. Why give that up now that Halloween is over? You might even want to start adding some vitamins and supplements to your routine to fill in gaps you normally miss. Revitalizing Blend Hair Vitamins not only helps repair damaged follicles, but the blend of 20 natural ingredients and botanicals also helps to boost your immunity.

Hair La Vie Mask

For both pre-Halloween and post-Halloween, giving your hair a nourishing soak in our Hair La Vie Mask can work wonders. With 11 natural ingredients selected for their hair-healing properties, you know that even five minutes of masking makes a difference in your hair texture, appearance, and health. Not only do we focus on all-natural ingredients that are safe for colored hair, but we also avoid all unnatural things like SLS and parabens.  

Final thoughts

No one wants scary hair after Halloween, yet everyone wants a costume (including hairdo) that thrills. The key to getting both is making sure you have a great pre-Halloween hair health program in place, and then doing what you can post-Halloween to repair, moisturize, and nourish.

Blow drying, teasing, ironing, and curling while also layering on color and hairspray is no good for your hair, but it’s only one day, and you deserve to have fun. If you prepare your hair ahead of time and then arm yourself to fix the damage afterward, you can enjoy the night without undoing all the great things you’ve been working on achieving with your hair. It takes effort, but the results are worth it.
