As a Black bride with textured hair, achieving your ideal wedding look shouldn’t be a challenge, regardless of the destination. With the help of Tyshenna Phillips, Expert Braider from Rebundle, a certified trichologist, and owner of Empowhairment you can address concerns about weather-related factors and ensure your hair and scalp are in optimal condition for the big day.

Addressing Humidity and Heat

Opt for low-maintenance extension hairstyles like knotless braids or afro-textured clip-ins. These styles protect your natural hair from harsh weather conditions. Alternatively, if you choose to wear your hair extension-free, use anti-humidity and heat-resistant products to minimize frizziness and maintain your desired style.

Tyshenna says, “My favorite holding spray for textured hairstyles is the ‘Firm Holding Spray’ by Influance. It helps keep the hair in place even in humid conditions.”

Trichologist’s Expertise

As a certified Trichologist Tyshenna ensures that brides with hair and scalp issues can feel prepared to achieve their wedding day look with a routine.

Tyshenna explains, “I focus on creating a clean scalp and healthy, hydrated hair for my clients. This includes double cleansing the hair with gentle clarifying and moisturizing shampoos, followed by deep conditioning treatments to restore moisture balance.”

Pre-wedding Hair Care Routine:

It’s essential to establish a hair care routine leading up to your wedding. While individual needs vary, Tyshenna emphasizes the importance of…

  • maintaining moisture balance
  • regular cleansing
  • deep conditioning

Tyshenna advises, “Invest in a gentle clarifying and moisturizing shampoo free of sulfates and parabens. These ingredients can cause dryness and irritation. Additionally, ensure proper hydration by drinking enough water and consuming water-rich fruits and vegetables.”

By addressing weather-related concerns, implementing a personalized hair care routine, and using high-quality products, you can embrace your natural beauty and radiate with confidence on your special day.
