Love is in the hair!
Prep it properly
Valentine’s day is not only about love for your partner, but love for yourself as well! Start your routine with some self-love by taking time out the day before (or on Valentine’s Day) to get your hair soft, supple and super shiny. Start your hair care regime with the Halo Heritage Royal Cleanser Shampoo as it helps to strengthen and cleanse the hair with ease. Infused with the exotic and antioxidant-rich Black Seed Oil, this shampoo helps to promote fuller, thicker, and more radiant hair. We love that this shampoo also gently cleanses, and hydrates dry and brittle hair of impurities while leaving it feeling strong, healthy, and revived. This luxuriously formulated product is infused with rich Shea Butter and deeply nourishing Argan Oil to strengthen curly and coily hair while moisturising your scalp, controlling frizz, reducing shrinkage and balancing moisture.
Increase the moisture
After the shampoo, rinse your hair gently with luke-warm water (add a light scalp massage for some extra love) and apply a generous amount of the Halo Heritage Royal Repair Conditioner to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. We absolutely love this product as it is specifically formulated for fragile, dry and lack-luster hair - while still working magic on other hair types. The Royal Repair Ultra Intensive Conditioner is enriched with Black Seed Oil which works to nourish and repair the hair. This moisturising treatment is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants that help replenish moisture back into the hair while prepping the hair for styling. The conditioner also works to infuse fragile hair with vitamins that help protect the hair from heat while providing intense nourishment all over. With the addition of moisturising Coconut Oil, this luxurious formula intensely hydrates and strengthens the hair while Vitamin E and Argan Oil help to reduce frizz and soothe a dry scalp. Royal Repair Ultra Intensive Conditioner will leave hair strong, shiny, protected, and deeply nourished without weighing it down.
After rinsing out the conditioner, use an old t-shirt or soft towel to gently dap the hair and press the moisture out of the hair. Try not to rub or wring the hair as this causes more harm than good and leaves the strand fragile, brittle and even causes some of them to snap - which is definitely not what you want to deal with when it comes to styling the hair!
Take care of your scalp
Before doing any style, it’s important to prep your scalp as well. Most of the time, women with natural hair tend to have really dry scalps and overstaying the hair can cause a lot more sensitivity and dryness. If this sounds like you, then a vital step to include in your hair care regime is to treat your dry scalp with the Halo Heritage Luxurious Illustrious Scalp Spray. Its unique formulation is designed to ease discomfort and revive a damaged and itchy scalp. Rich in antioxidants from Black Seed Oil, the Illustrious Scalp Spray soothes, renews and restores balance to the scalp while providing much needed intense nourishment and protection. The scalp spray also helps to stimulate new hair growth which is stronger and strengthened with incredible radiance and shine. The Illustrious Scalp Spray can be used on natural hair, braids, lock twists and dry hair and easily cares for the hair from root to tip. The black seed oil also helps to reduce inflammation, reduce flakiness and scalp sensitivity. We love that this product includes tea tree oil which helps to soothe an irritated and itchy scalp while preventing excess oil production.
Before drying the hair with a heat styling product, it's time to seal in the moisture with the Halo Heritage Supreme Leave-in Conditioner. This condition, shine and moisture mist helps to effectively condition, nourish and detangle hair. The luxuriously lightweight Leave-in Supreme Conditioner contains Black Seed Oil to leave dry and brittle hair sleek and glossy. Infused with carrier oils that pull nutrients into the hair shaft, the Supreme Conditioner helps to improve the look and feel of dry, fragile hair. Whether the damage is from chronic dryness or over-processing, this product provides an effective remedy to help return hair to a vibrant, softer look and feel. Because it contains Black Seed Oil, the leave-in conditioner is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids which help to promote healthier hair, leaving curly and coily hair luscious, radiant, and easy to style. Flyaway’s and frizz are eliminated, hair is easier to manage, style and wear, resulting in radiant, shiny, and beautiful hair.
It’s time to style!
Now that your hair is perfectly prepped, it’s time to choose a style!
Do a romantic wave
One of the most classic and feminine hair styles, the romantic wave is a firm favorite for many and looks great on anyone. This look is super simple to do as well and requires only some bobby pins! After drying the hair, use a wide tooth comb to section the hair into small sections. Tightly wrap each section around your index finger till you reach your scalp. Gently remove your finger and use 2-3 bobby pins to secure the tight curl to your head. Cover your head in the Halo Heritage Regal Glam Bonnet and allow the hair to set overnight or over the course of the day. When you are ready, remove the pins and gently unravel the hair to reveal a amass of beautiful wavy and bouncy waves!
Add a classic touch
What is more classic than a put together bun? The beautifully simple bun not only looks incredible but is so easy to do as well. After drying your hair, use the Halo Heritage Empress Smoothing Gel to push back your edges. We love this product as it is infused with a nourishing blend of Black Seed Oil and helps to add some moisture to the hair. This meticulously crafted product contains aqua and vitamin E to leave the hair feeling soft and nourished with a beautiful shine. It has a wonderfully flexible hold so once you apply it and style your hair, you don't have to worry about the hair coming lose or getting unruly - no matter where the night takes you! Once you have smoothed your edges, gather up the rest of your and tie it in the nape of your neck with a hair band. Wrap the rest of the hair around the band and secure the loose ends with a few bobby pins. Add a beautiful jewel clip to the side of your head to amp up the style.
Sleeked to the back
Take it up a notch by making your hair sleek, straight and super shiny. This look is perhaps the simplest one to do but works to bring out your eyes, cheekbones and mouth. Simply comb the hair back and use a clip or a massive and bejeweled allice band to keep the hair back. Once the hair is out of your face, use a straightening iron to straighten the hair.
Whichever look you go for, finish off your look with a few spritz of the Halo Heritage Luxurious Hair Perfume. We love this product as it is a light, nourishing mist which is infused with argan oil. It works to not only add a beautiful scent but softens the hair while leaving it looking shiny and strong. It contains notes of delicate sugar, jasmine, wild marigold, French lavender and tangerine.
