I had my hair and makeup trial last week and LOVED my updo! It stayed all day and was really perfect. However, I had a lot of trouble washing it out at the end of the day! She did a great job of teasing, which held my veil really well when I tried it on and kept my volume all day. But it made washing all the product out of my hair, etc. quite difficult.
I ended up having to put conditioner in my hair first in the shower in order to brush it out and then shampoo and conditioner normally. However, the next day I still had some product residue because I use a moisturizing shampoo and it just didn’t clean it all out. I ended up buying a Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo I found at the grocery store which helped get the product out finally, but I’m curious if I’m the only one who had this problem! And it’s a long process to potentially go through on the night after our wedding…
Anyone else have tips for getting everything out of your hair after the wedding? I’m curious what other brides have done!

Everything you did is what I did, just be gentle on your hair. After taking out bobby pins i got in the shower and loaded on the conditioner and with the help of a wide tooth comb i started combing my hair starting at the ends and working my way up. A good clarifying shampoo will do the trick of cleaning all of the prodcut off. Good luck bee 🙂

I think I had to shampoo my hair four separate times the morning after my wedding to get all the product out. My stylist teased the shit out of my hair to give it the volume it needed to hold the veil, but I was still able to brush it while it was dry by starting at the ends and just working very patiently and slowly. My stylist strongly advised me not to brush out my hair while it was wet becaues that causes the hairs to break.

Don’t wet your hair then try to brush it through in the shower. That’s the best way to get a matted mess.
Take all your pins and whatnot out then brush it out with a big paddle brush and tease out any knots so it’s as tangle free as possible. Then go to bed if youre having a late wedding.
When it comes to washing just brush through again before wetting. Then wash and condition with loads of conditioner – use leave in conditioner too if you like, then dry and brush through again when dry.
This is from someone with waist length hair who regularly has updos using a ton of product and back combing and hair pieces etc

Call me nasty, but I just took all the pins out, brushed out the teasing and left it for the day after. I was so exhausted by the time our day was over that there was no way I was getting in the shower and dealing with that mess.
When it came to breakfast the next morning with all our guests I had volume and gorgeous curls. No one was the wiser!
