5 Ways to Protect Your Hair While You Sleep

Hair Care & AdviceLuxy Hair22 Comments

Sometimes, we can spend so much time trying to find ways to have healthier hair, that we overlook the fact that our hair can also get damaged while we’re sleeping. 

Here are 5 things you can do to protect your hair while you get your beauty rest:

1. Brush your hair before going to sleep

This will help minimize knots and tangles in the morning.

2.  Braid your hair loosely

This will help contain your hair when you are turning and tossing at night. Options are endless: side braid, two pig-tail braids, rope braid, dutch braid...Pick your favourite! (Hint: do a tight braid to wake up with mermaid waves).

3. Use a silk or satin pillow case

This material is a lot less rough on the hair than regular pillowcases, reducing the damage to your hair.

4. Avoid using elastic bands

They can cause hair breakage and put stress on your roots. Instead, use a soft scrunchie and tie your ponytail/bun very lightly at the top of your head.

5.  Sleep With Dry Hair

We highly recommend sleeping with dry hair - wet hair is very delicate and is much more prone to frizzing and breaking.

Following these easy steps is so important, because it will ensure that you are keeping your hair as healthy as possible, even while you sleep.
