Take your beauty sleep to another level and score amazing locks while you get your ZZZ’s!
Don’t sleep with wet hair.
Never doze off with dripping locks. Besides waking up with ugly bends on your hair, sleeping with wet tresses will give your locks and scalp an odd smell. Your body heat against the pillow may dry your strands, but light sweating and drenched hair do not make a good mix scent-wise. Dry your hair with a micro-fiber towel until it’s 70 percent damp before you doze off.
Use a silk pillowcase.
The refined fabric can lessen friction and abrasion that eventually lead to hair breakage.
Go easy on hair-brushing.
Dump the age-old myth of brushing your hair 100 times to make it shinier. The ugly truth: Excessive brushing weakens the follicles. Just brush your hair to keep the tangles away. If you want to stimulate your scalp’s blood circulation, massage your head with your fingertips—not your nails—instead.
Style your hair before you sleep.
Gather hair into a top knot or braid them to create soft, natural waves the next morning. Unravel the plaits when you get up and set with hairspray—you just cut your styling time in half! Doing this can also prevent your long mane from tangling—a leading culprit in hair damage.
