Take Care of Your Hair When You Sleep

Hair care is not only important when you are awake, it is also important when you sleep. Sleeping without preparing your hair first can cause unneccessary damage. Here are some steps to take to prepare your hair before you going to sleep: 


  1. Remove all hair accessories. Wearing hair accessories when you can sleep can cause tension on your hair leading to damage.
  2. Apply moisturizer to your hair. Night time is a good time for your hair to get a moisturizing treatment. Apply some hair oil, or some leave in hair conditioner to your hair and gently massage it through your hair.
  3. If your hair is relaxed or pressed, gently finger comb through your hair to remove snags and tangles.
  4. Wrap your hair in a smooth silk scarf or wear a satin or silk sleep bonnet, or sleep on a silk pillowcase. This will help to reduce friction between your hair and your pillowcase. If you wear braids, tying up your hair a night will also prevent your hair from getting fuzzy.
