After a long day, we all want to just hit the sack and catch up on some much-needed sleep. Prepping your hair for bed is just as important as washing your face before bed. A long and strung out night hair routine can discourage you from taking care of your hair before you sleep. Therefore, we’re here to help you simplify your hair routine keeping only the effective steps.
Read on to learn the only steps you really need for your night time hair routine, plus tips on how you can prevent breakage while you rest:
Your Simple Night Hair Routine
1. Moisturize hair if needed.
After daily styling or even dry weather conditions, your hair could be left feeling dry and limp after a long day. To re-moisturize you can apply your favorite leave-in conditioner to add moisture back into your hair, then brush through to detangle. One of our go-to hair products to use is Love Beauty and Planet Smooth and Serene Argan Oil & Lavender Leave-In Smoothie Cream. On natural hair types, we suggest following this step with applying an oil to lock in the moisture added from your leave-in conditioner.
2. Preserve your style.
There’s a method for preserving any style you can name. Finding the right strategy for your hairstyle can save you lots of time the next day. If you’re wearing your hair in a curly style, pin curl, create a pineapple, or use soft rollers to keep your curls intact. If you’re wearing a wavy style, opt for sleeping in a loose bun to help preserve your waves. Alternatively you can spray hair with a salt spray like Bed Head By TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray braid hair at night to maintain defined wavy styles.
3. Sleep on a silk pillowcase.
There’s nothing like sleeping on a cool pillowcase. A silk pillowcase will also help take care of your hair while you’re counting sheep. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase will help prevent dry, tangled and matted hair.
