The next time you wash your hair at night, make sure to follow these tips and you won’t have to worry about blow-drying your hair and it getting damaged or becoming a frizzy mess the next morning.
Use a conditioning product for your hair
Whenever you have plans to sleep on wet hair, make sure that you apply either an anti-frizz serum or leave-in conditioner on your strands to keep your hair conditioned. Using this trick will help you in some of the best ways. These conditioning products form a protective layer on your tresses, which further helps to reduce the chances of hair breakage whilst also making sure that your hair appears less messy and is easy to manage.
Tie your hair in a loose bun
Another great way to make sure that you make no damage to your wet locks while sleeping is by tieing them up in a loose bun. To be able to do so, you will have to let your hair air or towel dry for at least 20 minutes. Take your hair together and tie it in a loose bun at the top of your head, make sure that you’re using a cloth scrunchie to tie your hair so that your strands remain dent-free. It won’t only allow you to sleep on your wet hair but will also give your mane a chic bed-head look the next morning.
Braid your hair
This is yet another one of the easiest ways to get away with sleeping on wet hair. Apart from allowing you to sleep on wet hair, this braiding trick will also help you to create some nice waves on your tresses. Instead of tying your hair in a loose bun, braid it in two sections according to the type of curls you want and tie them up using a cloth scrunchie. You will wake up to beautiful wavy hair the next morning.
Use a silk pillowcase for sleeping
For all those who didn’t know, your cotton pillowcase is one of the hidden reasons why your hair is getting damaged. It might be a bit hard to believe since we have been using cotton pillowcases forever, but it’s the truth. Therefore, you need to switch your cotton pillowcase with a silk pillowcase right away. A cotton pillowcase is known to create friction between your strands, which makes your hair lose the conditioning effect, making it look dull and frizzy. On the contrary, a silk pillowcase not only keeps the friction between your hair strands to a minimum but also makes them look healthy and lustrous.
