When it comes to the term, nighttime routine, most people think of their typical nighttime skincare routine. And while, yes, taking care of your skin is important before going to bed, most people also forget to take care of their hair. These five ways are easy steps to take right before you hit the hay.
1. Never go to bed with wet hair
Remember when your grandma would say to never go to bed with wet hair? Yeah, you should probably listen to her. According to HuffPost, your hair is most fragile and weakest when wet. This means they can be easily prone to breakage. Allowing some time to fully let your locks dry will help promote healthier hair.
2. Brush, brush, brush your hair
By gently brushing your hair before going to bed, you are stimulating the blood circulation on your scalp, which can lead to hair growth. Another benefit of brushing your hair before bed is that it evenly distributes your natural oils to the shaft of your hair, instead of leaving it on your scalp.
3. Apply hair treatment
Right before getting some well-deserved shut eye, apply some hair treatment. The Good Girl Skye’s Moroccan Miracle Oil is a lifesaver for those with “coarse, curly, dry, or damaged hair.” Leave this on overnight to moisturize the ends of your hair. You can step up your “I woke up like this” look, that even Beyoncé would be blinded by how shiny your hair is.
4. Sleep on a silk pillowcase
Investing on a silk pillowcase is worth it. Not only does it benefit your skin, it also reduces split ends. Why with a bird’s nest on your head, when you can wake up looking and feeling like luxury?
5. Use a scrunchie when putting your hair in a braid
Okay, maybe this is a two-for-one thing, but they do go hand-in-hand. Instead of putting your hair in a tight ponytail or bun at night, opt for something gentler on your hair, like a loose braid or bun. This way, you won’t be pulling your hair out, and it saves you time in the morning! It’s a win-win! When you’re putting your hair up, consider a scrunchie instead. According to Healthline, elastic hair ties are one of the reasons for hair breakage. They pull on your scalp and hair cuticle, and you tossing and turning in your sleep is definitely not going to help your case.
