Whether you are trying to protect a sleek blowout, maintain healthy and defined curls, or simply aiming to nourish and repair damaged hair, preserving your hairstyle while you sleep is easier that it might initially seem. With just a bit of preparation before heading to bed, you can easily wake up with sleek, smooth and absolutely gorgeous locks. So, here are some simple ways you can make your hairstyle stay looking good during the night:

Don’t Go To Bed With Wet Hair

Regardless of the texture of your hair, going to bet with wet or even damp hair is never a good idea. Apart from ruining the hairstyle you put so much effort into making overnight, continuing this practice of sleeping with wet hair will ultimately lead to hair damage, breakage and split ends. So, it might be a good idea to consider changing your routine, whether that means washing your hair a few hours earlier, or even when you wake up in the morning. If you still want to take a shower right before bed, then remember to put on a heat protectant, and thoroughly blow-dry your hair before going to sleep.

Brush Your Hair Before Going To Sleep

If you have straight or even slightly wavy hair, combing through your strands before going to bed is another simple way of ensuring you wake up with a smooth and silky hairstyle. Apart from de-tangling any knots you might have, brushing your hair every night will also help you evenly distribute the natural oils from your scalp throughout your hair, helping you avoid grease and build-up on the scalp. Whether you opt for a wide tooth comb or a paddle brush, make sure not to brush your hair too much or comb it when it’s wet; a gentle, quick, all-over brushing is all you need to have gorgeous hair in the morning.

Invest In A Silk Sleep Bonnet

Whether you want to preserve your beautiful blowout overnight or wake up with perfectly bouncy curls, one of the best things you can do to your hair is to protect it with a silk hair wrap for sleeping during the night. Helping you avoid breakage, frizz and flyaway strands by preventing your hair from rubbing up against your harsh pillowcase, not only will silk sleep caps keep your hairstyle intact while you sleep, but they will also allow you to wake up with smooth, shiny and luscious hair. As silk is one of the softest and gentlest materials for your hair, it’s ideal for maintaining any hair texture or preserving any hairstyle, whether it’s a loose bun or perfectly formed curls.

Braid Your Hair Before Bed

Putting your hair in braids before you head to sleep is a simple yet effective way of waking up with a beautiful texture, whether you want to preserve the beachy waves you made with a curling iron, or you’re simply looking for a quick trick for an effortless overnight hairstyle. What’s more, loose braids are also one of the most protective hairstyles you can sleep in, as long as you don’t pull them tight. All you need to do is put your hair into one or more braids (depending on the type of waves you want to achieve) while your hair is still damp, and you’ll wake up with gorgeous beachy hair in the morning.

Apply A Hydrating Hair Serum

As an additional step to help prevent frizz and flyaway strands, it might be a good idea to apply a hydrating, oil-based serum on your hair before going to bed. Besides helping your hairstyle stay in place, a good hair serum will also give you a luminous shine and a silky finish, allowing you to wake up with moisturized, soft and healthy locks. However, keep in mind that moderation is key when it comes to applying hair serums, as only a couple of pumps saturated throughout the bottom half of your hair are enough to nourish and replenish your strands with the hydration they need to look their absolute best.

Simply by incorporating a few extra steps into your hair care routine every night, you can ensure your hair will stay healthy, shiny and frizz-free, and you can rise and shine to another great hair day.
