Night time beauty—5 ways to care for your mane while you sleep

Curated via Twitter from Be Beautiful’s twitter account….

If you end up sleeping with your hair tied up in a top-knot or sleep with your head resting on the pillow while your hair is still wet, then here are all the reasons why you need to break these habits.

On days when you don’t have the time for elaborate hair masks, simply massage coconut oil onto your scalp and hair for the easiest and most deep conditioning treatment ever.

While your night-time skin care routine begins with removing makeup followed by double cleansing and ends with a hydrating serum; do you care equally for your hair?

Just like how your skin repairs itself overnight, your hair too uses this time to restore itself while you sleep.

Throwing in an overnight hair mask in your night-time regimen can make all the difference in improving the health and quality of your tresses.

Instead, we suggest you sleep with your hair tied in a classic three-strand braid.

On days when you’re just too exhausted to wait for another hour to hit the bed, simply grab your hair dryer but make sure you use a heat protectant to avoid any frizz.

If you prefer washing your hair at night, then we suggest you give yourself an extra hour or two to let your hair air-dry.

Apply the hair mask all over your hair before you hit the bed, leave it on as an intensive overnight treatment to restore and hydrate your tresses.

While you often ignore taking enough care of your scalp, you’ll be surprised to know that giving your scalp an extra dose of TLC every night will strengthen your locks, boost shine and at the same time stimulate blood circulation.

Only once your hair is completely dry should you hit the bed to prevent tugging and severe breakage while you sleep.

The updo can put a strain on your scalp and eventually lead to hair damage.

Braids will not just save your hair from excessive damage but also leave you with heatless waves the next morning. Win-win!

Wet hair is in its most vulnerable state so make sure you care for it gently.

While sleeping in a messy bun or a top-knot may seem harmless, it actually does more harm than good to your hair.

To give your hair some extra TLC, we suggest you go for an overnight repair treatment.

All you need to do is bend your head forward and flip all your hair in front of you, so your hair ‘hangs’ upside down.

Happy scalp equals healthier hair!

If the answer is no, then let us tell you that your hair is never going to forgive you for committing this crime.
