4 Easy Steps for Better Hair While You Sleep

Nobody wants to have to live with hair that looks, let alone actually is unhealthy. You be shocked to realise how much your hair has to go through and deal with each day, but there is help at hand.  

Just like a strong and useful skincare routine, your hair care routine and attitudes towards your locks will go an awfully long way to helping you achieve silky success. It’s easy to focus on the things that can give you benefits during the day, but often people overlook all too often, how hair can become damaged when bedtime comes around and you’re sleeping.

We’re going to delve into a handful of the areas that can hinder better hair and what you should do to counteract this:

Brushing your hair before bed

We know that living in a world of rushed living and frantic goings-on can mean you forget to do some of the essentials before you jump into bed to wind down and enjoy some sweet slumber before the next day comes around.

If you don’t incorporate brushing your hair into your nightly routine, you run the risk of having knots and tangles when you get up in the morning.

Obviously, you don’t want this, because you’re then going to have to spend longer in the morning getting ready, as well as causing excessive strain on your hair as you try to rid your hair of the knotting and tangles you’ve incurred as you slept.

It’s simply a case of ensuring that you remember to spend some time carefully brushing your hair, which can actually act as a soothing effect before you bed down for the night.

Some of the other benefits that brushing your hair will deliver include:

  •    Stimulating the scalp to increase blood flow, bringing more oxygen and nutrients to nourish your hair roots, while also promoting hair growth.
  •    Helps to move the natural conditioning oils from your scalp all the way through the hair to the tips, conditioning the hair as it goes. This is great for anyone who has dry and/or frizzy hair.
  •    Brushing also aids in loosening and ridding your scalp of dead skin that could block pores and hair follicles.

Don’t leave your hair loose

It might feel relaxed and free to have your hair loose when you go to bed, but if you want to help the healthy cause, you should think about containing your hair when you are moving about as you sleep.

In fact, there are quite a few options available to you here. You can go for two pigtails, a single side braid, a Dutch braid, or perhaps you’d prefer a rope braid; the choice is yours! You simply have to remember not to make the braid too tight or you will wake up sporting some lovely mermaid waves.

The true benefit of wearing your hair this way when you go to bed is that it will lower the chances of you experiencing hair breakage as your hair will be secure.

Switch to using silk or satin pillowcases

You might be thinking what the correlation is with healthy hair and your pillowcases? Well, as soon as you lay your head down, your head is on those pillows for anything up to nine hours a night, which means it’s in contact with your pillowcase longer than anything else in your life.

So, if you want to prevent damaged hair, you have to consider what will be kindest to your locks while you’re fast asleep.

Pillowcases are known for housing dirt and oils which can hinder the condition of your hair, so it’s important to stay on top of cleaning your sheets to maintain healthy hair as well. If you aren’t used to owning silk or satin sheets, you might be wondering how often should you change (and clean) your pillows, but once you’re on top of what you need to do, the benefits can be enjoyed!  

Don’t sleep with wet hair

One of the best things you can throw into your nightly routine is a relaxing bath or shower to prepare us for bed. If you’ve had a busy day you might get in without remembering to tie your hair up or put it in a cap.

If your hair gets wet, we would definitely recommend not sleeping with wet hair. You might not know, but having wet hair makes your locks particularly delicate, leaving it far more susceptible to frizzing and in more extreme instances breaking.

There really isn’t much of a valid reason to miss out on following the simple steps above. So,  just bear in mind the importance of having healthy habits with your hair when night-time comes and you’ll see the positive results in no time.

    I was always told the opposite about putting your hair back when you got to bed.

I fell asleep once after I got out of the shower and man did I regret it the next morning. Great tips.

    Haha my eldest could have used this a few weeks back! Her younger sister is religious about brushing those long locks before bed, but Big Sis not so much. After one too many mornings of trying to un-knot too many split ends, I just chopped it all off again (so she’s back to a stacked inverted bob). It is cute, but sometimes she misses having it longer – she def wasn’t up to the maintenance, though!
