In the spirit of back to school time, we know you’re eager to find ways to maximize your sleep schedule as much as possible. Let’s be honest, most of us want to sleep as long as possible and spend as little time doing our hair as we can. While it may feel like that’s pretty darn near impossible, there are actually some really creative and easy ways for getting better hair in your sleep. Don’t believe us? Keep reading because we’re dishing on all the details!
Prep Your Hair At Night
While you may be in the habit of washing your hair in the morning to get going, experts actually suggest that you wash your hair at night to allow it to air dry through the night. Not only does this cut down on your drying time in the morning, but it’s also a lot healthier for your hair. In addition, just because you’re not blow drying your hair at night doesn’t mean you should skip applying product. Apply a small amount of haircare product to your hair after washing, depending on what type of look you want (i.e. volume, frizz-free, etc.). Not only does washing your hair allow you to cut back the heated hair styling, but you’re also cutting your morning routine time down by quite a bit! Winning for sure!
Pin Your Hair Up
If you’re like us, you’ve definitely been in a habit of keeping your hair down at night. Experts have said that we all need to kick that habit to the curb. Going to sleep with your hair down can cause you to have knots, tangles and even hair breakage. Instead, loosely tie your hair back. There are actually quite a few different ways to tie your hair back that can give you an instant hairstyle in the morning, depending on what you want to wake up to. If you just want loose waves, tying your hair back in a loose top knot will do the trick. If you want something a little more wavy or even curly, securing your hair in braids or smaller little buns all around your head will be your go-to. Not only are these little bed time hairstyles easy to achieve, but they’re also heat free! They really allow you to go to bed with your hair pinned back and wake up to a gorgeous hairstyle that you just need to let your hair down to achieve.
you may have heard that the pillow cases are being found to have a huge impact on your hair and skin. If you want to give your hair extra loving at night and protect it continuously, using silk pillowcases are amazing for your hair because they’re much gentler than cotton or other fabrics. In addition, experts suggest getting in the habit of massaging your scalp at night. Massaging your scalp has amazing benefits and gets the blood circulating – which also promotes hair growth.
