Ever wish your "beauty sleep" could give you beautiful hair? What if you could use those eight hours of dreaming to save your hair from all the styling and processing you put it through? Well, consider your wish granted. Here's four tips for recovering your hair at night.
Invest in a Bonnet- It may seem old-fashioned, but bonnets are beneficial for hair recovery. Not only do they protect your hair from breakage and split ends as you roll around on your pillow,they also protect your style-- which is especially useful if you go to bed with your hair prepped for the next morning.
Leave in Your Deep Conditioner- Deep conditioner can recover days of heat damage and stress. There is one catch: you have to leave it in long enough. Most conditioners tell you to leave your conditioner in for under an hour, but the key is to distribute your conditioner generously, cover it up and go to sleep. Rinse your hair, dry it and style it and you'll be able to see the difference. To hydrate and moisturize your hair, try the overnight technique with Rusk's Deepshine Smooth Keratin Care Conditioner.
Sleep in a 'Protective Style'- A protective style is a style that keeps your hair tucked away preventing tangles, split ends and unwanted volume. Your protective style will depend on your styling goals for the next day. To keep hair from tangling, simply pull your hair back into a ponytail before bed. If you want to protect your hair from split ends, wear your hair in a braid. Pinning your hair up can "train" your hair to lay a certain way during the day.
Moisturize Your Scalp- If you have dry hair, moisturize your scalp with Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Nourishing Styling Treatment. You can distribute a little bit through the rest of your hair for shine. After that, cover your hair and go to sleep. When you wake up, your hair will have a healthy shine. You can also put a little on the tips of your hair to prevent breakage.
Healthy hair complements every outfit. Make the best of your beauty sleep and wake up with gorgeous hair that's ready to go!
