You are probably doing everything right with your natural hair regimen during the day. Whether it is oiling, shampooing or conditioning even after trying all the tips and tricks related to protecting hair, clients often complain of frizzy, unmanageable and damaged hair. Bad protecting hair days are a nightmare for anyone and no matter how well you care for your care in the day time, having a fixed ‘good night’ regimen for your hair is also equally important to build and conserve the strength of your locks. Theoretically, your hair spends a significant portion of their nightly time squashed under the weight of your head. As a result of this, you may notice significant hair tangling, breakage, and dullness in your hair. Bear in mind that your seven-hour peaceful sleep can cause havoc to your hair if you don’t follow a proper hair routine at night.
Some of the best hair color stylists swear by protecting hair routine to make sure that their client’s hair stays natural and shiny even after color treatments.
Here are Chez Alvi top four tips to a smooth, manageable head and protecting hair during the night:
- Just like your skin and body, hair too loses its moisture following seven-hour dehydration. Unmanageable dull and lifeless hair is a manifestation of dehydration. So protecting hair is important. Make sure that you drink adequate water throughout the day. Especially add a glass of water before sleeping to your diet. You can also keep a glass of water beside your bedside and gulp it down if you happen to wake up at night.
- In addition to drinking an adequate amount of water, you can use a moisturizing leave-in conditioner for your hair. Especially if your hair is curly, either with a spritz of water or with a leave-in conditioner, make sure to seal in the moisture.
- Tying your hair in a tight bun while sleeping causes a lot of damage and breakage. If you sport a braid or bun, take time to rebraid or re-bun after detangling and combing your hair. If you are one who likes to maintain a natural look, try the pineapple hair tying technique to ensure that your hair has natural curls. To preserve your stretched style, you can also tie your hair loosely with a scarf. In this way, you can be protecting hair during the night.
- Sleeping on a silk or satin pillowcases can reduce frizz considerably. This is because silk and satin are natural fibers and cause very little friction between the hair strands. Alternatively, you can also tie a silk or satin scarf around your head and protecting hair from abrasion and overnight dryness.
