Sleep is good for the body and a lot of ladies have it all mapped out when it comes to the amount of sleep needed for the body.
But when it comes to the hair, do you know how your hair should be before you go to bed. There are certain things you shouldn’t do to the hair before going to bed.
While you care for your body, ensure to always care for your hair as a lady.
Here are 5 things you should never do to your hair before bed;
Sleeping On Any Old Pillowcase
Cotton pillowcases are known to absorb the oils from your hair and skin, which can leave them dry, brittle, and prone to breakage. It is better to get a silk pillowcase which is much better for your hair than a cotton one. This makes for healthy and shiny hair.
Not Tying Up Your Hair
When you go to bed without tying up your hair it actually does more harm than good. Simply use a silk scarf to tie your hair before going to bed.
Sleeping with your hair down can result in tangling which in turn leads to hair breakage.
Using Metal Or Rubber Hair Ties
When you do tie up your tresses for the night, what you use to wrap it up makes a difference. Learn to stay away from metal and rubber hair ties.
Sleeping On Wet Hair
Do not sleep with your hair wet. No matter how tired you are, ensure to always dry your hair before going to bed.
If you must go to bed without letting your hair fully dry, it is better to put in a super hydrating hair mask or conditioner before heading to sleep.
Sleeping In A Dry Room
Cross ventilation and an airy room are not just needed for the body/health but also needed for the hair. Sleeping in a room that is dry affects the moisture of the hair.
Never go to bed with central heat on. A dry environment is not favorable for the hair.
