You keep your curls moisturized all the time and never skip deep conditioning. You also apply the most appropriate products for your curls during the day, but did you know that your curly hair needs some pampering at night when you are sound asleep?
Find out how you can take care of your curls as you sleep.
Sleep on a Satin Pillowcase
If you have curly hair, sleeping on a cotton pillowcase can cause friction with your hair. Overnight, as the friction continues, you can look forward to frizzy hair in the morning. The best way to take care of your curls as you sleep is to switch your regular cotton pillowcase with a satin pillowcase.
A satin pillowcase reduces stress on your curls and can help protect your hair’s structure.
Choose the Most Appropriate Hairstyle
As you sleep with curly hair, you need to choose a hairstyle that depends on how you want your curls to look when you wake up. If you prefer to have voluminous natural curls in the morning, the pineapple hairstyle would be perfect for you; however, if you prefer to have more wavy curls as you wake up, you can try some braids by dividing your hair into different sections.
Use a Silk Headscarf or Bonnet
Using a silk headscarf or bonnet is another great way to take care of your curls as you sleep.
Taking care of your curly hair may be tough during the day, but it can be a breeze if you take the right steps at night.
