So you slept on a satin pillowcase, tied the pineapple curly hairstyle, and did not forget the satin bonnet to keep your curls safe. But as soon as you woke up, you realized your curls were stiff.
How do you revive your curls after a long night?
Let’s jump into the ways to revive your curls after sleeping.
Start By Dampening Your Curls With Water
To get started with reviving your curly hair, start by dampening your curls with water. You can use a spray bottle to dampen your curls.
Apply Leave-in Conditioner or Styling Product
Once you dampen your hair, you need to apply a leave-in conditioner or styling product by sectioning your hair out. This step will help you reduce frizz and define undefined curls.
As you apply the product, focus more on the strands and not the roots, as your scalp tend to sweat while you sleep, so it is already loaded with moisture. However, your hair strands need more hydration following a long night.
Scrunch for Curl Definition
Following the application of a leave-in conditioner or styling product, don’t forget to scrunch your curls for enhanced curl definition. As you scrunch your hair, let your curls air dry and use your fingers or a wide-toothed comb to detangle your curls.
Once your hair is nourished and dried, don’t forget to apply serum to give the extra shine and bounce to your curly hair following a long night.
Reviving your curls is critical after sleeping, as friction against the pillowcase or bonnet can leave your curls dry and frizzy. Use these steps to revive your curls after sleeping and enjoy a great hair day.
