You want your edges, or nah?
Sorry, I had to do it! We are all about our healthy hair journey right? You take all that time washing, deep conditioning, detangling and moisturizing your hair, but sometimes we are too tired to protect it while we sleep. Newsflash… don’t skip the last step!
Here are a few tips to keep your hair healthy while you get your beauty sleep.
1. Keep your hair moisturized. Spritz some water on it before bed to keep it moisturized through the night. Yeah, by now you are tired of hearing this right? Moisture, moisture, moisture (I don’t know why marsha, marsha, marsha just popped in my head from the Brady bunch) but I kind of like that. Don’t let Marsha get all the attention at the party because you forgot to keep your hair moisturized like Marsha, and her hair is now on FLEEK!
2. Pineapple your hair. You worked way to hard on that twist out, braid out, or rod set for it to go to waste in one day! Pineapple your hair (under your satin bonnet or with your satin Pillowcase) so that your curls last more than just one day. I live for 4th and 5th day hair!
3. Sleep on a satin pillowcase or in a satin bonnet. This is the most important tip right here! Cotton pillowcases will snatch your edges left and right and cause major breakage. I know we all had that one day where we were just too tired to tie our hair up and took one for the team. Well let that be the only time you do that. Cotton pillowcases wick the moisture from your hair which is bound to cause breakage, of which we do not want! So this step is a must it cannot be skipped, you cannot pass go or collect your $200!
You can also apply all of these tips for your child’s hair as well. It’s important to also protect your little ones hair just like yours.
