CurlyTD Shows Off Her ‘Bedroom’ Hair

By January 27th, 20218 Comments

I thought I’d share my nightly routine with you and your readers. Hopefully it works for someone else as well!

My Night-time routine:

Step 1: When I get home, I instantly put my hair up into a loose, messy bun

Step 2: When I’m ready to get ready for the night I let down my bun and let my hair loose CurlyTD Shows Off Her 'Bedroom' HairCurlyTD Shows Off Her 'Bedroom' Hair

Step 3: I take out my hair tie, satin scarf and hair bonnet.

Step 4: I separate my hair into two (2) sections making loose pigtails.

Step 5: I take one (1) section of my hair and start to apply Certified Organic Virgin Coconut Oil to the entire section. FYI: I use the Omega Nutrition brand

Step 6: I take more coconut oil and concentrate on my ends.

Step 7: I place a hair tie around the section of hair I’m working on and pick up more coconut oil and apply it to the crown of my head and hair line.

Step 8: I then repeat the same steps on the other side of head until I have two loose pigtails. CurlyTD Shows Off Her 'Bedroom' Hair

Step 9: I then put on my satin scarf.

Step 10: Lastly, I put on a hair bonnet since my satin scarf will usually fall off!

Next Day Hair…Actually Day 5 Hair!!

That’s it! It usually takes me 5 minutes, if even that!

I’ve found this to be the best way to preserve my hairstyles. Following this nightly routine gives me 5-7 day hair without re-twisting 🙂

FYI- I twist my hair with either Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk or just water & Organic Coconut Oil ( I picked that up from stalking Zhara’s Fotki!). I have very thick hair but I’ve found this routine helps to hold my style despite not using a gel.

I hope this helps another curly girl out there!

    Thanks for posting this. One of the big frustrations I’m having with my hair right now is having to re-set my hair every night. I can have a really good hair day, but my hair gets totally smushed overnight. When my hair gets longer I can probably do buns or tie it back. But until then I don’t think anything can be done but redo my curly fro, bantu knots, or banding each night.

    LOL! Maria I’ll get you a pair of my earrings and send em to ya!

    Prettysunshyne- You’re welcome! I have a bunch of bonnets I picked up @ the dollar store, lol!

    FlowerChild- These pics were actually all taken on 4th day hair.

    Afrocentric Mocha- I don’t think I’d get the same results sleeping with my hair uncovered. I could probably get 2nd day hair out of it, but not a week. It would start to get frizzy. But that’s just my hair! You could try it! Let us know if you do 🙂

    HTH!

    Thanks for sharing. Do you think your results would be as good if you did everytning as stated, but slept w/ hair uncovered on a satin pillow?

    I would have liked to see next day hair so we can see how well the style is preserved.
