If you have been going to bed without even covering your tresses…..STOP. A consistent night time routine will not only preserve your style but also keep your hair on your head regardless of whether you’re rocking a TWA or waist length strands. This means you avoid breakage. How you care for your hair when you sleep is just as important as how you care for it when you’re awake.
You won’t have healthy hair by just using the best products. Like any other goal, it requires consistency and an overall change. We’ve put together these quick tips to keep your hair healthy around the clock and also make your mornings a lot easier.
Bring your hair back to life with a water based leave in and seal with a butter or light oil. You can hydrate it first with water/tea rinse but beware, this can sometimes cause your hair to frizz.
Also, in order to avoid squashing, try a twist/braid/band to avoid it.
By having a scalp massage 2/3 nights a week this increases blood circulation to the hair follicles as well as nourishing and strengthening the roots. You can use oils such as coconut, avocado, castor and olive which are great for penetrating the oils.
Alternatively Rosemary and Lavender essential oils boosts its effects and use your fingers or a scalp massager….there is also the option of hanging upside down to boost circulation.
