How do you go to sleep with curly hair? Have you just spent all evening on your hair washing routine? From shampoo to gel, you've blown your entire playlist while singing. And then it's bedtime again… sleeping upright is even a consideration that you make. Recognizable? What's the best way so that your beautiful curls don't sit like a bird's nest when you wake up the next morning. In this blog I will explain a number of different methods so that you can find out what works best for you. So, curly balls pay attention!
The easiest way is to sleep on a satin pillowcase. It prevents your hair from chafing against the fabric and breaking off. It also prevents fluff and tangles and knots. Another advantage is that it is also good for your skin, it can even reduce acne or oily skin. So two birds with one stone.
The name says it all, you will look like a pineapple. You make a high ponytail all the way on top of your head and you make sure that your elastic band is loosely around it. Preferably use a scrunchie and no normal elastic, this way you avoid getting weird kinks in your hair and your hair will break off.
Do you have short hair that doesn't fit in a high ponytail on your head? Then grab everything that does fit in it and loosen your elastic around it and secure the rest with a hair clip.
This is therefore a perfect way if you have just spent your entire evening on your hair routine as described above. Make sure you've gone through all the steps until you're at the grind of cast out of your hair. You do not do this step. You can recognize a gel cast by the hard curls. You make a pineapple and you go to sleep, the next morning you knead the cast out.
A bonnet is a hat that you put on your curls before going to sleep. This one is made of satin and has about the same effect as a satin pillowcase. The only difference is that when wearing a bonnet, your curls stay in the 'chain'. They can't go either way.
Never, ever go to sleep with wet hair. Your hair is at its most fragile when it's wet and it breaks down much faster. So always make sure that your hair is 100% dry before you go to sleep.
