Haircare Whilst You Sleep...

I love a good snooze, and as I've got a bit older, I really love a good nap. But I hate it when my hair tangles up (I sleep hard!) If you struggle with the same, here are a few simple steps to avoid a big birdnest barnet.
If you got long hair, and tend to wear it up whilst sleeping, try loose pigtails rather than a ponytail. Pigtails can be loosely tied either side of the head, below the ear. Lot more comfy than a ponytail and less pressure against your hair and scalp reducing tension and breakage. You could even plait the pigtails for an easy beach wave look the next day.
Give your hair a brush before bed to remove any knots and tangles. I tend to use a Tangle Teezer for this. You don't have to do the 100 brushstrokes before bedtime, but brushing before bed can help remove hairspray, or product you may have applied through the day and avoid a nasty bedhead look.
Without wanting to be too much of a princess about it, sleeping on a silk or satin pillowcase can help avoid catching hair on rougher cases, causing breakage and damage. Cotton cases can also absorb your hairs moisture, so definitely worth investing in some new pillowcases to rest your head on.
And of course, pamper it. Leaving a conditioning mask on overnight can really help nourish and recover damaged and dry hair. With the current blustery UK weather, and heating playing havoc with skin, don't forget your hair will need a little extra. Especially if you regularly colour or heat style.
Sweet Dreams!
