During our sleep our hair is not immune to damage. 🌙 Repetitive friction on the pillow as well as some bad habits like lying down with wet hair can break our hair fiber and make our hair dry and fragile.
Here are some things you can do to prevent this from happening:
👉 Brush your hair every night. Detangling your hair before going to bed not only removes the knots but also distributes the sebum over your lengths and rids them of the impurities accumulated during the day. An action that will strengthen them and make them brighter.
For fine, dry hair, we recommend using a nylon/boar bristle brush . For thick hair or hair that gets greasy quickly, we advise you to use a nylon bristle brush.
👉 Place a few drops of vegetable oil on your lengths before going to bed. This will allow you to have softer and healthier hair. You can use "Mon Huilette Hair", the serum you need to nourish and revitalize your hair. Also take a few minutes to massage your scalp to stimulate blood flow. A very beneficial action to accelerate hair growth and make it thicker.
👉 Make a protective hairstyle that will be very beneficial to protect your lengths. Before going to bed, make a flexible braid. Remember not to tighten the locks too much to let the hair breathe and then tie with a ribbon or a scrunchie rather than an elastic. You can also make a very high soft bun, on the top of your head.
👉 Do you know the Kardoune? It is a very long hand-woven silk fiber ribbon that comes from the Maghreb. It has the function of protecting the hair during the night and allows it to stay well hydrated. It is also known to straighten the hair in a natural way. To use it, you just have to make a low ponytail and wrap the ribbon around it so that it covers all your lengths then finish with a knot.
👉 Last little advice, think about your pillowcase. Yes, the latter can be harmful for your beautiful hair. Most often, our pillowcases are made of cotton, a fiber that will absorb moisture and sebum naturally present on our scalp. In addition, the hair will tangle much more easily on this type of material, the perfect combination to damage your hair quickly. So to remedy this, we prefer a silk or satin pillowcase. These fabrics do not absorb the water present in our hair and their smooth material allows the hair to glide smoothly without tangling.
By applying all its tips, your hair will be well protected during your sleep and will thus keep all its shine.
