If you struggle every morning to entangle your tresses, make them look lustrous or bouncy, then we have some tried and tested hacks to solve your hair woes! Instead of missing on your precious snooze time in the morning, spare a few minutes the night before and give these tips a try. They are easy, effective and won’t burn a hole in your pocket. Plus, you will wake up with gorgeous hair with almost zero effort. Here you go…
Sleep on a silk pillowcase
Ditch your regular cotton pillow and replace it with a silk one. Cotton pillows roughen up your hair cuticles, and in turn, entangle them. On the other hand, silk ones cause much less friction and help to maintain their natural sheen. P.S. – Silk is a skin-friendly fabric, and helps in preventing skin lines and wrinkles.
Get that bounce
If you wake up with flat and limp hair every morning that makes your mane look thinner, here’s how you can fix this. Before hitting the sack, apply little volumizing spray on your damp tresses and tie a high ponytail. Follow this with making a loose bun, and secure it with a few bobby pins, if required.
And you are all sorted for the next morning. Just run your fingers through your hair, or gently comb them. Get set to say hello to bouncy, frizz-free locks!
Sleep with a hair mask
Your hair requires nourishment, and there’s no better time to put on a hair mask than before going to bed. It gives your mane ample time to absorb all the nutrients, and nourish your scalp. Whether you are using a market one or a homemade hair mask, make sure to cover it with a shower cap.
You can make one of your own by mixing 4 tablespoons each of almond milk and egg yolk with two tablespoons of coconut oil. Apply this paste on your locks overnight, and wash it off with a mild shampoo next morning. For best results, apply this mask twice a week.
Don’t sleep with damp hair
Using dry shampoo a night before
Instead of using dry shampoo in the morning, try using it the night before you sleep. Just spray it on your hair and leave it overnight. Your hair will get ample time to absorb it and you won’t even need to dust off the residue in the morning.
