Hair Care Mistakes You Might Be Making Before Going To Bed
Honestly, do you even care to brush your hair before hitting the bed after a tiring day? After returning home, all you want to do is slip your pyjamas on, tie your tangled hair in a loose bun, and crash on the bed. But what happens to your hair after that?
Why do we just restrict our hair care regimen to the mornings? Probably, because we are unaware of how our sleeping time works towards improving the health of our hair. So, here we are with some common hair care mistakes that women must avoid making before going to bed.
- Really, ladies, do we need to emphasize on why you should not sleep with wet hair? No matter how hectic your life is, do not wash your hair and doze off just to get a little more sleep the next morning. Your hair is most fragile when wet and constant rubbing while sleeping is a red sign! Plus, you're also prone to a sore throat and scalp infection.
- Sleeping with hair clipped tightly is a strict no. If you want your hair to be off your face while you're busy dreaming, use a cotton band.
- While the norm is to brush your hair before going to sleep, ideally you should be massaging it too. This helps the natural oils distribute evenly, thereby nourishing the strands.
- Sleeping on dirty pillowcases probably tops the list of hair care don'ts. That case which looks quite clean to naked eyes is actually carrying bacteria, dead skin cells, and oils from your skin. So it is advisable to change it every week.
- We understand that you hate keeping your hair tied while sleeping, but that's what you should be doing ideally for the good health of your tresses. A loose top bun or a braid is what you need to stop waking up to broken hair strands everywhere!
- We know that most oil brands say that you should leave your hair oiled overnight, but don't do it. Letting the oil stay for around two hours is more than enough.
If you, too, are guilty of these hair care mistakes, mend your ways immediately and see the difference in the health of your mane :)
