Get Fabulous Hair While You Sleep

Chances are, when you hear the words “bedtime routine” you probably don’t think about your hair, but the truth is, your hair can use this downtime to restore itself as you sleep! Because we consider ourselves serious hair care enthusiasts, today we’ve decided to offer our top tips to improving your bedtime hair routine. Try these tips and you’ll experience better hair days in no time!

Tip #1: Hydrate
Use a hydrating hair masque to moisturize and soften your hair while getting a restful night’s sleep. Kerastase has options that are designed to help repair, protect and deeply moisturize dry, damaged hair. Evenly distribute the product from scalp to ends on dry or damp hair. Leave in overnight, and in the morning, rinse and style as desired.

Tip #2: Heat recovery
If you regularly use heat to style your hair, consider using an overnight reparative masque. These formulas are designed to mend damaged strands, replenish moisture, and smooth and seal the cuticle, while helping protect against future damage. Use as needed at bedtime on clean, damp hair. Dispense 1-3 pumps into the palm of your hand and work product first from midshaft to ends, then from root to ends. Style as usual in the morning.

Tip #3: Upgrade your pillowcase 
While it might seem like a bit of an investment, trading up to a high-quality silk pillowcase will do wonders for your hair (and skin!). Silk is a much gentler fabric than cotton, and the smaller fibers of the material will help prevent damage to your delicate ends- especially if you toss and turn at night.

Tip #4: Style overnight
Try this trick for a gorgeous second-day look. Twist your hair into a loose bun and secure it with a scrunchie before going to bed. In the morning, shake out hair, mist with a light styling spray, and tousle with fingers for loose, effortless waves.

By taking a few extra steps and incorporating simple hair care into your bedtime beauty routine, you can ensure that your hair is protected overnight so it can stay long, strong, and flyaway-free! Soon you’ll enjoy a good hair day every day!
