Unbreakable: Things You Shouldn’t Do At Night For Healthier Hair

By: Sana Passricha Here is what you need to do if you want healthier and split-end free locks in no time.

Tying up hair too tight

Tight buns and pony hair styles are pulling every single hair around your hairline and that can lead to a receding hair line. You may notice thinning hair around your temples, bangs and sideburns, and small frizzy hairs around your hair line if you continue with this habit. Make your pony tail or bun loose and comfortable, and keep that hair where it belongs.

Sleeping with wet hair

It may seem alrighto, especially when you’re too tired to care. But sleeping with wet hair can leave your strands prone to breakage. That’s because wet hair is like a loosened spring, and tossing and turning will lead to breakage. So give your hair plenty of time to air dry before hopping into bed.

Skipping on brushing

Everyone knows the old advice to brush your hair hundred times a day. While that might not be completely necessary, you should give your hair a once over before bed. Use a brush with natural bristles or a wide-tooth comb. Brush your hair from root to tip for several minutes. This will help distribute your natural scalp oils, so you’ll wake up with shiny, healthy hair.

Sleeping on any old pillow case

If you’ve been sleeping on the same grubby cotton pillowcases since childhood, then it may be time to update to something a bit better for your hair – namely silk. When you toss and turn, silk allows your hair to slide across the pillow with less fraying and frizz. Or wrap your hair in a silk scarf before bed to protect it from rubbing and keep your hair firmly in place while you sleep, no matter how much you move around.

Forgetting to condition

Apply some leave-in conditioner at night, and let it soak in while you sleep. Conditioning not only protects your hair, adds shine and increases growth, but it also prevents breakage and damage to the internal hair shaft. And that’s really the goal here, isn’t it? Source: idiva.com
