Hola Familia! We all love defined and voluminous curls, don't we? Yes, we do, but sometimes it can be hard to preserve those curls. Good news: You will not have to struggle any longer! We're dropping four tips on how to protect and preserve your curls overnight.
- Tip 1: Use a silk or satin scarf
Silk and satin are the best and most gentle materials to use on your hair. They do not dry your hair out; they keep it moisturized, soft, and shiny. Though a silk or satin scarf is enough, you can use a silk or satin pillowcase for extra protection. We all know scarves can fall off, especially if you're a wild sleeper.
- Tip 2: Refresh your hair before bed if necessary
If your curls are feeling a bit dry, try adding a hydrating cream or mist. You also want to make sure your ends are protected before wrapping your hair up. We recommend applying a small amount of length retention butter or oil on your ends. A little goes a long way, you do not need a lot.
- Tip 3: Put your hair into a loose bun or ponytail
Tight buns and ponytails are a big no no! They can cause breakage plus they're extremely uncomfortable. Opt for loose buns and ponytails, your hair will thank you.
- Tip 4: Pineapple your hair
For all of our lazy curlies, this one's for you. Throwing your hair into a pineapple and tying a scarf around it is the easiest method for protecting and preserving your curls. Just make sure that your hair is fully detangled before throwing it into a pineapple. Trust us when we say you do not want to wake up to tangled hair.
