A good night’s sleep is vital for us all, and it’s said that we spend one-third of our lives asleep (although it never seems enough). When you think about it, that’s a significant period of time our hair spends squashed on our pillows. Have you ever taken the time to think about the impact this has on your hair? A bad nighttime routine or lack can either make or break your strands (literally). But as always we’ve got you covered on nighttime tips for growth and strength.
Whether it’s a bonnet, headscarf or pillowcase you want something silk or satin to prevent your hair from losing moisture. Curly and Afro-textured hair strands tend to also snag and get tangled on traditional cotton pillowcases, however with this protective measure from Slip you can toss and turn and not worry about breakage.

Natural Moisturising Spray
It’s important to replace the moisture your hair loses during the day at bedtime. This helps to ensure you minimise breakage. Focus on your ends and use a moisturiser of your choice, whether it’s a mist, moisturiser or leave-in conditioner. The hydrating hair mist from afrocenchix will moisturise your hair and revive your curls for the morning after.
Rosemary Mint Scalp & Hair Strengthening Oil
Our bodies work the hardest during the night including your scalp and hair follicles. Use this opportunity to pamper your hair with oils and scalp treatments to get the full benefits of the product ingredients. This versatile oil from Mielle organics nourishes your hair follicles, smooths split ends and is excellent for scalp massages to promote hair growth.
I know we’ve spoken about protective styling before but it really is one of the keys to keeping your hair healthy and strong. Protective styling helps reduce tangling and keeps your hair soft. You can throw your hair in a pineapple, or create sections and put it into some braids or twists, whatever takes your fancy.
So when you’re getting ready for bed and finishing off your skin care routine, don’t forget to give your hair the same TLC.
