Tips for Getting a Good Night’s Sleep with Curly Weave

As someone who has been wearing weaves for years, I know firsthand how difficult it can be to get a good night’s sleep with a curly weave. Tossing and turning during the night can easily ruin your hairstyle, leaving you with tangles and flat spots that take forever to fix.

Fortunately, there are several techniques you can use to protect your curls while you snooze. Here are some tips on how to sleep with a curly weave:

Prep Your Hair Before Bed

Before you hit the hay, make sure your hair is properly moisturized. Apply a leave-in conditioner or hair oil throughout your strands to keep them soft and hydrated overnight. You may also want to consider putting your hair in large twists or braids before bed; this will help prevent tangling and frizzing while you sleep.

Avoid Cotton Pillowcases

Cotton pillowcases are notorious for causing friction against both natural and synthetic hair types – leading to breakage, split ends, and loss of curl definition over time! It is highly recommended opting for silk or satin pillowcases instead since they’re much gentler on textured hair types like yours!

Use a Scarf or Bonnet

Covering up at bedtime isn’t just cozy – it’s protective too! Using an old school bonnet made from silk material helps reduce friction as well as keeping off lint from getting into those adorable locks!
Silk scarves would serve even better if wrapped around the head like traditional African head wraps because they allow more airflow thus reduces sweating which causes itching

Avoid Sleeping With Wet Hair

It may be tempting after taking down twists or braids but sleeping with wet (or damp) weave spells disaster!. Not only will this lead to frizzier curls come morning but also bad odor emanating from trapped moisture on the scalp which makes it a breeding ground for bacteria.

Avoid Touching Your Hair

While this can be difficult, try not to touch your hair too much while you sleep. This will help preserve the shape and definition of your curls and prevent breakage caused by friction or excessive manipulation as you shift around in bed.

Following these tips should help you wake up with beautiful, bouncy curls every morning! Remember that keeping your hair hydrated and protected at night is just as important as caring for it during the day. Happy sleeping!
