How to Achieve a Comfortable Sleep with Sew-In Extensions

Are you tired of waking up with your sew-in extensions tangled and feeling uncomfortable? Worry no more! In this blog post, we will be discussing how to sleep with sew-in extensions without ruining them or losing sleep.

Choose the right pillowcase

The material of your pillowcase can make all the difference when it comes to sleeping with sew-in extensions. Silk or satin pillowcases are ideal as they create less friction between your hair and the fabric. This allows for a smoother surface, which reduces tangles and frizz. Not only do these materials prevent damage to your hair, but they also have anti-aging properties by reducing wrinkles on your face.

Alternative options

If you don’t have access to silk or satin pillowcases, consider wrapping your head in a scarf made from these fabrics before going to bed. Alternatively, you can use cotton t-shirts instead of traditional cotton sheets for similar results.

Braid or wrap your hair

Before heading off to bed, ensure that you braid or wrap your sew-ins securely. This will help keep them in place while preventing tangling and pulling during sleep. Choose a braiding pattern that keeps tension off of the scalp but doesn’t pull on the weave tracks too much.

For those who prefer not to braid their hairstyles before going to bed, wrapping is an excellent option. Start at one side of the head by using large sections of hair wrapped around each other until reaching down below ear level then tying it into place securely using an elastic bandage roll.

Alternative options

If braids or wraps aren’t suitable for you because they cause discomforts like headaches while sleeping try creating two-strand twists in sections instead; this way provides some flexibility allowing movement during rest periods without worrying about damaging strands within weaves/extensions.

Avoid Moisture & Friction

We’ve already discussed how satin or silk pillowcases can reduce friction, but it’s also essential to avoid moisture. Moisture can lead to tangling and matting of the extensions.

Make sure your hair is completely dry before heading off to bed; damp hair will create more problems than necessary. You might want to use a dry shampoo or similar product to absorb any oils from your scalp that may contribute to oil buildup in the weave tracks – anything that will keep those sew-ins looking fresh for as long as possible.

Alternative options

Consider using a sleeping bonnet at night that holds all your braids together while keeping them in place without roughing up strands within weaves/extensions for added protection during sleep periods.

In conclusion, sleeping with sew-in extensions doesn’t have to be challenging if you follow these simple steps:

1. Choose the right pillowcase or wrap your head in silk/satin scarf.
2. Braid or wrap your sew-ins securely.
3. Avoid moisture & friction on the weave tracks by using a dry shampoo and/or sleeping bonnet for added protection.

By taking care of your extensions properly, you’ll ensure they remain healthy and intact throughout their lifespan while getting some much-needed restful nights’ sleep!
