The Ultimate Guide to Sleeping Comfortably with Soft Locs

As someone with soft locs, it can be difficult to find the right way to sleep without causing damage or frizzing. You want to make sure that your locs stay intact while you’re getting some rest, but you also don’t want to feel uncomfortable in the process. In this blog post, we’ll share some tips and tricks on how to comfortably and safely sleep with soft locs.

Choose The Right Pillowcase

One of the first things you should consider when sleeping with soft locs is your pillowcase. Cotton pillowcases tend to absorb moisture from hair, which can lead to dryness and breakage over time. Instead, opt for a satin or silk pillowcase that will help retain moisture in your hair as well as prevent snagging or tugging on your locks during the night.

Silk or Satin Bonnet

If you prefer not changing out your pillow case then using a silk or satin bonnet might be a good option for you!. This will keep all of your hair contained allowing it move less while sleeping.

Braid Your Locs

Another way to protect your soft locs while sleeping is by braiding them into sections before bed. Not only does this help minimize snags and tangles overnight but it also keeps them neatly organized so they won’t get unruly by morning! Simply divide them into equal parts (depending on size) , braid each section tightly down towards its end until there are no loose ends left unbraided.

Wrap It Up!

Once all sections have been braided wrap around head moving clockwise starting at forehead ending at nape area.Lastly secure with bobby pins!

Avoid Tight Styles

It’s important not only think about what kind of styles work best for daily wear but also when going sleep! Wearing tight styles like buns or ponytails can cause tension on your locs, leading to breakage and damage over time. Instead, opt for looser styles such as a loose bun or braids which will help minimize any tugging or pulling.

Sleep with Your Hair Down

If you prefer not to braid your hair before bed, another option is to sleep with it down . This may be more comfortable depending on the length of your locks! To prevent tangling while sleeping use a silk/satin scrunchie loosely tied in low ponytail.

In conclusion, there are several ways you can maintain the integrity of your soft locs while getting some rest at night. By choosing the right materials (pillowcases) and opting for gentle styling methods like braiding or wearing a bonnet , you can ensure that your locks stay healthy and strong even during periods of extended rest.
