The Ultimate Guide for Sleeping with Straightened Curly Hair

If you’re someone who has naturally curly hair, then you know the struggle of keeping your curls intact. And if you’ve recently straightened your curly hair and want to keep it looking sleek even while sleeping, we’ve got some tips and tricks for you. In this blog post, we’ll be discussing how to sleep with straightened curly hair.

Preparing Your Hair Before Bedtime

Before hitting the sheets, there are a few things that you can do to prepare your hair for bed. These steps will help ensure that your hairstyle remains intact as much as possible.

Brush Your Hair Properly

One of the most important things when it comes to preparing your straightened curly hair for bedtime is brushing properly. Gently brush out any tangles using a wide-tooth comb or paddle brush. Start at the ends of your hair and work upwards towards the roots in small sections.

Apply A Leave-In Conditioner

To keep nourishing and hydrating those locks while they rest overnight, applying leave-in conditioner is essential before going to sleep.

Use A Silk Pillowcase

Another tip is to use a silk pillowcase instead of cotton ones since silk causes less friction between it and one’s strands thus preventing frizzing.

Sleeping Styles For Straightened Curly Hair

After preparing our locks before bedtime following these guidelines above, remember that how one chooses to lie down on their pillows can also have an impact on their hairstyle’s longevity! Here are some appropriate sleeping styles:

The Pineapple Method

The pineapple method involves gathering all loose strands together on top of one’s head into a high ponytail or bun secured with gentle elastic bands so that when lying down during sleep time, curls won’t get crushed against bedding surfaces causing unwanted indentations which consequently might lead to flyaways.

Low Ponytail

A low ponytail can be created by tying hair at the nape of your neck with a soft, silk scrunchie. This style works well for those who like their straightened curls to look sleek and smooth in the morning while still adding volume.

Braids or Twists

Lastly, if you have thicker strands that tend to get frizzy overnight, braiding them into one large braid or two-strand twists before going to bed could help keep everything looking neat when waking up.

Morning Hair Care Routine For Straightened Curly Hair

After waking up from a good night’s sleep, it’s important not to jump right into washing your hair just yet. Here are some steps you should take first:

Give Your Locks A Quick Brushing:

Gently brush through any knots that may have formed during sleep time using either fingers or wide-tooth comb gently so as not to undo all the hard work done the night before!

Apply Heat Protectant:

Before using any heat tools (such as flat irons) on straightened curls, make sure that they’re adequately protected from high temperatures by applying heat protectant products specifically designed for this purpose.

In conclusion

Keeping one’s locks looking great throughout sleep time isn’t rocket science; following these guidelines will surely help! By preparing our hair properly before bedtime and choosing appropriate sleeping styles such as pineapple method, low ponytail, or braids/twists we’ll be able to maintain our lovely style. Lastly being mindful enough always ensures we aren’t doing more harm than good whenever we wake up in the morning. Remember also always relax and enjoy your beauty rest!
