5 Ways To Protect Your Hair Whilst You Sleep

Whilst you’re catching up on your beauty sleep, this is a great time for your hair to do some magic and protect itself, so why not try our top 5 tips before you catch your zzz’s so you can wake up with gorgeous locks? Whether you are wanting to make your soft waves last one more day or want to avoid those annoying tangles, we can help…


Brush It Out 

If it's not already part of your bedtime routine, make brushing your hair before you go to sleep part of it. Brushing your hair thoroughly clears the hair of any knots that have built up during the day that may get worse if you are leaving them overnight. 

The Qute Smoothing Brush is your must-have hair brush. The super strength flexible nylon and boar bristles allows the brush to flow through your hair to eliminate any tough knots without any damage.

Get Braiding 

Putting your hair into two plaits can save you some serious time in the morning by ensuring your hair is not a tangled mess when you wake up. Or if you’re feeling more adventurous why not try some French braids? 

And what's better than waking up with tangle free hair? Waking up with lovely soft waves of course, and this trick will allow just that… you’re welcome. 💃


Thoroughly Dry 

When your hair is wet, it is more prone to damage and breakage which then leads to frizziness and split ends… no thank you! So, it's important to make sure that you leave enough time between showering and going to bed to let your hair dry naturally. Or if you are wanting to blow dry your hair the GHD Flight® Travel Hair Dryer Gift Set is fabulous but just remember heat protectant is a must. 

The Remi Cachet Miracle Mist is a great for your natural hair and hair extensions as it contains heat protection to help protect against damage from harsh temperatures so you can use your favourite styling tools with confidence, so make sure this is added to your basket.

Invest In A Satin Pillow 

For Disney Princess vibes (and for protecting your hair of course) a satin or silk pillow is your new best friend to work wonders on your hair. Cotton pillowcases can cause pulling on the hair, whereas satin can work to reduce any static and keep it gorgeous and smooth. 

Also you can feel of the silky soft fabric on your skin whilst your hair enjoys a break *relaxation mode on*.


Apply A Treatment 

If you’re like us, you love a good quality and nourishing hair treatment to bring your hair back to life and give it some extra TLC after styling. 

Applying a treatment, such as the Remi Cachet Hair Oil, and covering the head with a shower cap is great for your hair as the time you’re asleep is an optimum time for your hair to receive nourishment. Then simply wash the treatment when you wake up for instant silky soft and revived hair!
