How To Take Care of Hair?

The best hair care routine will also fail if we don’t take proper care while sleeping. It is only logical because we sleep 6-8 hours a day and it can make a big difference. Here are some tips to ensure that your hair can be less tangled while sleeping.


Let’s start with the basics;

1. Do Not Sleep With Open Hair.

Never use rubber or elastic bands. At least try using soft scrunchie while sleeping.

2. Make Very Loose French Braid.

A French peak will put pressure around your head instead of resting in the same place overnight, which will help to avoid breaking down.

3. A Humid Room Is Ideal.

A humid room is good to prevent hair loss.

4. Loose ‘Pineapple’ Bun.

For curly hairy people, it is perfect to secure hair in a perfect, loose top knot as it protects moisture in hair and prevents breakage.

5. Hair Wrap.

If you lose too much hair, it will be very well protected by wrapping silky hair by putting your hair in a loose bun.
