Once upon a time, I would get up extra early to style my hair.
I would quietly tip-toe to the bathroom in order not to wake anyone else up, would plug in my straightening and curling iron, and would begin my morning duty of making my hair presentable.
After a few years of doing this I, A) realized that I was damaging my hair every single day, and B) I really would rather get those few extra minutes of sleep.
It was then that I began looking into uncovering overnight hair care beauty tips that would allow me to style my hair in my sleep.
After sharing my 5 top tricks to gorgeous hair every day, I thought it would be pretty great to expand on that and share a few tricks you can do while you SLEEP to have great hair every day.
Since finding these 10 fool-proof overnight hair tips, I have been able to hit my snooze button multiple times without the stress of messy frizzy hair, my hair has gotten healthier, and it’s officially grown longer than ever before.
10 Hair Tricks To Wake Up With Perfect Hair | Best Overnight Hair Tips
Get loose waves as you sleep simply by braiding your hair. Braids will encourage soft loose waves and also reduce tangles that typically occur as you sleep.
This will work especially well if you braid your hair when it’s slightly damp and allow it to dry fully overnight in the braid.
Overnight Conditioning Treatments
On a weekend, deep condition your hair overnight to help get super healthy and soft hair.
While this may not help you wake up with perfectly styled tresses, it will help reduce damage and split ends.
Use a Scrunchy
Rather than using an elastic band or hair tie, use a scrunchy to tie your hair back. Scrunchies are softer and come in a variety of fabrics.
Look for a velvet of silk scrunchy to reduce damage significantly.
Use a Silk Sash
Pull your hair away from your face with a silk sash. Silk is the best material on your hair as it’s so soft and does not snag.
By pulling the front pieces of hair away from your face, you’ll also reduce oiliness on those pieces and on your hairline.
Get a Silk Pillowcase
To further reduce damage and wake up with silky tangle-free hair, invest in a silk pillowcase.
Silk pillowcases are game-changers when it comes to hair health and tangles as they don’t rub or snag on your hair like usual cotton cases do.
If you want your hair to appear more styled then go out and grab yourself a pair of Conair Twist Curlers.
You can achieve beachy waves look all the way to a tightly curled look depending on how long you leave these curlers in.
I shared a full tutorial on how to get effortless damage-free beach waves here using the Conair twists!
Use a Serum BEFORE Bed
Wake up with soft shiny hair every day simply by adding a touch of serum to your hair ends before bed.
This will help seal your ends and reduce the look of fuzzy frizzy hair. My favourite serum is Biosilk Therapy Oil.
Use a Leave-in Conditioner
After showering, use a leave-in conditioner to help soften your hair and eliminate knots. A leave-in conditioner will make your hair more manageable.
It’s a 10 Silk Express Miracle Leave-in Conditioner is an excellent leave-in treatment.
