Sleep. It’s something we long for, lust after, and ultimately avoid. But when it comes to looking and feeling great, catching some z’s is hands-down the best way to do it. Sort of. While you’re off in the land of dreams, you actually could be sending your delicate strands into the land of nightmares.
Seemingly harmless habits like snoozing with wet hair, using cotton pillowcases, and over-brushing, can cause tangles, breakage, and even mold (gross). We got the skinny from three top stylists to help right all our hair-care wrongs.
MAXIMIZE YOUR EVENINGS
Beat the morning rush by thinking ahead—not scrambling in the AM. “Wash, dry, and style your hair before bed. If you have smooth, sleek hair, do a wrap starting at the nape and wrap your hair around the head, securing with bobby pins,” shares Rocky Vitelli, global artist for Farouk Systems. “If you have curly or wavy hair, twist your hair nice and tight into a topknot, securing on the highest point of the head. Use a fabric scrunchie to secure it instead of elastics.” The next morning, simply unravel and apply a little serum to style.
