Default What do you do with your hair when you sleep at night?

I pretty much just put a silk scarf over my head and go to bed, but I notice that when I wake up my ends get somewhat tangled and I think the way I wear my hair to sleep is the cause of it. So this leads me to ask you what you do with your hair when you sleep.

I moisturize and braid my hair. After, I seal with shea butter, clip my braids up, and put on my scarf.

Sounds good. I suck at braiding, but I guess they don't have to be neat. I just need to do something so that my ends stay moisturized. I have shea butter so I may try what you do. Thank you .

I just moisturize, seal with oil and put on a satin bonnet.

Do you wrap your hair? If not that could be why your hair gets tangled.

Sometimes I'll moisturize before putting on my scarf/bonnet.

No. I guess tangled isn't the best word. It's more like my ends aren't retaining the moisture that I put on them before I go to bed. When I wake up the next morning my ends have been feeling dry lately.

I voted other because I have to add that I apply growth aids and moisturize and then I'll cornrow or plait my hair before I put on satin bonnet.

I usually just put my hair in a bun and put a scarf over it. That way I can just take the scarf off in the morning and go straight to work.

Default Re: What do you do with your hair when you sleep at night?

I'm liking a lot of the tips I'm hearing. I don't think I'll just throw my scarf on my head before I go to bed anymore. I'll either make sure to twist, braid, or bun my hair before hand. I actually just got finished braiding my hair into three braids, then I pinned them up to my head and scarved it. Hopefully my ends will retain some moisture in the morning. I'll let everyone know how it turned out .

Moisturize (if needed) then pin curl with bobby pins (ends tucked under and not touching pin) or braid and tucked under. Then cover with silk scarf.

I think this method is indeed better. before I started seperating my hair and applying mosturizer, i would apply product all at one time as if I was putting my hair in a ponytail . So mainly the outside perimeter of my hair was being mosturized but not the crown and middle area..which is actually the shortest and driest part of my hair. now that I do it in sections, all parts of the hair are being properly moisturized. and my hair feels very moist in the morning.

It really depends on the style I'm in at the time. If it's in small twists, just cover it and go to sleep. If it's loose, I usually twist up into big twists, cover it, and go to sleep. The main reason I cover my hair is not for breakage or moisture or whatever, but to keep lint and stuff out of it.

I kindof did this. I braided my hair and then pinned up each braid as if it were a pin curl. You ladies give great advice. Definitely not going to neglect my ends anymore when I scarf up my hair.

If I wore my hair out in the day, I plait it then put on a plastic cap or Saran wrap or a plastic bag and go to bed. If my hair is already in plaits or twists, which is usually the norm, I put on my baggy and go to bed. Simple night regimen.
