Wake up to Tangle free hair Tips;
Moisturize! Moisturize! Moisturize!
Avoid waking up to tangled, frizzy hair by applying your preferred moisturizer before wearing your satin bonnets or scarf. A satin bonnet, scarf or pillowcase is a must have for a healthy night routine, helps preserve your style and keeps your hair moisturized.
Use a satin bonnet, scarf or pillowcase.
Cotton scarf and pillowcase absorb moisture from your hair and create friction that can lead to tangles and breakage. Wake up to moisturized, soft and tangle free hair by using either a satin bonnet, scarf or pillowcase.
If you have been wearing your hair out, moisturize then braid, twist or wear a bun. The styles shouldn’t be tightly held; you can’t afford a headache & thinning edges. Once you’ve installed your protective style, wear a satin bonnet, scarf or sleep on a satin pillowcase if you don’t feel comfortable covering your hair to sleep. You can also do the banding method for more length.
Always detangle properly on wash day and before installing any style to avoid a tangled ball of hair. Also, if you notice your hair is tangled before bed, moisturize and use your fingers or wide tooth comb to gently detangle.
