Top 6 Natural Hair essentials for a weekend sleepover

Since most of us are on #stayhome rule and travel restrictions, sleepovers have become hard to come by but this pandemic will pass and we will get our sleepovers back. Thus, this article is a sleepover prep for mane embracers who prioritize giving their hair some TLC.

The sleepover can be at your friends’, relative or your man and just because it’s a weekend sleepover, it doesn’t mean a halt on your hair routine. You got to keep your hair lush and healthy.

Who knew you would need hair essentials for sleepovers? As you pack your outfits and make up kit add hair essentials too. You don’t want your hair matting and breaking, unless you are on a protective style which needs moisturizing too. My point is there’s no way you are avoiding a hair essential kit.

Well, let’s get down to the sleepover essentials.

Spray bottle/moisturizer.
This has to be my first because moisturizing your hair is important and I don’t mean an empty spray bottle. Nah, have your moisturizing ingredients enough for the weekend. Keep your hair moisturized and looking gorgeous.

You will need a sealant after moisturizing your hair and that’s why you need to carry your favorite sealants; oils or butters whichever works best for your hair.

Satin bonnet.
Unless your host owns satin pillowcases, you’ll have to carry your satin bonnets. And if your host, just like me owns satin pillowcase but doesn’t like the taste and touch of someone else’s hair, bring your bonnet.

Lastly, if your man loves sliding his fingers in your hair just have him purchase satin/silk pillowcases, say no to tangles, knots or matted hair. You all know detangling such is the worst nightmare.

Bobby pins, hair bands & hair accessories
You never know when you need hair pins/ bands and how mysteriously they disappear will have you carrying extra ones. These are essential when styling your hair and for us who can’t sleep with our hair all over the place and need to hold and tuck it. Accessorize while stepping out, your mane got to look good.

Shower cap.
You’ll definitely need a shower, won’t you?

Styling gel & Edge brush / Toothbrush.
While packing a toothbrush for your teeth kindly remember your edges toothbrush as well. I know most of us use toothbrush to lay our edges and we will do it shamelessly at your place. Pack your styling gel for gorgeous styles and if you have to lay the edges, don’t forget your edge brush lol.

I hope this helps you prep for your coming sleepovers. What’s your sleepover must have tools and products?

I did a thing guys. Your girl is on a mission to try new styles and up her styling game. Hello Mane Embracers, I hope your hair is growing and skin glowing. Welcome to my blog and be sure to keep it for healthy hair care tips and tricks. Flat twist-out Afro I did another thing, installed flat twists as my low manipulation style for a week or so and the flat twist-out turned to an Afro. I love wearing my Afro or may be I love it because my styling game is 👎👎👎. Either way we all agree that afros are cute. Bun & bangs. First, I uploaded a tutorial on Facebook and Instagram, be sure to check out. It’s an easy to achieve style. Got no time to figure out how style your hair? Well, this style is for you. Bun & flat twist Same bun but flat twisted the bangs & the look gave me some ‘ hey there, praise and worship & good gal vibe.’ It’s an official look, easy to achieve style & a less than 5 minutes style. Low puff & twists. I live for high puffs but side puffs are okay too. I loved the look & the twists were, “hide my forehead thing.” Hello fellow gals with a big forehead & heart. Twists & tucked twists. Turned the low puff to chunky twists and pinned them. For a moment I thought I had locs but they don’t look like locs though. The IT style. How gorgeous is this style? I would love to know which of the styles is your favorite.
