The Top 4 Tips to Sleep with Straightened Hair (And How to Maintain It)

It can be frustrating to go to bed with your hair straightened only to find your hair curled and frizzy the next morning. These are some easy home hacks that will keep your hair straight for the night. The best part? These tips are easy, painless, and cost-effective.

1. Get a good dry shampoo

Do you have oily hair? You should consider buying a dry shampoo that is able to absorb sweat and excess oil overnight. You want to be able to wash your hair every morning without having it rinsed with water.

How to Apply Dry Shampoo

  1. Dry shampoo should be used between hair washes. It is best to use it on second-day hair so that it can absorb excess oils.
  2. Divide your hair with a wide-toothed brush or a comb. Keep your eyes on the greasy parts.
  3. Spray the dry shampoo onto your roots by placing the can 8 inches from your head.
  4. Massage your scalp gently and allow the oil to seep into your scalp.

2. Say Goodbye to Hair Bands/Elastics

If you’ve had a long and tiring day, the joy of having your hair tied up in a high ponytail or bun can be tempting. Hair elastics and hair bands can cause dents to your poker-straight hair. Flip your hair upside down on the pillow to keep it from slipping onto your neck or face as you sleep.

3. Use A Good Hair Oil

This tip is perfect for dry hair. You must ensure that your hair is nourished, soft and hydrated all the time. To maintain your hair’s shine overnight, you can use a few drops of any light hair oil. Pay attention to the ends of your hair, as they dry faster. Avoid water-based products like sprays as they can cause straight hair to curl.

4. Buy a High-Quality Silk/Satin Scarf

A silk scarf or silk sleeping cap wrapped around your head can help prevent your hair from getting frizzy after a night of constant friction due to sleeping on cotton pillows. If you don’t want to wear a scarf or cap, you can use a silk/satin pillowcase.

You need to follow a specific nighttime routine to keep your hair straight. If you have a hard time sleeping with your hair open, you can follow the next section to secure your hair.

How to wrap your hair while sleeping (and keep it straight)

  2. Your hair should be combed and rolled into a loose ponytail at the top. You should not tie your hair with clips or scrunchies as they can damage straight hair.
  3. Make a triangle out of your silk/satin scarf by joining the ends.
  4. Place the long end of the triangle at the nape and neck.
  5. Tie the scarf in a double knot by bringing the three ends of the scarf up to your forehead. Your bun should be securely tucked into the scarf.

If your hair is short, flip it up before you wrap it in a silk scarf. This will give your hair more volume.
