1. Silky smooth strands
Massage and apply deep-conditioning hair treatments onto your tresses. Try argan oil, and then wrap your hair in a silk scarf to lock in the moisture.
2. Natural volume
Braid your hair if you want some serious volume the next day. Apply a lightweight styling product before braiding it. Tomorrow, run your fingers through your hair and set it with hair spray.
3. Tousled waves
If you’re going for sexy waves, set your hair by tying it in a loose bun. After washing your hair, towel dry until it’s just slightly damp. Tie into a high but loose bun before sleeping.
4. Tangle-free hair
Keep your hair from getting into knots and tangles while you sleep by tying it loosely and keeping it away from your face. This is especially important if you move a lot while sleeping. It also prevents your hair from contaminating the skin on your face.
5. Easier-to-style hair
Lessen your time with the hair dryer the next day by washing your hair the night before and then using with a wide-tooth comb to detangle.
6. Frizz-free tresses
Minimize frizz by applying small amounts of leave-in conditioner to damp hair before sleeping. Brush your hair with a wide tooth comb before tying your hair into a loose knot, and then voila! Smooth, shiny hair.
7. Healthier hair
Massage your scalp to help with the blood flow, which will create healthier hair.
