To protect your wash and go hairstyle while you sleep, you can try the following tips:
1. Gather your hair in 3 or 4 sections and loosely secure each section with a scrunchies or satin hair tie. This helps to preserve the curls and prevent them from getting flattened or crushed while you sleep.
2. Satin or silk pillowcase: Switching to a satin or silk pillowcase can minimize friction and reduce hair breakage. These materials are smoother and gentler on your hair, helping to maintain the integrity of your wash and go style.
3. Satin bonnet or scarf: Alternatively, you can wrap your hair with a satin bonnet or tie a satin scarf around your head. This creates a protective barrier, preventing friction and reducing frizz.
4. Refresh with a spritz: In the morning, if your curls need a little revival, you can mist them with water or a leave-in conditioner to reactivate the product and bring back some definition. Use your fingers or a wide-tooth comb to gently reshape any flattened areas.
Remember, everyone’s hair is unique, so it may take some experimentation to find the best method that works for you. Embrace your natural textures!
