Saving the Straightened Strands: 6 Tips for Taking Care of Relaxed Hair
Protect your hair at night
Have you ever been so exhausted at night after a long hard day of work (or shopping, we’re not mad at you) that you really didn’t want to wrap your hair at night? We understand. But also understand that by not doing so can cause your hair to break. If you have a cotton pillowcase, cotton tends to snag at the hair, causing breakage while you sleep.
How to fix this?
Endure the two minutes of wrapping your hair and putting on a scarf, or buy yourself a silk pillow case. The silk material protects your hair, and doesn’t snag and break it like the cotton ones do. Don’t have money to buy a silk case? then take your silk scarf and drape it over your pillow.
