Your Nighttime Hair Routine

When you hear the words “nighttime routine” you probably think about skin care. While skin care is important, we often don’t think about the fact that our hair also uses the nighttime to restore itself as we sleep. We like to think of ourselves as hair care enthusiasts, so today we’ve decided to offer our top tips to improve your nighttime hair routine. Try these out and you’ll wake up to better hair days in no time!

Tip #1: Keep your hair loose

You might think that sleeping with your hair up in a tight bun or ponytail is harmless, but the tension can put a strain on your scalp and lead to hair damage. It’s a good idea to keep your hair away from your face, however, so we recommend sticking with a classic, loose braid instead. This will save your ends from the breakage that occurs when your hair rubs against your pillow, and as a bonus you can wake up to gorgeous heatless waves!

Tip #2: Keep your hair dry

Hair is at its most vulnerable when it’s wet, so it’s important to dry your hair completely before bed to prevent tugging and breakage. There are many time-saving advantages to washing your hair at night, but if you do so give yourself an extra hour or two to allow it to air dry, or give it a good blowout before bed (using a heat protectant, of course).

Tip #3: Upgrade your pillowcase

While it might seem like a bit of an investment, trading up to a high-quality silk pillowcase will do wonders for your hair (and skin!). Silk is a much gentler fabric than cotton, and the smaller fibers of the material will help prevent damage to your delicate ends- especially if you toss and turn at night.

Tip #4: Utilize an overnight treatment

It’s important to include masks and treatments in your weekly hair care routine, but sometimes the 15-30 minute masks just won’t cut it. Take advantage of your sleep time by applying a nourishing hair mask- such as our Oribe Gold Lust Masque- before bed. Leaving it on overnight will turn it into an intensive repairing treatment and leave your hair ultra hydrated. Depending upon your hair type, we recommend you try this once or twice a month. You can also ask your stylist for product recommendations based on your hair’s specific needs.

By taking a few extra steps at night and incorporating simple hair care into your nighttime beauty routine, you can ensure that your hair is protected overnight so it can stay long, strong, and flyaway-free!
