We sleep for an average of 8 hours a day and our hair can get caught up as we sleep. If your hair is natural (afro) like mine, you may need to pay a bit more attention to how you care for your hair as you sleep. Here are a few ways to protect your hair while sleeping:

Invest in a silk pillowcase

Investing in a silk pillowcase is one of the most simple ways to take care of your natural hair while sleeping. Silk is a gentle fabric that protects your hair from excessive damage and pulling while you toss and turn as you sleep. Silk pillowcases are also super comfy and they aid in a good night’s sleep, which is another good reason to invest in them. I have quite a few and I can’t imagine not sleeping on a silk pillowcase now.

Use a silk scarf and bonnet

Still on how amazing silk fabric is when it comes to hair care, invest in a couple of silk scarves and bonnets, and your hairline will thank you for it. Wrapping your hair in a silk scarf will keep it moisturised and protected as you sleep. Using a silk scarf, bonnet, and pillowcase at nighttime will do wonders for your hair.

Moisturise your hair before bedtime

It is important you moisturise your hair before you sleep. I usually moisturise my hair with Black Seed Oil and water mixture in a spray bottle just before I wrap it up in my silk scarf and bonnet. This keeps my hair soft and moisturised overnight.

Avoid tight protective styles

Tight protective styles damage hair, especially the hairline. It is best to ensure you avoid hairstyles that put excessive pressure on the hairline, especially when you sleep. Loose styles are best if you prefer not to sleep with your hair down. I prefer putting my hair in loose plaits and leaving them down but wrapped for bedtime.

Skincare tips from the world’s best facialists

Our skin is delicate and so it should be handled with care. The older we become, the more important it is for us to pay extra attention to our skincare routine and the products we use on a daily basis. Depending on many factors, it can be super easy to get our skin to glow and it can also be easy to let ourselves go and allow our skin to lose its shine. Taking good care of the skin is the goal for many which is why I love reading and writing about beauty and skincare tips.

Skincare tips from the world’s best facialists

If you are struggling to think of new ways to take care of your skin, here are some amazing skincare tips from the world’s best facialists:

Ada Ooi on facial massaging techniques

“One of the best skincare hacks that you can do easily from home is to use facial massaging technique to stimulate acupressure points for tension release and drain the lymphatic system to give a firmer, brighter complexion,” says Ada. “Start with your favourite serum to nourish and give slip, then using a Gua Sha tool gently massage the face, following the lymphatic system to reduce swelling and tighten your skin to give a more youthful appearance,”

I have heard a lot about this skincare hack and this is one I am definitely going to try soon. The technique sounds very relaxing and I bet it works great too! The Gua Sha tool is now on my beauty wishlist; it sounds fantastic. Have you used it?

Joanna Czech on a night-time skincare routine

Don’t skip your night time routine,” says Joanna. “Products are up to 60% more effective when our bodies are at rest, so take the time to cleanse your face and body thoroughly and apply your products before bed.”

I agree with Joanna completely. Night time is the best time to take care of your skin. I recently got a new facial moisturiser and I use it only at night time just so my skin can soak up all the goodies. It is such a lovely night time moisturiser and I will be reviewing it here on the blog soon.
