Who doesn’t know the morning mess? The hair stands out like straw, there is hardly a way for a comb and brush to get through. Does not have to be! STYLEBOOK knows seven tips with which your hair can turn into a dream mane overnight.

Tips at a glance

To bed with dry hair

Never, never, never to bed with loose and wet hair! Why not? The hair is more sensitive when wet, if it rubs on the pillow when sleeping, this can lead to split ends and hair breakage. If you wash your hair in the evening, you should plan time to blow-dry or let it dry in peace. But then definitely think about the heat protection! Braid the slightly damp hair into a loose pigtail to protect against split ends, making sure to use a soft elastic band. Beautiful hair overnight - it's that easy!

Leave the hair mask on overnight

The only exception that warrants wet hair while sleeping is hair care. Over night, masks, cures and the like have plenty of time to work deeply into the hair. Here you can either use leave-in care or a treatment that is washed out in the morning. Spread the product generously in the hair and then loosely wrap or braid the wet hair in a microfiber towel, and you can look forward to a wonderfully shiny mane when you wake up.

Beautiful hair overnight - plopping

Speaking of microfiber towels: There is a great overnight trick that works with curls: plopping. The hair is freshly washed and wrapped in a microfiber cloth or a cotton shirt, where it turns into beautiful, defined curls overnight.

Sleep with a hairstyle

If you sleep with your hair down, you run the risk of the hair on the pillow surface being roughened or, in the worst case, even breaking off. Dry hair is therefore best spared in two ways when sleeping: the loosely twisted bun or a plait. Both variants protect the hair from breaking, as they do not rub individually over the pillow. You can also conjure up waves in your hair this way. The tighter the braid or bun is tied, the more curly the curls and the more volume the hair has. But be careful! Both hairstyles shouldn't be too tight to prevent hair breakage overnight.

Use gentle hairbands

In general, and therefore also for sleeping, the following applies: If you want to protect your hair, you should avoid hair ties and clasps with metal parts. Tie a bun overnight or plait a pigtail, then use a scrunchie or a hair band made of silk or velvet without a metal insert to fix the hairstyle.

Bed your head on silk

Protect your skin and hair with the choice of bed linen too. Cotton, linen and the like are often too rough for sensitive hair and put additional strain on them. Smooth silk is gentler. If you don't want to exchange all of your pillowcases, a sleeping cap or a silk scarf is enough to have a nice mane in the morning.

Dry shampoo against greasy deposits

Dry shampoo is the panacea for those who don't want to wash their hair every day. If it is added to the fatty solutions before going to bed, the dry shampoo soaks up the sebum overnight and you wake up with a non-fat solution. The same works with baby powder too. Especially short hair is flattened overnight and is quickly greasy. With a little baby powder on the neck, you wake up in the morning with volume and a neck like freshly washed.
