Many who wear hair extensions for the first time are not aware of the importance of sleeping with hair extensions correctly. For this reason, we have prepared this article to give useful tips on how to sleep with hair extensions, and the best ways to do this.
1.- How to sleep with hair extensions: According to the length
As we have little control over our sleep patterns and cannot know for sure how much we or our partners are moving at night, so we must secure our hair extensions, and this ensures they do not become tangled the next morning and can last longer. There are a few different styles you can opt for when sleeping with extensions. And the style you choose will depend on the length of your hair extensions, and how you plan to wear your hair extensions the following day.
As for most long hair extensions, the best way to wear them at night is to secure them in a braid. A braid is a great style as it keeps your hair out of the way, and it is very easy to deconstruct in the morning before brushing. Not only does securing your hair extensions in a braid keep them nice and tidy, it also prevents the hair extensions from becoming caught either by yourself, or by a partner, pet or child that lies beside you.
While if you have shorter hair extensions, sometimes a braid is not possible. In this instance, simply securing your hair in a ponytail will be enough to keep your hair out of the way whilst you are sleeping. If possible, try to fold your ponytail under itself, as this will secure the hair and prevent it from tangling or creating friction against your pillowcase. If opting for this style, you must make sure that the hair is not pulled too tight to put any pressure on the bonds. Therefore, you should use a suitable hairband that does not pull or snag on the hair.
Plait or turned under ponytail are the most suitable styles for sleeping with hair extensions, as they restrict the movement of the hair to keep the bonds from being disturbed too much during the night. If you don’t like these two methods, consider using a sleeping cap. A sleeping cap can protect your hair at night, as it constrains hair from moving. When your hair moves less at night, you wake up with fewer snarls.
2.- How to sleep with hair extensions: Brush them
Always brush your extensions before you go to sleep every night. This will not only remove any tangles, but also breakup and remove any product build up from the day. After that there is one other step just to check the extensions before you drift off to dreamland.
Carefully inspect your roots for any knots or tangles that may be causing unnecessary strain on your hair. No matter the type of bond you are using, this inspection process should be a part of your daily routine.
3.- How to sleep with hair extensions: Braid them
- Best option for sleeping with hair extensions, is to braid your hair with a medium tightness – so as not to cause any pulling but to still keep it secure through the night.
- A braid will prevent your hair extensions from moving around causing the bonds to tangle – keeping your extensions nicer longer and keeping your natural hair healthy and free from breakage.
- A braid will reduce friction on the mid lengths and ends of the hair as you move in your sleep – this can also be aided through the use of a satin or silk pillowcase – making the hair smoother and easier to brush in the morning.
When you remove braid when you wake up, you will be surprised just how well your hair stayed. Sleeping in the braid will result in easy to brush hair, that is in no way tangled and often with a soft wave that is ready to wear pretty much as soon as you brush it out.
One other thing that you need to keep in mind is that extensions get dry incredibly quick; so at least once a week, maybe more depending on your extensions and how much product you are using, you should be using an intensive nighttime treatment to keep your extensions healthier longer.
4.- How to sleep with hair extensions: Conditioned
- Apply a conditioner specific for the type of extensions you are using from the mid length to the ends of your extensions; avoiding the bonds as not to weaken their hold.
- Braid the extensions to keep them secure, prevent tangling, and to keep your hair back and out of your face.
- And then it’s time to lay your head down and sleep. You will remove the braid in the morning and wash the extensions as normal to remove the conditioner and get them ready for the day!
Important: Never sleep with wet or damp hair extensions
However, the most important tip is that you should never sleep with wet or even damp hair extensions. As it promotes tangles and in the worst case scenario causes matting, therefore before sleeping you must make sure your hair extensions are 100% dry.
In this case, I suggest you use a hairdryer to remove the excess moisture. If you didn’t, just one night of leaving your hair in this way can cause problems which are not impossible to fix, and may cost you time and money. In addition to securing your hair extensions and making sure they are dry, you can also use a satin or silk pillowcase which will help prevent matting because of the smooth surface which promotes less friction.
These simple but important steps are easy to follow. Keep them in mind and your hair extensions will be easy to manage in the next morning.
