Poor health of the hair is imme­di­ate­ly reflect­ed in their appear­ance: their ends are split, the strands seem dull, life­less, and begin to fall out. What­ev­er the prob­lem with hair, it is often caused by improp­er hair care. Some habit­u­al actions before going to bed can neg­a­tive­ly affect the con­di­tion of the hair.

1. Sleep with wet hair

1. Sleep with wet hair

Many peo­ple choose to wash their hair at the end of the day as it saves time in the morn­ing. How­ev­er, experts rec­om­mend going to bed with well-dried strands. Wet hair is much more frag­ile. Dur­ing sleep, they inter­act with bed­ding, which can cause them to break and fall out. In addi­tion, sleep­ing with such strands makes the pil­low damp and warm, which in turn can stim­u­late the for­ma­tion of dan­druff. Hair can be blow-dryed or brushed with a mois­ture-absorb­ing microfiber bris­tle hair brush.

2. Hot shower

A warm evening show­er after a hard day’s work relax­es well and has a ben­e­fi­cial effect on sleep. How­ev­er, exces­sive­ly hot water can be harm­ful to the hair. It wash­es away nat­ur­al sebum from the sur­face of the head, increas­ing the vul­ner­a­bil­i­ty of the roots of the strands. After that, the hair becomes dry and brit­tle, breaks more often and falls out. There­fore, it is bet­ter to take a show­er with warm water no high­er than 30–35 C.

It is rec­om­mend­ed to rinse the strands with cool water in order to bet­ter retain mois­ture inside the hair. So they will look shiny and healthy longer. After show­er­ing, dry your hair with a soft tow­el with­out rub­bing too much. If pos­si­ble, it is best to let them dry nat­u­ral­ly.

3. Cotton pillow

The mate­r­i­al of the pil­low­case also has an impact on the health of the hair. For exam­ple, sleep­ing on a cot­ton pil­low­case can cause hair tan­gles and tan­gles in fab­ric fibers. For those who have dry and brit­tle hair, it is bet­ter to aban­don cot­ton pil­low­cas­es in favor of silk or satin ones. They cause less fric­tion, and in the morn­ing the strands will not look tan­gled and loose. In addi­tion, this type of mate­r­i­al helps the hair retain nat­ur­al oils, which is impor­tant for peo­ple with dry or curly hair.

4. One pillow for several months

Prop­er hygiene is impor­tant for main­tain­ing healthy hair. If bed linen is changed less than one week, then it will neg­a­tive­ly affect the con­di­tion of the hair. With­in a few days, par­ti­cles of sebum and dirt grad­u­al­ly accu­mu­late on the sur­face of the pil­low­case, which pro­vokes the devel­op­ment of bac­te­ria. Sleep­ing on a dirty pil­low for a long time can lead to clogged hair fol­li­cles and hair loss. Experts advise wash­ing and chang­ing pil­low­cas­es once or twice a week, espe­cial­ly if your hair is oily.

5. Twisting the tips

While read­ing a book, watch­ing TV or tex­ting on a smart­phone, some peo­ple enjoy twist­ing and pulling strands of hair. This habit is cost­ly to the hair and leads to hair loss. To get rid of addic­tion, it is bet­ter to keep your hands busy, and col­lect your hair or do your hair. In addi­tion, it is impor­tant to con­trol the lev­el of stress. Peo­ple who are prone to anx­i­ety and ner­vous­ness are more like­ly than oth­ers to “play” with their hair, unknow­ing­ly harm­ing them.

6. Wrong combing

Comb­ing must be includ­ed in dai­ly hair care. This helps dis­trib­ute nat­ur­al sebum even­ly through­out the hair, mois­tur­iz­ing and pro­tect­ing it. After expo­sure to the comb, the hair fol­li­cles are acti­vat­ed, which pro­motes hair growth. A nice bonus of comb­ing is relax­ation, relax­ation of the ner­vous sys­tem and mood for a sound sleep.

It is impor­tant to remem­ber that comb­ing wet or damp hair can seri­ous­ly dam­age it, as can exces­sive, aggres­sive brush­ing. Such care quick­ly leads to brit­tle strands and their loss. Before going to bed, it is rec­om­mend­ed to use a wide-angle comb that will not pull hard on the hair.

7. Hard laying

The habit of falling asleep with a tight tail, a bun, a “shell” on your hair should be aban­doned as soon as pos­si­ble. Rigid styling at night dam­ages the hair. Because of them, the strands expe­ri­ence pro­longed stress and ten­sion in the root area, which leads to their break­age and sub­se­quent loss. If it is dif­fi­cult to leave hair dur­ing sleep with­out a hair­style, then it is bet­ter to braid braids. In addi­tion, the next morn­ing, the untwist­ed strands will acquire beau­ti­ful, light waves.

8. Poor maintenance of long hair

8. Poor maintenance of long hair

Long hair (below the shoul­ders) to leave uncol­lect­ed before going to bed is also harm­ful. Sebum and styling prod­uct par­ti­cles will have a dam­ag­ing effect on the skin. There­fore, it is bet­ter to comb and braid long hair or tie it into a soft tail or bun, with­out tight­en­ing it at the roots. In addi­tion, long loose hair is more like­ly to pol­lute the pil­low­case, and it will have to be changed almost dai­ly.

9Towel Turban

Wrap­ping wet hair in a tow­el after a show­er or bath is a com­mon pro­ce­dure for many. How­ev­er, going to bed with a tur­ban on your head is harm­ful. Wet hair is more sus­cep­ti­ble to stretch­ing and breaks faster. A tight tow­el twists the strands, caus­ing ten­sion in the root area and hair loss. Sleep­ing with damp hair wrapped in a tow­el also increas­es the risk of fun­gal infec­tions or dan­druff. After wash­ing the strands, pat them dry with a soft tow­el and let them dry before going to bed.

10. No mask for dry hair

Many peo­ple who have dry hair for­get about impor­tant hair treat­ments before bed. Evening oil mas­sage has a very ben­e­fi­cial effect on the con­di­tion of dry and brit­tle hair. This is an easy way to add some need­ed mois­ture to dry strands. Such care will help increase the vol­ume of hair and improve their health.

You need to take some heat­ed oil (olive, almond, coconut, bur­dock) and run through the hair from roots to ends, gen­tly mas­sag­ing the scalp to improve blood cir­cu­la­tion. If nec­es­sary, if the hair is very sick, the oil mask can be left overnight, pro­tect­ing the strands with a show­er cap. In the morn­ing, the remain­ing oil is washed off in the show­er with sham­poo. Apply­ing a warm oil mask before bed can help you relax and fall asleep.
