The last thing that anybody wants to do every morning is reach for a detangling conditioner in the shower, however frizzy locks can be the bane of every curly haired girl and guy's life. Luckily, it only takes a few simple steps to change your life as it is possible to protect your curls and prevent frizz by taking control as you sleep. Read on to find out more...

Protective Hairstyles

Curly hair can be a blessing and a curse as strands with this type of curl pattern are notoriously prone to tangles and frizz. Perhaps the biggest mistake that people make when sleeping on their curls is failing to put them into protective hairstyles that reduce the likelihood of these aftereffects of a good night's rest! By simply tying your hair into a braid or placing it in a bun on the very top of your head, you can make a significant difference to the way that your tresses look in the morning.

Invest in a Silk Pillowcase

Silk is known for its luxurious softness and this quality can be traced back to a protein known as sericin which acts a ‘glue’ in order to tightly hold all of the individual fibres together. Since curly hair is already more vulnerable to frizz and tangles, the last thing you’ll want to do is subject it to the rough texture of cotton. Instead, a silk pillowcase offers the ultimate softness and the smoothness of the texture allows each strand of hair to simply glide across the surface. Coupled with protective hairstyles, it’s safe to say that your curls will thank you for such a peaceful night's rest.

Don’t Sleep With Wet Hair

Your hair is at its most delicate when it is wet so it is important that you avoid pulling and tugging on the strands. In fact, this is something that should be taken into consideration by everybody and not just those with curly hair as putting unnecessary tension on your tresses can lead to breakage. As such, we recommend that you avoid sleeping with wet hair, especially if you don’t have a silk pillowcase, as you may find that you wake up in the morning with hair that is both tangled and damp - and that is a recipe for disaster!

Here at DREAMSILK, we believe that every curly haired person deserves to wake up with smooth and luxurious locks which is why we’ve harnessed the power of silk and used it in order to create an abundance of luxurious silk products that can be used in order to protect your curls as you sleep. Simply tie your hair in a protective hairstyle, lay your head down on one of our silk pillowcases and let the fibres do all the work - your tresses will simply glide across the surface!
