Cover Your Hair At Night

If you get a full night’s sleep (that’s a big If, I know), that’s nearly 3000 hours a year your hair is subjected to friction and stress. It will take its toll and undo all the hard work you put into caring for your hair.

I should know. I never saw any need to wrap my hair with anything. It seemed so extra. Until one night I went to bed on a clean pillow, and the next morning I woke to a horror scene. Broken hairs everywhere. Not just one or two, but all over my pillow case.

That sent me straight to DEFCON 1. I promptly cut up an old shirt and sewed it into a bandana, as if my survival depended on it. By the time I went natural, I was not playing around. Got that mid-sleep sixth sense to tug my wrap back on when it slips off, because these hairs are staying on my head.

The PSA here is sweet dreams are made of bandanas, satin scarfs, bonnets, durags–or whatever you use. They are essential. Cover your hair at night.

  2. Covering hair at night, I think I know better. I don’t joke with it, if I do, I end up with very dry breaking hair the next day. Sometimes, my silk scarf falls out of my head, I try my best to always tie it back.
