How to Keep Your Natural Hair Healthy At Night

Keeping your hair protected at night is key to keeping your hair healthy. I spend a lot of time caring for my natural hair. I make sure that my night routine is just as important, and is included in my regimen.

This week I am on vacation in Florida. That does not mean I get a free pass to skip my hair routine. Even when I travel, all my regimens and routines are still in place to care for my hair, and that includes my night-time regimen. So you better believe I brought along all the necessary tools to care for my hair at night while I am on vacation.

Since I went natural in 2009, I have minimized my routines and made them simpler and more streamlined. My night-time routine only includes about three steps now. They include low manipulation styling, a satin lined cap to protect my hair, and I also keep my hair moisturized.

How to Keep Your Natural Hair Healthy At Night

Low Manipulation Styling

I never go to sleep with my hair out, no matter how tired I am. I have learned my lesson of sleeping with my hair out and in the morning ending up with tangled and matted hair. So I usually do multiple pineapples, our just one ponytail.

Wear a Satin-Lined Cap 

Yep, even on vacation, I am making sure that my hair is protected and healthy. I brought along with me my Slap by Grace Eleyae. The Satin-Lined Caps by Grace Eleyae are stylish caps that keep hair moisturized, protected and knot-free while sleeping, and stay in place day or night, thanks to each cap’s elastic band. Talk about protection, the Slap by Grace Eleyae has me covered in all areas! I love how you can also wear them to sleep as a protective barrier between your hair and harsh materials, and you can wear them out and about as a cute cap that of course, is a protective barrier between your hair and harsh outside materials. You can say goodbye to unnecessary breakage and frizz. Keep your hair moisturized and silky smooth with the Satin-Lined Cap by Grace Eleyae.

Keep Your Hair Moisturized

This is a major step in my night-time routine for my hair. I always spritz my hair with a little water or spray leave-in conditioner to moisturize my hair before bedtime. I never go to sleep with dry hair because I don’t want to wake up with dry hair.

    oooh ? I’ve been missed a few steps. I only wear a satin cap at night, so you can imagine how it looks in the morning. A matted mess and detangling in the morning. Will try something new tonight.

    That satin cap is exactly what I need… I already own a satin cap but it comes with strings to tie. It can be a bother to be tying and untying the string each day.

    The satin cap is everything! I love a satin cap and a satin pillow case. I wear a satin cap every night without fail to keep my hair in order!

    I’ve seen a few satin caps, but I really like the style of the one you’re wearing. Stylish and able to protect the hair!

    Braiding your hair or putting it in a pineapple makes so much sense to do at night. My daughter has natural hair and I’m transitioning; unfortunately, I’ve been missing this step in her routine. I’ll be sure to incorporate it into her routine and mine when I’m working with my natural hair and not synthetic. Thank you!

    I just bought a satin cap this week. It’s been an adjustment trying to wear it all night.

    Satin lined ANYTHING is my saving grace for my natural curls. I’ll have to check out these caps. Thanks for sharing!
