Most of us have a nighttime skin care routine, but we rarely tend to our hair before going to bed. We often forget that our hair also uses this time to restore itself while we sleep. Plus, utilizing hair treatments overnight allows them to stay on the hair for a longer, uninterrupted amount of time.
There's recently been a rise in overnight hair treatments that hydrate and repair, helping to reverse the stress we put our hair through each day from heat styling, coloring and the environment. But unlike the hair masks you're used in the past, these innovative formulas won't ruin your pillow and don't need to be rinsed out in the morning.
Take advantage of the downtime while you sleep and apply hair treatments before you go to bed. Here are our top picks so you can get your best beauty sleep and wake up with gorgeous hair.
Use Tea Tree Lavender Mint Overnight Moisture Therapy to moisturize, soften and get a restful night's sleep. The softening, rich, pillow-safe formula is designed to provide a higher-quality night's sleep with specialized aromatherapy that calms the mind with the scent of lavender. Monoi, pequi and jojoba oils help repair, protect and deeply condition dry, damaged hair. HOW TO: Evenly distribute from scalp to ends on dry or damp hair. Leave in overnight. In the morning, style as desired. Finer hair types may rinse before styling.
Use Neuro® Restore HeatCTRL® Overnight Repair to help hair recover overnight from daily heat styling with hair dryers, flat irons and curling irons. This reparative hair mask with HeatCTRL® technology mends damaged strands, replenishes moisture, and smoothes and seals the cuticle, while helping protect against future damage. The rich, replenishing formula leaves all hair types softer and more manageable without leaving a residue on your pillow. HOW TO: Use as needed at bedtime on clean, damp hair. Dispense 1-3 pumps into the palm of your hand. Work product from midshaft to ends, then from root to ends. Style in the morning. For finer hair, rinse if desired.
Try this trick for a revitalized, second-day look. HOW-TO: Twist your hair into a loose bun and secure it with a scrunchie before going to bed. In the morning, shake out hair, mist with Invisiblewear® Boomerang Restyling Mist® and tousle with fingers for loose, effortless waves.
