The right tools will make all the difference.
Establishing a nighttime hair routine creates a healthier foundation for styling the next day.
What you include in your nighttime hair routine is dependent on your hair type. Someone with Straight, Wavy and Curly Hair will have different routines but sometimes practice the methods with the tools used.
Detangling brushes! Wide-tooth combs! Silk bonnets! You’re not imagining things—your bathroom counter space is shrinking. Arming yourself with the best tools possible at the onset will save you headaches (literally—good headbands are a must) down the line.
If you plan to manipulate your hair on a daily basis, a reliable detangling brush that doubles as a wide-tooth comb is crucial to getting started. You’ll be using it every single wash day. Just know that using it might feel different at first.
One thing you must really do is make sure you detangle from the bottom up. This will help prevent breakage and single-strand knots that can crop up when the hair shafts are tangled during combing.
When it comes to hair accessories, opt for all satin everything—satin pillowcases, bonnets, and scrunchies—to keep your hair from breaking and losing moisture.
