Right before bed each night, I take the time to moisturize and seal my hair. It’s a really simple process that takes me less than 15 minutes and my hair is eternally grateful!
- No more crunchy dry hair in the morning, just soft touchable hair that lasts throughout the day!
- My hair has been significantly less tangled (which means a reduction in single strand knots, thank the Lord!)
- My hair has more volume in the morning, which I love! The bigger the better!
Of course, different size braids yield different results.
In the above picture, I have smedium (small-to medium) size braids. I usually do smaller braids (or twists) as the final step on wash day. Since I braid on wet hair, my braids or twists have more definition the next morning.
Here is what my hair looks like set on mostly dry hair
The biggest differences:
Length: Hair is stretched so it appears longer
Less Definition since the braids are not tight
My night routine is simple and easy. It only takes a bit of time and effort and I’ve seen that my hair is more manageable and softer are a result. I’d recommend all naturals invest in either a silk scarf or silk pillow case as an alternative to cotton pillow cases, to ensure that you retain moisture as your hair dries and sets during the night.
