How to Protect Your Hair When You’re Sleeping

How to Protect Your Hair When You’re Sleeping

Caring for your luscious locks doesn’t end when the day does. At Loud Poppy, we're all about empowering your hair to be as vibrant and bold as you are, even in the quiet of the night. Embrace the science-backed, cruelty-free care your mane deserves with a twist of our signature Loud Poppy flair. Let's dive into how you can protect and pamper your long, gorgeous hair while you're off in dreamland, leveraging the magic of our innovative products.

Luxurious Pillowcases: A Royal Treatment

Begin with the royal treatment for your tresses by swapping out your regular pillowcases for silk or satin ones. This simple switch can drastically reduce hair breakage and combat frizz. But why stop at any silk or satin when you can elevate your night routine with our eco-friendly, vegan silk alternatives? They're smooth, sustainable, and kind to both your skin and hair, aligning with your values and our commitment to cruelty-free beauty.

Shower Timing: Sync with Science

Timing your showers might seem mundane, but it’s a science-backed strategy to protect those precious strands. Ensure your hair is dry before hitting the pillow to avoid breakage. If you're washing with our Hair Bath, the sulfate-free formula not only protects your color but is infused with PC-80, ensuring your hair gets a gentle cleanse without stripping it of its natural oils. Finish with a cool rinse to seal in the moisture and prepare your hair for a night of restorative beauty sleep.

Wrap It Up: Silk Scarves and Satin Wraps

Before you wrap up your day, wrap up your hair. A silk scarf or satin wrap can keep your hair secure and significantly reduce frizz and tangling. Incorporate our Bloom Bond conditioner in your evening routine to infuse your locks with moisture before you wrap. Its PC-80 enriched formula bonds with your hair, delivering deep hydration and strength overnight. Wake up to hair that’s not only protected but deeply nourished, ready to bloom beautifully.

Brush with Care: Detangle with Devotion

Nightly brushing might sound basic, but it’s your first line of defense against tangles and breakage. Use a wide-tooth comb to gently detangle your hair, prepping it for a night of restorative rest. Our Root Loot is perfect for prepping your scalp and hair for gentle detangling, enriching your roots with essential nutrients and the groundbreaking benefits of PC-80 for a stronger, healthier mane.

Gentle Ties: Scrunchies Over Elastics

Banish breakage with the simple swap of elastic bands for soft, fabric scrunchies. This is not just a hair care tip; it’s a style statement. Tie your hair in a loose pony or bun at the crown of your head to avoid tension. Consider applying a small amount of our BotanaTech™ Bonding Hair Oil to the ends before tying. The lightweight formula, enriched with PC-80, nourishes without weighing your hair down, ensuring you wake up to smooth, hydrated ends.

Overnight Nourishment: Masks and Serums

Your hair’s beauty sleep is also the perfect time for deep nourishment. Apply a lightweight serum or mask before bed to tame frizz and add moisture. Our BotanaTech™ series includes overnight treatments that work in harmony with your body’s natural repair processes, leveraging the power of PC-80 to enhance absorption and efficacy. You're not just resting; you're revitalizing every strand from root to tip.

Embrace Braids: Waves Without the Work

Braiding your hair before bed isn’t just about avoiding tangles; it’s about waking up to effortless waves. Use our Bloom Bond as a leave-in treatment on your braids to wake up to soft, moisturized waves that are ready to go. It's like getting a beauty treatment while you sleep, with the added bonus of gorgeous, natural-looking waves in the morning.

Humidity and Air Quality: Your Bedroom’s Climate

Lastly, consider the climate in your bedroom. A humidifier can keep moisture levels optimal, preventing your hair from drying out. Pair this with our BotanaTech™ serums to lock in moisture, and you'll wake up to hair that feels as refreshed and rejuvenated as you do.
