BENEFITS OF COVERING YOUR HAIR AT BED TIME
June 25, 2021
As part of black culture, many of us already know about hair coverings like bonnets and durags, and have included wearing one as part of our nighttime routine. Here are some of the benefits of properly covering your hair before going to bed.
1 REDUCES TANGLES, FRIZZING, OR BREAKAGE
Hair –especially curly and coily hair-, tends to tangle when we sleep, due to excessive tossing and toiling. By wrapping our hair up, and keeping it firm under a covering (preferably a silk hair covering), we are able to prevent knots in our hair, making our hair more manageable in the daytime.
Due to excessive tossing and toiling, our hair tends to have a lot of friction with the surface we are sleeping on. Wearing a silk bonnet, durag, turban, or scarf, helps to relieve our hair of that friction, thereby, preventing frizziness in our hair.
With hair friction now completely eliminated, and with our hair kept firmly in place, we are able to reduce a certain degree of hair loss, by eradicating incidents that can cause hair breakage while sleeping.
2 MAINTAINS HAIRSTYLE
Another great benefit of sleeping with a hair covering is that it helps maintain our hairstyle, helping it last longer, irrespective of what style it may be. With wig installations or sew-ins, wrapping our hair up before bed would keep the weave in place, reducing ‘wears and tears in the glue and/or stitches.
The popular male hairstyle, ‘waves’ typically requires a tightly fit durag to be worn for long hours to maintain the lines of organized curls that the hairstyle hopes to achieve.
3 LOCKS IN MOISTURE
A final substantial reason to wrap our hair in silk hair covering before sleeping is simply because it helps lock in essential moisture. With curly and coily hair, it is crucial to keep our hair properly moisturized at all times. Sleeping on cotton sheets with no hair protection can cause the sheets to absorb moisture from the hair, leaving it dry and crusty by the time we wake from our sleep.
