We all know how important it is to get our beauty rest, but do you make the most out of your 8 hours? No longer limited to warding off under-eye circles, beauty sleep can actually improve the appearance of your hair as well!
Kevin Mancuso, Nexxus Creative Director, has offered up some tips to help maximize your overnight beauty benefits with a few simple before-bed tricks (courtesy of Nexxus products, of course) that will have you waking up with gorgeous manes come morning.
“A successful haircare regimen means you should treat your hair at all hours of the day and night, not just when you are awake. What you do to your hair overnight can make a big difference in its overall condition, not to mention, save you precious time in the morning.”
Tip #1: Mend ends while you sleep
Suffering from split ends? Repair them while you sleep with Nexxus ProMend Split End Binding Overnight Treatment ($14.99). The revolutionary product binds up to 94% of split ends back together in just one use to dramatically strengthen hair against future damage and leave you with a healthy, fresh-cut look in the morning.
Tip #2: Put less stress on hair (and yourself)!
Give hair a rest from daily heat styling by twisting damp hair into a loose bun before you go to bed. Allow hair to air dry while you sleep and let it down in the morning to reveal soft, tousled waves. This styling trick will loosen tighter curls, add bend to stick straight hair and minimize breakage.
Tip #3: Condition, condition, condition
Spritz hair with a light moisturizer like Nexxus Humectress Luxe Ultimate Moisturizing Leave-in Spray ($10.55) before bed. Ingredients like Vitamin E, Coconut Oil, and Honey Extract will penetrate hair overnight to seal in strength and intense hydration for softer, shinier strands.
Tip #4: Sleep on satin
Switch out your classic cotton pillowcase for a silky satin one. Not only will satin preserve your style better and prevent tangles, but it also helps to keep hair hydrated. For an added beauty boost, slip a cooling pillow into the case. The endothermic gel technology will keep your head cool all night and prevent you from sweating or waking up overheated.
