How do you protect your hair when sleeping?


Do you put it inside a silk/satin bonnet?

Do you sleep on a satin/silk pillowcase?

Or do you wrap a scarf around it?

I think it is important to look sexy for your partner. So I wear my hair loose.

That's just me... Smile

Nothing anymore - I used to have extremely long hair (like to my knees) and at that time I used to wear it in a loose braid to keep it from tangling.

Mine is all up on the pillow, spread out - I can't stand it being under me when I sleep. When I was younger I used to put it up in a pony tail / bun on the top of my head to make sure it didn't end up under me.

I have long hair (mid-back)and although I am 50, I will not cut it. I am a Texan and I like BIG HAIR. There, said it, haha.
I wrap it around in a loose top knot and clip it on top of my head when I have straightened and hot roll/voluminized it. If it is a curly day (my natural state), I loosely gather it in a jersey headband/tie, keeps the waves messier.
I never sleep with it down, flattens it and I always sleep on my silk pillowcase now. My new fave!
I cannot sleep if it isn't up and off my neck (too many hot flashes, haha), plus I have an eye mask.
I am the Princess and The Pea!!!!

That is a good idea Annie - it makes sense that if you put the strands up at night you will create some volume the next day. I am very interested in "big hair" so if you have any suggestions re sources of how to, would you be kind enough to pm? I do a lot of ballroom dancing and big hair goes well with some of the dance garb. Also, I just missed it in the 60s and it looks like FUN.

As for the question what do I do now - well, nothing, the most important thing for me is to ALWAYS SLEEP ON MY BACK (which could work with the topknot thing)because my main battle at this age is wrinkles. If I have even one night where I don't sleep on my back I can see a difference.

If you do a pony tail on top of your head, it creates tons of volume. I use to sleep with it down, but now that hot flashes have arrived, its up, PERIOD! Sometimes I just knot it on top of my head, its long enough to not need pins, I like Annie am a Texas Gal, and we do like our hair! Laughing

I use two different methods. I get a few chunks of hair & twist it and roll it up into a ball, then secure it.
The other method is have it spread out on my pillow. I don't like how hair feels under my skin and then I get hot.

Hi VeronicaM Smile

-I don't put any bonnet on my hair,
-I use a cotton pillowcase,
-don't use a scarf.

However, I put Almond oil with peppermint on my hair, just a few spray and massage on scalp. I normally wash my hair the next day, just a little bit of shampoo but no conditioner.

I find this mixture is so relaxing on my scalp so I use it. I find this mixture enough to condition my hair, but maybe I am wrong? I read sooooo many threads here at EDS with sooooo many advice that I am quite confused... But I will stick to my Almond oil with peppermint. Maybe try the "other" suggestions from other threads...
