To ensure that your curls stay in shape and your full head weave lasts longer, it might be a good idea to think about what happens to your curls while you are asleep. We have some good ideas on how best to shape your hair while lying on a pillow.
Sleep without ruining your curls
You'll avoid feeling your hair on your neck and sleeping on your curls. Instead, you gather your hair in a bun on the top of your head. Use a soft hair tie.
Use a Satin Bonnet while you sleep. You'll protect your hair ends against friction from bedding and pyjamas. Another good idea if you prefer sleeping with your hair let out is using satin pillow cases instead of cotton. Cotton absorbs moisture and leaves your hair and curls frizzier, drier and less defined.
Instead of braids, you can also easily split your hair into two tufts/buns. Then, split these into two additional tufts and wind them around each other, from the roots to the ends. This works best on hair that has slightly tighter curls and coily curls.
A French braid not only protects your hair against wear caused by friction when you sleep. It also creates Body Wave curls which are easy to let out in the morning. One idea is to braid the hair into more than one braid.
