BED HAIR- HOW I PROTECT MY HAIR AT NIGHT

Hello ladies,
I cant even begin to explain all the technical hiccups I’ve had recently. I am just glad I am able to start blogging again.  The good thing is I have a backlog of posts to share which I will put up together at the same time.  Hopefully that will make up for my recent absence.

So on with the first post.

I have been asked by several readers to share my night time hair regimen.
I don’t wrap my hair around my head in a circular motion for the following reasons

1)      I would have to use a comb to wrap the hair round my head.  I avoid combing my hair more than once a week.  Therefore nightly combing is a big no no for me.

2)      A lot of ladies who wrap their hair round their hair at night do so because they intend to wear it down the next day and want it to be crease free.  I hardly wear my hair down because I love buns and up-dos.  I wear protective  styles majority of the time so I do not mind if my hair has a few creases it when I wake up in the morning and remove my scarf.

What I do with my hair at night is known as a cross wrap.

 

WHAT IS CROSS WRAPPING

1)      Moisturise and seal my hair.  Part it into two with my fingers.

2)      Take one half and wrap it round the opposite side towards the front of my head.

3)      Use a clip secure the hair at the front

4 &5)      Repeat 2 and 3 with the other half.

6)      Cover hair with a satin scarf and tie loosely

7)      Slide out the clips gently

8)      Adjust the front of the scarf to ensure that no hair is sticking out and tighten scarf

With cross wrapping I have some bends or creases in my hair when I wake up the following day but I don’t mind.

Please note that cross wrapping is not the only way to protect your hair at night.  I am just sharing what I do with my hair and what works for me.

I hope you have found this helpful.

Stay tuned for a hair style pictorial coming up in a few minutes ( as long as my laptop co-operates)

    I now do this also :D. Seems i have a permanent part down the middle of my hair and the other sections i use when i moisturise and seal these days. hopefully there’s no harm in that. Abi is there ? Your hair’s looking a bit shorter now – guess it’s cos you’re months post relaxer. Wonder what your next length check will bring post texlax . . . hmmmm

    Hello Tolu

    I avoid parting at the exact same spot all the time to prevent that are from becoming weak. I just separate my hair randomly into two. I don’t aim for the same spot and it is a rough part not a neat and tidy one.
    Yes, I talked about how my hair tends to look shorter when stretching in my last post.
    Lol, I don’t know what my length will be when I next I texlax, I have a few more months to go on my stretch. Either way I will be keeping it at waist length.

    You have a valid point oh. I’d better start moving my parts around before i end up damaging the hair im supposed to be babying. I read a bit on baggying recently, do(did) you ever baggy and what’re your thoughts/experiences on it – a post idea for you…

    My hair is shorter so the cross wrap doesn’t work for me. Any other tips? I generally wrap it all the way around in one direction.
