How to Sleep with Curly Hair to Ensure You Wake Up with Fabulous Curls

Fabulous hair can be difficult to achieve, but with these five awesome tips from Curlee Girlee on how to sleep with curly hair, it will be easier to make sure you wake up with fabulous curls every day!

1) Wet hair either in the shower/tub or with a water bottle if you choose not to wash it.

2) Do not over condition it. It is tempting to think that more conditioner will help get the tangles out but it will also ruin the ringlets.

3) Detangle it using water and a good flat brush.

4) Do not let her sleep with her hair wet. This will flatten out the curls or cause frizz.

5) Once it is dry put it in a ponytail and then let her sleep in a turbin (see a pic of my Curlee Girlee, Ari, going to sleep). The turbin will keep her hair from getting frizzy and messy while she moves around in her sleep. A silk turbin is the best choice!
