5 Overnight Hair Hacks to Try Tonight 5 Overnight Hair Hacks to Try Tonight 5 Overnight Hair Hacks to Try Tonight

Dragging yourself out of bed in the morning—and getting to where you need to be on time—isn’t always the easiest task, especially if you didn’t get a good night’s sleep. And add in the stress of styling your hair before you leave for the day—well, that doesn’t leave much time for anything else. Unlike your skin care and makeup routine—which are both pretty easy to pare down when you’re in a rush—styling your hair can require quite the commitment, especially when you throw showering and heat tools into the mix.

The good news is that there are quite a few simple overnight hair hacks you can try that can help limit the amount of time and effort you’ll have to spend styling your strands come morning. More time for breakfast and coffee before work? Sign us up! Try one of these overnight hair hacks tonight.

Overnight Hair Hack #1: Use the Right Brush—and Change Your Technique

Growing up, you probably heard that it was super-import to brush your hair every night before going to bed. Of course, brushing is important—it can help to detangle any knots. But you don’t have to overdo it, since brushing aggressively can potentially lead to damage. Instead, pick up a boar bristle brush (which can help to evenly distribute your hair’s natural oils), and start brushing from the bottom of your hair, working our way up. And never, ever brush wet hair, since that’s when your hair is its most fragile. When your hair is wet, you can spritz on a detangler to help make brushing once your hair has dried a little easier.

Overnight Hair Hack #2: Sleep on a Satin Pillowcase

Got a professional blowout but nervous about what it’ll look like after a night of tossing and turning? Well, it may be time to throw your regular ol’ pillowcase aside in favor of a satin one. A satin pillowcase can help to keep your hairstyle from getting messed up while you sleep, since it’s smoother than other fabrics. Plus, satin just makes everything seem a little fancier, doesn’t it?

Overnight Hair Hack #3: “Pineapple” Your Curls

When you have naturally curly hair, your biggest hair concern is probably worrying about your curls getting crushed as you sleep. One way to help prevent this from happening is to use the pineappling technique. For this overnight hair hack, all you’ll need is a silk hair scarf. Start by gathering your hair on the top of your head. Then, take the silk scarf and wrap it around the base. (Doing this will make your hair look like the leaves of a pineapple. Cool, right?)

Overnight Hair Hack #4: Pump up the Volume

Does your hair always seem to fall flat after a night of tossing and turning? Instead of wearing your hair down while you snooze, twist it up into a high bun instead, which can help to create some bounce. If you have fine hair, first wash your mane with a volumizing system of shampoo and conditioner, like the L'Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Shampoo and L'Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Conditioner. Then, blow-dry your hair with a round-brush and put it into a top knot, securing it with a few bobby pins. Release the bun when you wake up and shake your hair out. Ta-da!

Overnight Hair Hack #5: Create Heat-Free Waves

Frequent use of heat styling tools can take a toll on your hair. But you don’t need to use a curling wand to create pretty, beach-inspired waves. After you’ve washed and conditioned your hair, towel-dry, then spritz on the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray. Next, braid your hair to help create some texture. Making one big braid will result in looser waves, while making a few smaller braids will result in tighter waves. Sleep on your braid, then undo it in the morning and tousle your hair a carefree vibe!
