Protect It At Night

Introducing the tartelette 2 in bloom palette – featuring 12 brand new, never-before-seen shades.

You try to protect it during the day, and you ensure you wear styles that will help you retain length. But what about in the night? At night, we can do the most damage to our hair. All the rubbing against the sheets and pillow can cause some serious friction and cause the hair to begin to rip apart (breakage).
Now there are many ways to avoid this mayhem. You could do baggying, you could wear protective styles at night, but the easiest way to avoid the problem is to Tie it Down (TID) at night.

TID involves using some form of a scarf or material to drape over the hair to cover it. The best materials to use are silk and satin. AVOID at all costs, cotton and polyester blends. Cotton is as we know, dry and absorbent. That being said it will absorb all the moisture from your hair if you use it to TID.
Silk/satin bonnets and or pillow cases are the best way to go.

S'well Bottles - 160x600

You can find these at any beauty supply store and even places like Walmart, CVS, Rite Aid and many more.

The pillow case is also good to have, for those nights when you forget to TID, you can still rest assured that your precious hair is protected.

I WANTED TO ADD:

Before TID at night, you may want to moisturize the hair. You can use a moisturizing mix, and you can also seal with Castor oil and or shea butter. Another thing, if your hair is very long, then you can put it in a loose bun, then TID.

I’ll add more when I see fit.

Stay Afroniquely You!

  1. Hey Mrs. Sunshine..thanks for stopping by. To answer you question yes there is. For one, ensure moisture is there before TID. As a matter of fact. I just added this info into the post. So that everyone will be able to see it. HTH

  3. I’ve been thinking about this alot lately. IS there anything I should be doing before I tie it down? When I take the scarf off, it is a sad sight to behold.

  5. i usually put my hair in a high afro-puff before i TID…when i wake up in the morning, there is less shrinkage and i don’t have to worry about a crushed ‘fro.

  7. I’m horrible about tying my hair down. I’ve hated it ever since I was a little girl. I recently bought satin pillow cases, and they help a bunch :)

  9. My quandry is what do us sistas with lots of hair do when the bonnet can’t cover it all up or it slips off… I want one that keeps all of the hair inside from the tops to the tips without disturbing my new do when i get it freshly maintained…

  11. Have you ever thought about making one of your own…get a big piece of satin cloth..and the elastic material that is normally used in a bonnet and sew it together…or you can braid your hair in chunks at night so it’ll take up less space. I had the same problem.

  15. Since I have a Afro, I put coconut oil in my hair then part and make five big braids and TID with a silk scarf. I do this every night.

    Thanks
