Default What do you do to your hair at night?

What do you do to your hair at night before bed?

I'm asking this because I just took my braids down from transitioning and I free-styled it into a cute hairstyle today, but I have no idea how to care for my hair on a daily basis at night. Do you twist your hair every night? What do you do for those "lazy nights" when you don't feel like twisting your hair? I just know I need to wear a satin hair wrap.

I do some big plaits and seal my ends. If I'm lazy, I either do some big twists, or do nothing at all, throw in my bonnet and call it a night.

It varies.....usually I make one braid with a bit of conditioner and turn up the ends and put a satin bonnet on. Sometimes I put a little jojoba on the braid and lazy nights i just twirl into a bun and bonnet-up.

I spray with whatever's in my bottle(I've been experimenting a tad bit), then apply a cream (experimenting with that as well), make 6 plaits then bonnet-up...

I wash at night and then airdry in braided pigtails under a wave cap or a satin scarf (or both). I have to put a towel on my pillow if my hair feels too wet.

In the morning I unravel the pigtails and pull them together into a bun.

Your ends aren't getting tangled by twirling it into a bun? The only way I can twirl my hair into a bun is if it's straightened or stretched out.

At night, I moisturize my hair and seal my ends. Then, I braid my length or put my hair into a bun.

No, I make sure I twist the last inch instead of braid it then just tuck it under itself to keep the ends protected.

My curls are too small to do that... But I see how with looser hair that could be different.

On nights that I wash myhair before going to bed, I wear a microfiber turban to bed and sleep on my satin pillowcase.

On days when my hair is dry, I pineapple and wear a bonnet.

When I'm super lazy, I just put it in a bun and sleep on my satin pillowcase.

Thanks, ladies I think I have my nightly regimen down. I twisted it last night and it came out looking horrendous, but practice makes perfect, I guess. My relaxed ends always make my twist outs look horrible.

Getchu some small perm rods..

On the nights I reset my hair, I spritz my ends with water seal with oil and retwist or braid. I dont wet my hair too much because I want to stretch it.

on the other nights I just pull it up into a tuck bun and wrap it up with a scarf, fluff it out with oil in the mornin & go
