Bed Head: How to Properly Wrap Up Your Hair

Whether you decide to wrap or pin curl your hair, always cover with a satin or silk scarf or bonnet.

A Weave

There’s no need to apply product to your weave at night. You should, however, moisturize your edges with a natural oil or moisturizer. How you secure your weave at night depends on the texture. But, regardless of the texture, you should treat your weave as you would your actual hair. For a straight or wavy weave, you can create a loose bun or chignon at the nape of your neck. Secure with a large bobby pin (an elastic band will leave unflattering dents). You can also wrap or pin curl a straight weave the same way you would wrap relaxed or straightened strands. Curly-textured weaves should be braided or twisted overnight to reduce tangling. And, of course, be sure to protect your weave with a satin or silk scarf or bonnet.
