Ahhh bedtime … the time of day to relax, unwind and hopefully wake up feeling restored and renewed. Just because nighttime is when your body is off the clock, doesn’t mean your beauty products have to be! Our products can work the night shift while you catch some Z’s! Read on for bedtime beauty tips that’ll have you waking up to healthy, gorgeous hair and glowing skin. Très Jolie!
Sleep on Satin or Silk
Did you know the average person spends 1/3 of their day sleeping? Tossing and turning at night can take its toll, causing friction and the potential for hair damage and wrinkles. But don’t fret! Invest in a silk or satin pillowcase to minimize breakage, frizz and fine lines. Sleeping on silk or satin, whether on a pillowcase or wrapping hair in a scarf before hitting the hay, will also help your blowout last longer.
By now you know that using hair masques on a regular basis is essential to keeping hair hydrated and nourished. While it’s not necessary, leaving a hair masque on overnight can actually boost the product’s effectiveness as it allows for hair to continue to absorb moisture until it’s thoroughly dry.
Want to wake up to soft, silky strands? Once a week after your shower, apply our Reconstructing Masque to your hair from the ears down. Leave on overnight, wake up and wash it out. This restorative treatment will your hair with moisture and proteins, featuring a rich blend of soy proteins, Vitamin B5, and natural conditioners to give you that prêt-a-porter glow.

When you wake up, take the braid out, you should have a like wavy texture that will make a great base and help your hair hold curl more easily. To finish the look, pull some pieces from around your crown and curl with a one-and-a-half-inch-barrel curling iron. The combination of loose curls from the large iron and the waves from the French braid make beautiful, soft curls. A couple sprays of our Mighty Hair Spray will offer a flexible, weightless hold to seal your style.
