Why Does Hair Get Frizzy Overnight?
The most common cause of overnight frizz is friction. When you move around while sleeping, your hair rubs on itself and the pillowcase, causing friction that disrupts the hair cuticle and leads to frizz, breakage, and split ends over time.
A lack of moisture in the hair also contributes to a frizzy appearance. Harsh hair products, heat styling tools, or harsh environmental factors like sun, cold air, and wind can cause dryness and breakage, leading to a rough hair texture and lack of shine.
Humidity may also play a role in overnight frizz. When it’s humid, the hair shaft absorbs moisture from the air, which causes it to swell. The increased volume makes the hair cuticle stand away from the shaft, leading to a rough, frizzy texture.
And finally, damaged hair and split ends can cause hair to get frizzier overnight. When the hair is damaged, the hair shaft becomes rough and porous, leading to a frizzy texture. Trimming split ends regularly can be very helpful for reducing the appearance of frizz.
How to Keep Your Hair from Getting Frizzy Overnight
1. Smooth Your Hair Overnight with Hair Oil
If you’re tired of struggling with frizz and flyaways every morning, it’s time to bring a hair oil into your life! Our Honey-Infused Hair Oil provides a simple way to smooth and control frizz, leaving your locks soft, shiny, and manageable.
Our hair oil is packed with nourishing natural ingredients that hydrate and protect the hair shaft, creating a smooth, frizz-free surface that’s resistant to tangles and breakage. These ingredients include:
- Honey: Honey from the Mirsalehi Bee Garden is rich in nourishing vitamins, minerals, proteins, and antioxidants. It is a natural humectant used to draw moisture into the hair while boosting its overall health.
- Argan Oil: A luxurious oil packed with antioxidants and fatty acids to nourish and protect the hair.
- Coconut Oil: A lightweight oil that absorbs quickly to hydrate the hair and help it retain moisture.
- Sweet Almond Oil: A natural, nutrient-rich emollient hair oil that easily penetrates the hair shaft to strengthen, condition, and add shine. It also helps the hair retain moisture to fight frizz from the inside out.
Simply apply a few drops of hair oil into the palm of your hand, rub your hands together, and work it through your hair from mid-shaft to ends before you go to bed. Our honey-infused hair oil is ideal as an overnight treatment for shiny, smooth, nourished hair.
2. Deep Hydration for Frizz-Free Hair
Dryness and brittleness often go hand in hand with frizzy hair, and that’s where a hair mask really shines. Deep conditioning hair masks contain highly concentrated, nourishing ingredients that penetrate the hair shaft to hydrate and repair the hair from within.
Gisou’s Honey-Infused Hair Mask contains Mirsalehi Honey, a natural humectant rich in key nutrients. Our hair mask also contains nourishing ingredients like almond oil, sunflower oil, and panthenol to leave your hair looking and feeling its best.
Regular hair masks will help repair and moisturize the hair to reduce overnight frizz and leave it soft and shiny throughout the day. Apply our mask to wet or dry hair from mid-lengths to ends and leave on for a few minutes up to overnight. Follow with our Honey Infused Conditioner to seal the hair shaft and lock in hydration.
3. Leave-In Conditioner for Lasting Moisture
Leave-in conditioner is the secret to hair that’s hydrated and frizz-free all day long, but did you know that you can apply it before bed, too? Leave-in conditioners are formulated to provide lightweight hydration, so your hair stays frizz-free while you sleep.
Leave-in conditioner also helps to prevent moisture loss overnight, keeping it smooth and moisturized. Gisou’s Honey-Infused Leave-In Conditioner features nourishing ingredients like Mirsalehi Honey, Baobab extract, and argan oil to hydrate and repair the hair.
In addition to controlling frizz overnight, using our leave-in conditioner regularly will help to reduce split ends and breakage. Simply spritz it evenly from mid-shaft to ends and comb through with your fingers or a wide-toothed comb for best results.
4. Frizz-Free Tresses with Overnight Braids
If you wake up to a tangle of frizzy hair every morning, overnight braids might be just what you need! Braiding your hair can help to prevent tangles and keep it smooth until morning by securing it in a neat, controlled pattern that reduces friction between the hair strands.
Even better, overnight braids will create heatless waves or curls, and you can experiment with different braid sizes and styles for different results. Try applying a few drops of hair oil after you take out the braids in the morning for added smoothness and shine.
5. Sleek Strands with a High-Bun
When it comes to preventing tangles and frizz overnight, putting your hair in a high bun before bed is a simple solution that really works. By securing the lengths of your hair at the crown of your head, you’re reducing the amount of friction and movement your hair experiences while you sleep.
Experiment with different bun styles to see what you like best. A tight ballerina bun, a top knot, and a loose, messy bun will each produce different types of heatless waves, making it a perfect solution for those days when you know you’ll be in a rush and need to get out the door quickly.
6. Say Goodbye to Bedhead with a Silk Pillowcase
Investing in a silk pillowcase is another simple and effective way to keep your hair from getting frizzy overnight. Silk is a smooth, gentle material that won’t cause friction with your hair like a traditional cotton pillowcase can.
Look for a pillowcase with a high thread count and pure silk material for the best results. As a bonus, sleeping on a silk pillowcase reduces friction on your skin as well, which may help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
7. Switch to a Microfiber Towel
Cotton towels can be harsh on the hair, causing friction, tangles, and breakage and increasing the risk of frizz later. Microfiber towels, on the other hand, are much more gentle and absorbent, making them the perfect tool for drying your hair without causing damage.
As a bonus, microfiber towels absorb more water, so you won’t need to spend as much time blow-drying your hair, minimizing the risk of heat damage. Damaged hair is much more likely to be frizzy and unmanageable, so switching to microfiber is an effective way to battle frizz on multiple fronts.
8. Say No to Harsh Brushes and Combs
Using the wrong brush or comb on your hair can actually make frizz worse. Rough bristles and teeth can pull on tangled hair, causing damage that leads to more frizz. Choosing gentle brushes and combs will help to keep your hair healthy and less prone to frizz overnight.
Look for options that with smooth, wide teeth and soft bristles. Wide-toothed combs are ideal for detangling the hair without causing damage and frizz, especially when used in conjunction with our leave-in conditioner.
When shopping for a brush, look for one with soft, natural bristles that will help distribute the natural oils throughout your hair for added shine. A flexible detangling brush can also be a good option for those with curly or kinky hair.
Choosing the right brush or comb isn’t just about reducing frizz overnight. It will also help to reduce breakage and split ends that can lead to frizz and flyaways throughout the day.
9. Lock In Smoothness with a Cool Shot
When it comes to achieving frizz-free styles that last overnight, it’s all about the blow dry. And one trick that can make all the difference is setting the style with a cool shot from your hair dryer. A cool shot is a blast of cool air that sets and seals the cuticle, keeping frizz and flyaways at bay.
To give it a try, apply a heat protectant and blow dry your as usual, using a round brush if needed to achieve a frizz-free style. After your hair is completely dry, use the cool shot option on your hair dryer to blow dry your hair until it’s completely cool.
Follow with a drop or two of Honey Infused Hair Oil to add shine and keep frizz and flyaways away until your next wash day.
10. Maintain Your Style Overnight with a Hair Wrap
If you’re tired of waking up to tangles and frizz every morning, a nighttime hair wrap might be just the solution you’re looking for. This seemingly small addition to your routine can make a big difference in the appearance of your hair and how much time you spend maintaining your style.
A hair wrap is simply a tool that keeps your hair secure while you sleep. By wrapping your hair in a soft and gentle material, you prevent the friction that destroys your hairstyle and causes frizz. Whether you had a blowout or took extra time to curl your hair, a hair wrap will help to keep it looking good as new in the morning.
This trick is especially helpful for those with curly or wavy hair that’s more prone to frizz. A silk scarf will do the trick, but there are also lots of hair wraps available that were specifically designed for this purpose.
From hair wraps to silk pillowcases, each of these tips can help you say goodbye to frizzy hair while you sleep. But incorporating a hair oil, hair mask, and leave-in conditioner can take your hair game to the next level!
Gisou’s Honey Infused Hair Oil, Hair Mask, and Leave-In Conditioner are the key to keeping your hair healthy, hydrated, and frizz-free, not just overnight but throughout the day as well. Give them a try and experience the magic of Mirsalehi honey for yourself!
