Why You Should Sleep with Your Hair Up

Your hair is a lot more fragile than you might realize, and it’s important to care for it properly to avoid breakage and damage. Luckily, there are a lot of things you can do to keep your hair healthy and strong without spending a ton of money on expensive products!

One of the best things you can do for your hair each day is sleep with it up in a ponytail or top knot. Doing so will protect your hair from damage, reduce frizz, and help your styles to last longer between washes.

Hair Up Protects It From Damage

If your hair is free flowing all night long, it inevitably will get really knotted and tangled, which means more brushing in the morning and more damage and split ends.

If you keep your hair up while you’re sleeping, especially in a secure style like a top knot or braid, your hair won’t move around so much while you’re tossing and turning. You’ll wake up with your hair healthy and as tangle-free as when you went to sleep!

Hair Up Equals Clearer Skin

Did you know your hair produces sebum, just like your skin? If your hair is splayed across your pillow and pressed up to your face all night long, the oils in your hair can clog your pores and cause breakouts. The oil on your face can also get into your hair and make it greasy faster!

Keep your hair up and out of the way of your face to avoid extra oils from your face, and vice versa. To really combat all the oils your hair and skin produce, change your pillowcase regularly so you’re always sleeping on a fresh, clean surface.

Hair Up Makes Your Style Last Longer

If you prefer going longer stretches between washes or get a blowout on the regular, sleeping with your hair up is a must. Pulling your hair up in a loose bun will maintain that style and prevent creasing and tangling.

For a guaranteed crease-free blowout on waking, wear your hair up with PONY-O! All you have to do is put your hair in a high ponytail with your PONY-O, then wrap your hair around it and tuck the ends under. It’s so comfy, it won’t tug or get in the way of your much-deserved beauty sleep.

If you really want to protect your hair while sleeping, traditional elastic hair ties just won’t cut it. All elastics will do is leave a harsh crease in your hair, cause damage, and get snagged in those fragile strands.

Silk scrunchies are more gentle on the hair, but more often than not you’ll wake up to discover your scrunchy has abandoned you in the night, leaving your hair loose and tangled.

PONY-O is specifically designed with your hair in mind! It goes on easy, holds secure all night long, and is super easy to remove without any tugging or snagging. It won’t damage your hair and won’t fall out at night - it really is the best of both worlds!
