MYTH: Wrapping the hair at night or at the gym is not healthy maintenance
“Wrapping the hair before bed or tying it up with silk or satin caps will help keep the ends of your strands smooth and prevent breakage. Sleeping on satin or silk pillow cases will also work if wrapping is not an option. We move around when we sleep, and if you sleep on cotton sheets your hair will natural break off. You should not wrap the air all day long because the hair needs to breathe. When you workout your body sweats, creating moisture on your scalp that expands the shape of your hair. Wrapping during a workout will allow your hair to keep its form,” explains Washington.
