French Braid Your HAIR For Sleep

French braid your hair at night to help it grow faster.

So, one of my coworkers at Sally Beauty Supply told me a cool idea the other night: to wear your hair in a french braid while you are sleeping.  It’s supposed to keep your hair really healthy and help it grow longer.  It seemed a little weird at first but then when she explained it, it made sense to me.  So I decided to write a post about why french braiding your hair for sleepy time is good for your hair.

1. Scalp Stimulation

When you braid your hair, you are gently pulling your hair tight.  This stimulates your scalp.  Stimulating your scalp circulates blood flow to your hair follicles, which, in turn, equates to a healthier scalp and supposed faster hair growth.  While hair is in the Anagen phase (the growing phase), growth cells in the papilla rapidly divide and produce the hair shaft which becomes keratinized as it pushes up and out of the follicle into the pore. At the same time, the follicle grows down into the deeper levels of the dermis (skin) to get nourishment (hairlosshelp.com).  It makes sense that increased blood flow would help speed this process up a little.  I’m not saying that you are going to wake up the next morning with hair down to your butt, but it will add a little boost.

  1. Yes, daily ponytail can make cause hair breakage. Leaving hair while you are sleeping can tangles your hair, so its not good to leave your hair at bed time. Its is really good to braid your hair, you can go for simple braid or french braid like you said. French braid can allows hair to be air free. That can reduces the causes of fungus or scalp infection and reduces hair loss.
