How to sleep with curly hairs

Here are few tips to how to sleep with curly hairs

Curly hair is very prone to snoring. This is due to the uneven shape of the hair follicles that makes it less effective at extracting the dead skin cells it needs.


Pipes get wider and deeper with the hair texture, because it's easier to inhale when air is pulled from the roots. However, there's another problem with too much snoring with curly hairs. It can cause sleep apnea.

But, what does sleep apnea entail?

Sleep Apnea is the number one cause of daytime sleepiness and nighttime wakefulness. During sleep, your airways relax and narrow. If they're not properly deflated, you could struggle to get enough oxygen to the brain and muscles. When it's the result of sleep apnea, your snoring is because you're either not fully getting enough oxygen or you're not getting enough air when you exhale.


Sleep Apnea is also associated with an increased risk of developing other serious medical conditions like high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke. If left untreated, sleep apnea can be fatal.

How to sleep with curly hair?

Try these tips to help you get some rest.

1. Wash your face.

Lacking sleep can also make your pores appear wider and your face appear saggy. Try a twice-daily cleansing routine. Your skin needs to be replenished after a lack of sleep. And this can only happen with a deep cleanse.

2. Get to bed at the same time.

By avoiding staying up late and then setting an alarm to wake you up in the morning, you'll feel much more refreshed and awake at work and for your day-to-day activities. Also, this will help keep you in a consistent sleep routine, which is extremely important to a healthy sleep-wake cycle.

3. Don't go to bed with wet hair.

You might be tempted to wake up and towel dry your hair to remove the excess moisture but it's best to wait until after you've showered, to avoid annoying tangles. This is because when your hair is wet, it can trap heat. Your curls will stick straight up instead of winding themselves down.

4. Use a pillow protector.

Not only will a pillow protector make your pillow look and feel a million times better, it can also help prevent your head from flipping to the side during sleep. Wrinkles and the sagging skin around your nose and mouth are most likely to occur when you're sleeping on your back, and your face is tilted to one side.

5. Avoid perfume and scented products.

While both scented products and perfume are scentless, they still stay on your skin longer. This can cause some kind of irritation that promotes more snoring.

6. Give yourself extra time to fall asleep.

If you're one of those people who find it difficult to fall asleep because you're not tired, take 15-20 minutes before you go to bed to wind down and get sleepy. You can do some deep breathing exercises or listen to a soothing nature playlist to help get you into a sleepy state.

7. Go to bed at the same time every night.

Because curly hair tends to weigh down on your face, it's important to be extra gentle with it when it's time to hit the hay. Get into bed, lie on your side, and support your head with a pillow. Also, make sure your pillow is flat and firm. A pillow that flattens out or rolls up tends to compress your curls, which causes more snoring.

Coming to terms with your hair can be a difficult and painful process, especially because of the way it looks. However, it's crucial to face your own truth and embrace the fact that the way you look affects your perception of yourself, your identity, and your entire being.

This means learning to love your curls. Do not feel ashamed of them, or feel they define you in a negative way. The biggest thing you can do to begin accepting your natural hair is to accept yourself for who you are, flaws and all.
