Hold Onto Your Hair

When you don’t get enough sleep, your body is stressed. And when your body is stressed, even your hair feels it. Suddenly your locks don’t seem as thick or grow as quickly; your hair may lose its shine and bounce. Even worse, it could fall out! The stress from lack of sleep can cause hair loss, according to senior trichologist (someone who deals with the scientific study of hair and scalp) Leonora Doclis of the Belgravia Centre in London. Those who are already susceptible to hair loss due to genetics face the most risk.

You can help your hair by sleeping on a silk or satin pillowcase. The smooth surface creates less friction, which helps prevent breakage overnight and may even keep your hairstyle smooth. Put it over a MicronOne pillow cover. No more morning bed-head!
