The Link Between Sleep And Hair Loss

What Is Sleep Hygiene And Why Is It Important?

Your sleep directly affects your hormones, particularly cortisol, the stress diva. The messier your sleep cycle is, the more tantrums she’s gonna throw. The result? Your hair will pull a disappearing act before you know it. Hit the reset button by sneaking in at least 8-9 hours of sleep and watch your hair go from ‘uh-oh’ to ‘flip-tastic!’ Wondering where to start? Enter: sleep hygiene.

What Is Sleep Hygiene And Why Is It Important?

Okay fam, sleep hygiene is nothing more but a sleep routine. Just like your wash day routine or your skincare routine, sleep hygiene helps your body slip into slumber parties, so that you can wake up fresh and your hair: fabulous. Here’s what you can do to invite those 8 hours of blissful, uninterrupted sleep.

1. Have A Consistent Sleep Schedule

Sleeping and waking up at the same time will regulate your body’s internal clock. This will automatically promote healthy sleep and thus improve your hair quality.

2. Setup Your Sleep Sanctuary 

Smaller, finer things like the lighting, noise levels and temperature can pull huge impacts on your sleep. Your sleeping space is your sanctuary. Keep it cool, dark and quiet. To create an ultimate sleep haven, make sure that your mattress and pillows are super comfy and your quilt is a bit heavy.

3. Routine, Not Reruns

This might seem a bit of a stretch, but trust us, it's just about a habit. Instead of squeezing in one more episode (which always ends up in 3-4 more), pick up that half-read book or put on some relaxing music, journal, take a warm bath, or practice mindfulness. Frankly, there is so much else you can do. This will allow your body to rest and signal it to wind down.

4. Sweat It Out

Having a regular workout schedule is your VVIP pass to the sweet land of dreams. Get those endorphins pumping—jogging, weight training, yoga, pilates—whatever you prefer. Just make sure not to do it right before bedtime.

5. Blue Screen Detox

That sweet, sweet melatonin (sleep-inducing hormone) is disrupted by the silly blue lights from your phones or electronic reading devices. This is because the blue hues from the gadgets resemble the daytime, which alters the mind rather than slowing it down. Try not to use electronic devices at least an hour before bed.
