Overnight Hair Repair

Take advantage of those crucial eight hours by using these oils and products in your hair, at least once every
week, before slipping between the sheets. They require zero effort, and you'll look amazing by morning.

Smooth onto dry or damp strands and the smoothing silk proteins go to work while you snooze.
Applying a night cream plays a crucial role in your skincare routine, applying a mask or oil on hair at night seems to have started to gaining importance. Overnight treatments are a new category of hair-care products that claim to repair your hair while you sleep by incorporating vitamins, amino acids, botanical oils, silicones. These overnight treatments promise to provide stronger, shinier, healthier, and more moisturized hair. So we decided to try it out ourselves and look what we found.

Sunsilk Keratinology Advanced Reconstruction Program Overnight Treatment
WHAT IT IS: A nighttime leave-in treatment for damaged hair
WHAT IT DOES: Softens and repairs
HOW IT FEELS/SMELLS/LOOKS: The creamy serum has a relaxing scent.
WHY WE LIKE IT: At the risk of sounding cliché, this stuff works like a dream, nullifying frizz and (temporarily) sealing split ends while you sleep. And the next morning, neither hair nor pillowcase is greasy.

Dove Intensive Repair Overnight Treatment
WHAT IT IS: A moisture serum for advance repair
WHAT IT DOES: Moisturizes and adds shine
HOW IT FEELS/SMELLS/LOOKS: It's light non-greasy white serum, and it has a mild “typical dove” scent.
WHY WE LIKE IT: It's a savior for fragile, chemically treated hair. It adds noticeable shine, softness, and bounce to hair but doesn't leave the scalp feeling oily. This too doesn’t leave your pillowcase dirty the morning after.

Olive Oil
WHAT IT IS: A home remedy
WHAT IT DOES: Deep conditions and is a natural remedy to alleviate dryness
WHY WE LIKE IT: This may not make your hair shiny soft (in comparison to the above to products) but it makes the strands stronger by decreasing hair breakage.

Conclusion: Overnight hair treatments can, in fact, improve the look and feel of hair. More than anything else, these products boost in the overall softness of their hair. We are believers of the fact that high price tag on a product does not necessarily dictate great performance. The most inexpensive products are also the best performing.
