Also to avoid damage you should always remember to comb or brush hair starting from the ends working your way up gently to the roots.
Silk or Satin Pillow Covers and Sleeping Caps
We shouldn’t only aim to protect our hair during the day but also at nights too. It is important to keep the moisture in our hair and to avoid it from breaking off or getting damaged. It is therefore important to wear the appropriate sleeping cap and use the best pillow cases. The Satin or Silk material is known to the best fabric and texture for the hair. It not only prevents damage but also helps locks in the moisture in the hair leaving the hair looking fresh and moisturized in the morning.

Results of new growth should appear between 4-6 weeks.
