I’m all for a good beauty pampering session at home on a lazy Sunday afternoon. (Who isn’t?) However, lazy Sundays afternoons seem to be few and far between. As much as I would like to spend the day lounging with sheet masks on my face and conditioner on my hair while binge-watching TV, my endless to-do list keeps me from doing that a lot of the time. I’m assuming I’m not alone. You probably want products that fit in with your busy lifestyle, right? That’s where overnight treatments come in.
Overnight treatments are brilliant because you can put them on before you go to sleep and they work while you’re counting sheep. Then in the morning you wake up with glowing skin/shiny hair/a bronzed bod. I’m a fan of overnight face masks, but I also cannot resist a good overnight hair treatment, especially one that I can whip up myself.
You might be concerned that it will make a mess over your pillow, but with a bit of plastic wrap or a shower cap, things will stay mess-free. And even if you do get a bit of leakage, the hydrated, shimmering hair you get will be worth it. Keep scrolling to see the easy DIYs that will take care of your hair as you sleep.
1. Olive Oil, Mayo, and Honey Conditioner
Yeah, putting olive oil…or mayo…or honey in your hair might not seem that appealing, but trust me and the DIY, it’s worth it.
2. Honey and Coconut Oil
All it takes is about a tablespoon of these two ingredients to get better hair. You in?
3. Aloe Vera Juice, Banana, Avocado, and Fenugreek Powder
Fenugreek powder isn’t a pantry staple like bananas and avocados, but it’s worth investing in for this DIY.
4. Eggs, Castor Oil, Banana, and Honey Hair Treatment
News flash: Castor oil is just as brilliant as olive oil and coconut oil for getting silky smooth locks.
5. Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Honey, and Egg
Want to make your hair grow faster? Of course you do. Apply this mixture to locks. Forget about finding five hours in the afternoon and put it on at night.
6. Nourishing Oils
Apply one, or two, or three of these essential oils to ends before going to sleep so they can nourish locks overnight.
7. Five Hair Masks
I hope you’re happy because I’ve just given you five nourishing hair masks with this DIY.
8. Honey and Olive Oil Split End Treatment
Dealing with split ends? Show those ends some TLC with this two-ingredient treatment.
9. Coconut Oil Hair Mask
This hair mask has one ingredient. And chances are you already have some coconut oil lurking on your cupboard. So, what are you waiting for?
10. Whipped Avocado, Honey, and Olive Oil Hair Mask
Grab that whisk and whip up (huck huck) this hair treatment.
11. Coconut Milk Conditioner
We use coconut oil, so why not coconut milk? Apply this to wet hair, damp locks, or dry ones.
12. Dandruff Treatment
Spoiler alert: The two ingredients you need are coconut oil and tea tree oil.
13. Hair Growth Treatment
I know that this is a longer ingredient list and it wants you to leave it on for 16 hours, but give it a try over the weekend. What do you have to lose?
14. Three Aloe Vera Hair Masks
You get three hair masks with this DIY. Experiment with the different ones depending on what you have in your cupboard.
15. Coconut Lavender Hair Mask
Lavender isn’t just soothing to tresses and scalps; it will also help you relax so you’ll sleep better. Sweet.
16. Beer, Egg, and Banana Hair Growth Treatment
Want longer hair without extensions? Then you’re going to want to put some egg, banana, and beer in that mane of yours.
