1. Use a silk pillowcase

The 22-year-old’s first tip is that you should invest in a silk pillowcase instead of using a plain cotton option.

“The first game-changer for me was using a mulberry silk pillowcase,” the hair model said.

‘Silk is a natural and hypoallergenic ingredient. It also has a very smooth surface which means there is less friction which prevents hair damage and wrinkles.

Some of the best silk pillowcases on the market include options of Silvi – which has anti-acne properties – and midnight mischief.

2. Use a silk turban

If silk pillowcases “are not your thing” or you just want double the hair protection while you sleep, the 22-year-old recommends a silk turban.

“They’re just as effective and do the same job as a silk pillowcase,” she explained.

All you have to do is put your hair in a loose ponytail and then make sure all your hair is tucked into the turban.

The most important thing to remember is that it is essential to use real silk because any other material will simply shave the moisture from your hair.

To recreate the rinse on your own, she recommends adding a few sprigs of rosemary to a pot with boiling water and boiling them together for 10 minutes.

If you wish, you can add a few drops of rosemary oil to aid in mixing.

Once done, she said you should pour it into a jug or container, let it cool and then take it to the shower.

“Do your shampoo and conditioner as usual, add the rosemary rinse to your hair and don’t wash it out,” the Aussie Rapunzel said.

“The results are soft hair and hair growth. It’s easy to make and completely natural!
