Everyone should have a basic haircare routine. A regular regime works wonders and can rejuvenate dry or tired hair, repair damage, and even provide gentle care for sensitive scalps. But the best haircare routines don’t end when the sun sets. In fact, the importance of a nighttime haircare routine cannot be overstated when it comes to addressing common hair problems.

In this article, you’ll learn how to keep your hair healthy looking and strong by introducing a simple nighttime haircare routine. Whether you feel your hair is damaged, split, or dry, discover how Gliss Night Elixir can be used to repair hair overnight and become part of a healthy care routine that leaves your hair feeling beautiful, soft, and regenerated.

Step by step: How to protect your hair overnight

For many people, a daily haircare routine can be a struggle. When you’re out and about, it’s hard to find time, let alone remember to brush and use products during the day. A nighttime routine can oftentimes be easier to master in this regard. Just like brushing your teeth or washing your face, incorporating haircare into your bedtime routine allows for overnight rejuvenation and is a simple way to maintain healthy-looking hair.

Benefit from your own nighttime haircare routine by following the steps outlined below:

  1. Brush your hair: Spend a few minutes gently brushing your hair from root to tip to remove any knots and tangles that may have accumulated during the day. This makes it easier to apply products.
  2. Wash your hair (optional): Wash your hair as you normally would with shampoo and conditioner.
  3. Apply nourishing products: This is where products like Gliss Night elixir come in. Gently work some of the product into your hair, particularly focusing on any dry or damaged areas.
  4. Cover your hair (optional): While Gliss Night Elixir leaves no traces on your pillow, you may still want to cover your hair when you sleep for other reasons. Even when resting, the average person tends to move 40-50 times per night and covering your hair can help to prevent tangles and additional breakage.

Of course, the steps in your daily and nighttime haircare routine will also depend on your hair type or style.

Gliss Night Elixir from Schwarzkopf is a regenerative care treatment that is specifically designed for effective nighttime haircare routines. Using the innovative HaptIQ System, it repairs and strengthens all hair types for long-lasting results that you can see and feel.

How can Gliss Night Elixir benefit your hair?

Gliss Night Elixir uses the HaptIQ System to provide a range of benefits when used as part of a regular nighttime treatment routine. The innovative formula works overnight to repair damage and protect hair from future breakages, resulting in visibility improved texture and shine.

To maximize the effects of the treatment, work 1-2 pumps of Gliss Night Elixir into your hair and leave it in overnight. The product can be used on both wet and dry hair. Once you wake up, simply brush the product through your hair, fix your favorite hairstyle, and you’re ready to start your day! For best results, apply Gliss Night Elixir every evening before bed.

The Gliss Night Elixir range includes different products designed to treat specific problems in various hair types. Want dependable, all-round protection for heavily damaged hair?

How does the HaptIQ System strengthen hair?

An integral part of the Gliss Night Elixir formula, the HaptIQ System deeply regenerates hair from the inside out – and all while you sleep.

Creating micro-bonds within the hair fiber and subsequently enveloping the hair with a protective layer, the HaptIQ System repairs your hair and effectively protects it from potential sources of damage, such as chemicals, heat, and styling products. Oils provide moisture and minimize friction between the strands which reduces breakage and split ends, an effect that is amplified when you leave the product in overnight. What’s more, the process strengthens and smoothens, leaving you with healthier-looking hair that feels stronger, even after one application.

Don’t sleep on a nighttime haircare routine

Now you’ve learned how to take care of your hair at night, you’ll soon realize that it’s just as crucial as a daytime routine. Your individual hairstyle will dictate your personal regimen, and Gliss Night Elixir is an important part of it. With an array of benefits, you can give your hair the best overnight care and enhance its natural radiance – all it takes is a few minutes of your time before bed and a few extra brushes in the morning!
