Did you know that one of the most important things you can do to live a long and healthy life is to sleep? While it is important to balance quality sleep with a healthy diet, exercise, and mental stimulation, sleep is what helps keep our mind stay alert, our moods and emotions balanced, and even affects the quality of our hair. 

Women spend countless hours and money trying to keep their hair looking strong, healthy, and full of life. But, without quality sleep, much of that time could be wasted, and here is why.

Why Lack of Sleep Impacts Your Hair

While you sleep your body is running full speed to try to repair injuries, stem inflammation as well as process thoughts, memories, emotions, and much more. These processes require that your body goes through the nightly sleep cycles which manage your body’s nightly processes.  However, when you are not sleeping the recommended seven plus hours each night your mind doesn’t have the opportunity to properly regulate the chemicals and hormones in your body. This in turn results in both mental and physical stress which plays a critical role in maintaining healthy hair. 



Ways Your Hair Might Be Impacted by Stress and Lack of Sleep

It's Oily

A lack of sleep can be the reason you wake up with oily hair in the morning. As you sleep your mind uses that time to regulate functions in your body. However, when you are not sleeping enough those chemical and hormonal functions can be thrown off balance causing you to make too much of one thing and not enough of another. One way your body can overproduce is in the production of an oil called sebum which is created in the sebaceous glands.
