How should I protect my hair at night?
That is solely up to your discretion. We will only recommend that you NEVER go to sleep with wet hair. Sleeping on wet hair will cause your hair to tangle, which may cause your hair to lose its natural curl pattern. Be sure that your hair is dry before bed. Wearing a bonnet or silk headscarf is recommended.

We would suggest putting your hair in a protective style to keep the hair from tangling. Be sure to wash and condition the hair after swimming.

Wet your extensions and it will retract back to its natural state. Excessive heat will make the process harder to return to the curl pattern.
