Davines OI All In One Hair Milk
"Evenly saturate your hair with about 10 pumps (roots to ends) with a hydrating milk (this one is even light enough for those with very fine hair!) Find your natural part and section your hair in two halves. Begin twisting your hair around your finger towards the back of your head and continue until you reach the bottom of each section. Use bobby pins to secure the twisted section across the top of your head (like a headband) and repeat on the opposite side. When you wake up, shake the style out for consistent, controlled waves." - Gabby Fishman, stylist for TakamichiHAIR
Aussie 3-Minute Miracle Strong Treatment
"Washing and conditioning your hair the night before can save you loads of time in the morning and style your hair while you sleep! My favorite product is the new Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Strong. It gives you the feeling of a salon deep conditioner in 3 minutes! TIP: Bring a large-toothed comb or a paddle brush in the shower to evenly distribute the product. Sing your favorite song and rinse! After loosely air or blow drying at night, put your hair in a bun and wake up with gorgeous waves!" - Sarah Potempa, Aussie Celebrity Stylist
Environ B-Active Sebugel A
"Cleanse with a mild, salicylic acid cleanser (as long as you're not allergic to aspirin) and lactic acid-infused toner to exfoliate skin, followed with a light moisturizer to supply skin with essential Vitamin A. This normalizes oil output and aids in healing and soothing processes." - Candace Noonan, Master Esthetician for Environ Skin Care.

Motions Naturally You! Hydrate My Curls Pudding
"Natural hair has many textures and levels, and part of the transitioning process is learning how to train your hair. The best way to create consistent texture is the double-strand twist using a nourishing curl conditioner to define and reduce frizz. Wrap your hair in a satin bonnet or scarf before going to bed to protect your hair and prevent matting against your pillow at night. You’ll always wake up with intact curls!" - Ursula Stephen, Motions Celebrity Stylist
Sunday Riley Start Over Eye Cream
"Hydration is the key to beautiful skin! It's super important to moisturize before bed, so use a beautiful, rich moisturizer to keep your face hydrated all night so you’ll wake up to soft, supple skin. Go for a special treatment around the eyes to help reduce puffiness – you’ll love how refreshed you’ll look as soon as you wake up!" - Romy Soleimani, Editor-at-Large for Beauty.com.
