WHAT IS HAIR SLUGGING? Combining wisdom from K-Beauty and Ayurvedic traditions (think hair oiling), slugging your strands is an overnight technique designed to lock in hydration and prevent breakage. Basically, it involves coating the lengths and ends of the hair in a hair oil of choice and covering it in a microfibre turban or, in TikTok’s case, a fuzzy sock and securing it with a silk scrunchie. Then simply hit the hay, wake up and wash your hair and relish in your new supple, shiny locks.
WHO SHOULD BE HAIR SLUGGING? Just as certain skin types benefit more from skin slugging than others, hair slugging is also skewed to benefiting drier, curlier hair types more than already silky strands. If you have thick hair, textured hair or hair that tends to be dry and brittle, hair slugging will help to deeply penetrate the hair with lasting hydration and also prevent moisture loss. For low porosity hair types, this is a great technique for sealing the cuticle and reducing dryness.
