When we think of our ideal sleeping environment, we picture a soft down comforter, an array of fluffy pillows, and perhaps some soothing flute music to lull us to sleep. Nowhere in this scenario does sopping wet hair make an appearance; but in real life, it just might.
We’ve all been there! You wanted (or needed) to shower before bed, but don’t have the time or energy to dry your hair before you go to sleep.
In your dreams, you wake up with a perfectly tousled look. In nightmarish reality, you wake up with flat, frizzy, or crimped hair that takes forever to wrangle.
Here I am with amazing tips to sleeping with wet hair. Keep scrolling to know more:
If you want to sleep on wet hair (frequently), I suggest you invest in a good satin pillow case. It allows your hair to move around freely, so you can just throw it up over the top of the pillow when it’s wet which then further helps prevent creases in the hair. It’s really good for your face too because it won’t cause wrinkles.
If you have curly hair, flip your head over, wrap a scrunchie around it once, and let your strands hang loose. Paired with a satin pillowcase, this is the best way to ensure your curls look springy and smooth when you wake up.
You could also spritz your hair with a bit of straightening spray, flip your part to the side, then use a flat, no-crease clip to hold them in place all night long. This works for if you’re switching up your part, or even if you’re just trying to preserve your blowout.
Want to wakeup with beachy waves? You could part your hair in sections and make buns for each section. When you wake, you would have gorgeous beachy waves. A high bun would give you loose waves.
Another way to prevent creases in your hair while your sleep? Use a scrunchie, which won’t leave marks or dents. Simply fasten your hair at the top of your head in a secure bun. Don’t have a scrunchie? Just cut the top off a sock and use it as a makeshift hair tie.
If your hair is prone to frizz, this nighttime ritual might become your new addiction. Simply spritz your wet locks with a leave-in conditioner or apply some argan oil. Comb the solution evenly throughout your hair. Wrap your hair in a silk scarf and leave it on overnight. When you wake up, remove the scarf and finger comb your hair.
So the next time you have no option other than sleeping with wet hair, use these tricks and tips to wake up with gorgeous hair with no creases!
