Ten Ways to Wake Up Without Bed Head

Woman With BedHead Tangled Hair

Woman With BedHead Tangled HairI have thick, wavy hair with layers throughout, so I’m naturally predisposed to waking up each morning with my head resembling a bird’s nest. Less tangled and frizzy hair in the morning will both speed up your routine and end AM rushes to the bathroom for an emergency brushing session – plus, less brushing out tangles means less shedding and physical damage, which will lead to longer, stronger hair.

Spare your significant other from equating you with the Bride of Frankenstein in the morning and follow these helpful tips to beat the dreaded bed head:

  1. If your hair’s not very long, you can simply bobby pin it to the top of your head and wear a shower cap to bed. (The plastic ones are less frizzifying than the fabric kind, but they’re also less comfy to sleep on.)
  2. Smooth a de-frizzing cream on damp hair before bedtime. Wrap sections of hair around your head and pin near the nape of your neck, then tie on a silk scarf. Gently brush in the morning.
  3. The most classic and simplest trick: Tie your hair into a low ponytail before heading off to bed.
  4. Rub a little leave-in conditioner into your damp hair and braid it into two braids. (One braid will give you larger waves, but may also create lumps on the sides of your head.) When you wake up, finger-comb. You’ll have natural waves that aren’t at all messy.
  5. Brush hair out with a plastic bristled brush rather than horsehair or the like. Plastic bristles create less static.
  6. Stop washing your hair every day. Natural oils smooth your hair and ward off frizz and tangles.
  7. Put it in rollers! If you don’t want a super curly or unpredictable look, don’t worry: there are plenty of massive rollers available now that will simply make your hair look voluminous.
  8. A silk or satin pillowcase may help, since they have a smoother surface and are less likely to grab stray strands.
  9. Flat iron before bed instead of in the morning. (Please don’t do both and then come comment that your hair dried up and broke off. Heat styling is hard on your hair, so be nice to it.)
  10. Stop propping up your pillow to sleep – it rubs against the crown of your hair and creates tangles. If you’re not willing to sacrifice comfort for beauty, you’re probably on the wrong website.
