Bed head is a common issue where hair becomes tangled and frizzy overnight, causing frustration and causing time spent on sleep. To combat this issue, it's essential to prevent it before it occurs by trying various methods to keep hair calm and tangle-free throughout the night. This will help you wake up feeling refreshed and ready for your daily activities.
How To Prevent Bed Head And Wake Up With Beautiful Hair
Dry and Brush Your Hair Before Going To Sleep:
To ensure a healthy sleep, it's essential to dry your hair before going to bed, as wet hair can cause tangles and snarls. If you shower at night, use a hairdryer to dry your hair before bed. If you prefer air drying, shower a few hours before bed to avoid bed head. To prevent mold and gross bedding, sleep with dry hair. Before bed, brush your hair from the ends to the roots to prevent tangles and ripping. If you have naturally curly hair, don't brush it.
Scrunchie in a leave-in conditioner to tame frizz and keep hair silky and smooth:
Avoid putting conditioner near the scalp, which can make hair look greasy. Use a satin scrunchy to hold it in place overnight for shorter hair. Fold a smooth silk satin scrunchie to create a shape, or use a double-layer satin bonnet and tie it over your hair and behind your ears. This will prevent clumps from sticking up in the morning and frizziness from rubbing against your pillowcase.
Styled into a top knot or a loose bun:
To prevent tangling, use a loose top knot or a loose bun on the top of your head. Leave it slightly loose to avoid a mark in the center, and remove it in the morning. This method also protects curls overnight. Braid your hair down the center for beachy waves and secure it with hair ties. Undo the braids when you wake up to reveal the waves. For added waves, spray sea salt spray before leaving. Cover your hair with a YANIBEST double-layer satin bonnet; it helps maximize the hair oil's efficiency and ensures overnight hair care without oil leakage.
Sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase:
YANIBEST Silk smooth satin pillowcases are a luxury solution for preventing frizz and dry hair during sleep. They are friction-free, allowing hair to glide freely, reducing snagging and damage. Silk smooth satin also keeps the face healthy by retaining moisture from natural oils produced during sleep.
Use a humidifier in your bedroom:
A humidifier in your bedroom can help moisturize and smooth your hair, especially for curly hair. To give your hair a polished look, spray it with water and use your hands or brush to smooth it out. Avoid making your hair wet, as this can cause it to dry throughout the morning. Use warm or lukewarm water when taking a shower to avoid frizz. If your hair looks oily, use dry shampoo to revive it. If you have time, curl or straighten your hair with a straightener or curling iron. You can also use heat styling tools to refresh curls or straight hair from the day before. Remember to use warm water to avoid frizz and oiliness.
To prevent bed head, tie hair up while sleeping, use a humidifier, avoid wet hair, brush hair before bed, and avoid hair accessories that can dent or tug on the hair. YANIBEST recommends tying hair in loose knots or braids or wearing a silk bonnet cap. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase or satin pillow can improve hair health by reducing friction and frizz. Silk pillowcases are ideal for naturally curly hair as they won't dry out curls like cotton pillowcases.
