Do you often wake up in the morning and look in the mirror and see a lion’s mane on top of your head? That’s what we call Morning hair or bed hair. Despite your best efforts and the time, it takes to style it, you don’t always manage to do it. Sometimes you just avoid looking in the mirror, not to mention on days when the humidity is a little higher.
It’s best not to leave your house at all then. Or maybe there is a simpler and quicker solution for it?
Of course, it also depends on what type of hair each of us has, whether it’s inherently easy or difficult to style.
Sometimes we can try lots of foolproof lotions, sprays, creams, and shampoos, but it’s not always the best solution. Your hair still seems to have a life of its own. It twists in all directions and gets static, unfortunately, most of us have this problem.
Don’t worry, I’ve got a few tips for you today which I’ve tested on myself and will share my knowledge with you all.
How do we get this unruly hair of ours under control?
Few tips to prevent your morning from going crazy every morning:
- Wash your hair with a gentle shampoo, preferably herbal because it doesn’t have ingredients that weigh your hair down. I myself have a problem with fly-aways all the time, my hair has no volume but these few things have made it a lot easier.
- Don’t sleep with wet hair.
- Try to wash your hair with lukewarm or cold water on a daily basis, as higher temperatures lead to the fibers in our hair opening up, which results in quicker frizz.
- Your hair is at its most vulnerable state when it is wet. That is why you must dry your hair (air or blow dry it) before you go to sleep. Leave the hair wash to the morning hours, it will help with taming them.
- Sleep on satin or silk pillowcases. These can help to keep your hair smooth and less frizzed up. It’s not essential but a nice touch if you like satin pillowcases of course. Silk is a great material that doesn’t cause friction and damage to your hair as you sleep.
- Trim your hair regularly, e.g. every two months. The ends of our hair open up faster than the rest of our hair, so they also wear out faster, which means they split. If you have long hair, cut it by a few centimeters. It makes a real difference, and it’s so easy.
- Brush the hair before going to bed. Brushing offers plenty of benefits to the hair. It evenly distributes moisture and oil from the scalp to the strands, removes remaining hair products, and preps your hair for the next day.
- If you have long hair, twist it into a bun. The next day, remove the hair tie, let your hair loose then brush it. Apply a leave-in conditioner to get rid of fly-away and stray hairs.
Few simple ways to tame your morning hair:
- A simple brush or comb of your hair every morning. Even if your morning hair is not that messy that day, it is a good start to tame the mess.
- There are spray-in conditioners to ease the knots and tangles out, we do have some in our store. They will lose your hair a bit.
- If you have time to deal with wet hair, this is the easiest and most effective option that you can try:
1. You need to wet the comb or brush with water.
2. Apply the gel or mousse.
3. Blow dry your hair.
The key is if your hair is wet then is more likely to get brushed and styled.
Always remember if you are happy with the result, please finish it off with hairspray to save your time.
Moisturize the ends of your hair.
If you take a closer look at your bedhead, especially if you have longer hair, you’ll notice that all the tangling and frizz going on happen below your ears, and mostly where the hair ends.
What you should understand about bedhead is that it starts with the ends of your hair. Take a closer look at your hair when you are suffering from bed hair. Oftentimes, it’s more likely that the top portion of your hair would look normal, but the bottom part would be frizzy and dry.
To prevent that, the best thing that you can do is moisturize your ends at night before you go to sleep.
After the initial time, it’s time to style your hair
Style With Heat This is a great trick. if you just woke up with a bedhead, try not to panic. You can always style your hair using heat. Take your comb or a small brush and try brushing your hair while also drying it with a hairdryer. You can also use a curling iron if you have one. After you’re done, simply apply some hairspray, and you’re good to go. No one will tell you had a terrible bedhead an hour ago.
Once you have achieved the right volume for your hair, pour olive oil or any hair shine product into your palm then apply it evenly at the tips of your hair. besides simple shine to your hair, it will also seal in split ends.
