Don't you just hate when you've washed and styled your hair, and it's all flat and lifeless when you wake up the next day? Some of you may be lucky and retain most of the look you had the day before, but the rest of us may not be so lucky.
How do you get your hair to behave the next morning without having to wash, re-style and waste an extra half-hour or so before you rush to work? Celebrity hairstylist Creighton Bowman shares a few tips:
Bette Davis and Marilyn Monroe used satin pillowcases for their skin and hair. Satin and tightly woven silk (a natural fiber) pillowcases help keep your hair from creasing and gaining static. “It’s the oldest trick in the book,” says Creighton. “The only thing I can figure is perhaps the cool fabric keeps your scalp from getting hot.”
Start styling your next-day look while you sleep! To keep strands from developing unwanted frizz, put your hair in loose braids or buns. This helps you save some grooming time int he morning. “A loose bun helps keep a beach wave, even in stick-straight hair,” says Creighton. But if you want perfect waves, don't tie your ends too tightly with an elastic or you'll see a noticeable crease when you wake up.
Heat it Up
Sleepers who lie on their sides may end up with unevenly volumized hair. In other words you'll end up with one flat side while the other remains volumized. “It only takes a second to blast your roots with the blow-dryer to even things up,” Creighton advises. And because hair tends to become oilier while you sleep, Creighton suggests using some dry shampoo before heat-styling. Bang up
If you have a fringe, you'll know that dealing with your bangs can be troublesome. “The problem with bangs is that they're very high maintenance, and they have to be restyled every single day,” says Creighton. Get yourself some pretty duck clips, or discreet bobby pins that allow you to sweep and pin your bangs to the side. If your bangs are long enough, you can tease it and sweep them upwards to create a bit of volume to create quiff bangs.
