If you're like me with long, curly, mermaid hair who often only have 2-4 hours of sleep a day (oh, hey thesis! :< ) and taking a full bath in the morning is not an option as the old generation says that it's bad for your health, i end up doing a half bath which leaves my hair untouched. How do you combat unruly morning hair without doing the only known effective option which is the 'taking a bath' and wetting it? I am not a hair expert but I have ways which are so effective that I just have to share them to you as I know that having unruly morning hair is such a pain, especially if you have natural curly hair.
TIP # 1
Braid your hair before sleeping. You'll wake up with amazing curls! If you have straight hair, then you'll wake up with a wavy hair which is easier for you to style rather than blow drying it.
TIP # 2
Take a bath at least an hour before you sleep then do tip # 1. If I am aware that I have to work all night to finish my plates/drawings, what I do is that I take a bath before starting to work, then I do tip #1.
TIP # 3
If you don't want to braid your hair, tie it up in a bun instead. I do this sometimes but I still prefer braiding it since for me, sleeping with a braided hair is much more comfortable than in a bun. But the result of my hair in sleeping with a bun is nice too.
TIP # 4
Use vitress hair polish and cuticle coat. Before sleeping, use vitress! When you wake up with unruly morning hair, use vitress!
TIP # 5
Use silk pillowcase. Studies show that silk pillowcases prevent sleep creases and bedhead. :)
