Today on StyleWise we are talking about 3 ways you can go to bed with damp hair, and wake up ready to go. I am NOT a morning person (or a shower person), so I have been bathing at night since I was a kid. These three techniques have gotten me the best results over years of experimenting, and the health of my hair has greatly improved since I am limiting my heat use to touch-ups in the morning. Now, I will admit that there is the occasional wake-up to 'What the Hell?', but it's really nothing a great pony or braid can't hide. Let's get StyleWise, shall we?
Tips for overnight hair success:
1- None of these techniques will work on WET hair... it should be at least 80% dry before you style, otherwise you'll still have damp hair in the morning and be starting from scratch.
2- Frizz reducing products are a must. I use MoroccanOil (use 'Moore Hair Design' as your salon referral to purchase) and Living Proof Prime every time I style, but especially when sleep-styling.
3- Wrap hair in a scarf to sleep to avoid creating fuzz while you roll around. Or at the very least sleep on a satin pillowcase. Never sleep on a towel unless you want to look like you were struck by lightning.
4- Loose is best. Wrap buns, twists, and braids extremely loose- so that air flow is better and you're likely to be completely dry in the a.m.
5- Never use a traditional hair tie/elastic to secure overnight styles. You will 100% have dents and marks in the hair when you wake. Instead use a cushioned pony O or scrunchy, or my new fave Goody Spin Pins and Bun Twists.
