What Do You Do With Your Hair Before Bed??

I have lots of hair (as pictured but some of it is behind my back lol and it is tame and wavy due to bumble and bumble curl calming cream otherwise it would be a poofy curly nest. lol) and I am prone to headaches and migraines. I cannot for the ;life of me sleep with anything in my hair so i leave it out at night and wake up sweating to death and with a tangles mess. :smileysad: I am not sure if there is a solution since I have so much hair and I don't mind waking up sweaty because it is better than waking up with a terrible headache.

Just curious to know what your bedtime hair routine is. :smileyhappy:

I have med length hair cuz I don't like dealing with the mess, but when I did have long hair, I either flip it up on the pillow, put it in a loose bun on top of my head, or loosely braid it before I go to sleep.

 

As for sweaty head, I use a beansprout shell pillow (prob hard to find here), or have a bamboo/straw mat cover over my regular pillow in the summer (you can prob find this in China town). It's pretty common in China and looks like this:

I also recently brought a pillow with a cooling gel layer on top, available anywhere, I brought mine at Walmart or target.

Excellent. That's a great idea. I think I will try these pillows and see what happens. lol Thanks beautytester!

I like to massage my scalp, put a little hydrating cream/oil on my ends, brush it & the either put it up in a loose messy bun, or french braid. 

If I only wrap the scrunchie twice around my hair, instead of 3 times then it won't tug on my hair. 

Re: What Do You Do With Your Hair Before Bed??

DO you do this every night? i only brush my hair when I wash it once or twice a week depending on how it feels......

Re: What Do You Do With Your Hair Before Bed??

I don't brush my hair when it's wet or damp. I only brush it when it's dry. I wash my hair 2x a week max, and gently comb thru it with a wide tooth or pick comb. 

I use a boar bristle brush (Mason Pearson) to distribute my natural oils through my hair. 

It's not curly, but it is massively thick so I follow a lot of the curly girl guidelines :smileywink:

Actually I don't brush it I comb it. lol I never brush my hair. only if i am doing a neat bun. :smileyhappy:

Re: What Do You Do With Your Hair Before Bed??

You have gorgeous hair!

I lay mine down all the way back. Or to the side, if I am laying down on my side. It doesn't tangle much luckily.

Re: What Do You Do With Your Hair Before Bed??

Thank you Candy357! I lay it all the way back but it gets tangled and there's so much that I just sweat a lot. So not fun. lol

Re: What Do You Do With Your Hair Before Bed??

I usually just do a loose braid at night.

Re: What Do You Do With Your Hair Before Bed??

I bun it all up and embarrassingly, have been using bang holders as of late. Yes, it is basically strips of velcro slapped on my head but it works! I can't sleep with bangs in my face.

Re: What Do You Do With Your Hair Before Bed??

Ah those velcro things ripped my hair out. 

Re: What Do You Do With Your Hair Before Bed??

lol As long as it works!! I have tried the bun but it still give me a headache. If i do a sloppy loose one it comes out and makes me sweat anyway. lol :smileysad:

Re: What Do You Do With Your Hair Before Bed??

I often put mine in a loose side braid and use one of those mini elastics to secure it at the bottom or I braid it into two braids on either side. I have a friend who sleeps with a hair net on because she has naturally curly hair and sleeping leaves her with giant tangles.
