Hair Answers: Sleeping on wet hair

Q by Lea: Reagan, I love your blogs, and your hair. I have wavy hair that’s just past my shoulders (similar to yours) which I like to wear natural. I know how to style it with a diffuser to wear it curly. My problem is that I prefer to *wash and style my hair at night (mornings are way too hectic), but sleeping on it flattens my hair and makes it frizzy. Is there a way to keep a naturally wavy style overnight so I don’t have to wash it every morning?

A by Reagan: This is a tough question. It is so hard to change your routine when you are used to it. But after I have just answered a question about wearing a hairstyle for multiple days, I am wondering why you *shampoo every day? It would really cut out on time, effort and product if you started to stretch your style out longer. You’ll be a changed woman. Quote me on that!

Your question is actually in a way very similar to Julie’s, even though I think I got your question first! I would recommend that if you absolutely prefer 100% to *shampoo your hair at night, then you should just do a 5-10 minute touch up in the morning. The same way I suggested to Julie, i.e. spray with a little water, use a little product, do a little scrunching, maybe a little defusing..voila! It works for me, and I am a crazy sleeper. I don’t know what I do in the night, but I have wanted to video myself sleeping just to get some lifelong questions answered about what goes on there….

I so hope this works for you, because I am not about to tell you to change up your beloved routine. I lift weights every morning at 7 am while I watch re-runs of saved by the bell. Nobody in the world could convince me to change that.

Love,

Reagan. Your neighborhood hairdresser on fire.

    I have the same problem with my hair, except not because I do it at night, but because I only wash twice a week (you should be proud). I found sleeping on a satin pillowcase also helps the curls stay better and are less flat in the am! Try it, you’ll love it!

    I have naturally curly, just past my shoulder length hair – and I love the way my hair looks in the morning after going to bed with wet hair. I shampoo, then apply product, then go to sleep – and when I wake up my hair is soft and touchable and curly. Way easier than blowdrying or waiting around all day for my hair to air dry.

    My problem with going to bed with wet hair is that is bleaches my linens. It doesn’t matter what kind of shampoo that I use and it usually only happens on new sheets…even after they have been pre-washed. I have ruined 2 sets of 500tc egyptian cotton sheets and pillow cases…they look like they have bleach stains on them and it is from my wet hair. I am baffled and hate to keep ruining my expensive linens.
