Sometimes, if you wake up right, if you perfectly untangle yourself from your dream and burst forth into a new morning, it can totally make your day. Any time you can wake up on the right side of the bed is already ground for declaring it a good day.
For a lot folks though, this quick assessment gets thrown out the window immediately after they get out of bed and see themselves in the mirror for the first time. For what they see when they stare at their reflections is wild, messy and hideous. See, a common condition for every person on this planet is waking up with bed head.
Bed head is the term they use for the unruly and ghastly state of one’s wig after a night’s sleep. Hair is flattened on one side and flared on the other. It affects men and women, young and old, curly and straight. This unsightly condition can fortunately be cured. Follow these easy tips and you can get rid of bed head:
Morning shower. The best way to get rid of bed head for both men and women is to take a shower right after waking up. Your hair will be tangled and stiff so getting wet is a no-brainer. If you do not want to take a complete shower, washing your hair in the sink will do.
Dry hair. Many people take a shower before going to bed. The problem with this and bed head is that people do not allow their hair to dry completely before going to sleep. Letting your hair dry before lying down reduces the chances of bed head. If you do not want to take a complete shower, washing your hair in the sink will do.
Satin pillowcases. Look for satin pillowcases the next time you are out shopping. They prevent bed head, split ends and breakage. Satin is smooth and it lets your hair gently slide on it.
Shampoo and conditioner. Use the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair when you shower. Taking proper care of your hair will ensure that it stays beautiful for as long as possible.
Tying your hair. For the girls, if you really need to get out of the house right away and have no time to wash your hair use a butterfly clip or a scrunchy to keep your hair bundled and in place.
Go bald. For women, this may be worse than bed head but for men it could be a radical new look. Shaving your head solves bed head by removing the source of the problem: your hair! Some men who do not want their locks cut off may object, but if you are not afraid of trying something new, this might work for you. The next time you are at your barber, ask him what he thinks of you going bald. You never know what this change might bring.
Bed head should not get you down as it is easily treatable. Just follow this easy guide to getting rid of bed head and you will wake up every morning with a smile on your face and a song in your heart, no matter what your hair looks like.
