Default Sleeping with wet hair

i read a lot of you ladies washing and styling your hair at night but how do you sleep on it when its wet. In the past when i have slept on wet hair i never got a good nights sleep and my hair is still wet in the morning, not just damp.

I had the same problem and hated it. Now after I wash my hair, I put it in about 8-12 braids. Then, I put a satin scarf over that then wrap a towel around my head then go to sleep.

I can't sleep well with wet hair either, not unless I'm doing a DT, but even then it's uncomfortable. Plus, my hair looks horrible when I wake - perhaps it's still too short to try this.

it's normal to be damp when u take the towel off but is yours wet or damp when u wake up? what products do you use in your hair? and do u style it under the towel?

I have an idea that may help.

What I do with my hair is wash it at night, apply the styling products i'll use on it. Then, I finger comb it back, so that if I shake my hair it'll fall back into place and not be stuck straight back (like if you brushed it).

Then I (don't laugh!) wrap my hair with saran wrap until it's fully covered and the saran wrap is no longer see through. Afterwards, I tie a satin scarf over the saran wrap.

My hair has not once leaked through the saran wrap and my pillow remains dry. I sleep like normal.

In the morning my hair is damp (not wet) but it allows me to make any minor adjustments I need to (in regards to styling) and go!

It's a bit ghetto (lol) but it works!

I would LOVE to see a picture of this!!! LMAO

I wash my hair, put it in a ponytail, braid it, and sleep with a towel on the pillow. When I wake up my hair will still be damp, but I guess I've gotten used to it.

cool idea Naya. I used to use a plastic cap instead. I think LadyL wants to know how to wake up w/ dry hair though.

If you wash it earlier in the evening so that it has some drying time before going to bed, would that help?

Or do you diffuse your hair at all? If so, if you partially diffuse before going to bed, would it be dry in the morning?

Or how about overnight plopping? Do 3c/4a's plop? I'm planning to try that myself, though I haven't yet.

Mine's a different texture and maybe longer than ya'll's, but I can wash mine, apply product, scrunch out the worst of the water and then go to bed with the length of the hair spread out behind me on the pillow. Unless I toss around a lot, I usually have nice, dry curls in the morning.

thanks all for replying. i have tried sleeping on wet hair for DT, twists or plopping with hardly any product for wash and go hair. Now that winter is upon us, i was trying not to have another year of walking out the house with damp hair. my hair when dry reaches my shoulders on a good styling day and is mid-back i guess if i pull it straight.

Auntnett, i am going to take your suggestion and do my hair earlier in the night, so it has time to air dry before i go to sleep. Guess i shouldn't procrastinate.

thanks for the suggestions, thus far.......Naya, i cant wait to see a picture. i will try saran wrap for my next overnight DT! though i am sure the hubby will be fussing that i am bringing the kitchen into the bathroom again to make a salad for my hair.

wow naya, that's a lot of saran wrap! but i will try it.
Last night i conditioner washed and rinsed and then applied more conditioner and put my hair in two ponytails (for buns in the morning) with a scarf. I didnt sleep with the towel wrapped around my head but instead on the pillow. My hair is noticeably drier. Thanks

If there is such as thing as plopping while in braids, I guess that's what you could call what I do. I apply the qhemet and devacurl set it free, braid it up into 5-10 braids and wrap it in a towel for 10-20 mins or until I'm ready to climb into bed. At that time, I tie on my scarf and it doesn't feel like wet head to me anymore. In the AM, my hair is only slightly damp...as in it's usually dry before I leave the house and I have hella thick hair.

I normally just squeeze my hair our real good, blot a good few times with an old t-shirt, throw some product in there then put it up in some twists or a bun. I don't sleep with a scarf or anything, just a pillow. When i wake up my hair is normally dry.

I only do my hair at night (I'd rather sleep in the morning)! On nights when I'm not doing anything after work, I'll get home and co wash and style usally around 7pm. When bed time comes around 12:30- 1am I'll be partially dry so I'll diffuse for a few minutes before going to sleep with a satin cap on. In the AM the steam from the shower usually puffs up my curls, then I'll scrunch with some oil (olive, jojoba, avacado or coconut) and go! This has been my routine for the last year and It works great. Except on the weeks when I have something planned most nights then I have to rock the pony puff for a few days!

Just wanted to say i've just checked out your fotki and your hair is gorgeous - how I'd like mine to look when it grows long enough - how long did it take you to grow it to that length??

Wow thank you! It's been over 3 years since I last relaxed my hair. I did a very gradual transition opting instead for several small chops rather that one big chop. I just could not part with my hair even if it was damaged lol! Hang in there! I have never regretted going natural!
