How to Fix Bedhead Without Shower

Reasons Why Bedhead Occurs?

Bedhead occurs for many reasons, like improperly brushing the hair or sleeping on one side more than another. Both of these cause your hair to be flattened against your head which causes it to tangle and knot up. Another common reason is sleeping with wet hair; this will also cause it to twist and knot up and smell bad.

Instructions: How to Fix Bedhead Without Shower

Here we have given a step-by-step guide on how to fix bedhead without shower.

Step 1: Run Your Fingers Through It.

This will separate the knots and you can have a better idea of how far gone it is. If there are only a few knots, you can just run your fingers through it. If there are many knots, you will need to use the next two methods listed below.

Step 2: Use Your Favorite Detangling Spray.

This is an optional step, but if you don’t want to brush your hair out, this is a good option for taming those tangles and knots. It also smells great!

Step 3: Brush Your Hair.

Now that you have sprayed your hair with a detangler, use a wide-tooth comb to brush through your hair from top to bottom. Start by brushing gently, and then work into a more firm grip if necessary. Avoid pulling the brush all the way through because that could lead to excessive breakage.

Step 4: Use a Flat Iron.

Now that your hair is straight, you can run a flat iron through it to make it extra sleek or spikey if that’s what you are going for. You can also curl your hair using a flat iron. This hairstyle creates vertical curls, which look great with a messy bedhead!

Step 5: Add Some Product.

Now that your bedhead is not a big knotted mess use a good quality dry shampoo or texturizing spray to give it a matte look and sturdy hold. Use this on the root of your hair all over, as well as some on the ends. This acts as building blocks for your style so you can further brush or smooth your hair to make it stay in place all day (or night).

Step 6: Style to Your Liking.

You are now ready to style it your way! The great thing about this hairstyle is that it goes with almost any look you are trying to achieve. So whether you want a sleek, formal look or a more natural bohemian vibe, this hairdo will work for the occasion.

Tips to Prevent Bedhead:

1. A silk pillowcase allows your hair to glide smoothly over the pillow, while cotton and other fabrics can create friction on the hair shaft

2. Use a satin or silk sleep cap or scarf, which has the same effect as a silk pillowcase

3. Place a satin pillowcase inside of another pillowcase for double protection against the bedhead

4. Take a shower before bed, with the hottest water that you can tolerate for up to 30 minutes. Wash your hair thoroughly to remove any residue or oils that are not absorbed by the body. This is particularly important if you use any oils in your hair after washing it, as residual oil could increase bedhead.

5. Wash your bedding often to prevent oil and dirt from becoming embedded in the fabric

6. Wrap a satin scarf around your head before going to sleep

7. Use a silk or satin pillowcase when you sleep

Other Alternative Methods to Prevent Bedhead:

1. Invest in a Good Pillow:  

An investment in a good pillow may be the answer to your bedhead woes.  Look for pillows that are made from high-quality materials and have a brushed-satin cover. In addition, these types of pillows will retain their shape, which is great for keeping those flyaway hairs under control at night.

2. Make Your Hair Gel:  

You won’t believe how easy it is to make your hair gel. You will need a cup of warm water mixed with one teaspoon of sugar and one-quarter teaspoon of baking soda; mix well. If you have light hair, add a bit of lemon juice to the mixture. Stir ingredients together until all ingredients are very well blended. The final ingredient you will need is one tablespoon of your favorite conditioner, which should be mixed in thoroughly. Apply to damp hair and blow dry for best results.

3. Use Your Blow-Dryer:  

If there is no chance of getting to a shower, you can use your blow dryer for bedhead prevention. Start by shaking your head side to side while drying with your cool setting. When finished, shake your head one more time and turn the dryer to the warm setting. Finish off by using a metal brush to smooth the hair even more.

4. Brush Before Bed:  

You should always use a wide-tooth comb or a thick, natural bristle brush to keep your hair tangle-free while you sleep. This will ensure that you wake up with hair that is easy to manage and won’t have those annoying, impossible-to-tame tresses.

5. Make a Ponytail while Hair is Wet:  

Make a ponytail while your hair is still wet, right before bed. Then, your hair will stay out of your face all night long and be easy to style in the morning.
