Knotted / Tangled Hair from Sleeping (Bedhead)
This is a common complaint, but one that I haven't heard many people address. I don't
know if people think that they just have to 'live with it' or what, but this can be helped.
Most people don't realize it, but the pillows we sleep on can be very hard on our hair,
especially if we are restless sleepers who toss and turn a lot.
Some women with long hair combat this problem by braiding their hair before
sleep, while others use a sleeping cap to protect their hair. These are both good
suggestions. The problem is that the overlapping scales that form the cuticle of the hair
get roughed up by rubbing against the fibers of our pillowcases and bedding.
If braiding and sleeping caps aren't your thing, try getting silk or satin pillowcases.
Not only are they luxurious and comfortable, but they cause less friction and are gentler
on the hair. The result is less hair damage and more "good hair days" in the mornings.
