Say No to Bed Hair: How to Wake Up Ready for a Good Hair Day

No one wants to wake up with bed hair and there is little chance of going back to bed. Especially when you have a long day ahead. However, there should be a solution to avoid looking like you just woke up!

The most common problem on waking is flat or frizzy hair! When styled correctly, it can give a chic look but, when it isn’t it looks like you just scrambled out the house with your hair all static.

But before we discuss bed hair, let’s take a look at the types of hair and how they tie into why your hair refuses to cooperate after waking up.

What Causes Frizzy Hair?

Genetics do play a significant role as to why frizzy hair is caused. This hair type also tends to get worse, owing to factors such as unbalanced diets or poor lifestyle habits. However, incorrect hair care practices can equally worsen frizzy hair, which is why using natural, sulfate-free, and paraben-free products like the Iles Formula Shampoo and Conditioner, and Finishing Protection Serum found in their Signature Collection, which works wonders in creating frizz-free hair. The antioxidant-rich ingredients incorporated in these solutions include active vegetal root juices and vitamin B5. After just one wash, you can see your hair transformed from rough frizz or straw-like appearance into a sumptuous spun silk hair texture.

Let’s Take a Deeper Look: 

  1. Heredity Factors

As mentioned earlier, the cause of frizzy hair has a strong genetic component. Since this hair type is dominantly inherited, if parents or older members of your family have textured or frizzy hair of some kind, there is a high probability of it being passed down to you.

Many believe that hair straightening treatments will alter their hair quality, but the hair that grows from the roots will remain textured. For more tips on how to battle frizzy hair at home without expensive salon treatments, explore our blog on 3 Ways to Maintain the Curl and Minus the Frizz!

  1. Clogged Scalp Pores

It may not seem obvious but clogging of the scalp’s pores can also cause frizzy hair. Hair grows through the follicles and is pushed onto the scalp. When the pores are clogged with dirt, the follicles may become deformed.

To ensure your textured hair or frizz has a chance to become a well-formed curl,  check out the Iles Formula Hair Turban Towel. It is an extra-absorbent and luxuriously soft micro towel that quickly removes excess water from textured hair without disturbing the curl formation, hence helping reassure a great no frizz day.

Bed Head, No More

It is best to work on hair and improve it from the ground up. Here is how to not wake up with bed hair:  Silk pillowcases will prevent friction that creates knotting that creates frizz while sleeping. If you hop into bed with a fresh blow out you can be pretty assured your blow-dry will be  frizz-free the next morning

Depending on how greasy your hair gets, designate a frequent hair washing schedule. This will undoubtedly be the most effective way to make sure your hair is thoroughly cleansed and nourished well before you start your day. People that really suffer from frizz may find it more beneficial to shampoo and blow-dry the evening before. Anyone who has a frizz problem knows that often second-day hair is easier to control, as freshly washed will often transform into fluff especially if humidity is in the air.

You may also want to consider hair serum options whilst applying heat to the hair. The Iles Formula Finishing Serum has custom blended ingredients including vitamins, nut oils, and silk. It is best known for its heat-protection abilities and transforms dry, brittle hair into a sumptuously silky texture with a phenomenal lustrous shine.

If your hair is prone to frizz avoid brushing at all costs between your shampoo and blow-dry sessions. Instead, opt to use a wide-tooth comb for daily maintenance that will prevent static and keep the hair fluid. We suggest the use of this Iles Formula comb for combing through conditioner, for combing curls when wet, and maintaining silky blowouts.  It a give-away gift in the Iles Formula Signature Collection box.

Embrace your curls! If you have naturally curly hair, you can still wear them without worrying about frizz. Apply products like the Iles Formula Curl Revive, which can be sprayed onto wet or dry hair. Regardless of whether you use a hair diffuser or other styling tools, it will ensure that your curls look sumptuously and beautifully formed and are protected against heat, UV, and humidity.
