It's Saturday night again and I just finished washing my hair. I thought it might be fun to write a quick post on how I deal with wet hair, and let it air-dry.
It's always helpful if I can wash my hair at least an hour or two before going to bed, so my hair is not quite as damp when my head hits the pillow. On nights when my hair is wet, I try to make sure I sleep on my side, or at least with my head turned to one side. My goal is to make sure I'm not sleeping on top of my hair, because it will never dry that way. I try to spread my hair across the pillow and over the side of the bed, so it gets the best chance at air-drying. Usually by morning my hair is dry.
My hair is naturally straight, and since I started using coconut oil it naturally looks straight and full. This means I don't need to use a flat-iron to make my hair look its best before wearing it down, which is wonderful since I'm always afraid that a flat-iron may damage my hair. I confess that I do blow-dry my bangs every morning, after washing them with a little shampoo. My bangs are the only part of my hair that get
After washing my hair, I like to keep it wrapped in a towel for about 20 minutes or so, sometimes longer. This helps soak up the excess water and makes it easier to comb out. I only ever use a wide-tooth comb on my hair. I have a favorite plastic wide-tooth comb that I have used for 10 years or more, it is the most perfect comb EVER and cost me $1. I've tried other combs but always go back to this one after the first or second day. I guard it with my life! hahahaha
