How often do you wake up looking like a "before picture" or looking like you just stuck your finger in an electrical socket? And how hard is it to tame your hair into submission?

One Expert Weighs In

We spoke with Suzie Bond, owner of PERFECT 5th Salon in Mooresville, North Carolina to find out how to avoid waking up with untameable hair and how to tame it once it happens. Here's what she suggests:

One way to avoid waking up with unattractive bed head is to protect your hair first!  Try using a slippery satin pillowcase.  It's easy to travel with too!  Taking it another step further, use a firm pillow. When you sink deeply into a fluffy pillow, your hair gets squished and it's sometimes difficult to recover. And finally, (if your hair is long), wear your hair in a low ponytail. This will keep your hair from traveling and twisting.

If its too late and bed head has already set in, keep a small spray bottle filled with water nearby. Just give a light spray directly to the areas that need repair. Utilizing your blowdryer and appropriate brush, restyle those areas.  A quicker fix is to hit the root area with with a dry shampoo like Texture Experts FRESH DUST. Then use your hands or blow drying technique to reposition the hair.

Cowlicks

And what about cowlicks? You know, those sections of hair that just don't seem to do what you want, no matter what? According to Wikipedia, "Cowlicks appear when the growth direction of the hair forms a spiral pattern. The term "cowlick" originates from the domestic bovine's habit of licking its young, which results in a swirling pattern in the hair." If you suddenly start getting cowlicks when you never did before, it's probably time for a haircut. If cowlicks are a regular thing for you, ask a hair stylist to recommend a new style that works with the growth of your hair instead of against it. If you're set on a style but your hair is dead set against it, there's always major styling product like strong gel, mud or wax to tame your hair into submission.
