Bed Head !

The people at Casper Mattress are trying to help their sleepers control the unavoidable Bed Head, so here are some of my tips and feelings towards bed head. I get asked a lot about how I keep my curls looking fresh the next day, and to be honest with you I don't do anything. When I go to bed I don't put my hair up or do anything special unlike other women that have curly hair. My hair is naturally pretty wild so bed head doesn't really bother me. I truly believe that "perfect" bed head has a lot to do with how healthy your hair is. If you like embracing your bed head like I do I suggest you try Cantu  Grow Strong Strengthening Treatment. Before heading out in the morning I flip my head over and apply the product onto my scalp, ends and then the rest of my hair.





The benefits of this product ?
  • It smells really good
  • It's lightweight 
  • Protects hair from heat
  • Stops breakage 
  • Helps with frizz
  • Perfect for color treated hair
  • Very moisturizing
  • Keeps hair from looking brittle and weak



If you're a girl that prefers a more polished look here are some tips on how to tame bed head...
  1. Putting your hair in a very high ponytail, curly girls who do this at night usually like to call it the "pineapple" ponytail. I suggest you use a no-damage hair elastic 
  2. Sleeping with a satin pillow
  3. Take your favorite frizz tamer/or your favorite oil and rub it into your hair before bed then covering your head with a satin cap. This will give your hair a nice a little overnight treatment.


I hope this helps ! xoxo

Check out my bed head LOL
