Silk is known for its ability to help prevent bedhead, and Blissy pillowcases are made from the finest 100% mulberry silk. Not only will they keep your locks looking gorgeous all day long, but they'll also help keep them healthy and hydrated.
What Is Bed Head and Why Should I Be Worried?
Bed head is caused by a number of things, but the main culprit is friction. When your strands rub against a rough surface like cotton or linen, they can become tangled and matted. This can lead to breakage, split ends, and frizz. But don't worry, we'll be talking about how to avoid bedhead in this post.
You spend too much time styling to deal with bed head
"I love blow drying my hair!" Said no one ever. If you've just blow-dried your hair or even styled it with a curling iron, no doubt you want to maintain that perfect hairstyle as long as possible! Especially if you've shelled out the additional cost of going to get a blowout at the salon.
If you have curly hair and you blow-dry your locks to make those curls straight or wavy, you're even more invested in maintaining that hairstyle because achieving that style is no easy feat!
Why bed head is your mortal enemy
Unfortunately, going to sleep usually means we're going to say hello to messy hair, tangles, frizz, and dents in the morning. In other words: bedhead. This can happen even if you've put your tresses up in a top knot or bun before going to sleep. That means you have to spend a bunch of extra time each morning restyling your hair. Boo.
How Can Blissy Help?

Can I Go to Bed With Wet Hair?
Some people prefer to shower and wash their hair in the evening. A steamy rinse is the perfect way to relax after a long day.
But the hot noisy buzz of a blow dryer in your ears while you hold a brush at the most challenging angles is far from relaxing. So you may end up going to sleep with wet hair.
One way to avoid this is by using a shower cap and saving washing your hair for the daytime. That way you can air-dry hair or heat dry it when you're feeling more amped.
Why sleeping with hair is not recommended
Going to bed with wet hair is not recommended for several reasons—not just because you wake up with wonky-looking tresses.
Moisture on your head can give you a chill at night, causing you to be uncomfortable—especially if the air conditioner kicks on.
Another reason going to bed with wet hair is a bad idea is because your strands are weaker when it's wet. Your head makes contact with your pillow and you move around as you sleep through the night. This will pull at your strands, causing breakage and damage to your hair.
Okay, it's not recommended. But I'm going to do it anyway so...how to avoid bedhead?
If you're not ready to give up your going-to-bed-with-wet-hair habit just yet, then sleeping on a silk pillowcase is the best way how to prevent bed head.
How to avoid bedhead when sleeping with wet hair:
- Blot your strands with a microfiber towel or hair turban after you get out of the shower.
- Wrap your hair in a cotton t-shirt for 10-20 minutes to remove extra moisture without causing frizz.
- Never vigorously rub your hair with a towel, especially longer hair. This is a surefire way to cause frizz.
- Comb but do not brush your still-damp hair. Brushing wet hair can lead to breakage since your strands are still weak.
- Depending on your hair type, you may want to apply a leave-in conditioner or other leave-in product midway through your strands and comb through to the ends. Do not apply to your roots.
- Braid your hair, then wrap the ends with a skinny silk scrunchie.
- Sleep on a silk pillowcase to ensure a frizz-free experience. Avoid satin pillowcases, as these are not the same.
- In the morning, unbraid your locks—your hair should be wavy and perhaps a little damp still.
- Let your hair dry naturally or spray with styling products and hit it with the blow dryer to style your hair as desired!
