Easy Tip: Go to Bed, Wake Up With Curls

Check out what reader blondeyy had to say in the Do-it-Yourself Beauty group:

Wake up with gorgeous curls — seriously, fast and easy! Spend the morning making a nice cup of tea and watching CNN rather than working on your hair.

  1. Wash your hair at night.
  2. Put your favorite styling cream in damp hair.
  3. Flip your head over (bending at the waist) and pull all hair into a scrunchie on the top of your head.
  4. Section by section, roll hair into curlers and pin. ( I have very long hair and I only need about 6-7 curlers).
  5. Everything stays on the top of your head so you don't feel a thing when you are sleeping.

In the morning: magic! Remove the curlers and scrunchie; either brush hair or finger tousle and you're done! Beautiful hair! I read this somewhere and do it all the time. It is a REAL time saver with fab results!

I assume you don't pull the ponytail too tight? If I did this I'd have flat hair around my scalp and curly elsewhere. Same question as nikisix - what kinda rollers?

sometimes, if i have shorter hair that I can't roll a bun on top of my head, I just roll mini buns on sections of my hair - so they're each smaller and flatter and won't bug me as much when I sleep. I really want to try the rollers though. I'd bet it'd turn out much more glamorous

I do this when I want beachy waves. I have naturally curly hair so at night after I shower, I put mousse in my hair, scrunch and sleep on it. Comes out so awesome the next day! LOVE doing this!! best mousse ever is the Graham Webb:Brit Style Moussing Wax.

Wearing curlers or twists to bed are a great way to wake up with curls, regardless of hair texture. I do this routinely. Thanks for sharing a great tip.
