My hair is midway down my back. I just started putting it in a ponytail before bed and it looks a lot better in the morning, only needs a little brushing!

I shower in the morning and conditioner always fixes any kind of tangles i’ve got going on!

I wish it was just sleeping that was the problem! Wearing a scarf, a sweater or jacket with a thick collar, a slight breeze outside… my hair is a rat’s nest 98% of the time. It drives me bonkers because my hair is stick straight with very little volume, so I have no idea where all of these crazy tangles come from. Wish I could help you!

Mine is down to my ass, dead straight and fine. It will tangle regardless, I just brush them out in the morning.

@ImaStarr:  BALLERINA BUN!!!! I have crazy long hair and this is what I do, with a clip usually. It stays comfortably and creates natural waves and volume!

Hello!

I simply pull mine up in a little twist and lay it up on my pillow. I initially started doing this simply because my hair was irritating my neck. I might get a little bit of bedhead if I’ve had a really restless night, but mostly it’s tangle-free. 🙂

Sock Bun! super easy, high on my head, no problems. I also had the problem with my hair never staying in braids, so i started doing two braids. DH calls it my “pocahontas look” also I used a product called quick braid, its for my horses but it helped mine stay put.

I pull my hair ontop of my head in a very loose bun-pony tail thing and it helps.

My hair does the same thing :(. Sometimes if you can sleep with a messy bun or braid that will help, I toss and turn too much. You could try one of those silk headwraps people use for weaves? You can find them at Sallys Beauty (whatever beauty stores in your area).

@ImaStarr:  when my hair was long, I’d twist it into a bun or braid it. I totally hear you on the braid leaving uneven marks. Twisting it definitely prevent the bumps.

@ImaStarr:  Oh god, the static….. just terrible. Long hair in the winter is the worst.

I use a detangler comb after I shower. When I sleep, I lift my hair above my head on to the pillow. I never have issues with tangles.
