Bangs are a common hairstyle for women. They can be worn straight or curled, and they can add a ton of personality to your look.
But if you’re new to bangs or just want to try something new, it’s important that you learn how to sleep with them! So before hitting the sack with your beautiful new bangs out in full force, read this guide on how to sleep with them so that they’ll still look beautiful the next day.
What to Do with Bangs when Sleeping?
Now, it’s easy to just let your bangs be and let them be messy in the morning. All you’d need to do is just blow dry the bangs back into places, and off you go with your day.
But what if you don’t have that time in the morning? We could say you can use rollers to keep your bangs in place, but this guide is about how to sleep without them. The best bet is to do alternatives, which we will discuss below.
What Alternatives are There?
This is the part you were looking for. An alternative where you don’t have to use rollers to keep your beautiful bangs in place. Here are some alternatives that you can do:
Wearing headbands is an effective way to keep your bangs looking good the next day. This way, you don’t squash your bangs. You can use a morning spray and dry shampoo to help get your bangs back the way you want them to.
Use bobby pins
If they are not long enough to be rolled, then try using a loose bobby pin instead of a clip or barrette to hold them back on your forehead if you are wearing bangs that night.
Can You Train Your Bangs to Lay Flat?
What if you want your bangs to lie flat? Do you just ignore the fact that they’ll be sticking up and call it good? Of course not. There are a few things that can help:
Patience and persistence are key. The process takes quite some time! Be patient with yourself, as well as with your bangs, but don’t give up. If you’re persistent enough, eventually, you will see results!
Trim them regularly, so they don’t grow out of control. Keeping your bangs trimmed regularly (and sometimes even getting cut) will ensure that they stay in place when styling them down.
This is a crucial part of training your bangs because having long bangs can make things more difficult while trying to train them into place.
Use products like hair sprays or volumizers on top of gel or mousse to keep everything where it should be while styling down your hair at night.* Avoid heat styling altogether for best results!*
How Long Does it Take for Bangs to Adjust?
The time it takes for bangs to adjust depends on the individual. In general, if you want to speed up the process, try using a blow dryer on medium or low heat.
This will help your hair set into place and give you a more natural look than just letting it air dry. However, if you want to know exactly how long it will take for your bangs to adjust and grow out naturally, then I recommend just waiting it out.
Mistakes You Need to Avoid
Here are some mistakes you’ll want to avoid when sleeping at night with bangs:
Don’t sleep with hair products at night
Even though they help keep your bangs in place during the day, they can cause oils and bacteria to build, especially at nighttime.
So you’ll wake up not only with a greasy forehead but bangs that you worked so hard to perfect. So it’s best to keep all products out of your bangs until morning when you wake up.
Not detangling your hair/bangs
If your bangs are caught up in the tangle in the morning, you can actually almost ruin it by trying to sort it out. So, make sure you detangle your entire head before hitting the snooze button.
Final Thoughts on Sleeping with Bangs Without Rollers
It is possible to preserve your bangs while you sleep at night. However, rollers can break the hair, so it’s not recommended to sleep with them. The other methods we have discussed will keep them in shape without ruining them.
So, why not try them out tonight so you can wake up with beautiful bangs for tomorrow? You’ll need to style it a bit, and then you’re good to go!
