4 Hair Hacks For An Impromptu Sleepover

sleep overSo it’s late and you and your guy are wrapping up a Netflix and chill evening and you have decided to stay the night. Only problem is you’re a natural on your healthy hair journey and you obviously didn’t think to bring your hair necessities. Fail!?

Not at all. You can make it work with these 4 simple natural hair hacks for an impromptu sleepover for any hair length.

1. Makeshift satin pillow case

No bonnet? No problem! I’m sure he has an extra pair of CLEAN basketball shorts somewhere. I mean what guy doesn’t? Basketball shorts are typically made of 100% polyester. Satin is made from polyester. Basketball shorts = pillowcase!

Ask him to borrow a pair and slip them over the pillow. This way you won’t have to deal with the harsh cotton that can harm your hair. It will also help preserve your style over night.

2. Rubberband pineapple

I don’t know why, but it seems like almost every guy has random rubber bands around their home. Where do they come from?! At any rate, if your hair is long enough to pineapple, snatch one of these and pineapple your hair over night to also preserve your style.


The next day you could also use the rubber band to do a high bun and go.

3. Olive 0il

Now the largest struggle of is waking up is the next day and trying to style it with none of your staples. First, pray to the gawds that he has some olive oil in his pantry. (Don’t date a guy who can’t cook! Haha)

For my twa naturals, your hair may have experienced a little drying over night. Splash a little water on to manipulate it and add a little moisture and then seal with the olive oil. You should be good to go.

For that in between length it’s probably going to take a little more work to bring yourself up to par. That brings me to my next point..

4. Bobby Pins!!!

Always, always, always have bobby pins! Whether they are in your car, purse, whatever. These will be your best friend in a pressing time of hair craze.

You can transform your entire look. Do a bun, the “fix it Jesus” quick do (2 flat twists around the crown of your head) or some kind of random creation that makes you look presentable.

If this has yet to happen to you, considering purchasing one of those tiny jars of edge control. ORS has a travel size that is so cute and tiny and perfect to have in your purse for pressing times.

In addition, if some of this seems a little too extreme or a little too embarrassing (like the ball shorts for a pillow case), you don’t need to be sleeping over anyway! Go home! Don’t compromise your hair health for a guy. Do you boo!

Tell me about a time you had an impromptu sleep over and had to figure out your hair situation.
