6 Tips To Prepare Your Morning When It’s Tough To Get Out Of Bed

If you are planning on going somewhere pretty early in the morning, prep your hair the night before to allow the hair to set overnight.

Whether you detangle your hair and put it in sections or add your products to your hair to allow the moisture to seep into your hair overnight, this would be much better than trying to do it all in the morning.

This will also help for those who are on a heatless journey to use flexi rods and two strand twists for setting, instead of reaching for the flat iron or the curling iron for styling. You can take your time the night before to do your hair without rushing, then in the morning you can fluff your hair the way you like it.

If you are one who likes to have their edges laid, do that the night before with your edge tamer, toothbrush, and a satin scarf to help set your edges. Laying down edges can take the longest of any style to make sure that they are just right.

Prepare your style by weeks/months

If you know you are a busy person and just don’t have time to do your hair, then plan for a protective style that you can keep anywhere from 4-8 weeks.


This can help you to continue on your healthy hair journey, along with proper moisture and oils for your hair in your protective style. Getting a long term protective style will allow your hair to go on a much-needed vacation while you handle your other priorities. You can literally just wake up and go.

Prepare for the worst

If you literally are late for your meeting or your job, plan to wear your favorite hat that day. Whether in your morning bag or already in your car, you should keep a beanie, turban, or funky hat just in case your planned style just didn’t work out.

Also, in case your hair acts up in the middle of the day, you can pop on your hat. This will also keep you from going to the bathroom to check your hair every 5 minutes, just to make sure that it is okay.

How do you prepare your day when it’s tough to get out of bed?
